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

Label 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. The label was left defunct in 2003, and shut down.

The launch of Crydamoure (absent of Thomas Bangalter) 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. As de Homem-Christo concentrated on other projects and partnerships, so too did Bangalter, who also owned his own record label called Roulé. This gave Bangalter a chance to release his own music, but also to work with his friend DJ Falcon (Stéphane Quême), calling their collaborations Together. 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. There has been little information provided to the general public about the label, and the label's upcoming roster is unknown.[1]
