Different Recordings is an electronic music label owned by the [PIAS] Entertainment Group, a Europen independent music company. The label was launched during the emergence of the French house scene and over the years has represented a broad range of electronic music with releases by artists such as Etienne de Crecy, Alex Gopher, Alan Braxe, Tiga, The Hacker, Felix Da Housecat, MSTRKRFT, Crystal Castles and Vitalic.
The label’s first release in 1996 was the album Pansoul by Motorbass, a project of producers Etienne de Crecy and Philippe Zdar of Cassius. De Crecy’s next project, Superdiscount, was released a year later and is still considered by many[who?] as the first album of the French house genre.
In 2008 Different Recordings licensed and released the eponymous debut album by Crystal Castles which was named by the NME as one of the best albums of the decade with the band featuring on the magazine’s cover twice in one year.
