Allen French covers Frankie Knuckles ‘The Whistle Song’ for Kitsuné America
Iconic French label Kitsuné continue to pack a potential punch with ‘House Kitsuné America’, a brand new 6 track compilation featuring a clutch of hotly tipped, captivating stateside producers on the rise. 90’s House Music has always been a huge inspiration for Kitsuné Musique, influencing the club-culture roots the brand personifies till this day. Maison Kitsuné’s latest 2019 Fall /Winter collection paid a distinct homage to this era and Kitsuné Musique decided to dedicate the label’s annual American focused compilation as a celebration to this golden era.
Established in 2012, featuring a then-unknown Childish Gambino, the Kitsuné America Compilation series aims to take a fresh look at the North American music scene and the House Kitsuné America is one very special edition. The brief was simple, Kitsuné Musique asked promising North American artists and producers to cover a classic 90’s house track of their choice and the end product has been nothing short of spectacular.
Kitsune America features music from Mija, Baltra, Warner Case, Allen French. It’s due for release on the 24th January 2020 via Kitsuné Musique. Rising stars Allen French has covered Frankie Knuckles seminal track ‘The Whistle Song’ for our premiere today, adding his millennial touches to the compilation. House Kitsuné America, a timeless tribute to the compilations of the past, gathers a selection of 6 covers that fits perfectly on vinyl, celebrating the format loved and used by DJs at the time.
