Thomas Bangalter (born 3 January 1975) is a French musician, record producer, DJ, and composer.
He is best known as one half echipa Daft Punk'sfinding partner Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
As a member of the trio Stardust, the pair Together, and as a solo performer with compositions for films such as Irréversible, he has recorded and released music.
Bangalter's work has influenced a diverse range of musicians, many of whom are active in different genres.
His credits include film producer and cinematographer outside of music production.
Bangalter was born in Paris, France, on January 3rd, 1975. At the age of six, he began playing banjolele. He has claimed that his parents were stringent in keeping up his routine, which he later thanked them. Daniel Vangarde, his father, was a songwriter and producer for musicians like the Gibson Brothers, Ottawan, and Sheila B. Devotion. "I had no intention to do what my father was doing," Bangalter said. Bangalter's father is Jewish, but the family does not consider themselves religious.
While attending the Lycée Carnot school in 1987, Bangalter met Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. They discovered their common obsession with films and music of the 1960s and 1970s, from Easy Rider to the Velvet Underground." They and Laurent Brancowitz then formed Darlin', an indie rock band in which Bangalter played bass guitar. Bangalter claimed that "It's still perhaps more of a teenage thing at the time." It's like, you know, everyone wants to be in a band." According to Bangalter and de Homem-Christo's new band name, a negative review from Melody Maker magazine referred to their music as "a daft punky thrash."
Daft Punk became interested in electronics as a child, which led Brancowitz to leave the group in search of collaboration with fellow Parisian band Phoenix. Bangalter performed Daft Punk material to Stuart Macmillan of Slam in 1993, which culminated in the first single "The New Wave." Daniel Vangarde gave the pair valuable tips. "He aided us in revealing to us what the situation was like with the record industry and how it worked." "We made certain choices in order to get what we wanted," says the author.
Bangalter was a member of the Da Mongoloids, which included Armand Van Helden, Bangalter, and Junior Sanchez, and was part of the Strictly Rhythm group in 1996. Spark da Meth was their first album, and it was their first dance.
Vangarde was praised for his participation in the Homework liner notes. Homework was also recorded in Bangalter's bedroom, which is partially responsible for the album's name. "I had to move the bed into another room to make room for the furniture," he remarked. Bangalter spent the years after the 1997 release of Roulé ("rolled" in French). Among others, Romanthony, Roy Davis Jr., and Bangalter's own solo work were among the label's singles. In 1995 and 1998, Bangalter's solo projects were released on two vinyl-only EPs titled Trax on Da Rocks. The EPs' "Outrun," "Extra Dry," and "Turbo" were later included in the video game Midnight Club II. In a "Da Funk" behind-the-scenes video released with D.A.F.T., the song "On da Rocks" was featured. A tale about dogs, Androids, Firemen, and Tomatoes. Bangalter worked with Alan Braxe and Benjamin Diamond, and under the banner Stardust, the club's 1998 release of "Music Sounds Better With You" was released. The single was recorded in Bangalter's home studio, just as for Homework.
Bangalter co-produced Bob Sinclar's second album, "Gym Tonic," at the same time as "Music Sounds Better With You." The single sparked a minor controversy because it contained samples from a Jane Fonda workout tape, which led Fonda herself not to ask for the single's release. Spacedust, a different act, released a re-recorded version of the track, titled "Gym and Tonic" under East West Records, bringing greater commercial success. Soon after "Music Sounds Better With You" peaked at number two in the same chart, "Gym and Tonic" became a top-one single in the United Kingdom shortly after "Music Sounds Better with You" peaked at number two.
Bangalter and de Homem-Christo met in Romanthony in 1998, when they would be the first of the Discovery sessions. "One More Time" adrian's most well-received single in 2000, Daft Punk's most popular single. Bangalter appeared on a Yamaha CS-60 synthesizer on the track "Embescade" in Phoenix's debut album United, which was also released the same year. He also worked with DJ Falcon to produce their eponymous 2000 single.
Bangalter made the score to the film Irréversible, which was released in 2002. Bangalter's tracks as well as the film's works, Étienne Daho, and Beethoven were included in the album. Only the Bangalter songs appear in the album's North American pressings. On the album, three of Trax on da Rocks EPs were released: "Outrun," "Ventura," and "Extra Dry." The Bangalter produced song "113 Fout La Merde" for French hip hop group 113 was also released in 2002. Bangalter can be seen dancing in the music video, sporting his Daft Punk helmet.
In 2003, the two bands "So Much Love to Give" were released. Temporally thought to be a Together album on Eric Prydz's album "Valerie." Together had previously sampled "Valerie" in their solo mixes prior to Prydz's appearance, but there was no intention to release it as a single, according to DJ Falcon. Daft Punk's third studio album, Human After All, was released in 2005. "Every album we've produced is closely linked to our lives," de Homem-Christo said. [...] Thomas' internal and personal life during Human After All brought it closer to where he was at the time.
Bangalter was the sound effects director for the 2009 film Enter the Void, his second collaboration with filmmaker Gaspar Noé after Irréversible. Bangalter had been asked by Noé to compose the soundtrack of Enter the Void, but he was preoccupied with his work on the Tron: Legacy score at the time. Rather than providing clip of drones and ambiance for the film, Bangalter introduced various clips of drones and ambiance for the film, which would be accompanied by songs by other artists from the 1960s and 1970s. He is listed in the credits as the sound effects producer, and the film's title "Désaccords" was originally intended for Irréversible.
Bangalter produced and choreographed a short film starring Élodie Bouchez that was used as an advertisement for the fashion line Co. a year later, Bangalter scored the short film First Point directed by Richard Phillips and starring Lindsay Lohan.
Random Access Memories, Bangalter and Homem-Christo's fourth studio album, was released in 2013. Giorgio Moroder, one of the project's collaborators, recalled that the pair had a perfectionist approach; despite the fact that only Bangalter would know the difference. Daft Punk produced and co-wrote two songs from The Weeknd's third studio album, "Starboy" and "I Feel It Coming," the former of which became the duo's first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2016. Daft Punk also produced and co-wrote a single for the Australian electropop band Parcels in June 2017. Daft Punk's last released single will be the single.
Bangalter was one of the creators of Arcade Fire's album Everything Now, which debuted in July 2017.
He reunited with Noé in 2018, delivering two tracks from the film Climax, including the previously unveiled "Sangria." Later, he co-produced and co-wrote two songs from Matthieu Chedid's 2019 album Lettre Infinite, as well as mastering the album. For the song's twentieth anniversary, Alan Braxe and Benjamin Diamond announced that they and Bangalter have returned to the studio to produce a remastered version of "Music Sounds Better with You." On June 28, 2019, the remaster was announced.
Daft Punk announced their split on February 22, 2021. Bangalter unveiled a handwritten note quoting the Daft Punk song "Touch" alongside a clip from the 1936 film Modern Times, in which one character tells another to smile before walking away into the distance. Todd Edward Gulfalter and Homem-Christo are still operational, and Bangalter and Homem-Christo are still functioning separately, and Bangalter in particular is looking at prospective solo projects.
Following Daft Punk's departure, Bangalter's first big solo project, titled Mythologies, presented by Ballet Preljocaj, would be released in July 2021. The 90-minute ballet, which premiered in July 2022, features direction and choreography by Angelin Preljocaj, as well as original music by Bangalter, with musical direction by Romain Dumas.
