This 2CD compilation is the beginning of a yearly series and is a representative selection of established Connaisseur artists as well as up-and-coming new members of the label's roster. "Grand Cru" is a term used in the wine business and normally denominates a special wine, which is made from the best grapes of both one wine-producing area and one vintage. The stylistic diversities featured on this compilation aren't less refined and versatile. CD1 features artists such as Afrilounge, with an elegantly lowered house groove and Jochen Trappe, setting the benchmark with his glitch-rock tech. Daso teams up with his ingenious partner, Pawas to make even the most lame couch potato taste their own very special Beaujolais and freak out on the dancefloor. Furthermore, Ripperton bares his Detroit soul with a special track that makes everyone's heart beat and the legs boogie. Needless to say, Connaisseur's old school techno preachers Plasmik are also on board with a crunchy and massively deep groover while Girrèsse & Erb and Estroe & ZoëXenia manage to come up with tracks interwoven with smooth vocals. Pele is a highly promising producer talent who had his debut on Connaisseur with a compact gem. CD2 is a joyous melding of all these sounds and more, mixed by the inimitable Patrick Chardronnet. Other artists include: Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Sebastian Roya, Simon Baker, Shokh and Rekleiner.
