Released: March 1997

Too many DJs and producers misuse repetition, using the device to prop up their lack of ideas and innate creative laziness. Not so Daft Punk, whose genius manipulation of just three words and five instruments created an almost illegally infectious club classic that’s survived nearly fifteen years of so-called innovation in dance music. Michel Gondry recognised their smart manipulation of just a few noises and created a stunning music video to match featuring robots and disco girls dancing the disparate elements of the track. A set text for any budding DJ to this day. (TC)
