5 days. I mean I can’t really believe it. Daft Punk is this week. Holy shit. But anyway, back on December 30, 1997, Daft Punk performed on BBC Radio 1‘s Essential Mix. The result was a 2 hour epic French house mixtape that covered the entire spectrum of Guy and Thomas’s musical influences. I know 2 hours seems like a long time to listen to something, but you really just have to sit and listen to the whole thing. Trust me, I’ve done it 10 or 12 times already;)
