Grammy-winning music duo, Daft Punk, the Parisian duo, who are responsible for some of the most popular dance and pop songs ever made, have split. They broke the news with an 8-minute video titled “Epilogue,” excerpted from their 2006 film Electroma.

Their  Long-time publicist, Kathryn Frazier confirmed the news to Pitchfork but gave no reason for the breakup.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo formed Daft Punk in Paris in 1993, helping to define the French touch style of house music. In 1997, they released their debut album titled,  Homework, which was dance music.

In 2001, the duo had taken to making public appearances in the robot outfits that fast became their trademark.

In 2001, the music pair discussed their style of music in an unusual interview with Interview Magazine with Thomas saying: “We incorporate a lot of American and English-based influences, but take them completely out of context.

“The way we listen to Chicago house music, disco, heavy metal or punk is completely artistic, without the political side of it”

“But then we used it in a political way ourselves, which is making music at home, recycling and by combining those styles at home and doing it in a very new way.”
