“Even if you do not parle français, it’s easy to see Quelu is a star on the rise” – Surviving The Golden Age
French newcomer Quelu is pleased to announce details of a brand new track ‘Carré’ taken from the new 14-track compilation ‘Kitsuné Parisien’ by iconic label Kitsuné Musique.
Quelu details the track: “I wanted to make a song about self-esteem. The main message would be realizing that self-esteem comes first with inner development, and not physical: muscles without a mind are not very useful. It’s a modern ode to the inner-self-improvement.”
Kitsuné Musique have relaunched themselves thsi year with a new logo design and outlook. Co-founder Gildas says: ““We are extremely excited to launch 2019 with a brand new image direction and logo for Kitsuné Musique. The new logo encapsulates a more modern and progressive outlook and features the word ‘Musique’ in French as a homage to our French roots. We also aim to adhere to our ethos of discovering new music through a unique experience, whether it’s with a single release mixing the worlds of music and design or attending a Kitsuné Afterwork party in Seoul to discover the local scene. We are bringing together a stronger entertainment entity, uniting both the label and the events under one roof”.
Following on from the acclaimed ‘Kitsuné Parisien 4’, which presented the then undiscovered gems by Møme, Napkey, Zimmer, Grace Hopkins, Lewis Ofman and more, ‘Kitsuné Parisien’ returns with its 5th installment, showcasing once again music by France’s future stars.
Diverse, vibrant and refreshing, the 14-tracks blend genres across electronic, pop, bass, urban and disco. Featuring a clutch of familiar and new talent including synth-pop duo MonteRosso, 80s influenced producers Napkey, hotly tipped young producer Clem Beatz, just to name a few.
In addition, the compilation also presents exclusive new tracks by classically trained nu-disco producer NAMPA, jazz-soul rapper Quelu, leftfield lyricist Kemmler and soul-pop duo Edgär with already 1.75 million Spotify plays to their name.
The label’s French Touch heritage comes to the fore with offerings from EQUATEUR, GABRIEL, Cheb Miaou and Relayer. Adding more diversity to the mix are afro-beat outfit Amarula Café Club, electronic poet Sirocco and real life dream-pop couple, The Pirouettes.
Pairing up with the much-vaunted Maison Kitsuné Parisien clothing collection, fronted by US actress Rashida Jones, the ‘Kitsuné Parisien’ compilation will be taking over its iconic typography.
‘Kitsuné Parisien’ will be released digitally via Kitsuné Musique on 22nd February 2019.
