ok. So the new Kitsune comp (#11, entitled the ‘indie-dance issue’) drops tomorrow (16th May). Kitsune have always put out some decent comps, although they did drop the ball a bit a few comps ago.
Anywho, one of the acts appearing on the new comp is none other than Is Tropical. I think Is Tropical are actually pretty exciting. Sure, they do the indie-dance stuff that Kitsune is FAMOUS for. But there’s a dark edge to it which i’m digging a heap. The track on the comp is called The Greeks which you can check out below as well as a bloody nice remix from Moonlight Matters.

If Is Tropical excite you as much as they excite me, then make sure you get your mits on their debut record when it drops next month (13th June). It’s gonna be called Native To.
ok ok. So the blog world used to be in love with everything French label Kitsune put out. Then the love dropped off a bit, as the Kitsune compilations dropped off a bit. But now, Kitsune are back.
The guys are releasing their 10th Kitsune Maison Comp, called The Firework Issue later on this month (It’s getting a digital release in a week and a bit – 15th Nov). It has a stellar tracklisting too. Is Tropical, Two Door Cinema Club, Clock Opera, Digitalism and Aussies Strange Talk and Flight Facilities all appear, so it should be pretty saweeeet.
The minimix is pretty good – not as great as some of their other minimixes they put out for their comps, but it still gives you a pretty good idea of what’s on there. There’s a part II of the minimix dropping next week too (can a minimix actually ‘drop’??!!), so look out for that one too.
Grab the 1st half MiniMix down below as well as checking out the vid, which is just an opportunity for Kitsune to show off their clothing range (although, it does come complete with hotness, so i ain’t complaining).
