David has been a major activist in the french house music scene since the late 90's, in particular with his label Brique Rouge which gained international recognition.
Independant House Institute for Proper Underground House Music created and managed by David Duriez - operating secretly since 1999 - based in France -
Briquerouge has been at the leading forefront of House Music in the early 2000's releasing tons of records every years, bringing back a new wave of Acid House in 2002 (the first wave) and bringing to light a few artists that are now well established.
Created and operated by David Duriez, the label has always stayed underground refusing to release albums or manage artists careers. Only vinyls (and a fistful of celebration cd compilations).
The main goal is music, not ego, not marketing.
Briquerouge has been the first french label to sell its catalogue in digital format online with no DRM (which seems normal today but wasn't at that time). The label created its own platform in 2004 to do so. The company was also trying to combine digital and physical but after several problems with records distribution companies, the label has been put down in 2008, struggling financialy and legaly due, for the second time, to the complete demise of a physical distributor.
in 2013, after a long hyatus, David Duriez succeeded in getting back the vinyls stock and all the back catalogue which lead to the idea of being here today, typing this small explanation.
