French label Kitsuné is world renowned for taste-making in the electronic music world, and when we heard they’re having a Bastille Day party at Le Bain to celebrate their new compilation, Kitsuné Soleil Mix, we knew we had to Occupy! OXD can say through experience that the Kitsuné imprimatur on anything pretty much guarantees it will be spectacular. So why not bring a great crowd to the party and share in the fun?
As you can tell from previewing the compilation below (which includes tracks from Cut Copy, Goldroom, Gigamesh, Plastic Plates, and M83), we’re very excited about this new release. The fact that the label has brought in Moon Boots and Punks Jump Up to spin at the event only cements the notion that it will be a fantastic party with great music.
Moon Boots is a bit elusive but we do recognize that every release the American DJ and producer puts out is top-notch. Of interesting note, his song ‘Off My Mind’ beautifully opens the Future Disco Vol. 5: Downtown Express compilation, which we are still playing on repeat.
A more recent track is Moon Boots’ rework for Monsoon Season’ ‘Green On Blue’ which features vocals by Miss Bee, was just released this week.
Punks Jump Up is a duo comprised of Londoner Joe Attard & the Swede David Andersson, who have remixed many artists such as Miike Snow, Lykke Li, Gossip, Robyn, Yelle and more. They also released three singles of their own, the latest being ‘Mr. Overtime,’ with vocals by Dave 1 from Chromeo.
We hope you’re able to join us on the 15th. We had a great turnout at our last Occupy event and it would be great to share a dance again. Give us a shout in the comments, or join the event page on Facebook and let us know if you’re able to make it.
