DAFT Punk have announced they are breaking up after 28 years in the business. 

The enigmatic French dance duo got their big break when they met a Glasgow label boss at a rave at Paris' EuroDisney. 

Stuart Macmillan, one of the men behind Glasgow techno giants Slam, signed the budding producers after the chance meeting.

The Glasgow-based label Soma Quality Recordings released their first single The New Wave in 1994 and had chart success with their floor-filler Da Funk a year later. 

In 1996, the band signed with Virgin Records and went on to enjoy huge chart success and critical acclaim. 

A year later, touring their debut album Homework, the masked twosome came back to Glasgow to perform at the legendary Arches nightclub.

They reportedly enjoyed visiting the club freed from their recognisable robot heads in the nineties, according to David Bratchpiece, who is writing a book about the Argyle Street spot. 

Responding to the break-up news, he wrote on Twitter: "Find out which Glasgow nightspot Daft Punk used to fly over from Paris to visit and dance incognito amongst the crowd in the upcoming book 'Brickwork' *end shameless plug*" 

Despite not releasing any new music since featuring on The Weeknds' 2016 album Starboy, the news has come as a shock to legions of devoted fans.
