Revisit Boys Noize‘s stellar mix from 2016 celebrating the work of two French house labels, Roulé and Crydamore. The two labels were owned by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo who would go on to form the legendary group Daft Punk. In their own right, the labels were driving forces in the late 90s French dance scene and would help set the stage for the immense success Daft Punk has gone on to enjoy.
The mix features an hour of tracks by Bangalter and Homem-Christo themselves, as well as label members Stardust, DJ Falcon, the Buffalo Bunch and more. Boys Noize’s factual tidbits scattered throughout the mix add some fascinating dance music history to the jubilant mix as well. “It was a little before Daft Punk released their first album, Homework,” Boys Noize says in the mix, “so it’s interesting to see how both of them already had great ideas, used the label as a playground but kept the best ideas for the Daft Punk project.” Listen below.
