Etienne de Crécy revealed the music video of the track “Smile”, which he directed himself.
The track “Smile” originally appears on Etienne de Crecy‘s last LP, Super Discount 3, released earlier this year. Even though the video is only available now, an EP of the track, Smile – Vocal Mix EP, was released in September with remixes of Don Dada, Moonbootica, Clyde P, Mijo and Malikk.
“Smile (Vocal Mix)” was composed in association with another French Touch legend, Alex Gopher, and features the vocals of the American hip-hop singer Asher Roth. In this video directed by Etienne de Crécy and produced by kiss & kill, de Crécy captures a morning commute on Glendale Boulevard in Los Angeles from a driver’s point of view while listening to “Smile”. The video includes a radio intro courtesy of KCRW 89.9 DJ Jason Bentley.
About the track, Etienne de Crecy says: “I discovered Asher Roth with the “Tangerine Girl“ video. When I thought of a vocalist to feature for “Smile”, I could only think of him to bring the easy-going funkiness I was looking for in this track. But the surprise was how fast he composed the track! In a matter of hours at Alex Gopher’s studio. That was amazing!”
