wikiped Wrote:French house is a style of house music originally produced by French artists, a popular strand of the late 1990s and 2000s European dance music scene and a form of Euro disco. The genre has also been referred to as "French touch", "filter house" and "tekfunk" over the years. The defining characteristics of the sound are heavy reliance on filter and phaser effects both on and alongside samples from late 1970s and early 1980s American or European disco tracks (or original hooks strongly inspired by such samples), causing thicker harmonic foundations than the genre's descendants. Most tracks in this vein feature steady 4/4 beats with a tempo range of 110–130 beats per minute.
Celebrated and successful purveyors of this music include Daft Punk, Cassius, The Supermen Lovers, Modjo, Etienne de Crécy and Justice.
I got into this recently after I listened to some DJ Falcon and early Thomas Bangalter stuff.
400 btw until the old count returns
