Kitsuné, the brilliantly eclectic, forward thinking and adventurous French record and fashion label is set to celebrate 10 years at the hub of Parisian cool with a year jam packed of one-of-a-kind parties, exciting new compilation albums as well as releases from a super hot hand picked selection of the labels brightest signings and a brand new store opening in New York.
Over the course of a decade, Kitsuné have firmly established themselves as a force to reckon with. Cleverly bridging music, fashion and design, this young and unique brand is the brainchild of Daft Punk’s art-director/ manager Gildas Loaec and architecture/ fashion design student Masaya Kuroki.
Kitsuné first started its label activity back in 2002 by releasing singles by up and coming bands and commissioning some of the hottest DJs around to remix these. It was not long before Kitsuné unveiled a knack for discovering fresh talent and over the years the label has become the first house of the likes of Klaxons, La Roux, Bloc Party, Digitalism and Delphic and has released tracks remixed by the likes of Vitalic, Yuksek, Brodinski, Crookers, Passion Pit, Boys Noize, Mark Ronson, Clock Opera…. The list goes on! Watch this space for news on 2012’s EP releases from Computer Magic, BeatauCue & Juveniles…
The Kitsuné compilation series, which began in 2002 with the notorious “Love” edition has since progressed to include exclusive tracks from some of the world’s hottest musical talents including Two Door Cinema Club, Hot Chip, Feist, Phoenix, Simian Mobile Disco, Foals, Klaxons, Soulwax and Wolfmother to name but a few. Some projects have also been born from exciting collaborations such as the partnerships with Petit Bateau, East London webmag Ponystep as well as the Kitsune Tabloid series which has been curated by Digitalism, Phoenix and The Twelves so far. Kitsuné Parisien II is out now ! Kitsuné AMERICA made up from 100% American acts is due for release April 2012.
Kitsuné label can also be accredited with a string of tremendously successful debut artist album releases including those of Hot Chip, Digitalism, Wolfmother, Two Door Cinema Club and Is Tropical. Most recently Two Door Cinema Club headlined the NME Award Tour 2012 and their debut album has gone platinum in the UK. In May 2012 you can look forward to Kitsuné’s release of the highly anticipated debut album from Citizens!
