    You count Kavinsky, Justice, Brodinski, SebasiAn, Breakbot and Gesaffelstein as 'sell outs' ?

    Yes. Those dudes ain't making "French House" anymore.

    It's very difficult to find true "French House" . Not house that is from French producers, but "French House" like this:

    First saw Daft Punk live at Tribal Gathering 1996, in the very early stages of their career (as Daft Punk), before Homework came out - which I still think is their best album. The Essential Mixes they did around then are also superb along with the couple of Essential Selection mixes, really good sets. I'm definitely interested to see what they come up with, but I'm not expecting great things tbh - I hope to be wrong of course.

    Ref French House producers, tend to agree, just look what Guetta/Bob Sinclar went on to do, awful euro/EDM stuff, not my cup of tea at all! However the stuff released in the mid-late 90s on Roule, Crydamoure, Kitsune, Yellow, Vulture, Superdiscount etc etc, was great, although as with all new popular genres, it became saturated with a load of rubbish.

    ^This is definitely a possibility. With how much they avoid publicity and such I can definitely see them releasing new music under a different brand.

    I think no matter what the duo are still probably working on some crazy stuff, but I doubt it is going sound very similar to their old stuff. Which is good IMO because if it did what would be the point? It was the creativity and composition which made their music awesome and if they just run off the same vein it won't have the same value. Plus, my impression of their personalities is that they don't really care and just want to push the envelope.

    As for all the "french house sold out" BS, there's a reason music changes. Nostalgia is great and all but don't you ever want to listen to something new? Most producers do and that's why they produce. Whether they sell out or not, you'd get sick of making the same pulsing bassline after a year or two too. I liked Feed Me's throwback to that style on his last EP, but he still pushed it in a different direction. I wouldn't say he "sold out"; he just made a track he thought sounded good. If all you want is an old school french house vibe, I'm sure there are thousands of novice producers trying to sound just like Daft Punk, but the talented producers have moved on because they wanted to do something else.

    I have seen rumors on rumors about Daft Punk's return and I hope this one has merit. I'll restrain my pessimism because it doesn't have much point, but I doubt its going to go down like a normal album/tour announcement.
