L’Equipe du Son, “Le Rocker” (Moustache Machine Remix)
Moustache Machine take the smoother sounds of L’Equipe du Son out back, get them hopped up on cocaine and vocoders and show them what a 3AM dancefloor looks like. A little electro, a little French house, and out now.

Django Django, “Default” (Database Re-edit)
Database’s Ugly Edits Volume 2 features classic disco and soul tracks and newer artists like Django Django and…er…Metallica given a thorough drubbing by the French House producers. The entire album’s available as a free download if that sort of thing appeals to you.
Justin Faust, “La Fete”
Another freebie from someone we like, “La Fete” shows Justin Faust looking towards the filtered French house sound and deciding that he can do something new with it. Absolutely massive breakdown and explosion, and we love the little flecked pieces of the original instrumentation that push their way up.
Daft Punk, “Something About Us”(Cherokee Remix)
It’s over a year old, but we somehow missed it until now. We’d like to apologize for the omission and hope you continue to support us despite our obvious deficits.
Yazid le Voyageur, “Baby”
The insanely productive French touch producer Yazid Le Voyageur has put out nearly a dozen records in the last month and here’s the annoying thing: they’re all pretty good! This one, from over two weeks go, may seem like old hat to him, but we’re quite taken with it, especially the second half when it turns into an entirely different track using the same sounds.
AutoReverse, “Want Your Love”
Is there some law that says that only people in France get to use that filter? We’re cool if there is, but we just wanted to make sure. These two guys from Avignon just started last year but they seem to have their hats on straight.
Chilly Gonzales, “You Can Dance” (Le Nonsense Poolside Remix)
The track that will never die gets a French Touch reworking and you can finally mix it between your Daft Punk and Bob Sinclair tracks.
DJ Las K, “Darlène (Le Nonsense Remix)”
I thought you needed a little French house. You did, didn’t you?
