Forgotten French House Hits

Have you ever heard of a group called "Galleon"? Maybe, maybe not. But the basic truth is that they're arguably even better than Modjo and Stardust... just a wee bit too late. 2001/2002? The era of French house megahits was practically over by then.

Their sampling is quite good, in my opinion. I've always been partial to a good chop-style sample done well. Not only is it good chopping, it also has a heavy 80's pop feel, while still retaining that disco style.

They released one LP, self titled, of which I have yet to find a download of. If worse comes to worst, I'll buy one on eBay. But if you happen to own this album, and wouldn't mind sharing, I'd be very grateful.

Now to some tracks.

Better than Modjo and Stardust ? Then perhaps theyre better than Cassius and Daft Punk ? Modjo > Galleon . Just cause their song are too similar.

There's no similarities at all. Listen to the sampling. Totally different. And Cassisu and Daft Punk are totally different things altogether. That's like comparing The Beatles to Styx.

Loreta said...

Well their sampling is not the same as Stardust's , but youve compared them. And how can you even say that Galleon > Stardust?

Boba Fettuccini said...

More creative vocals, more creative sampling, better filtering, more progression? Should be pretty obvious.

I'm of the opinion that some people only like MSBWY because of the Daft Punk association. It's a good track, but it's extremely overrated.
