Good Morning Mix: Revisit Daft Punk’s visionary 1997 Essential Mix

It’s true: everybody hates Monday mornings, but that’s not to say they can’t be improved with some good old upbeat tunes. Today, we take a trip down memory lane, revisiting Daft Punk‘s 1997 Essential Mix, where the pioneering French duo show their mastery in all things house and disco across 2 hours of inundated 90’s mixing.

Released nearly 25 years ago, Daft Punk’s first Essential Mix represents a simpler time for the robo-electronic outfit, pre-dating iconic releases like Discovery, Random Access Memories, and Alive 2007 by years, if not decades. While more recent live performances, particularly the aforementioned Alive set, focus on the raw-electro power and musical synergy of the group’s more contemporary productions, their Essential Mix debut falls closer to the realm of two music junkies experimenting with new sounds and just throwing down some of their personal favorites.
