About the record
This piece represent a nice panel of Eric Morand and Laurent Garnier’s work, before F com, you can hear house and harder sounds. Each time I am back on it I can’t help emotions to surface. I would not say I am fan of everything they produced, but I do have a lot of respect for this, simply because without them electronic music would have been really different in France. I’ve always been following and supporting their work, and was (still) a bit close to Katia D, which was managing the promotion department.
About Fnac Dance Division
Fnac Music Dance Division was a Fnac Music ‘s label substructure. At that time they opened office for electronic dance music records with Eric Morand to manage it, after his work for Barclay. Fnac Music Dance Division, 1st hexagonal reference in electronic music, at the beginning called Cherche Midi from the street name of their office. Fnac Music Dance Division is the starting point of what we call French Touch in dance music, a time before all the world will turn the head to the entire french touch wave with Daft Punk at the end of the 90’s. This label has been a springboard for Laurent Garnier, St Germain, Shazz, DJ Deep, Scan X and many others…
I’ve been lucky enough to play some great records, met part of the artistic team along the years, and even get collector goodies like this Bombers jacket (from a 500 limited edition, with only 3 colors : blue, green and red). By the way, this was the very first time that “french touch” expression was used in dance music, with this sentence : “We give a french touch to house”
