Vive la France! If you've ever wondered what stepping into a French discotheque during the 80's was like, Disco Sympathie has the answer. Renowned Parisian digger/DJ Vidal Benjamin has collected the most obscure, funky, and straight-up French-y disco cuts together for this compilation to share a glimpse of the one-of-a-kind scene that existed in 80's France. At the time, French disco producers were tackling the sounds of American disco & boogie, as well as British & German new wave and synth pop, and combining all the sounds to create something uniquely their own. Discover this sound over 12 tracks of especially fun French disco from the likes of Raymonde Et Les Moutards, Club Prive, Stephane, Patrice Mondon, Ark, Cristophe Laurent, and more. Also includes exclusive edits of a couple track by esteemed French editeurs Pilooski, Gilb'R, and Reverend P.
