Classic Mixes: Daft Punk “BBC Essential Mix” (1997)

House / Techno

18 years ago, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo recorded this session for BBC’s now legendary “Essential Mix” series.

This session has aged very well considering how trendy the mid to late 90’s sound are right now. The two young Dafts blend House à la French Touch, US Garage and Deep House and even slightly more ghetto house flavors like Dance Mania and Cajual Records.
