Lab Overview

"In the beginning, Motorbass was a duo formed by Philippe Zdar & Etienne de Crécy. After attending a rave called Trance Body Express near Paris, they decided to work together, influenced by the sound of Detroit. The result is released in 1996 under the name of Pansoul. 25 years later, this album is still considered as a landmark of the French Touch movement, a gem which captured a part of rave culture, from a different time, in a different world." - Ed Banger Records

"I have a very clear memory of where and when I was blown away by this album. I felt in love immediately, 'and if you see him tell him I miss him' almost made me cry. It does today… That unique sound suddenly absorbed me, it was mental and banging at the same time. It was jazz for the ravers, techno made by hip hop heads! Then I played 'Flying Fingers' that’s where my brain twisted. I knew that beat, I had that orange 12" I bought a couple of years ago with weird credits on it, Zdar & EDC that’s them!!!! Motorbass are those 2 French guys!!! 25 years later I am cherishing this record like a treasure in my collection. The last conversation I had with Philippe in a train coming back from our annual Basel party. He asked me to make sure Pansoul will have a second life, this album need to be shared with the young generation of house music lovers. Thanks to Etienne de Crécy and his team, this is happening again." - Pedro Winter
