Daft Punk’s debut album ‘Homework’ turns 21 this week

Wow. Feeling as old as ever right now knowing that a bulk you reading this weren’t even born when this album was dropped, but we gotta wish the happiest birthdays to Daft Punk for what was their inaugural studio album and introduction to what would be their utter dominance in electronic music – ‘Homework’.

The 16-track LP was released on Virgin ficially on January 20th, 1997 and is home to over 73 minutes timeless, progressive electronic music, as seen on tracks such as ‘Da Funk’, ‘Alive’, ‘Human After All’ and all the rest. Start to finish, it is a classic.

As mentioned prior, ‘Homework’ helped kick start a global domination for Daft Punk, that was well and truly cemented come 2001 with their follow up album, ‘Discovery’. The album also inspired a new generation electronic artistry, and for that it deserves the classiest hat-tips from me.

Relive one our favourite tracks from ‘Homework’ below and enjoy.
