Born Bangalter in 1947, Daniel Vangarde is a French songwriter and producer. In 1967, he met Jean Kluger who became his publisher. In the 1970s, their tandem stood out in those fields, for a plethora of popular French artists such as Petula Clark, Claude François, Joe Dassin, Dalida, Régine, Sheila and Ringo.
1975 saw the birth of Vangarde’s label, Zagora Records, and his first and only solo LP. Later on, Vangarde and Kluger were responsible for a number of hit songs by The Gibson Brothers, Ottawan and La Compagnie Créole. With or without Kluger, Vangarde also wrote and produced songs that remained underground, under several monikers and for various artists. This compilation opens these incredible vaults with 20 rare tracks and hidden gems from the secret father of French disco, recorded between 1971 and 1984. For disco funk, library music and cosmic beats lovers.
