Gigolo's most successful release came in 2001, with Vitalic's Poney EP (which included techno favourite "La Rock 01" on the B-side). This EP was remastered and re-issued in 2006.

The label also releases showcase compilations, sometimes called "We Are Gigolo", of which there are now twelve volumes.
