Daft Punk release rare, unmasked live version of ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ from 1997: Watch

Daft Punk have shared a rare, unmasked live performance of 'Rollin & Scratchin' from their archives online. Watch the recording below.

The French duo first shared the clip as part of a one-off Twitch stream last year, during which they broadcast a full set filmed in LA's Mayan Theater in 1997. The stream marked the one-year anniversary of their split in 2021, and the 25th anniversary of their landmark debut 'Homework'. Now fans can revisit the performance sans robot masks via Daft Punk's YouTube channel.

This continues Daft Punk's post-breakup practice of digging deep into their archives to release refreshed videos and clips, such as this remastered versions of the 'Da Funk' and 'Revolution' 909' videos. They even joined TikTok in October 2022. 

Revisit Gabriel Szatan's January 2022 feature looking back on Daft Punk's iconic 'Homework' for its 25th anniversary featuring interviews with DJ Deeon, Neil Landstrumm and more. Szatan's new book 'After Daft', to be published by John Murray Press/Hachette UK later this year, explores the duo's nearly three-decade run and impact on electronic music.
