<b>French Touch</b> is a French house compilation. French house is essentially a combination of three production styles. One is what the French still refer to as "the French touch" and it is the style that is greatly influenced by the space disco sound. The second is a continuation and update of Euro disco and greatly influenced by the productions of Alec R. Costandinos. The third would be the deep American house style as evident in the similar treatment of samples and repetitive funky hooks. Naturally further variations and mutations followed. French house maintains the established French touch sound, focused more on Euro disco-like vocals and less emphasis on the space disco themes. However, most of the music's most successful acts have altered their sound since. Bob Sinclar's later work including the big hit "World, Hold On (Children of the Sky)", which had a video based on a science fiction theme, maintains only a distant connection to the original French house sound. Both Daft Punk and Etienne De Crecy developed a harder synthetic sound more directly inspired by techno and electro for their most recent albums.
