Hear Daft Punk’s 1997 ‘Essential Mix’ Again For the First Time


On January 17, 1997, Daft Punk released their debut album Homework. At the time, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were just two starry-eyed Parisian kids with a stack of vinyl jams and a dream. But Homework was special, proving that the camera-shy twentysomethings had a deft touch in the studio and, ultimately, their take drew worldwide attention to the incredible ’90s French house sound.


Then, a month after Homework‘s release, Daft Punk broadcast their first – and only – ‘Essential Mix’ for Pete Tong’s influential BBC Radio 1 show. As you’ll hear below, the historic two-hour transmission showcased their early dance influences, including Chicago greats like Cajmere and Roy Davis Jr., Parisian house pioneers Cassius and Pepe Bradock and, of course, various early Daft Punk and Roulé classics like “Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Oh Yeah,” among others.

Now, 18 years later, this definitive 120-minute mix stands as a nostalgic time capsule, rollin’ and scratchin’ across filter-y disco, ghetto house, acid trax and even driving techno, that peers into the nascent minds of Daft Punk on the cusp of conquering the entire electronic music world. It’s the ultimate flashback Friday selection, for your listening pleasure. Daft Punk – 1997 ’til forever.
