A definitive highlight of 2012 was the unleashing of SASCHIENNE's debut longplayer "Unknown", which introduced the extensive fanbase of long-standing Kompakt ally Sascha Funke to his new project run in conjunction with partner in crime Julienne Dessagne. Considered by many to be one of the album's most epic cuts, the thriving GRAND CRU now sees its release as a double headliner, featuring a majestic live version fuelled by monolithic synth work and immersive vocals, and a gripping remix from the infallible PACHANGA BOYS, who pull out all the stops and knowingly escalate the glamour level. A fierce dancefloor juggernaut, this mean machine will blow many a mind with its edgy sultriness and powerful momentum... when things click, they click loud. Check out the great, albeit Janus-faced video for "Grand Cru", shot and edited by MARCO DOS SANTOS (who's also responsible for Jennifer Cardini's "Venom" video), and featuring some of Kompakt's biggest artists in a semi-documentary narrative that never really shows its cards.
