Various – French Disco Boogie Sounds Vol. 4 (1977-1991)
Music defined by a groove with a robotic beat that clearly hears hip-hop banging on the door, where layers of synthesizers, handclaps, horns and African percussion line up and follow the all-powerful lead of the swelling slap bass. Music that tells everyday stories, both humorous and lovelorn, and often packed with pheromones just waiting to be released on the dance floor or sofa. Shaped by synthetic textures, these productions are also spiced with Caribbean and Creole arrangements that reflect the West Indies’ critical contribution to French Boogie.
