Kitsuné Maison 10
Today Kitsuné released Kitsuné Maison 10 (digital). Today is a special day for my favorite record label.
I remember falling in LOVE with Kitsuné back in 2002 while record shopping in London. It just so happens that my first purchase off of their catalog (very new at the time) was coincidentally a compilation titled “Love”. It was a glorious record shopping day, being a HUGE Deee-Lite fan I also grabbed a Towa Tei 12″ from one of the record bins without realizing it was from the same label. Two awesome finds off one label in one day was almost too much for me. I was instantly intrigued. After that day Kitsune releases became a bit of an obsession every time I went record shopping in Europe.
For those of you who have no idea what the hell Kitsune is think early Cut Copy, La Roux before she turned coorporate, or the beginning of Whitest Boy Alive. It’s the little-French-label-that-could and now it’s become one of the most internationally recognized taste making and trend setting brands withing the arthouse crowds. Besides constantly introducing us to new and amazing indie music they also have a full clothing line (on the costly side) and a few boutiques.
