French touch – 10 of the best

Daft Punk, St Germain and others reinvented French music in the mid 90s, when they married old disco loops to house beats and made something beautiful. Here are the tracks with the most magical touch.

1. St Germain – Sentimental Mood
In the early 1990s, French music was something of a joke; an easy punchline for British exchange students who were otherwise intimidated by the sophistication of their hosts. St Germain (AKA Ludovic Navarre, whose first new album in 15 years came out in October) was the first sign that things were changing. His 1995 album Boulevard was a massive hit with British journalists and public alike, named album of the year in the dance music magazine Muzik and paving the way for the new generation of producers whose music would later be banded together as the French touch.
2. Motorbass – Ezio
Motorbass, the Parisian duo of Phillippe Zdar and Étienne de Crécy, were key players in the French touch, both together and individually. Zdar would go on to form Cassius, whose self-titled 1999 album is a French touch perennial, while De Crécy would produce the stunning Super Discount project. Motorbass’s lone studio album, Pansoul, arguably remains the highlight of their recording careers, though. Released in 1996, three years after the duo’s debut, Transphunk EP, Pansoul provided the second sign, after St Germain, that something was afoot in the French house underground
3.Fantom – Faithful
When people talk about the French touch sound they’re usually thinking of songs like Faithfull by Fantom, a one-off pseudonym of Parisian producer and DJ Gregory collaborator Julien Jabre. As with Venus, there’s very little to Faithfull: a sample from T-Connection’s At Midnight, a phasing effect, an angry bass drum, chattering hi-hats and train sounds taken from Telex’s Moskow Diskow. It could easily be boring. But so elegant is the result, so lush and nonchalantly funky, that it draws you in like the snake in The Jungle Book. Faithfull also earns French touch bonus points by being included on both Daft Punk’s 1997 Essential Mix and Paris Is Sleeping, Respect Is Burning, a key compilation of Paris house music from 1998, inspired by the Respect Is Burning club night.
4. Phoenix – Heatwave
In 2015, Phoenix are one of the biggest mainstream rock bands around, their yacht-rock-inspired guitar pop taking them to headline slots at the Pitchfork festival and the US top 10. In 1999, though, they were part of the French touch. There was the Daft Punk connection for a start, with Phoenix guitarist Laurent Brancowitz having played alongside Bangalter and De Homem-Christo in their pre-Daft Punk band Darlin’. And Phoenix also recorded for Source, a label indelibly linked to the French touch thanks to releases by Air and Étienne de Crécy and its Source Lab compilations. But the most obvious reason for the French touch tag was the sound of Heatwave, the band’s second single. It takes the French touch’s obsession with disco samples to its logical conclusion by being a full-on disco song: four minutes of chicken-scratch guitar, tight-trousered bass and metronomic drums, all driven by gorgeous, wistful chord changes straight out of the Air song book. It is a genuinely beautiful song.

pffft IDK what do you know about French music back in the 60s? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anne Cherchait L'Amour, Jardin Botanique, Cellulose Sunshine are some of my ATF (all time favorite) French songs. They have aged like fine wine.

Elli et Jacno - Anne Cherchait L'Amour


Opera Multi Steel - Jardin Botanique


Stereolab - Cellulose Sunshine

The Plasticines
Les Sirènes Débrouillardes
Jolie Cherie
Fabienne Delsol
Aline

Aline - "Je bois et puis je danse"


Fabienne Delsol - Your Queen

Aline reminds me of French post-punk and cold wave ..: Martin Dupont , Norma Loy , Ruth , Opera Multi Steel ,Guerre Froide ,Elli&Jacno, Kas Product.
If you like this kind of music I suggest you a must have cds ''Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes'' Post Punk, Cold Wave et Culture novö en France 1978-1983.
Cold Waves + Minimal Electronics Volume One. New Wave, Synth-pop, Minimal 1981-1986.
Than Space '' Magic fly'', a kind of Space Disco style.
