French musician (electro and house music), son of musician and producer Daniel Vangarde. He founded a group, Darlin', with his friend Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo after having met him at school in 1987. An angry English critic called them "Daft Punk!" and they kept that as stage name. They are known for wearing masks during concerts and so stay (nearly) anonymous. In 2009, Daft Punk received a Grammy Award in the USA.

In 2013, their single "Get lucky" (featuring the American rapper Pharrell Williams) becomes a huge hit. On 26 January 2014, Daft Punk wins 5 Grammy Awards.

On 22 February 2021, Daft Punk announced they had split via a You Tube video.
