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.
