Whether EDC and compatriots Daft Punk and StGermain were directly responsible for a starring role and the mass acceptance of Air, Cassius, Stardust, Bob Sinclar et al is purely subjective; what's not is their supportrole in the breaking down of boundaries that would almost certainly be responsible for the later Gallic invasion.
Super Discount 2 is another cross-pollination of electro, techno and house with De Crécy the major architect. Its pluses include the storming instrumental "Fast Track" (an amazingly simple driving number in partnership with Julien Delfaud and Alex Gopher built around a relentless bassline), the neo-classical Daft Punk-like "Grokster" and the ultra funky bleeper, "Poisoned".
Elsewhere Giorgio Moroder's influences can be heard on the Midnight Express-like "Bit Torrent"; while the club fraternity will likely embrace "Overnet" (again with Gopher) and the simplistic analogue synths of "Limewire".
Once more De Crécy has manufactured an album of more than just mere fillers; and in the ultra addictive "Fast Track" the new wave of French techno has an anthem in the making. --Jack Smith

And personally i thought no. 2 would never top the first album, which was synonomous with the French wave that revolutionised house in the late 90s.
Good news! It does. Whilst serving up a different style of house, a more electro-tech, feel it's just as brilliant as the first album. As with Super Discount, none of the tracks stand out as huge "anthems" but 'Fast Track' with it's driving bass-guitar riff and shifting tempo is definetly aimed at the dancefloor as are 'Limewire' and 'Overnet'.
Not the french filtered disco of the first volume, but very much "finger-on-the-pulse" house with a dinstinctive Parisian flavour. Enjoy.
Soulseek by Etienne De Crecy is the best piece of music in the last 10 years.
