That "le beat Français" has conquered the beats-loving part
of mankind cannot only be read from the successes of Daft Punk, Etienne de Crécy,
Charles Schillings, Mr. Oizo ... also Glyth seems to be a new form of it.
Initially geared towards the black rock and industrial that was being made in
these parts, Frenchman Christophe Bailleau came over here with a breeze from the
South, and he hasn't left since. Since then, his music has been evolving from
dark industrial noise to a danceable mixture in tune with the wave of french beat

and "Disparue" invites to shaking your ass off.
"Cosmostar" also seems to be coming from a movie, and it turns out that
this was the case : it is an adaptation of the "Star Trek"-theme (written
by Gene Roddenberry himself).
