Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

What can you say about Parisian house guru Etienne De Crecy? As one half of Motorbass, this world-class producer introduced us to the myriad delights of French dance music then solidified his reputation by overseeing the sublime Super Discount compilation--a legend in its own lifetime. You want quality? Well you've come to the right place. Tempovision is a staggering piece of work, a place where lush, stoner-house meets the more digestible end of electronica. Opener "Relax" says it all--a self-instructive mantra for the uptight and anxious, its warm, expansive chords and feel-good vibe set the tone for a decidedly unhurried affair. De Crecy's forte is the clever amalgamation of supple, jazz-flecked mood pieces with languid, often soulful takes on the house blueprint. "Out of My Hands" pits flatulent Moog over gossamer strings to stunning effect, while the title track's mesmerising blend of 1930s film star glamour and gritty hip-hop nous has to be heard to be believed. The total effect is evocative of tarmac on a hot summer's day: awkwardly fragrant and sticky to the touch. Are you ready to melt? --Paul Tierney

5.0 out of 5 stars E de C does it again 15 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Etienne is a modern day, french Midas. Everything he touches turns to musical gold. He can chill out with the best of them (check 'Soldissimo' on Super Discount for a masterclass in chill) but when he goes upbeat it's just as good. 'Am I Wrong' is an absolute house anthem that simply is unbeatable. The more laidback tunes never slouch, they create a lazy atmosphere but they are not the work of lazy musicians. '3 Day Weekend' has a beautiful summery feel that makes me crave for french sunshine.
I could go through every track on the album and tell you why each one is so good, but I would be wasting your time. Every second you spend of your life having not listened to this album is a wasted second, so buy this and live a more fulfilled life. E de C is a hero and deserves a truckload more recognition than he gets. This album is a 'super discount' at any price!! (A pun that bad deserves a couple of exclamation marks just to make sure everyone gets it). Etienne de Crecy - a top bloke and a legend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relax... 7 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a very nice album which has become my exclusive recovery soundtrack for sundays. It starts slow, builds up a little bit then drifts off into the afternoon distorting time. By the time you wake up it's dark outside and you've missed the shops...better just hit play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not an album - an experience! 12 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
I loved the Super Discount compilation and always wandered what on Earth would ever replace it when and if I ever tired of it. Well, Tempovision is the answer to that one! Cool French funk, sexy samples & groovy, fat basslines oozing pure audio sex appeal. Chill out or sway like a palm tree to this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of musical genius.. 29 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
Having loved Super Discount, i was sceptical to whether this would live upto my expectations, and in my opinion it betters it. Although slightly more upbeat than Super Discount, it remains uniquely laid back with the lyrics and melodies of each tune sticking in your head for hours! My personal favourites are 'Out of my hands' and 'When Jack met Jill', two sophisticated,chilled works of art..

4.0 out of 5 stars No need for discount 24 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you don't know about "Super Discount" then you might need to look for some professional help. Etienne De Crecy is the prince of French house and his "Super Discount" is the project that curved the path for the whole genre. Three years later he returns with "Tempovision". Now that every one is a DJ and dance music is over hyped it is hard to come up with something new so Etienne De Crecy just slowed down a little and tried to create a musical piece that will live up to the expectations. And he succeeded. It's brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great laid back house album 3 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a great album, I love it. Most of it is laid back hosue, so it's easy to listen to. The one exception to the laid back rule is "Am I Wrong" which is as good a house anthem as Daft Punk have ever done. Why there wasn't a fan fare when this classic was released I'll never know, if I wasnlt so on the ball I'd have missed it. Well recommended!
