Motorbass were the gently beating heart of French dance music in the 1990s, the duo’s octopus arms encircling everything positive that would come to pass in the scene’s French touch pomp. The duo consisted of Étienne de Crécy, who would record the epochal Super Discount albums, and Philippe Zdar, later of Cassius and an acclaimed producer and mixer for the likes of Phoenix, the Beastie Boys and Cat Power.

Stardust have reformed to re-master their 1998 French house classic ‘Music Sounds Better With You’.
The track, the brainchild of Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, producer Alan Braxe and vocalist Benjamin Diamond, is arguably one of the most recognisable house tracks of the past two decades and has served as a hallmark of the french house canon.

Renowned French house producer Etienne de Crécy has just revealed a brand-new collaborative album entitled 'Super Discount 3'.

Back then, when that record came out, he was too young to get into the Paris nightclubs that played the tune.
