French touch – 10 of the best

4252
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.

St Germain’s music had little to do with the frantic, filtered disco loops that would later typify French dance music in the 90s. Instead, it took hip-hop, reggae and jazz and gently caressed them into the deep house mould, achieving the nigh-on impossible task of making 10-minute saxophone solos sound like fun. Sentimental Mood, from Boulevard, is the perfect example of his sorcery. The song uses little more than jazzy piano chords, shuffling house drums and a saxophone over its 10-minute length, which sounds like a recipe for wretched boredom. And yet Sentimental Mood has just enough tension to keep you on the edge of your seat, the disparate elements playing off each other, subtly shifting and mutating in a way that makes the addition of a second piano chord seem almost as exciting as a Keith Moon drum fill.

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.

The 10 tracks within are recognisably house music, with a touch of the deepest Detroit techno. But there is something uniquely European about them. They are full of the freedom to experiment that being outside the US and UK dance scenes seemed to allow. Ezio, for example, features the sound of a harp at its most dreamy – hardly the kind of instrument you can imagine Kevin Saunderson fiddling with over in Detroit – which dissolves into an unsettling, feverish chord sequence at the 3m40s mark. The effect is like listening to house music with a strong dose of flu.
3. I:Cube – Disco Cubizm (Daft Punk remix)

Daft Punk’s influence towers over the French touch. The duo’s early records were instrumental in attracting attention to the scene, they pioneered the filter disco sound that the French touch would make its own, and they gave a leg up to countless young French producers by letting them remix their work (as seen on the Daft Club remix album). Individually, too, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, were vitally important to the French touch. Bangalter ran the peerless Roulé label, which released his own solo work as well as music by Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon, not to mention Stardust’s Music Sounds Better With You, while De Homem-Christo had his Crydamoure label, which made filter disco its own.

In 1996, though, Daft Punk were just a couple of young producers with a burgeoning reputation for their innovative house sound. So was Nicolas Chaix, AKA I:Cube, so it made sense for him to call them in to remix his second 12in single, Disco Cubizm. The original is a twitchy, unusual piece of jazzy house, very worthwhile in its own right. But the Daft Punk remix is something else, distilling the original elements into a tune that, while little changed, is 100 times fiercer and more direct than the I:Cube original, all nagging key runs and sweet filter release. It can still slay a dance floor today.
4. Cheek – Venus (Sunshine People) (DJ Gregory remix)
DJ Sven Hansen-Løve, one of the key DJs of the French touch era and co-writer of French Touch film Eden, recently called the DJ Gregory remix of Cheek’s Venus “the quintessential French touch track”. You can see why: Gregory’s remix, which bears little resemblance to the Cheek original, takes a few loops from Brass Construction’s Happy People and makes merry mayhem with them, filtering, tweaking and adding a thudding bass drum, resulting in a song that could put a smile on the face of an angry Doberman. It is one of those tracks, dumb as a bag of rocks yet joyous in its effect, that could double its five-minute running time without outstaying its welcome.

It also unites several of the key players in the French touch. The original song was produced by DJ Gilb’R, an important – if underrated – DJ and producer. It was released on his Versatile Records, one of the key labels of the French touch era, and it was also remixed by I:Cube and Pepe Bradock, the latter a producer whose beautifully odd take on house has earned him a rabid cult fan base. DJ Gregory, meanwhile, would go on to make his name with the Africanism project and tracks such as Block Party, which brought a distinctly tropical taste to French house.

5. 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.

6. 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. But if you recognise Heatwave today, it is most probably as the basis for DB Boulevard’s 2002 song Point of View, the Italian dance act having stuck a vocal on the top of their rerecording of Heatwave on their way to scoring a global hit.
7. Pete Heller – Big Love
The success of the French touch propelled the sound overseas, where producers tried their hand at replicating its Parisian swing with decidedly mixed results. Brighton house duo Phats and Small sucked any life out of the genre with their excruciating Stardust parody Turn Around, while Armand van Helden’s You Don’t Know Me was a brilliant exercise in adding soulful vocals to French disco frug.

Best of all was Big Love by the British producer Pete Heller, a nigh-on perfect slice of filter disco that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Roulé. Its brilliance was amazingly casual too: Big Love was apparently made in 12 hours while Heller’s usual production partner Terry Farley was off watching Chelsea and, in the best possible way, it sounds like it. There’s nothing laboured about Big Love. It sounds effortless, something it shares with many of the best French touch tunes. And while Heller may hail from Brighton, Big Love was a big hit in Paris. So it almost counts as French.

8. Jess and Crabbe – The Big Booya
Hip-hop and R&B were often cited as influences by French touch producers, and there was a certain amount of crossover between the two scenes. The Cassius duo of Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass first worked together on production for the French hip-hop artist MC Solaar, while St Germain’s Boulevard featured hip-hop beats on tracks such as Street Scene and Forget It. The Big Booya, the second single from French touch latecomers Jess and Crabbe, makes this crossover explicit. The song is propelled by a foulmouthed sample from the Notorious BIG, which meets a brilliantly rubbery bassline and surging disco strings.

The result may have little in common with the deep jazz of St Germain’s Sentimental Mood but it is an excellent example of the second, tougher wave of French touch productions that emerged at the end of the 90s, along with the likes of the Buffalo Bunch and Archigram, who notably sampled the Stooges’ I Wanna Be Your Dog on Doggystyle. The Big Booya is an incredibly simple track, the collision of three great ideas, but it has proved to have a surprisingly long shelf life. It was first released in 1999; Fatboy Slim’s Southern Fried Records rereleased it in 2003, complete with remixes from the man himself; and London label Hot Haus Records (home to DJ Haus) rereleased it again in 2013 with remixes from young producers Kodiak and Matrixxman.

9. Alan Braxe and Fred Falke – Intro
Perfection may be a myth but Intro, the debut single by Alan Braxe and Fred Falke, gets pretty close. It’s not just a brilliant, life-affirming earworm of a song, it is one that would be hard to improve on in any way. As with many of the tracks on this list, Intro is a minimal beast, using only drums, bass and a sample purloined from the Jets’ Crush on You. But could there be a better sample in house music than the Beach Boys-esque harmonies that introduce Crush on You and lend that vital element of melancholic euphoria to Intro? Could the bassline be any more perfectly elastic? And could the drums possibly sparkle with any more sly machine funk? It’s little surprise that there have been so few remixes of Intro: what on earth would you do to improve it? Braxe, incidentally, has considerable French touch history. His first 12in, the Vertigo EP, was released on Roulé records, and Braxe would later become one third of Stardust, alongside Bangalter and Benjamin Diamond.

10. Daft Punk – Human After All / Together / One More Time (reprise) / Music Sounds Better With You
Daft Punk arguably brought the French touch to an end with the release of Discovery in 2001, an album whose gleaming robo funk was so far ahead of the competition that filtering disco samples suddenly seemed very old hat. There would still be the odd French touch-esque hit, including Supermen Lovers’ Starlight, but the movement’s key artists would either change their sound (Alan Braxe and Fred Falke went none-more-80s electro-house, for example) or disappear (St Germain released no new music between 2001 and 2015). When French dance music rose again in the mid 2000s, thanks to Justice et al, the sound was noticeably harder.

And yet Daft Punk still had the time to release what may be the most French touch song of all time, on the bonus disc on their live album Alive 2007. The perpetual encore of the duo’s 2006-07 tour was a medley that included the title track of their third album, Human After All, and one of their best-known singles, One More Time, as well as key French touch tracks Together and Music Sounds Better With You. Together was the debut single and calling card of the short-lived yet brilliant duo of Bangalter and DJ Falcon, who took house minimalism to new, sparkling heights on their two 12ins for Roulé. Stardust’s Music Sounds Better With You, meanwhile, is one of the best known tracks in the history of dance music, an eternal classic destined to be played at the coolest clubs and the cheesiest weddings until death do us part. It is a song that takes all of the best elements of the French touch – the nagging disco samples, the sumptuous filters, the pounding bass drum and the sheer joy inherent in house music – and refines them into a true pop classic. Stitched together with three other quintessential examples of French dance music over 10 ecstatic minutes on Alive 2007, it is a worthy tribute to the French touch, a style of dance music that rehabilitated France’s musical reputation and continues to inspire producers such as Julio Bashmore and French Fries today.

Duke Dumont drops summer vibes with a scorching DJ mix from Ibiza

05a06_1738155

Ibiza’s summer season may be simmering down over the next month, but this past Monday at Café Mambo UK producer and chart-topping crossover Duke Dumont rocked the house with his Blasé Boys Club in tow. To celebrate the successful release of his most recent single Won’t Look Back, Dumont has now shared the live recording from his DJ set.

Listen to 44 minutes’ worth of ear-stroking house music below, with tracks from Wankelmut, Jonas Rathsman and Duke himself, who sprinkles in such infectious singles like the recent I Got U, as well as the track that gained him acclaim early on in his career, The Giver. Given the location, it’s only fitting that certified Ibiza smashes Walking with Elephants and Pushing On by Ten Walls and Oliver $ & Jimi Jules, respectively, were also included.

In addition to the shared set, Dumont also announced a competition in which fans can win a trip for two to Ibiza (flights and hotel covered) as well as VIP entry to the Blasé Boys Club closing party at Sankeys on September 22. For more information, head over to Dumont’s official website.

Dumont certainly won’t be looking back anytime soon: in the coming months, he’ll be finishing up the Blasé Boys Club residency at Sankeys before undertaking a slew of UK dates through October, including a sold-out show at Manchester’s Warehouse Project. From there, he’ll proceed to Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Australia (for the blockbuster Stereosonic tour) before returning to the UK upon the year’s end. Check out Duke Dumont’s Café Mambo Ibiza mix below.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri is making use of his early international retirement from the France national team by taking a break with his girlfriend Anara Atanes in Ibiza.

The 27-year-old decided to rule himself out of the possibility of being selected by Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps after he was controversially left out of France’s 2014 World Cup squad.

Nasri’s girlfriend publicly blasted Deschamps back in May for omitting Nasri from the squad by writing on Twitter: ‘F*** france and f*** Deschamps! What a s*** manager!

Short vacation: Nasri poses with girlfriend Atanes and Carla Dona Garcia (far right) during trip to Ibiza

‘Incase you didn’t read my tweet properly…. I’ll repeat myself….. f*** FRANCE!!!!! And f*** Deschamps!

‘Let’s just get this straight! I’m not mad I get my bf for two months…. I just think there’s a level of respect to be had!’

His omission from the France squad came following a season in which Nasri helped Manchester City win the Premier League and Capital One Cup.

Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping Nasri returns from his holiday fully refreshed ahead of Manchester City’s clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on September 13.

Ibiza losing summer music festivals crowd to Croatia

a99acfef7061d9b2429f038d9579d8f6

When it comes to summer music festivals, the Europeans have always done it a little better than the rest of the world.

Every year between June and September, a world-class festival takes place almost every weekend in countries ranging from Spain and France to Germany, Austria and Hungary – and particularly the UK.

Traditionally, rock and pop music have been the mainstays of most such events, but the rise of electronic dance music has in recent years made that sound the focus of most summer music festivals held across the continent. For much of the past two decades, Spain’s Balearic island of Ibiza has been the summer capital of electronic music events in Europe, but in the past five years it has been usurped by an unlikely contender: Croatia.

there is a sense of adventure and exploration here which is a huge part of the appeal. And the sunshine helps too
EDDIE O’CALLAGHAN, CO-FOUNDER OF THE GARDEN FESTIVAL

The country at the crossroads of central and southeast Europe and the Mediterranean may not be the first place that comes to mind when considering where to go during summer to drink a beer in the sun while listening to a DJ spin dance music. Although it’s been two decades since Croatia won its four-year war of independence against Yugoslavia in 1995, the bloody conflict still looms large in the popular consciousness. But since the war ended, Croatia’s image has slowly been overhauled by travellers who return home raving about its warm Mediterranean climate, its unspoilt 2,000-kilometre coastline and its picturesque towns.

And now, due to the efforts of a group of dedicated event promoters, the country has staked a claim as the summer music festival capital of Europe. More than 15 large-scale music events are taking place in the coming months, starting with the FOR Festival at Hvar from June 19-22 and concluding with the Unknown Festival in Rovinj from September 8-12. While most modern genres are covered – including indie rock and hip hop – it is in the area of electronic music that Croatia has become a force to be reckoned with.

The first such event to put Croatia on the radar was The Garden Festival, which attracted a modest 300 people when it made its debut in the Dalmatian coastal town of Petrčane in 2006. In 2012 there was a change of site to Tisno, a little further down the coast, situated between Zadar and Split. Apart from The Garden Festival (running this year from July 2-9), the new site also hosts four other festivals: Electric Elephant (July 10-14), Soundwave (July 17-21), Suncebeat (July 23-30) and Stop Making Sense (July 31-August 3).

Revellers chill out on a boat trip during The Garden Festival. Photo: Tim ErtlEddie O’Callaghan, a co-founder of The Garden Festival, admits that the natural beauty of Croatia was for many years overshadowed by the conflict. “But now recent generations have had the chance to rediscover its beauty, and are shocked to find such a glorious place so near to everywhere in Europe, and with such a warm and friendly reception,” he says.

“But having said this, many parts of the country still feel quite undiscovered, there is a sense of adventure and exploration here which is a huge part of the appeal. And the sunshine helps too.”

Asked whether the Croatian festivals have benefitted from the widespread perception that Ibiza – with its €20 drinks (HK$210) and club cover charges of up to €200 – has become over-commercialised, O’Callaghan says: “Maybe this has put off some real music lovers, who have now discovered in Croatia something fresher and far more affordable. Also at The Garden Festival, there is still the opportunity to enjoy the crystal clear sea and party in the open air until dawn, which reminds many people of how Ibiza was in the glory days of the late 1980s. This was never our aim, but the comparisons to the early days of Ibiza are flattering, even though Croatia has its own unique identity in terms of its music.”

This unique musical identity O’Callaghan is talking about is one of the main selling points of the Croatian festivals. While other European festivals, particularly those in Ibiza, cater for those with broader and more commercial tastes, the events in Croatia stand out by offering well-curated line-ups to fans of specific genres of electronic music.

The Garden FestivalThis is particularly true of the Dimensions (August 27-31) and Outlook (September 3-7) festivals, both being held in the picturesque 19th-century Fort Punta Christo in the coastal city of Pula. Dimensions, now in its third year, has quickly earned a reputation as one of the world’s top festivals for underground house and techno music, while Outlook, which was launched in 2008, has won fame worldwide among followers of bass music (including drum’n’bass, grime and dub).

Noah Ball, one of two managing directors for Dimensions and Outlook, says the philosophy behind these two festivals “is to respectfully represent the music from those genres and provide the audience with the best specifications in sound systems possible”.

Asked how Croatia has been able to achieve such success, Ball says: “I think it’s a combination of elements. The weather is almost always amazing, the scenery is stunning, and there are some really dedicated and innovative promoters putting together some brilliant festivals.

“Croatia has a unique charm. It is very laid-back, the coastal region is simply stunning, and there is a sense of it still being a little bit undiscovered. Some of the numerous islands are sparsely inhabited, so you can really escape from it all after a festival if you need to unwind – there are deserted beaches, historic towns and cities.”

With at least two new Croatian festivals announced this year, some are asking whether saturation point is close to being reached, but Ball is adamant that the growth so far appears to be sustainable.

The Garden Festival“I think everyone realises how far and fast the Croatian festival scene has grown, but we are all about development and growth, and essentially continuing to produce some great events with brilliant line-ups that people will want to come to from all over the world.

“In that sense, especially for Dimensions and Outlook, we now have truly global audiences and want to continue this, developing the festivals’ reach further. For Dimensions we have got a worldwide club tour happening in over 50 countries, so the word is spreading far and wide.”

The shift in the electronic music scene’s focus from Ibiza to Croatia was highlighted recently when it was announced that Mark Broadbent, former programmer at seminal Ibiza event We Love, had resurfaced in Croatia as chief promoter for The Garden Festival’s off-site, open-air venue, Barbarella’s.

“I left what for some would have been the dream job of programming one of the best parties in the world due to a lack of enthusiasm in the way things are heading in Ibiza,” he told the dance music blog Skrufff.com “A very different kind of clubber now comes here than 10 years ago, but Ibiza needs this kind of tourist to sustain the growth made during these past 10 years. The face of Ibiza has now changed … and there are now other places to visit if you want to recapture that hippie/free spirit we once loved here so much many moons ago.”

And by the sound of it, one of those places is now Croatia.

Une Après-Minuit – Paris, France 6th Feb 2014

1025523_10152540986014638_883297014_o

  • Une Après-Minuit c’est un pied de nez à la journée, c’est décrocher la lune à couvert des coups de soleil, mettre ses thunes dans des verres ou une bouteille et choisir de tomber des nues devant un canon plutôt que se faire rhabiller par un laideron. Ce n’est pas chercher quatorze heures à midi mais trouver du bonheur à minuit.Une Après-Minuit c’est l’après-midi des noctambules qui préfèrent les dancefloors brûlants à la garde des enfants, un boulot chiant ou une ballade avec belle-maman. A toute heure entre décibels et glamour, la nuit est plus belle que le jour, aux illuminés et rêveurs elle sourit toujours.

    Une Après-Minuit c’est une soirée free, sex and fun où chacun voit midi à sa porte et minuit à celles du Dandy !
