5 French House Artists to Discover

French house — also known as “French touch”, “filter house”, “tekfunk” — has been a popular strand of house music, having first emerged on the European dance music scene in the late 1990s and 2000s. Characterised by the use of filters and modulations on and alongside funk and disco samples, music of this genre usually features heavy basslines that underline soulful vocoded vocals.

Here, we’ve put together a few French house artists to get you started on this celebrated genre.
