REVIEW: ETIENNE DE CRÉCY - "SUPER DISCOUNT 3" ALBUM
ETIENNE DE CRECY- "SUPER DISCOUNT 3" ALBUM
" Super Discount 3" more like "Super Disco 3."
S.D.3. Thinks if the Bee Gees were DJs in the year 3000 then this album could
be there music.* All I picture, when listening to this album, is myself walking in
downtown LA, specifically S. Los Angeles St., and feeling like the most amazing
person around. Etienne de Crécy brings back those funk and disco vibes that could
be heard in the streets of either LA or New York City back in the day. He
collaborates with a variety of vocalists to develop this magnificent album that
spirals your mind to the 80s and maybe even 70s. Songs like “Hashtag my AS*” and
“Wtf” incorporate that nu disco and old school sound with today’s modern vocabulary
giving “Super Discount 3” that special edge. These key components makes Etienne
de Crécy one of the most spontaneous and eccentric artist out there today. One
of my favorites is “You” ft. Madeline Follin due to its enticing vocals and
harmonies flute solos. To be honest, “Super Discount 3” has to be one of the
most unique albums I have ever heard. I hope in the future he will have huge
influence on how music is produced and created due to how well he has put together
his latest creation.

How long have you been creating art? idk What is your typical process for creating a virtually immersive piece? A typical animation requires the artist to frame the action and only create what is within the frame. This type of framing allows for very strong storytelling because every frame introduces a meaningful element or event and each frame is isolated from the other by a cut. In my case, the process is clos…

NOAH GARTON (MAJOR)
Written by: DEVON Hi there! Welcome to MEDIUM! This new interview series is focused on visual artists using all kinds of mediums to express their creativity. We hope this series gives you insight into artists’ inspiration, process and style.
Our first MEDIUM interview comes from Noah Garton who goes by the alias “major”. Noah is 18 years old and is from Essex, UK. How long have you been creating art? Mmnnnmnm well it wasn't as simple as an 'ok art time' type thing. I started out making awful ear-rape memes and shit-posts for my own entertainment in early 2015 with Sony Vegas, and then transitioned to cover art and animations along the way somehow. Here's the earliest known meme I have (please. kind reviews only) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdj036hNbBE … But I think I properly started in November 2017 when, after a few first attempts at art, my friend Ari took £100 off me and threatened to donate it to UKIP (very right wing UK party) if I didn’t do d…
