Pixadelic Records represents the Belgium based music label launched in 2004 and run by Etiennne De Crecy.

Étienne Bernard Marie de Crécy (French pronunciation: [etjɛn də kʁesi]; also known as Superdiscount, EDC, Minos Pour Main Basse and Mooloodjee) (born 25 February 1969, Lyon, France) is a French DJ andproducer who composes electronic music, primarily house.

Crécy was born in Lyon, but moved to Versailles from Marseille in the mid 1980s, attending the same Jules Ferry college as Air and Alex Gopher, with whom he later created the Solid label. He then worked in Paris as a sound engineer at studio +XXX ("plus thirty") where he met Philippe Zdar of Cassius, with whom he worked on the Motorbass album, a preview of what would be his second album: Super Discount, released in 1996, with Air, Alex Gopher and other French artists on Solid. Étienne de Crécy has been involved in various music projects where he worked as a producer.

Super Discount was Étienne de Crécy's first release, including the well known singles "Tout doit disparaître" (Everything must go) and "Prix Choc" (Shock Price). Super Discount is considered by many as the first album of what is called the French touch. Super Discount received very favourable reviews and sold over 200,000 copies.

The Tempovision track "Am I Wrong" used a sample of Millie Jackson's voice singing "Am I wrong to hunger...", from the song "(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right". "Am I Wrong" peaked at #44 in the UK Singles Chart in January 2001.

Eight years after the first Super Discount album, came Super Discount 2 with the original team, and the addition of Cassius. For this album, he used only old analog instruments, for example a TB303, and produced twelve electro-house-pop-new wave songs designed for clubs, in the continuity of the first Super Discount. Pursuing the 'discount' concept of the first album, all the tracks are named after peer-to-peer clients: "Overnet", "Napster", and so on. Étienne de Crécy, talking about the concept for the third album, said: ďyou have to be autistic in working in the music industry not to realize that something happens through the MP3 exchanges. Itís not discount anymore! Itís free!Ē and added ďwhat the music industry doesnít understand, is that young people will not build their own music culture if they donít have free access to the music.Ē

Étienne de Crécy's more recent tracks have focused more on an electronic sound. They have also begun to be released on the Pixadelic label.
