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.

SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1After years of publishing our music/art discoveries on this blog, the community has shown us that true artistry has no boundaries. To start off our official 3rd year of MELTING OF AGE, we thought a compilation would be the best fitting. Compiled of artists we have admired over our time as a blog, SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1 constructs, to what we hope, a cohesive album full of original pieces that best represents MOA. For this first comp, we collected a total of 13 artists from around the world to showcase their workmanship in production and songwriting. From heated house to experimental club music, we are excited to present SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1 as the first edition to our new compilation series! Below share and listen to SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1!
The first single released off of the new MOA compilation by Los Angeles based producer Omniboi, and New Jersey vocalist/producer Ehiorobo, is a wonderful combination of their two very unique styles in music. Omniboi’s jazzy production synchronizes perfectly with Ehiorobo’s R&b style vocals on "1 Slash Million." The track starts off with some attention grabbing vocals from Ehi paired with Omni’s unique production, leading into a lovely chorus that's so catchy it’ll be stuck in your head for days, then wraps up with a soft ending and heavy bassline. Every second of this tune is a showcase of both artists’ strong points in music, and it clearly shows. If this track is any indicator of how good the rest of the compilation is going to be, you’re all in for a real treat! Below share and listen to Ehiorobo and Omniboi's "1 Slash Million"!
From his new EP, Apart, LA producer, Robokid, takes off with an exceptional piece titled, "Worth It"! Vocals by Robokid himself, the track mixes in pop and house instrumentals creating a catchy tune for your ears to feed on. Lyrics of honesty and life's unexpected experiences, "Worth It" encases the emotional aspect of the EP. Released through LA-based label Moving Castle, Robokid establishes his own sound and voice through this new project. Below share and listen to Robokid's "Worth It" and the rest of his new EP!
