Classic House Record
on 27 February 2008
Reclusive French electronica legends Daft Punk, delivered their finest moment with this classic album of house and techno.
Most young people will probably be familiar with Daft Punk after Kanye West sampled Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger on his hit Stronger last year. What they probably don't realise is just how influential Daft Punk have been on the dance music scene for many years and how many musicians have been inspired by their filtered electronic funk. They are genius at spotting perfect samples in obscure records and using them to devastating effect on big brash electronic stompers. Daft Punk's heavy bass and vocodered vocals were way ahead of the times when they released Homework and despite the more commercial success of 'One More Time' from the Discovery album, 'Around the World' and 'Da Funk' remain their best work. Homework is full of similarly good production and other standout tracks include 'Rollin' and Scratchin' and 'Teachers'. It's hard to imagine that this album is over ten years old when it sounds as fresh as this.
