Matthieu Couturier, Co-founder and President of Grand Musique Management comments, &#34;We are very happy to begin this collaboration with Downtown Music Publishing and its excellent organization, who is known for working with legendary artists covering a scope of both legacy and new works.&#39;

Downtown Music Publishing will also be providing global administration and sync placement for lauded producer, tienne de Crcy. Pioneering the French touch movement of the 1990s, Lyon-born tienne de Crcy is the mastermind behind some of electronic musics most trailblazing albums. Working as a sound engineer for the legendary Plus XXX studio in Paris, de Crcy met the late musician and producer, Phillipe Zdar and eventually formed the duo, Motorbass whose first album Pansoul in 1994 served as the birth of French House.

The deal will include de Crcys legendary back catalog and all future releases, including Super Discount, Tempovision released in 2001 and the 2009 follow up to his debut solo album, Super Discount 2 produced entirely using old analog instruments.

Released in 1995, tienne de Crcys first solo album, Super Discount went on to sell over 200,000 copies and was ranked by Q Magazine in their 1997 list of &#34;The 25 Best Dance Albums Ever&#34;. Its critical success placed the album as one of the most iconic, seminal masterpieces to emerge from electronic music.

The announcement follows a significant number of high-profile signings for Downtown Music Publishing in the last year, including Josh Ramsay, who co-wrote Carly Rae Jepsens Call Me Maybe, Grammy-winning artist and songwriter, Raja Kumari and iconic alt-rock group The National.

Laura Bedikian, Senior A&amp;R Manager, France for Downtown Music Publishing comments, Downtown Music Publishing is proud to be working and representing the seminal work of two legendary producers.
