The two Raw Man EPs on "We Rock" are two of my favorite French house records of all time, this one beautifully ripped as 320k MP3s by our friend Sam. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Like most music fans of my generation, I came to know of Romanthony through his collaboration with Daft Punk on their 2001 LP Discovery, lending his voice and lyrics on "One More Time" and "Too Long". Yet despite the newfound Fame and Pop acceptance, Romanthony has been largely unheard from since '01, aside from a couple of 12" releases. However, prior to Discovery, Anthony Wayne Moore released a couple dozen EPs, mainly on the Black Male Records label that he helmed. Ranging in genre from Tech and Garage to Gospel and Pop, Romanthony's music is deeply personal, recorded in a Lo-Fi basement style that serves as a counterpoint to many of the other artists with which he is associated.
I should say that my hope in posting these recordings, besides just to share and celebrate, is that perhaps some of you know where he's been hiding. Despite having grown up only minutes from his home at the Jersey Shore, I've still never heard of any performances or DJ sets from him in a loooooong time, but I'm hoping that some of you readers with "inside" information might help spread a little information. He's just too good to be hibernating, and if there's a venue to be hearing his new work, I'd love to know it. I'm working on collecting as many of his older recordings as possible, and i've come across a few great ones of late. I'll be posting them up over the next few days. If you have any others that you'd like to "contribute", please drop me a line.

Once again, thanks to Frederick for this EP
Sunday, December 23, 2007
I received a few tracks this week from Frederick, which has gotten my juices flowing on a couple of fronts. The first that i'll go into today is Vertigo Records, a French label that I've been trying to collect for a while. There are only 8 EPs on this somewhat mysterious imprint, dating from 1999-2002, many of which contain tracks from "alter egos" of some of the princes of French House, including Romain Tranchart (Modjo), and Ali and Farid of the Eternals. The records here are classic looped-disco, a la Crydamoure, but with a much more "edity" feel, and with more vocal samples. All in all, real fist-pumping stuff that'll keep you wiggling for a long time. Hope you enjoy!

I got a note the other day from Asher of Milwaukee's Electro/Etc. group "The Glamour" (as well as as solo artist as "Diamonds". He passed along a link to a guest post he did on Panda Toes recently, presenting the French House label, Grand Prix. From this little taste, I'm left breathless, and the search begins for the rest of the label's output. Grand Prix 003 coming up tomorrow, thanks Asher!

Much love to Bruno and Johnny, who simultaneously sent these to me, its so much fun having a blog!

Bruno, the patron saint of French house has sent in some classics, which you'll get to hear over the next couple days, starting with this classic cut. Rumored to be a Thomas Bangalter alias, it seems more likely that Roy Rogers is just a great knockoff.
