Deep Forest

Mainstream Artist

The French duo of Michel Sanchez and Eric Moquet are well-known among fans of World Music, and the inclusion of a Deep Forest track on the original Pure Moods compilation justifies their position among this elite group, despite their not receiving mainstream radio play (that I know of). In general, each of their albums is focused on the folk music of a particular region, or of a few regions. Many Nu Ambient artists assimilate the sounds of other cultures; Deep Forest starts with regional music, and builds a musical frame around it. Spreading awareness of other cultures seems to be a goal of these producers, and their liner notes typically provide information about their source material.
