After Daft is your chance to get a detailed look into iconic duo Daft Punk’s monumental impact on electronic music, live experiences, and pop culture.
French duo Daft Punk is arguably one of the most influential acts to grace the music scene that we know and love. They exceeded expectations to a level of success and visibility during their careers before calling it quits in early 2021. While it might be the end of this epic era of Daft Punk many are looking to celebrate the impact the duo had on the scene, and a recently announced book called After Daft has given fans something to get giddy about.
After Daft will dive deep into the genre and industry-defining aspects of Daft Punk’s career and further show just how influential these generational icons really are. Author Gabriel Szatan has been working hard to get the most thorough documentation known to date on the unique duo covering their entire career from their formation in 1993 to split in 2021.
It’s safe to say that this biography will be unlike most. After Daft will take an in-depth look at Daft Punk’s seminal Alive 2006-07 tour: a production that one could say changed the look and feel of live music forever. The book will also give readers an inside look at the ones who inspired the duo, such as veteran house and techno DJs and artists of Chicago and Detroit, as well as other influencing artists in the arts and music around the world.
The book is due to be released in 2023 by John Murray Press/Hachette UK and details about contributors and their involvement are said to be brought to the light closer to the publication date.
