The Masked Heroes of Electronic Music

| Monday, May 17th, 2010 | 2 Comments »

It all began with a duo known as Daft Punk. Mysterious, talented and just plain bad-ass, they set a trend that still influences artists today. In recent years, with the reincarnation of Daft Punk since Coachella 2006, many Electro and Nu-Disco/Indie Dance artists are popping up following the same style code: never (or at least rarely) showing their faces and rockin’ crowds wearing masks. Below are a list of some of my favorite Masked Heroes of Electronic Music.
