Not all of us can be as talented as the French duo, Daft Punk. Musically in tune, these cool-helmeted robots really know how to get the funk on when they have to.
At the peak of their success and ever climbing, their music is electronic,
robotic and out of this world.
An eccentric pop sensation, their latest songs, Get Lucky and and Lose Yourself To Dance (with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rogers) are super cool and amazing!

Making Music the Da Funk Way
With a blend of good, old-fashioned house music and electronic distortion, Daft Punk keep on coming with the singles that are unlike anything else heard on the radio. Having formed two decades ago in 1993, these guys have been slowly developing and evolving a collaborative synthesized pop style all of their own.
Ever since the release of their debut album Homework in 1997, this gifted pair have been blazing a trail through the mainstream music scene. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter may be the two anonymously disguised musicians behind the masks, but that doesn't mean you can't mix it up with them. "And, how can I do that?" I hear you ask. Well, here's how . . .
Sound Like A Robot
Creating music with Daft Punk music is quickly becoming an insatible craze among young and old fans, alike. Even Kanye West has been doing it with his song titled Stronger. Now you can do it too.
With the visuals of a soundboard, Daft Punk Song Creator is an music game featuring over 150 sounds and rhythms, that you can alter and utilize for your own entertainment and fun song making. Nothing serious here – it's just a game.
Even if it sounds really bad playing your first song, there is no one else to hear it but you. Is that great, or what?
Song Creator, Music Maker or Song Maker
Growing in popularity, the Song Creator is online and available for free, and involves mixing beats, bass lines and energetic melodies into your own musical score.
Sampling clips from some of the band's classic songs like Around The World, One More Time or Harder Better Faster Stronger, you too can be a maestro on the keyboard or virtual mixing machine. It is simply a matter of 'drag and drop' to get your own electronic vibe happening – just like a robot.
A cool way of creating electronic music, this free song-making game has a variety of different names, appearances and features. There are also new, updated versions of the music game coming online all the time.
If you are interested in checking out the best, here are a few I personally suggest you try:
• Daft Punk Song Creator 2 by Much Games
• Daft Punk Keymixer 2 by Newgrounds, and
• iDaft – the Daft Punk Console by Najle.
Creating Robot Music
With multiple virtual keyboards or continuous background beats, it doesn't matter what style of game you choose. It's easy to start mixing it up online with a collage of beats and sounds.
Daft Punk may have all the hits, but now you can now create your own along with them. You might not get nominated for a Grammy Award like the band but it's a start.
When remixing and recreating some of the band's greatest hits, it's all about having a bit of fun. There's nothing more 'technologic' than making robot music like this!
