My favorite songs: “Music Sounds Better With You”

had to get to this at some point. This song is why I love filter house/French Touch so much: it’s disco-y goodness, it’s a chunk of a Chaka Khan record sampled and looped into infinity, it’s dance music that never fails to make me dance, it’s so smart because it’s so simple (but not basic or easy or dumb), and, in 1998, it was the past informing the sound of the future in the most literal way. Also, I’m not sure that Alan Braxe has ever been involved with a bad record.
