Various Artists Cerrone by Bob Sinclar
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Recall-Malligator
Though the space-tastic "Supernature" and endless groover "Love In C Minor" might rival Giorgio Moroder's best work, Jean-Marc Cerrone hasn't been quite as lionized by second-generation disco listeners. Fellow Frenchman Bob Sinclar's mix CD does its best to give Cerrone his due, updating his late-'70s and early-'80s sounds for modern dancefloors with rewarding results. It's immediately clear how much influence early '80s Cerrone productions like Don Ray's "Standing in the Rain" and B-boy favorite "Rocket in the Pocket" had on Daft Punk, for instance. If nothing else, Cerrone is a top-notch primer on the evolution of French dance music.
