The French have always had a knack for electronic music (covered previously on Revolver, twice) – yes, we know you’re thinking Daft Punk and Justice. We compiled a list of 15 electronic songs by slightly more obscure, French-speaking beatmakers. Spotify labels this genre French-indie-tronica (really…) but we don’t like labels so let’s just say these tunes combine youthful, vapory lyrics with a solar French touch. It’s all very groovy.
