However, I do have something to declare. We all know French House is funky shit, and it makes for great walking music. This leads me to believe, that I wish to carve out a section of French House known as Fashion House.
Now, at first, I assumed this had already been thought of, but a Google search yielded no results. While it is known that many of our favorite french artists create mixes, I don't it is decisive enough to declare a subgenre.
What the hell am I talking about? I honestly do not know, but a few songs in my collection immediately make me think of fashion. And while many of these songs can be found blasting in Abercrombie and Fitch's around the globe, I don't think they receive enough recognition as "Fashion House."
Below I have listed 5 tracks which I believe constitute as "Fashion House." Why? Perhaps it's the tempo (each are around 126 BPM, which is a little faster than a majority of French House tracks). Maybe it's the slide synth riffs, or the 5th chords. If I tried to guess, I'd be talking out of my ass, which is something I do not want to do.
So here they are, what do you folks think? Do they differ enough to be grouped into a subgenre known as "Fashion House"?
