Roisto – No Regrets

Regular readers around here will be familiar with the fact that both Fourbearsjr and myself are kind of obsessed with the 80's tinged discofied Frenchtouch sound of guys like Alan Braxe, Fred Falke and Madeon etc… Back in the mid to late 90's when the early French sound emerged, via Daft Punk and Cassius it was difficult to envisage how big a movement within dance music it was going to be.   I can remember being...

Jean Tonique – Un Reve A Deux

Just a quick one tonight but i wanted to pop up this track that has been soundtracking my sun filled journeys to work and my lazy moments by the pool.   The French producer/multi instrumentalist Jean Tonique has been getting a lot of coverage for a while (or so i read) and this track is from 2016 (i think). Whatever, it is fantastic – Aapie and I are suckers for this kind of thing. A...

Roisto – Come On

It's not hard to spot the influence on Roisto's new track Come On, it's classic French Filter Disco House, reminiscent of Roulé  and Scratché and artists like the Buffalo Bunch and Bangalter. It's a genuine throwback a hard overly compressed pumping one bar disco loop with a snappy vocal loop running through it that worms it's way into your ears and doesn't stop until it's embedded in your brain.   As with a lot of the French...

Birdee – Hold On

I've not been able to post for a fair while due to travelling with work, flying is a complete pain in the balls, but it does give me a chance to listen to music and this week my various treks across the globe have been sound tracked by the New Youth Control EP, Birdee – Three Sides of Love.   It's an interesting EP, I guess in some ways Birdee's EP is a bit of departure...

Fred Falke – 808pm at the Beach

Diving into the crates today to pluck out a longtime favourite of mine Fred Falke – 808pm at the Beach.   It's the end of summer here and as everything starts to cool down the weather is absolutely perfect for lounging around and enjoying the evenings, and i guess that's why ive been listening to a lot of the French Touch material, of which Falke is probably one of the best exponents.   808pm is typical...

Roisto – Apart in Love

I had a day off today so i'm going to take a freebie and choose something that both Fourbearsjr and myself have been arguing over who's going to post for a good week or so now. Roisto – Apart in Love One of my favourite periods in dance music is the early 00's, and the whole French touch house scene, it's often looked on as a bit cheesy, due to the fact it literally took over...

DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter – Together

Sometime the only thing that can wake you up in the morning is some nosebleed inducing thumping house and having had a pretty late night yesterday i decided to shuffle through an old Daft Punk inspired playlist, hit this and thought "yeah, why not?" DJ Falcon & Thomas Bangalter – Together This is one of those tracks you would hear in every club you went to. It was around the summer of 2000 and it...

Phoenix – Fences (LeMarquis Remix)

Despite waking up to rain this morning summer is most definitely here to stay (he says hopefully), so it was a summery pop style playlist I decided to bump on my way to work. Now over the weekend i'd downloaded the great new track by Le Marquis –  Warm Me Up (you can grab it here) and it reminded me of the superb remix he did of Phoenix's Fences earlier this year which then got stuck in my...
