House Kitsuné America
This compilation is a real tribute to the timeless compilation released in the '90s. It gathers covers of 5 classic house gems from that era, revisited by up-and-coming American artists and producers Mija, Firstworld, jarradcleofé, warner case and Allen French.
« Tasty » - Idris Elba
Mija - Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless) [Cover]
Originally performed by Crystal Waters, this song was reinterpreted by Mija being one of the first House songs she'd ever heard. Mija is capable of striking the balance between futuristic textures and immediate emotional states.
Allen French - The Whistle Song [Cover]
Originally performed by Frankie Knuckles, this song was picked by Allen French because he felt connected to the organic sounds of the flute, the whistle and the drums which he also uses a lot in his own music.
warner case - Can You Feel It? [Cover]
Originally performed by Mr. Fingers, this track was chosen by warner case because, to him, it led the way for electronic music and to show that music can be a lot more than a groove, but emotional and human.
Jarradcleofe - Needin' U [Cover]
Originally performed by David Morales, this song was revisited by jarradcleofé as per its timeless sound and classic dance track signature.
Firstworld - Groove Is In the Heart [Cover]
Originally performed by Deee-Lite, this song was picked by Firstworld because it's not fully a house track, and it's too weird (in a good way) to be a pop track.
