We’re bringing back some old French House this week on the blog (well all of it from 2002 actually). In between releasing world famous tracks with Daft Punk, both Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo made some extremely fine French House. Bangalter with Dj Falcon and de Homem-Christo with Éric Chedeville. Togheter the last couple formed Le Knigt Club which released their first records in 1997 (the same year Daft Punk released their debut album Homework). While Bangalter and Dj Falcon had a hit with So Much Love To Give (which we blogged some days ago) Le Knight Club released Rhumba and Soul Bells, a couple of tracks that without doubt have influenced a lot of the French House scene today.
Togheter with a few others at the Crydamoure label the talented duo also had a ”jam group”, called Crydajam, which that very same glorius year (2002) released an 12″ EP. If You Give Me The Love You Want was one of the disco inspired tracks on that one.

Crydajam – If You Give Me The Love I Want
Le Knight Club and Crydajam stood for a part of the last French House revival. Tomorrow we bring you the master of the ongoing revival of French House. And we’re actually bringing him! Stay tuned.
