the phantom's revenge.


tony is just a regular french guy. he likes to post surveys on his myspace (remember those? what's your favorite ice cream?) he hates spiders and gets along with his parents. he's friends with louis la roche (pictured above). you know, a normal french kid. but he also makes some really good french touch.

first off, the phantom's revenge takes a stab at reworking a track for division kent. he kept the breathy, glass candy-esque vocals and chop chop chopped away at the beat. no, it's not your cd skipping.

division kent - offshore (the phantom's revenge remix)

like i said, it's not your cd skipping, keep listening.

the phantom's revenge - absolute ego riot

louis la roche is one worth keeping your eye on too. if you missed his ep 'the peach' then go back and get it! and if you like what you hear then keep your ears peeled and your rss readers tuned here because he has a new album coming out called 'i delete myself', the first new single, 'be brave' is already on his myspace player.

The only reason everyone is hating on Louis is because he's young and he started off with a bang... it didn't take him years of practice before he finally made a decent song. He was in the game the second he set foot in the door. Also, he really does capture the French sound better than most French djs.

Awsome, the youngters sure know how to make good beats. The louis rmx is great. If you are this good at 17 imagine at 27. :)

I've tried to dislike that Absolute Ego Riot track. I've really tried. But there's no getting around the fact that it's fucking completely bananas.

The reason everyone is hating on luis la roche is because he pretended to be thomas bangalter and thought that his music was good enough that he could get away with it.

He also just copied the style EXACTLY which is now 10yrs old and without a change,something which the real thomas bangalter wouldn't do. There's nostalgia and then there is lack of originality. I suppose this is a little similar for the same reasons except i gotta say the sample/s are cooler. But i really think its the thomas bangalter thing that really annoyed me about Louis LaRouch(also a fake french name) along with the strait out jack house hats were kinda lame.

whats with anonymous haters
la roche=hottest new french touch artist

NOT FRENCH TOUCH said...

taking a chorus of a disco song
and adding a kick and snare

IS VERY FAR from french touch

this music is good, dont get me wrong
but is NOTHING CLOSE to french touch

missing tons of elements. And if you cant see that, I suggest you go study more french touch before making such a claim.

Other then that, the music is good, but the formula they use gets pretty repetitive in an annoying way.
Chorus/Kick Snare/Shorten Chorus/Kick Snare/Glitch Chorus/Kick Snare

aleks said...

not french touch: well, it's up to you to choose the right time and order to play these songs out.

i can't do that for you, sorry.

and about all the genre-definition bullshit: it's annoying. as. hell.

did louis la roche copy his name from jacques lu cont

I appreciated Louis form his first song. And Phantom's Revenge too. Their way to make French Touch is new for me! Infact for me it's New French Touch. And it's really cool this music! Anyway it's not the fault of Louis if someone posted his song under the name of T Bang.
