Fire Flowerz - Offensive Language EP - 2011 (Cheaper Thrills)
Fire Flowerz have just released their second EP 'Offensive Language' with UK House label Cheaper Thrills. Fire Flowerz are an Italian duo that make everything from Fidget House to Dubstep to French inspired Disco House. Their sound is what i like to call 'Big Room Disco'. It's Disco House for sure, but it's very heavy and full of energy, much like Nightriders, J Paul Getto etc. Check out the EP below.
Florence-born London-based dance producer Daniele Pianigiani AKA Seya (formerly 5eya), is a new name to the scene. Friends with The Young Punx and Phonat, he is now setting his own path. Seya's 'Float EP' released last year on Sharooz 'La Bombe' label, is a funky modern disco-house hidden gem. Cut up samples, phat heavy drums and synths that pop out left, right and centre. This is a recipe for success. Here's the b-side 'Backlight'.
It's 2012, a new year and a new start. It's been a good few years for the 'French Touch' sound. Every year new producers are emerging and it has now got to a point where a scene is forming.
In '08 we had 'Mr Oizo - Lambs Anger', 'Voodoo Chilli - Titans EP', and of course 'Louis La Roche - The Peach EP'. In '09 we saw the return of Armand Van Helden with new best buddy A-Trak to form the mighty Duck Sauce. Their debut track 'aNYway' hitting the mainstream charts and radio. From then on, 2010 and 2011 exploded with new music from Phonat, Nightriders, His Majesty Andre, Madeon, Fred Falke, J Paul Getto, Vanguard plus many more...
French Touch Version 3.0. We bought it back. This time it's more electro inspired, a strong disco feel, the old House sound updated for the 21st Century. So, What will 2012 bring?
So to kick-start this blog again. Here's a brand new remix from Shook. It's funky as fuck.
Yes, i know what your thinking. 'Where the hell have you been?!?'
Well things have been very busy for me as i'm writing my album, so this website had to be put on hold for a while until things got quieter for me. Thanks to everyone who bought 'Super Soaker' in January!
The good news is, i'm back and i have the first lbbfh album post!
This could well be the rarest release i've posted on here. As far as i know, its basicly impossible to get hold of! Blackjack was one of many labels created and owned by Fab G. Released in 1999 this was the first various artists album to be sold by the label. It's a great collection of some of the finest names in the french touch scene at the time. Superfunk, Fafa Monteco and Sebastien Leger all made it onto the record aswell as some amazing rare and previously unheard tracks!
1 - Prelude To Blackjack 2 - Superfunk - La Guerre Du Funk 3 - Kiko - Last Days Of Disco 4 - Discokidz - Starlite 5 - Deaf 'N Dumb Crew - Chicayork 6 - Twin Pitch - Let's Get Together 7 - Da Bitchy Boys - Le Zeeep (Remix Seb. Leger) 8 - Fafa Monteco - To The Rhythm 9 - Cricco Castelli - From Russia With Phunk 10 - Sebastien Leger - Saturation 11 - DJ Nekbath - No One
Gant Garrard - 100% Chicago Style - 2001 - Riviera
Ahh yes, Riviera great label! Home to Stacy Kidd, Sebastien Leger and Paul Johnson, own by the legendry Fab G (Blackjack, Grand Prix). Gant Garrard might not be a name you've heard of but with tracks on Blackjack, Dust Traxx and of course Riviera, why not?
Arguabley more Chicago House than French House, this release is funky as fuck! Looped but interesting is the best way to describe this. It's all about the groove and feeling of the song with clevely placed filters and kicks that come in and out of the mix.
I'll post another vinyl release of his perhaps in the new year.
You can now listen to a new mix i did for Prim Sessions.
The show is two hours long and my set starts in the second hour.
