Crydamoure (a variation of the French phrase cri d'amour or "cry of love" in English) was a French house record label owned by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, one former half of the duo Daft Punk, and Eric Chedeville.

Background[edit]

The label was founded in 1997, with their first single "Holiday on Ice / Santa Claus" being the first release by de Homem-Christo and his label co-owner Eric Chedeville (under the guise of Le Knight Club). Crydamoure was one of the first French house labels to incorporate band and guitar influences into its production.[citation needed] The label was left defunct in 2003, and shut down.

In 2015, Crydamoure was revived after Le Knight Club released a single named "The Fight", made for the Algerian film Gates of the Sun. Le Knight Club's involvement in the revival of the label is uncertain.[1]

Legacy[edit]

The launch of Crydamoure was a chance for de Homem-Christo to embark on a sound different from Daft Punk and also a chance to bring budding new producers such as Romain Séo (Raw Man) and Paul de Homem-Christo (Play Paul; brother of Guy-Manuel) into the limelight. In regards to Crydamoure, Homem-Christo stated:

Myself and Thomas have the same tastes in music. When I make records for Crydamoure it's a different style than what may end up as Daft Punk music. I know what Thomas likes, and he knows what I like. Crydamoure is not so production oriented, even if it's not too far from Daft Punk. The Daft Punk material is more orchestrated and slightly different. I may be working on a sample for Crydamoure, and maybe no one else can hear the difference, but we know. It's very precise.[2]
