My Contribution to the Global Warming compiles more than 50 productions, remixes and previously unreleased tracks.
Etienne De Crecy will a five-disc retrospective in April called My Contribution to the Global Warming.
De Crecy is arguably one of France's most important electronic music exports. He burst into mainstream consciousness in 1996 with Super Discount, an album he produced with Alex Gopher and Air among others. That one sold more than 200,000 copies and helped define the sound of French Touch. After two more albums over the next half-decade—Tempovision and Super Discount 2—he became less active, and started releasing mostly through his own label, Pixadelic.
My Contribution to Global Warming gives a detailed cross section of De Crecy's oeuvre. All in all, the package includes 17 "best of" selections, 19 of his remixes for other artists (including Kraftwerk, DJ Mehdi, Lil Louis and Cut Copy) plus 26 previously unreleased productions. "To give a representative overview of my work, I brought together the most symbolic tracks of the different stages of my career," he says. "For 20 years now I've been trying to make our planet a 'hotter' place—especially on Saturday nights! This box set sums up my method."
My Contribution to the Global Warming will be available as a CD or vinyl box set.
