For 2015, French Touch producer/DJ and conceptual artist ETIENNE DE CRECY is reviving his Super Discount series with Super Discount 3, due out Tuesday, January 20 on Ultra Music.  Enticing music lovers who are particularly fond of the cheeky electro infused house music styles coming out of the Parisian music scene (Daft Punk, Cassius), iTunes Radio First Play is now streaming the album through its release. Listen now here: http://smarturl.it/ETCSD3PreStream

In addition, ETIENNE DE CRECY teamed with director Dimitri Paihle and writer/DJ Bill Brewster (“Last Night A DJ Saved My Life”) to create a short documentary about the history and creation of the Super Discount series.  The 11-minute piece–which features interviews with DE CRECY alongside fellow pioneers of the French Touch movement Alex Gopher and Philippe Zdar—made its premiere yesterday on Pitchfork TV and can now be viewed here: http://youtu.be/JufW0lqNKcU

DE CRECY will return to the U.S. in February for a select run of DJ tour dates. Starting February 12, he will appear at Verboten in New York City, Coda in Philadelphia, Area 51 in Salt Lake City, Mezzanine in San Francisco and Bardot in Miami with more dates to be added.  At each date he’ll highlight material from Super Discount 3 alongside his back catalogue and some of his other favorite cuts.  The complete routing follows below.

Songs included on SUPER DISCOUNT 3 are “You” featuring vocals by Madeline Follin (Cults), a sexy track with its bell-like and Moroder-style synths,, “Night (Cut The Crap)” and “Hashtag My Ass” plus contributions from De La Soul’s Pos & Dave on “WTF,” “Smile” with French Touch comrade Alex Gopher, Tom Burke of Citizens! on “Sunset,” American artist Kilo Kish on “Fellow” and U.K. indie rock musician Baxter Dury on “Family.” 

In the 90s, ETIENNE DE CRÉCY was the guiding hand behind the albums Super Discount (1997) and Super Discount 2 (2004), featuring contributions from French mainstays Alex Gopher, Air, Cassius and DJ Mehdi. Along with Philippe Zdar, future member of Cassius, he also formed the legendary duo Motorbass, whose 1995 album Pansoul was a seminal work of the emergent French Touch, confirming the credentials of French house.
