The self-proclaimed house-with-guitars unit referred to as > formed in 1995 throughout the French duo of Jean-Philippe Freu and Patrice “Patou” Carrié, in the ashes of two indie rings. Documenting for the Spanish label Elefant, the set released an eponymous debut immediately after arriving together (documented with help from programmer Johnny Palumbo), after that constructed a seven-piece music group to tour the united states. Quickly, the French main label PIAS authorized the duo and released the EP Le Mobilier in 1998. A support gig for Underworld in Paris cemented the group’s rather tenuous qualifications within the dance globe, and > released their recording debut, Set up Sonore, on V2 in middle-1999. Music Kills Me adopted in 2002, but its insufficient success triggered the group to reduce global distribution. Schizophonia adopted in a restricted launch during 2005, however the music group soon finished the dried out spell when Apple made a decision to utilize the album’s music “Cubicle” for an ipod device advertising campaign. V2 re-engaged them on an internationally basis, and released an eponymous collection — spanning 1997 through 2005 — to greatly help newcomers capture up. After advertising their greatest-hits recording with a global tour, the duo got a brief break before regrouping and liberating Futurino in ’09 2009.
