For the second release on our Phuturelabs digital label venture, we’re proud to introduce Hissy Fit from Montreal. An artist who has been around the Canadian scene for some time, he brings us the “Crosstrainers EP” featuring the garagey sound we love. The package features two tracks, “Crosstrainers” and “Outdoor Life”, both in their original versions and with two excellent re-edits by Hissy Fit himself.

The EP has gathered great support from Sinden, XLR8R, PBS Radio in Melbourne and Sonic Router. Watch out for future releases from Hissy Fit via his Soundcloud page.

A big thanks to Kenny Hall for the artwork. Kenny has been involved with the site for some time putting together the graphics. We are delighted he could spare the time to do a cover for us and couldn’t be happier with the results.

Shunda K ‘I’m Da Best’ (ft. Shon B)

Shunda K has reunited with former Yo! Majesty band mate Shon B on the second single from Shunda K’s upcoming solo debut album, The Most Wanted.  The song, “I’m Da Best” marks the first time that the two ladies have appeared on record together since the legendary track “Club Action” that started the Yo! Majesty phenomenon in the first place.
The track will be officially released as part of a nearly hour-long maxi-single featuring the album version along with remixes by a host of up and coming producers including The Superions, Pumpsta, The Surecut Kids, ConeyGurl and others.  The Les Gourmets remix of the track features the French rap group laying it down in their native language and the Koax The Droid remix made the cut as the winner of a contest held as an effort to introduce yet another talented producer to the world.

Recently, the UK’s legendary music paper, NME, named Shunda K’s “Here I Am To Save The World” single as one of its “10 Tracks You Need To Hear This Week” at #2 right behind Kanye West.  The maxi-single for “Here I Am To Save The World,” a collaboration with Cindy Wonderful of Scream Club was released worldwide on July 27th, 2010. The single is Shunda K’s first release as part of her new partnership with Fanatic Records to be followed by “I’m Da Best” and Shunda K’s solo debut album The Most Wanted on early 2011.

Shunda K is best known as the leader of hip hop duo, Yo! Majesty (Domino Records).  Named to the NME’s “cool list,” Shunda K has recently been seen collaborating with electro superstar Peaches on the track and video for the song “Billionaire” from the Peaches album I Feel Cream (XL Recordings).
See the video for “Billionaire” HERE <> .  Shunda K also appears on Flore’s cover of the legendary Gary Numan hit, “Cars” from Flore’s debut album, Raw.  See the video for “Cars” HERE <> .

“Blue Steel”

“Crashed Cadillac”


Bot’Ox scowl and you can never see their hands and they look like hitmen from the future. This remix of “Blue Steel” makes zero effort to dampen that image, DFA pair Still Going turning in the sort of pulsing disco/techno cut that will only ever conjure thoughts of flying cars joy-ridden through the peaks of pollution choked dystopian skylines.”

“Kitsuné Maison 10 The Fireworks Issue”?

Kitsuné to release its 10th compilation

2XCD Kitsuné Maison 10 The Fireworks Issue

Featuring music from


Here is Kitsuné’s tenth Maison compilation. The record label up front, the team’s best player, the number TEN. Here are 25 tracks in total, a double album open to anything, packed with surprises and discoveries.

To celebrate this tenth chapter, we got fireworks out and enrolled dazzling newcomers and prestigious acquaintances. People from all countries and all horizons. We called in Kitsuné’s close friends: YELLE, DIGITALISM, TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB, BLACK STROBE as well as a whole community of French, Anglo-Saxons, Aussies, Swedes… you name it.

Like we’ve managed to again enroll the singer from HOT CHIP who with KLAXONS, BLOC PARTY, GOSSIP, SOULWAX, LA ROUX, DELPHIC, SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO helped create Kitsuné’s history.

Ten times more pop, more electro, more rock. More songs, more emotion, more everything, more more more, + + +. This occasion – the celebration of the tenth Kitsuné Maison – had to be rather special.

Kitsuné online






1 – Cascadeur – “Walker (Early Remix)”

French. Gentle. Atmospheric. Dream-like and almost sad. Five years in the making. The CQFD prize of (French weekly) Les Inrockuptibles. A good start to the power of ten.

2 – Guards – “Don’t Wake The Dead”

Americans playing garage-rock. Typical NYC brutal energy. MGMT, Chairlift & Cults are friends and contribute to their recordings. Richie, the guy behind it all, posts free tracks on line. A bit of catching up for those who don’t have internet at home, or the right bookmarks or the time even.

3 – Is Tropical – “South Pacific”

The last band signed to Kitsuné. With an impressive masked look (watch those hands whilst on stage). Brilliant sound. Play this track a thousand times, we have.

4 – Yelle – “La Musique”

Always and again and again. We put out her first single. Here she’s produced by Germany’s Siriusmo who’s a bit of a don. We like Yelle.

5 – Two Door Cinema Club – “What You Know (Mustang Remix)”

An italo-disco remix by the Mustang djs from Bruxelles. Two Door Cinema Club is booming. « One of the most loved bands in the UK » as read in the NME last week.

6 – Beatacue – “Disque Oh”

Our new favorite kids. From Caen and not even eighteen yet. They’ve remixed Kylie, Two Door Cinema Club and released their debut single on Kitsuné in april 2010.

7 – Strange Talk – “Climbing Walls”

Straight from Melbourne, Australia. Alt pop, as they say there. Sounds like vitamin C. No embarrassment or inhibitions here, this is solid FM music as we like it.

8 – Punks Jump Up – “Blockhead (Edit)”

Good London djs with consistent track record. They’ve remixed Robyn, Yelle and Kele. Typical 3am peak time when the dancefloor’s rockin’.

9 – The Aikiu – “The Red Kiss”

French. Rankin shot the video. Nile Rodgers gave his blessing. And voilà !

10 – Flight Facilities – “Crave You (feat. Giselle)”

A cult classic that’s tailored to cross-over and turn into a summer hit. A song as safe as a white t-shirt. The people in the know love it, but then again you don’t need to be in the know to get it. More Aussies. There’s good stuff in Australian orange juice at the moment, isn’t there?

11 – Jolie Cherie – “Insomnie”

Because finally some French people – namely Melina, Samir et Etienne – have realised that a French band name is also very good.

12 – Wild At Heart – “Get Related”

Erik & Li are Swedish messengers of what some call slow-pop, pop although you could simply say they have charm.


1 - Clock Opera – “Once And For All”

Great lyrics, music shot on wide-lens, the kind admen will soon steal for their car or friendly banks ads. The electronic Coldplay? And we’re not even joking.

2 – Icona Pop – “Manners (Extended)”

Two Swedish girls who want the world to sing along to their heartbroken songs, dark feelings and brief euphoric moments. Rugged and persistent.

3 – Young Empires – “Glory Of The Night”

A young band formed last October and already celebrated by the blogs, unsurprising considering the amount of teenage sensuality at work, shadow play frolics and the likes.

4 – Housse De Racket – “Chateau”

The French band with the strangest band name since The Doors turns up with a very, very good song, which predicts a very, very good second album… keenly watched by Kitsuné.

5 – Teeth – “See Spaces”

Ximon, Simon and Veronica warn in their official biog: “We destroy anything we touch. All our equipment’s ruined, the sound blows out everywhere we go.” Made us want to listen. They produce themselves their own videos, pictures and fanzines…

6 – The Heartbreaks – “Liar, My Dear”

British pop as we love it. Spicy and lyrical. They’re The Drums’ favorite band, so there.

7 – Waylayers – “Fires”

Harry, James, Jon and Alan form a brand new band fresh out of Harry’s bedroom, they have a sound that demands attention, ever so particular that their early demos instantly attracted attention.

8 – Digitalism – “Blitz”

Solid track that combines grace and strength, in some kind of trance. The track is called ‘Blitz’ and was indeed designed to slay dancefloors.

9 – Black Strobe – “Me & Madonna (Twelves Remix)”

The 2010 remix of their cult hit ‘Me and Madonna’ which was bang on at the time. It’s remixed by Kitsuné’s favorite Brazilian producers: The Twelves.

10 – Justus Kohncke and Alexis Taylor – “Sorry”

This talented yet underrated German producer (he is disco!) teams up with Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor for a lo-fi slice of heavenly soul. The rest of the band will be jealous.

11 – Psychobuildings – “Terror Management”

They’re from Brooklyn (who isn’t these days? it’s a joke). Peter, Peter and Juan are on a dark wave tip. That video they had on YouTube where a guy’s dancing to the track wearing horrid pyjamas in an American Apparel shop kinda made us want to sign them. We thought wow, you got to believe to go through all that.

12 – Palbomen – “Moon Children”

It’s one boy on his own, Kai, with a lot of synths. Perfect track for mornings when you’re deciding which Kitsuné shirt to wear.

13 – May68 – “The Prisoner (Cecile Remix Jerry Bouthier Edit)”

To start with it’s a great band name with all its generational implications (May 68 is the date of the student uprising in France). Camille, Matt, Owen, Jonny and Jude (the vocalist, from Sheffield) are behind this Manchester band that fuses dancefloor and pop sensibilities in its own inimitable way. Remixed here by Cecile, the rising producer from Milan.

Kitsuné Maison 10 The Fireworks Issue is released November 15 (Digital)
