Even though Daft Punk didn’t turn out to be big until after Discovery, their very first album Homework takes up a prominent spot in the duo’s history. Homework comes prior to the robot persona of the group, which was debuted in 1999, and demonstrates a specifically rare and intimate appearance at the productions that they had been in love with at the time.
Like a lot of house music at the time, most of the songs were cut with disco samples and were placed on loops. Daft Punk managed to put a lot of their soul and character into the record. With influences from Frankie Knuckles and Juan Atkins, or Romanthony and Todd Edwards (the latter two who had been referred to in “Teachers” on the album), Homework was a stepping stone for the careers of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
Songs that went big from the album are Around The World, Da Funk and Alive.
