FRENCH ELECTRIC UNDERGROUND COMPILATION
So: YES! – the French underground is alive and thriving. YES! – its rich and colorful! And NO! – It doesnt care much for surfing the trend wave or satisfying the average taste bud.
French Electronic Underground, which can also be read as FEU – meaning Fire, is a 13 song compilation showcasing the rich Electronica scene thats been steadily brewing behind the tired four-to-the-floor French wall-of-sound export.
The record was conceived to showcase the most unique and thoroughly Gallic modern sound hybrids and sure shot fire starters. Stylistically, the LP falls somewhere between Experimental Pop, Rock infused Electro, 80s Geek-o tronica, Singer Song-Glitch-Writer material and Avante-Tech. Each song on the compilation was not only cherry picked for writing, production quality and originality, but also for a strong sense of personality and a distinct artistic signature.
FEU is a compact collection of sonic hyperlinks leading to a network of clubs, galleries, studios, and basements scattered all over Paris and throughout France, where the sonic experiment continues.
