CHARITY SHOP CLASSICS (18)

A couple more singles from the charity shop rummage – America’s Thievery Corporation and France’s Etienne de Crecy.

 

First up, Amercia’s finest downtempo artists Thievery Corproation with a mix of their classic single “Lebanese Blonde”. Rob Garza and Eric Hilton met at Eighteenth Street Lounge in May 1995. They were introduced by a mutual friend and proceeded to discuss their admiration for the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the 60’s bossa sound. Weeks later, in a home studio, they began to work on the music that would launch Thievery Corporation. After several early 12″ singles, Thievery Corporation released Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi on ESL Music. That record is already considered by most to be a classic of the new electronic era.

 

Next, Etienne de Crecy, who is suprise, surprise French. His real name is Etienne Bernard Marie de Crécy. He was part of the wave of French House that broke in the mid-90s. He is also part of Motorbass.
