Kitsuné Unveils New Singles
- Words: Fred Miketa
Paris-based Kitsuné imprint is no stranger to pumping out singles from up-and-coming dance artists, as is evident by its slew of releases that helped acts like Digitalism, Guns ‘N’ Bombs, and Thieves Like Us make names for themselves. For the label’s next installment of singles, it enlisted the new wave of soon-to-be all-ages club anthems from Glasgow’s dark indie-poppers Big Face, Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya, The Teenagers, and fellow Parisian Yelle.
Big Face’s recently released “I Wanna Be A Style Crusader” is one of the more shocking Kitsuné offerings yet, borrowing from vintage industrial acts like Throbbing Gristle and Echo and the Bunnymen. Will it depress those hungry for more poppy electro-house? Probably not, considering that the group enlisted the Daft Punk-esque posterboy DatA and London’s David E. Sugar to handle the remix treatment.
But even with the slew of new talent the label is unleashing, it's the remixed B-sides that may propel these singles into overdrive. Featuring reinterpretations of the aforementioned artists from hype-worthy names like CSS, Punks Jump Up, Gentlemen Drivers, Riot In Belgium, Passions, and more, the new season of Parisian singles is looking pretty fresh.
