A Daft Punk DJ chart from 1997 has surfaced

By the end of January 1997, French producers Daft Punk had put themselves firmly on the map with their debut album.

‘Homework’ has gone on to become one of electronic music’s defining albums characterised by tracks like ‘909 Revolution’, ‘Da Funk’ and ‘Around The World’.

Following its release, Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo were asked by Germany’s Groove for a top 10 chart and some of their picks are a little surprising.

While classic French touch appears in the form of DJ Gregory’s remix of ‘Venus’ and Bangalter’s own ‘Spinal Scratch’, so does alternative rock band Ween and the r'n'b stylings of Babyface.

See the full top 10 below.
