tms: What is with French Producer how do they constantly master the music arena the likes of Ed Bangar crew and of cause the robot “Daft Punk”. Is there a special private school for the musically gifted or perhaps its something more deeper they get music and how to translate that to an experience that people want to be part of whatever it is. They know how to craft there experience into music that you place on repeat time and time again.
