Roulé (translating to "rolled") is a French record label founded in 1995 by Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter. Roulé has a side label entitled Scratché which to date has released only one record, produced by the Buffalo Bunch (Paul de Homem-Christo and Romain Séo).

Label history

The Roulé label has released work by artists such as Romanthony, Stardust, Roy Davis, Jr., DJ Falcon, Alan Braxe, Together as well as Thomas Bangalter's own material.

The fifth release on Roulé was "Music Sounds Better with You" by Stardust. The single was a number one hit on the dance charts in many European countries. Stardust consisted of singer Benjamin Diamond and Alan Braxe & Thomas Bangalter on the production side. "Music Sounds Better with You" contains a sample of Fate performed by Chaka Khan.

Although the label has existed since 1995 and has released several EPs, Roulé has only released one long player: the Irréversible soundtrack. In an interview, he once stated :

Roulé’s never really been a “label.” It’s been more of an outlet where there’s a record every year or so. I’ve never made plans for it, and I never will. It’s just something that is there. I know for Guy-Manuel, Crydamoure is more of a label.
