Cherokee is a French electronic duo formed by French
House DJs Darius and Hana Yori Kichou Na. Their distinctive
sound ingenuously mixes funky beats and smooth rhythms to
reinvent the music of the French electronic music scene of the
late nineties.
Created in 2011, the duo rapidly appears as one of the
prominent forerunners of the French House renaissance with
their first singles Onset, Sable Doux and Mambo Jet. Cherokee
jointly enters the prestigious family of Shiny Disco Club
Records and release their first label-produced single Take Care
of You. The single is widely praised and the beautiful clip
directed by Achangeinanchor effectively captures the essence
of the French House movement.
The duo recently gained global attention with their
ambitious remix of Daft Punk’s Something About Us which was
widly applauded and collected more than fourty thousand plays
in the first few days with a total of a hundred and fifty
thousand today. Cherokee have played in more than fifteen
venues including reknown clubs such as the Social Club (Paris),
Paard van Troje (The Hague) or Velvet Speakeasy (Montreal).
They are currently working on their first EP American
Spirit to be released this summer.
Kartell is a young French House DJ and one of the first
to stand out in the current return of the French House
scene. He is also the first artist to release an EP on Shiny
Disco Club Records after their trendsetting compilation
Millenium Disco Volume 1.
The Fresh Memories EP in 2011 launches Kartell as a
unique artist with a recognizable touch whether it be
through his funky sounds or strong basslines. Kartell
subsequently reaches popular fame with his hit Pantera with
more than two hundred thousand plays. The song is eagerly
awaited by fans at each venue.
Kartell has played more than fourty gigs and often
appears at the Social Club (Paris) as well as several events at
international clubs: Mephisto (Hanover), Buffet Club
(Poland), Cargo (London) or Velvet Speakeasy (Montreal).
Kartell recently released succesful remixes of current
hits You Are My High (Demon) and Do You Believe
(Poolside). His new EP Riviera will be released this summer.
