Rhumba House

Posted in Crydajam, Daft Punk, Le Knight Club on 27 maj 2010 by surikaten

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.

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.

Posted in Le Knight Club, Leonardus, Quinten 909 on 18 april 2010 by surikaten

The Dutch disco house scene is blessing us with some briliant up-coming artists at the moment. Rubix is one, Quinten 909 another, there’s Pitto (which is actually more techno) and there’s Leonardus. The last one is the main focus of this post. Togheter with colleague Quinten 909 he released the absolutely lovely EP Heartbreaker where the track Eye to Eye has been played uncountable by us.

Now Leonardus is back with some new stuff and as you can expect he brings us some extra ordinary danceable disco house. This guy should with out doubt be the next big thing if you have the slightest taste for happy funky house.

Leonardus – Can You

And since we haven’t blogged Eye to Eye before, we do it now. It’s just a fantastic track.

Leonardus & Quinten 909 – Eye to Eye

And as a bonus, a great remix on Le Knigt Club from Quinten 909.
