Kid Loco Presents French Funk Experience CD
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Following Quantic's "Tropical Funk Experience" and DJ Andy Smith's "New Orleans Funk Experience" we are proud to unveil Kid Loco's French Funk Experience
The celebrated French DJ, producer & remixer has unearthed 22 Gallic gems from the "Library Music & Strange Grooves" section of his personal record collection.
Featuring mostly 60's and 70's grooves of what the Kid describes as "killer-horns-funky-bass-driven-drums-grooves" the French Funk Experience offers up trippy soundtrack funk, groovy ye-ye, funk-chanson & beyond from celebrated French labels such as Telemusic & Music De Wolfe.
Kid Loco rose to fame in the mid 90s and alongside his countrymen Air, Daft Punk & Etienne De Crecy was a key figure in the 90s French electronic music scene. His 'A Grand Love Story' album with its trip-hoppy-easy-listening vibe sits alongside Air's `Moon Safari' as one of the definitive French albums of the 90s. This is his first compilation since his lauded `Late Night Tales' released by Azuli in 2003.

Top Customer Reviews
During the 1970's France was mainly dominated by Euro-Disco from artists like Cerrone, Vangarde, Ottawan, Amanda Lear and Sheila B Devotion, the tracks on this compilation were recorded to add a funky feel for film and TV known as Production Music (Library Music), most were from the Tele Music label and some from De Wolfe Music.
Most tracks on this compilation are Experimental Jazz Funk Fusion with some Electronica, Hammond driven keyboards and a bit of Rock, the downside to this all the tracks are instrumental with no lyrics so it can be a bit tedious hence my four stars, the in depth sleeve notes by Kid Loco are very good and interesting, if you like to jam to Funky style music that was produced for film and TV during the 70's then I highly recommend you purchase this.
I can't recommend this highly enough - some real classy grooves here.
