Club cheval (the second "c" is lower case) is the Paris-based supergroup of French producers Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba, and Panteros666. Their name translates roughly to "club horse," and their latest single, "From The Basement To the Roof," sets them squarely in a lineage of club musicians from that country known for their angular but emotionally impactful work. With an assist from Los Angeles vocalist Phlo Finister, it's a crisp house jam that could work after-hours at the club or after-after-hours back at the crib.
"The use of Phlo's voice gave the track the mellow and sentimental touch we were looking for," Club cheval told The FADER via email. The band seems to be keeping pretty mum on any details for now, but we do know that "From The Basement To The Roof" is the first single from their forthcoming debut album, and we can expect that to drop this year.
