Roulé (translating to "rolled") is a French record label that was founded in 1995 by Thomas Bangalter, one half of Daft Punk and managed by Gildas Loaec. There exists a sister label called Scratché, which has had only one release to date by the Buffalo Bunch (Paul de Homem-Christo and Romain Séo) who now release on the Crydamoure and We Rock Music labels.

The use of the name Roulé stems from the Daft Punk track "Rollin' & Scratchin'". Musicians on the Roulé label included Romanthony, Stardust, Roy Davis, Jr., DJ Falcon, Alan Braxe, Together, and Thomas Bangalter's own material.

The story of Roulé has to be one of the most unique tales in the history of dance music, no so much because there is an incendiary story behind it (in fact, it was very sensibly run by long-time Daft Punk associate Gildas Loaëc.) or because it shook the world to its foundations (it didnít Ė although a world without Music Sounds Better With You would have been a sadder place).

Instead, Roulé was remarkable for the incredible run of quality it spewed forth, with almost every single record it released a buy-on-sight and wear-out-the-grooves affair. Indeed, for eight short years Roulé pretty much ran things in house music, releasing a stream of 12 inches from Bangalter, his Paris friends and associates and various US house legends that were, variously, funked up, furious, deranged, soulful and nasty but always essential.

Roulé's fifth release Stardust's "Music Sounds Better with You" single reached number one in the dance charts in most European countries. Stardust members were Benjamin Diamond on vocals, Alan Braxe for music and Thomas Bangalter with production. It contains a sample of the Chaka Khan song "Fate".

And then, after just 13 brilliant releases (14 if you count one-off sub label Scratché) Roulé was gone, never to be heard of again. There have been rumours, of course Ė people claimed that Duck Sauceís Anyway would come out on Roulé Ė but even with Daft Punk back on the scene the return of Roulé seems about as likely as St Germain going hardcore.


Maybe thatís just the way it should be, though: after all, Roulé was apparently never even intended as a label. The possible reason for this would be that Bangalter uses Roule as a periodical outlet for music, instead of an actual label. In an interview, he once stated:

"Rouléís never really been a ďlabel. Itís been more of an outlet where thereís a record every year or so. Iíve never made plans for it, and I never will. Itís just something that is there.íí
