03/03/2021: “Prix Choc” by Etienne de Crecy

Apparently, this absolute gem of a track was created in a hurry on an
S1000 and Atari 1048 – two quite archaic pieces of kit.

Not only that, but the sample, from 1969’s “Hurt So Bad” by Grant Green, has a prominent guitar lick which had to be edited out on the old battered samplers.

So how is this track such a smooth, accomplished groover?

“Prix Choc” came out in 1996 on Super┬áDiscount, a brilliant album which has been skilfully disguised as a cheap compilation album.

It really is a fantastic song, oozing class. Magnifique!
