Daft Punk: A Trip inside the Pyramid
Daft Punk are one of the most enigmatic and mysterious groups to exist in the modern age. Erupting out of the French house movement in the nineties, they continue to craft hugely popular, electronic masterpieces behind an inscrutable persona.
Daft Punk: A Trip Inside The Pyramid is the first book to pull together the complete story of Grammy award-winning Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the French musicians behind the legendary masks. Their earliest influences — as diverse as Barry Manilow, Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk and Andy Warhol — and their rise to international stardom are depicted with stunning, full-colour photography.
Rare photos, insights and revelations adorn the history of electronic music, a culture now permeated with Daft Punk’s enduring legacy.

Drawing together music genres including house, new beat, breakbeat, acid house and techno, Rave was a movement or even a protest. Growing out of the Manchester acid house scene of the 1980’s (itself an import form Chicago), the scene took root in the 1990s as a defiance of authority. Illegal gatherings in fields, disused airstrips, warehouse and squats put the Ravers at odds with the law.
Clubs including Fabric, Ministry of Sound, Sankey’s, Cream and Heaven owed their birth to Rave and the Hacienda included Rave in its extensive repertoire. Our selection includes 24 Hour Party People by Tony Wilson, Daft Punk: A Trip inside the Pyramid by Dino Santorelli and more.
