What more appropriate way to celebrate the release of Maison Kitsuné 16, than with ‘The Sweet Sixteen Edition’ – relaxed dance beats for the coolest Sweet Sixteen bashes and beyond.
Upcoming French producer Fakear mobilises the beats on the compilation with the track ‘Interstellar’ (every bit as attractive as McConaughey and every bit as epic as his latest film), set to remind you exactly what it was like to be sixteen again. “Who’s not for re-experiencing the emotions of being 16 again?” says Kitsuné co-founder Gildas Loaec.
The compilation has pulled together all the best new artists, lo-fi through to dance, to DJ for your party. The array of international artists features the likes of Buscabulla, Danglo, Citizens!, Kwamie Liv, Tobtok, We Are Shining and more.
Deeper, yet “more gentle and tender” than previous Kitsuné compilations, Loaec hopes The Sweet Sixteen Edition is “as wild and eclectic as you would expect from Kitsuné” – just don’t forget to stop to appreciate its femininity. The hip label is always on beat, with artwork for the compilation composed of drawings by 23 emerging illustrators scouted by the label.
Earlier this year we saw Maison Kitsuné’s New York Fashion Week debut at the Standard High Line, and personally, I’m a big fan of the relaxed cool vibes emanating from everything they touch.
