If you do not already know who Club cheval is, you need to.

Club cheval, based in Paris, consists of four major players in the electro industry: Sam Tiba, Canblaster, Myd, & Panteros666. Influenced by Timbaland, they joined forces to create a new type of sound.

Their music is hard electro house laced with R&B and hip-hop. AKA all things I love.

A snippet which I think nails their music style was in this Billboard interview – especially the part I underlined. Dead on:

[Billboard]: Do you remember the first Timbaland thing you heard?

Sam [Tiba; Club cheval]: I think we all got really shocked when heard the first Missy Elliott things. And I think the one when I told myself ‘that’s crazy,’ the Justin Timberlake track “My Love.”

[Billboard]: Some of those beats [by Timbaland] still sound wild today.

Sam [Tiba; Cc]: True. And that’s the goal for us. We want to be able to be listened to in 10 years. It’s a good challenge to make music that people can’t tell when it was made.


“From The Basement To The Roof”, a single from their Discipline LP, is no exception. The original is seductive with vocals from Phlo Finister and reminds me of some r&b songs I still love back in the early 2000s – think 2000-2004. Great single.

…Now, enter the Remix, by Oliver.

Nothing short of phenomenal… It is hard, yet soft. It is intense, yet smooth. Mechanical yet melodic. Aggressive as hell, yet oh so inviting & smooth as silk…. Get ready because you are in for a major aural adventure.

I personally love the half second robotic-voice placed strategically. The intro starts slow and builds up all while keeping the drums pulsing. At the 2:06 mark, it all drops and you are dealing with a major house banger… but then that rager turns into a sexy afterhours party at {my favourite part} the 3:24 mark where Phlo hums and it sweeps into the dreamy synth, as it gears up to transition into the outro.

If I had to describe this track in one word: hypnotic…. and just like that, the song fades away into a magical lullaby and you are left awestruck.


This remix is one of the best songs out there.

Take a listen yourself & get lost in it…
