Daft Punk's record breaking return emphasised the journey that French dance music has under-taken.
A sound born in sweaty Parisian clubs has - with the aid of a superstar or two - becoming a globe conquering phenomenon, and there's no sign that the well of talent is set to dry up.
Showcased on Kitsune's Parisien compilations, Pyramid is a rising production talent whose deft mixture of electro, house and disco is already making waves.
With only a handful of releases under his own name, Pyramid has already stamped an indelible identity. Cult single 'Cosma' blazed a trail across summer, while the producer's new EP 'The Phoenix' is set to raise hopes still further.
A five track affair, 'The Phoenix' matches three original productions with two specially curated remixes.
Out on January 27th, Clash has gained a special preview. 'Astral' contains all the weight of Justice yet has a wry, cheeky grin. Those soft disco influences, and the Chicago house piano chords which close the track, push Pyramid into a new direction.
Joyous disco-house with a retro-Futurist spin, you can listen to 'Astral' first on Clash.
