”Daft Punk’s Discovery is a record that looked into the future and liked what it saw. An album that predicted the electronic music explosion, Youtube and the end of privacy, while dragging soft rock back into vogue.”

The author Ben Cardew pays tribute to one of the most influential electronic acts of all time while recounting memories from the duo’s most celebrated work.

The Velocity Press official page goes on to say:

“Discovery as a cultural phenomenon, placing the album at the centre of celebrity culture, fan clubs, video, the music business etc., while also examining its profound musical impact.”
