January finally sees the release of Kitsuné DJs extraordinaire JBAG’s début artist single.
After numerous awesome reMixes and two essential mix albums (‘Kitsuné BoomBox’ and ‘Kituné X Ponystep’) the duo of Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino have teamed up with ex-Ping Pong Bitches frontwoman Louise Prey on ‘X-Ray Sex’.
First heard on the Kitsuné X Ponystep’ compilation, ‘X-ray Sex’ is a pretty stunning début, these two have cranked out some amazing reMixes and edits in the past few years and you can see how things were heading in this direction. Equal parts ElectroPop and House with a nice 80’s flavour (particularly in the bassline), it’s defiantly got a London vibe to it as well. For something a little heavier check the Jolie Cherie reMix which sounds like a mash-up between early 90’s House and some killer Electro bass!
Blah, blah, blah, Kitsuné Music releasing the tenth instalment of their Maison series, titled ‘The Fireworks Issue’. Yadda, yadda, yadda, JBAG put together a minimix to showcase the album…

As usual London’s Kitsuné in-house DJ team JBAG have put together a minimix to showcase the album, this time in two parts. Here’s the first:
Last time Kitsuné Music collaborated with one of Richard Mortimer projects on a CD the end result was ‘Kitsuné/BoomBox’. Mixed by, both Kitsuné resident and resident at Mortimer’s legendary BoomBox club, Jerry Bouthier, the album brought together Electro-house and underground ElectroPop to amazingly capture the summer of 2007 for anyone listening to that type of music or going to those types of clubs. it was easily the soundtrack to the year.
This summer Kitsuné are partnering up with Mortimer’s current business, the London based Fashion/Music/Culture webzine PonyStep, to produce another compilation. Mixed, once more, by one half of JBAG, Bouthier, the track list is already impressive. Featuring the likes of Róisín Murphy, Bag Raiders, Adamski, Lindstrøm, Lo-Fi-Fnk, David E Sugar and Das Pop to name a few. BeatauCue’s reMix of Florrie’s ‘911’ makes an appearance in the form of a JBAG edit. As does Two Door Cinema Club’s previous single ‘I Can Talk’ as reMixed by French Horn Rebellion. With a line up like that, and Jerry Bouthier’s prowess at putting together an awesome electronic Pop mix this album should really be something special!
Kitsuné Music are dropping the 9th Maison compilation in April. ‘The Petit Bateau Edition Or The Cotton Issue’ features a great line up of acts, many of which we have been championing here at electronic rumors.
