Ces 10 dernières années, PSCHENT a eu l'honneur de travailler avec des artistes hors du commun qui ont porté haut les couleurs de la French Touch. Il était temps de regarder en arrière et de faire une petite rétrospective des pépites électro pop qui ont marqué la décennie de cette grande famille.
The 10 Records that Made the French Touch
by Smaël Bouaici
Twenty years ago, the French Touch invaded the clubs and radio stations all over the world, putting France high on the map of electronic music. Qobuz tells you the story of 10 records which have left their mark on this golden era of French producers.
Pioneer of the French electro scene, most of the titles of F Com, the flagship label of Laurent Garnier and Eric Morand in the 90s, have been recorded in his studio in Chatou. Ludovic Navarre got himself noticed with his first LP Boulevard in 1995, before getting to the next level in 2000 with the release of his album Tourist with Blue Note. The prestigious label offered him unprecedented exposure, and his single Rose rouge is played everywhere that year, on the local and national radios. While on TV, journalists don’t hesitate to use it as the soundtrack of their reports. Based on the voice sample “I want you to get together”, which starts with Marlena Shaw’s Woman of the Ghetto, and on the cymbal play of Joe Morello, the drummer of the Dave Brubeck Quartet (on the classic Take Five), supported by a dancing kick, with intermingling brass instruments and flutes, Rose rouge is a jazz-house jam which opened the doors to the perceptions of an entire generation.
Modjo - Lady (Hear Me Tonight) (2000)
Such naivety! When they released Lady in 2000, their first track composed in ten days, Romain Tranchart and Yann Destagnol hoped to sell only 50 000 copies. But as soon as it was released, the single reached first place in the UK charts and reached the top 10 in thirty or so other countries, even overtaking Madonna’s Music, made by Mirwais. Lady (Hear Me Tonight) would sell more than 2 million copies in the end and the duo would find itself carried away in the music industry’s infernal machine. Seated between Pamela Anderson and Salma Hayek during the award ceremonies, Modjo spent their days promoting their music in the offices of Universal records. Despite them having no experience as producers, they had to deliver an album (also called Modjo) which would go on to win a Victoire de la Musique award. They barely had time to breathe before they would be forced to assemble a rock band for the concerts, during which the audience would discover that they have nothing to do with the DJs/producers from the French Touch… Once the tour was over, Romain Tranchart and Yann Destagnol made the smart decision of ending this madness that would have left its mark on the history of music to such an extent that on stage, Chic now plays Soup for One (from which comes the sample used in Modjo’s hit) in medley with Lady...
The Supermen Lovers - Starlight (2001)
Like the hip-hop from the 80s, the French Touch era was most of all a big sampling contest. The concept was to find the more obscure funky loop to avoid getting your idea stolen, and at this game, Guillaume Atlan, the man behind The Supermen Lovers, was rather lucky by turning into dance a record The Rock, composed by the short-lived band East Coast formed in 1978 by Charlie Wallert (the “singer’s producer”, which notably produced George Benson’s hit Love of My Life). Released at the start of 2001 as the first single from the album The Player, the track, featuring the singer Mani Hoffman, quickly became a dancefloor hit. Starlight succeeded brilliantly in France, in Norway and all the way to New Zealand, and has ensured the posterity of The Supermen Lovers, which isn’t a band, like Guillaume Atlan keeps repeating every time the press gets it wrong. Better think twice before choosing your stage name.
