LA Collection: Chapter 1 [coll] – [Arcade]

LaCollection

 

This 1994 release contains French underground dance club music from artists such as Shazz, St. Germain, Laurent Garnier and others, sometimes as acronyms or collaborations between various French producers from the nineties underground dance movement. This is not the Daft Punk compressed disco punk sound, rather clever takes on Acid and Tech House, Detroit Techno and (unfortunately) also on Progressive House and Trance styles. Where this collection shines are the more experimental and forward pushing tracks from Scan X, Orange, Choice. And Laurent Garnier’s Planet Sex is just one of those over-the-top songs begging to be played. Breathless is is another fun take on acid-meets-techno. This compilation is a prime example showcasing what 1990:ies music is interesting still today and what has been mangled to bits due to cliche patterns.
