Homework (25th Anniversary Edition)
Daft Punk once described 1997’s Homework as their attempt to prove you could make an album in your bedroom with next to nothing. It sounded, on the face of it, like club music, but it also captured the immediacy of two friends (Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) bouncing off the walls to whatever felt good to them. Which, in effect, is what Daft Punk was. The album’s title was conceived with purpose: Homework sounded like kids preparing for a bigger, more adult test, but also like work made—simply and lovingly—at home. For listeners unfamiliar with the dance-music subcultures the group drew on, the album had the cheerful quality of a guided tour: This is what house sounds like, these are its textures and shapes, this is how it thumps when you play it loud—and, in the case of “Teachers,” this is who created it. But at a time when the most visible forms of mainstream electronic music were the rock-influenced hybrids of big beat (The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy), Homework proved that pure dance music could appeal to mainstream audiences without being mixed with anything. Its genius was in its simplicity: Even if you thought “Da Funk” or “Around the World” were irritating, you wouldn’t quickly forget hearing them. They were dance tracks that functioned like toys: clever, creative little constructions that were easy to grasp and, in their additive-and-subtractive builds, highly addictive. And to rock-oriented purists who associated synthesizers with pretense and bloat, Homework was as minimal as the Ramones and as powerful as AC/DC. In its bright, simple rigidity, Homework opened a world where listeners could let go.

Daft Punk returns to social media, releases deluxe 'Homework' album
New York (AFP) – Exactly one year after French duo Daft Punk shocked fans by announcing an unceremonious split, they've returned to social media and are hosting a one-day-only livestream of a 1997 show on Twitch.
Issued on: 23/02/2022 - 00:34
The era-defining dancefloor act began the livestream at 2:22 Pacific time -- and on 02-22-22 no less -- sharing rare footage from their December 12, 1997 show in Los Angeles when they played the set without their iconic helmets.
Daft Punk also released a deluxe anniversary edition of their debut album "Homework," which came out 25 years ago.
From "Da Funk" in 1995 to "Get Lucky" in 2013, Daft Punk became the torch-bearers for French house music across the globe, winning six Grammy awards and pioneering the monumental sound-and-light shows that came to characterise the electronic dance movement (EDM) of recent years.
They did so while almost never revealing their faces: the ubiquitous helmets became another much-copied trope of EDM stars, but also afforded Thomas Bangalter, 47, and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, 48, freedom from the fame that quickly encircled them.
Their fourth and last album, 2013's "Random Access Memories", was a phenomenal success, winning them four Grammys the following year including best record for "Get Lucky", the millions-selling lead single featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.

Sorry, Daft Punk aren’t reforming just yet – but they have dropped a deluxe edition of their debut album ‘Homework’
- By Stephen Ackroyd
- Tue 22nd February, 2022
Earlier today (22nd February), we saw Daft Punk start to splutter back into life , provoking hopes they may be about to reverse their decision to split, a year ago to the day.
Sadly, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Instead, they’ve released a digital deluxe edition of their debut album ‘Homework’, featuring fifteen remixes. Nine of these have never been on streaming services before, with contributions from the likes of Masters At Work, DJ Sneak, Todd Terry, Motorbass, Slam, Ian Pooley, I:Cube, Roger Sanchez & Junior Sanchez, and more.
‘Homework’ and their live album ‘Alive ’97’, will also be getting a vinyl release on 15th April.
As well as the new edition, the duo have also shared video of their 17th December 1997 show at The Mayan in Los Angeles as a one-time-only stream. It’ll appear on their new Twitch channel at 2:22 Pacific Time today. I.e. right now. You can tune in here.
