Daft Punk: The Discovery Phase

DiscoveryThe duo of Daft Punk continues to amaze their fans and even bring new fans to their quake. Each album that the band has released has been a teaser and a large event for their fan base due to the fact that the group usually waits several years before releasing a new album. Due to this, each varying amount of years between the albums are referred to as a different "phase" or "era" of the band. The "Discovery phase", for example, was the time period between 1999 and 2004.

By the time the year 1999 rolled around, the duo was already well under way with their recording sessions of their second album to be released, Discovery. After the release of Discovery, listeners were aware at how much more distinct their electronic pop style had progressed, and stunned fans at how different the material was from their first album. During interviews, the duo stated that the album was a method of reconnection with an open-minded way of thinking that is in collaboration with the discovery phase of childhood.

Due to this new way of thinking, it might be accountable for the groupís use of music methods used during the late 1970s music and early 80s. Despite their change in music theory, their album was a huge hit, and even reached the number 2 slot in the United Kingdom. Their single, "One More Time" was a worldwide hit in all of the major clubs, which helped create a whole new fan base generation.

In addition, their singles "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," and "Digital Love," were other popular hits in both the UK and in the United States. In 2003, Daft Punk produced their animated film "Interstella 5555", with the help of Leiji Matsumoto, who both members said was their childhood hero. To help promote the film, the album Daft Club was released, which features a collaboration of remixes made available to fans through an online membership program.
