How Daft Punk Has Influenced Other Musicians

Daft Punk is an electronic music duo that consists of French musicians, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. There are numerous artists who helped inspire the group to fame, and it is reported that both group members share the love of Elton John's music, The Rolling Stones, and other famous rock groups. However, their music is much more techno and futuristic.

The duo has been recognized as the most influential musical group to permanently change the way French house music is performed. After the release of their first album, Homework, it was certain that Euro pop was around to stay. While both members of the band were inspired by all types of musical musicians, Daft Punk has made such a staple in the music industry that they have also inspired other musicians.

After Daft Punk became popular, all types of electronic techno music bands were born. This was when the genre became more like pop music than techno. Many people became bored with the route that the French music scene was taking, and UK producers quickly came out with new sounds that reflected the style of Daft Punk.

One band that rose to fame after Daft Punk released their first album was Air. For around 10 years, Air has been a leader in electronic sound, much to the thanks of Daft Punk. Other musical groups tried to recreate the sounds of Daft Punk and the style of Air, but have not been quite as successful.

In recent years, a new style of French electronic music has arrived, with bands like Justice and Miss Kittin. Justice's remix of Simian's "Never Be Alone" has managed to be a large hit in the dance music and indie music industry. Labels such as Edbanger and Arcade Mode are around to help promote the new talent that arose after being influenced by Daft Punk.
