Ever since back in the 50s, France has been a fertile ground for genuinely out there (and oftentimes well dressed) music. Disco, house, french-touch, psyche, library music, folk, avant-garde, pop, new-wave, techno... the list goes on. Since lists don't do your ears much good, here is Creme Brulee, inviting you to revisit the classics or dive headfirst into the french electronic underground. Straight into the music that came forward from the margins and ended up moving the rebels and the bourgeoisie alike. Produced by D.I.R.T.Y.'s Guillaume Sorge with Patrick Thevenin and Clovis Goux, this month Creme Brulee explores the french new wave scene, a handful of "chic et moderne" bands who were the first french musicians getting attention from the international music newspapers in the early eighties. Long time before Daft Punk, bands like Taxi Girl were reviewed in the NME... The french new wave scene was a kind of pre-french touch.
