Kartell – Attracted

kartell

‘Attracted’ is the second track to come from Kartell’s upcoming EP ‘Tender Games’ which is due out 1st June. One of the more purely house focussed numbers on the EP, ‘Attracted’ is gorgeously melodic and showcases the nail-on-head production you can expect to hear throughout the entire record.

Having already garnered support from various tastemakers, Kartell has left a lasting impression in his native France and across the world. Kartell is an iconic figure and spearhead of French label, Roche Musique (Darius, FKJ, Cherokee, Zimmer, Cézaire…). Supported and acknowledged by producers such as Kaytranada, The Magician, Bondax or Kastle, Kartell has made a name for himself as a young and gifted house producer with two of his most famous collaborations (Karma Kid/Jabberwocky) receiving over one million views.

Opening with a serious nod towards house and chillwave, Tender Games is delicate and upbeat from the word go. The three track B-side is more dancefloor focussed but maintains the expert sensibility that Kartell is famed for.

Following the success of Riviera in 2012 and Sapphire in 2013, ‘Tender Games’ is highly anticipated and will reaffirm the way Kartell is already viewed within the industry: A French house music pioneer.

Loframes – Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love) EP

loframes

We’ve already featured ‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’, the great debut single from Loframes, a hands across the water partnership between London born artist James Yuill and French producer Franck Russo.

You can now stream the full set of tracks on Soundcloud, so along with the original version you have remixes from Roche Musique’s Kartell and up and coming UK producer Aashton and a 2nd original track, ‘1996’. Both remixes are sure to soundtrack dancefloors and poolsides alike throughout 2015, while ‘1996’ is a track that eschews the romantic pathos of ‘Get Real’ for more straight up dancefloor euphoria.

Loframes (James Yuill + Franck Russo) – Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)

loframes

‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’ is the debut single from Loframes, a hands across the water partnership between London born artist James Yuill and French producer Franck Russo. An addictive introduction to the band, ‘Get Real’ is a lovelorn yet satin sheet smooth ménage of classic Pop songwriting and Deep House that does more to rehabilitate the saxophone in 3 and a half minutes than anyone since Tim Capello’s oiled torso took centre stage on the Lost Boys soundtrack.

Turning their debut over to two of their friends, ‘Get Real’ come with remixes from Roche Musique’s Kartell and up and coming UK producer Aashton. Stripping the track back to its essential dancefloor components Kartell works back from there to create a stunningly deep rework, whilst Aashton injects more than a little bump’n’grind and Garage shuffle into the proceedings. Both remixes are sure to soundtrack dancefloors and poolsides alike throughout 2015.

Completing the package Loframes give us ‘1996’, a track that eschews the romantic pathos of ‘Get Real’ for more straight up dancefloor euphoria. A hands in the air House anthem that acknowledges the ‘90s sound without being beholden to it, this is the kind of track that will make ‘em sweat everywhere from South London basements to Miami beach parties.

Already selected for Toolroom’s upcoming ‘Poolside Ibiza 2015’ compilation (mixed by Cyclist) ‘Get Real’ sees Loframes up at the crack of dawn to place their towel on the music industry’s sun lounger, staking their claim to be one of 2015’s most exciting new electronic music acts.

Released March 9th exclusively on Beatport. General Release: March 23, 2015

Kartell – Turn Over

‘Turn Over’ is taken from a 7 track EP from Kartell released on January 6th on Roche Musique – the label that made their name releasing the likes of French Kiwi Juice and Cherokee. Maintaining the sun-drenched house tones that have made Roche Musique’s name, ‘Turn Over’ flips that classic R&B sample on it’s head for a fun, party track.
