Recommended Posts


 

To celebrate the release of Daft Punk's fourth studio album proper, "Random Access Memories", Future Image has put together a mix stepping through decades of French electronic music. From Schaeffer's musique concrete to SebastiAn's aggressive cut-up dancefloor fillers; from Jarre's proto-techno to Kangding Ray's bone-rattling bass music; from Laurent Garnier's jazz-infused jams to the dance-rock of Phoenix and Air - this mix has it all covered. Presented in a rough chronological order, The French Connection ensures that each milestone in French dance music is touched upon. And if you really can't wait for it, skip to 74-ish minutes through.

pretty cool idea for a mix. Would be cool to see some other French artists appear on a future one. Maybe Pierre Bastien, Magma, Jackson and his computer band, Serge Blenner, Edgard Varese, Vitalic, Oliver Messiaen

Yeah, there's an absolute ton I've missed out. Jackson's in there though! Utopia and the Moog Acid remix :)

oh missed that one. Although I'm not a fan of daft punk at all I'll definitely be listening, i already like the way you've beat matched musique concrete with Jarre, pretty nice.
