French Express vol. 1

Our colleagues over at French Express are running a great blog. The guys over there likes their French-style house as much as you and me, and theirs is one of the blogs I routinely turn to when I need a French touch fix. And it has been since long before we started our own blog.

Now French Express have set up their own label. Except for all the hard work, the step to set up your own label isn't that far-fetched if you run a music blog. You get all this music sent to you from unsigned acts and you already have cut out a musical niche through the blog. So expect more great blogs turning into great labels in the future.

The first release of the new label is aptly named French Express Vol. 1, and is a seven track compilation. It's a great compilation, and what surprised me was the diversity of the tracks, with the French touch and nu italo stuff mixed with more of indie dance tracks. And after the first swift through it was one of those latter tracks that I fell for; Uniforms' second track that made me think of Holy Ghost! or Jamaica. The Swedish duo are true renaissance men, evidenced by their website which is packed with clothing, music, art and film.
