Daft Punk’s Essential Mix turns 20 years old today: Listen

A classic from the vault of BBC Radio 1…

Daft Punk’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix turns 20 years old today (Thursday 2nd March). You can listen to it below.

The original recording went out in the early hours of Sunday 2nd March 1997, and featured music by Armand Van Helden, Paul Johnson, Roy Davis Jr., DJ Deeon and Cajmere, as well as the French duo’s own work.

It been a massive year for Daft Punk so far with the launch of their LA-based pop-up shop, Daft Punk-themed Snapchat filters, and a (slightly underwhelming) Grammys performance, alongside incessant rumours that a 2017 tour and potential new album are in the works.

Listen to Daft Punk’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix from 1997 below.
