    Early pre '97 French House?

    Remove this ad: become a supporter

    I'm looking for French House or House music with french touch elements released before 1997!


    Stacy Kidd - Give It To Me (Dance Mania) 1995
    is considered by many to be the first real "French House" track ever, at least to what has later become French Touch.




    Paperclip People (Carl Craig) – Throw 1994

    The filter sequence, starting at 8:20 famously inspired Daft Punk, the invention of Filter House.




    Cheek - Venus (Dj Gregory Remix) 1996




    Is someone else here into the early days of French House stuff?

    German DJ & producer DJ Tonka had huge influence on Daft Punk. While not French House per se (his music is Funky House) it's rare to see someone so ahead of his time, his stuff deserves more attention, he did a bunch of amazing funky remixes too.

    Some early Tonka tracks (all pre '97):

    Underground Solution - Luv Dancin'


    Similar to "Throw" up above, this song showed a side of house music steeped in the past of disco - the "chorus" was one of the first to use a sample from an old disco record. Not to mention it's a killer track regardless of its significance.

    Paul Johnson – Hear The Music (1996) contains samples from 'I Hear Music In The Streets' by Unlimited Touch.

    The first track on Daft Punk's Essential Mix (BBC Radio 1):

    Red-X - Dee's Knots

    Another one from DP's Essential mix; the entire "When Worlds Collide" EP is a great example of the crossover from Classic to French house. This particular track samples the bassline from "Forget Me Nots" by Patrice Rushen and Lady Kier's breathy pseudo-French vocals from "What Is Love?" by Deee-Lite (a track which may also, incidentally, be responsible for the existence of Ed Banger Records... but that's another story). It all comes together for an incredibly airy track that set the standard for French house's light-hearted bounciness (as compared to Classic house's earthier groove).
