Kitsuné are set to toast their tenth anniversary with a new instalment of their 'Kitsuné Maison' compilation series.
After the furious experimentation of the 90s, dance music seemed to simmer down at the turn of the Millennium. The past decade, though, has witnessed the rise of France as a force in electronic music and in particular the career of Kitsuné.
Now the label are turning ten. Hosting a series of celebrations, Kitsuné are gearing up for a new instalment of their 'Kitsuné Maison' compilation series. Typically diverse, the new album from Kitsuné boasts plenty of the indie-dance which made their name - step forward Friends, Citizens! - alongside some out and out electro house flair.
Amongst the surprises on show are a collaboration between Lorenz Rhode and Jamie Lidell, the first remix from Kitsuné’s captain Gildas Loaec and more. Reflecting on the label's journey recently, Loaec said: “We treat ourselves by releasing the music that we like, hoping it’ll touch others too. Our fan base keeps on growing; we believe it is working out pretty well.”
Out on November 5th, the album will coincide with a one off party in London. Taking place at Vauxhall powerhouse Fire, the Kitsuné night on November 24th will feature a cross section of their roster alongside a few guest appearances.
