LABEL OWNED BY FORMER DAFT PUNK MANAGER, GILDAS LOAËC, AND ARCHITECT MASAYA KUROKI COLLIDES NEW TALENT WITH FASHION AT #AFTERWORK
New York, NY – October 19th – New York Fashion Week may be over but that doesn’t mean the parties need to stop. Kitsuné Musique – the boutique French record label and fashion brand – kicked off their Fall #Afterwork series last night at Spring Place in downtown Manhattan (where Jeremy Scott paid similar music x fashion homage at NYFW in September). Always one for championing new talent, #Afterwork showcased four new talents in hip hop last night including Milwaukee’s own IssDARR (“Sugar,” “Too Bad”) and rising Maryland rapper Innanet James who rose to prominence with his summer hit “Summer” off his debut EP Quebec Place earlier this year. Joining the two MCs were DJs Austin Mills and Thelonious Martin. Spring Place was teeming with crowds from both worlds wanting to blow off some steam after a long day’s work.
The label founded by Gildas Loaëc, former manager of Daft Punk and architect Masaya Kuroki are here to innovate the music industry and the way we find and consume music. Alongside music nights like #Afterwork, Kitsune’s newest program – Hot Stream – is here to flip the traditional music release model. Hot Stream is the premiere digital platform for Kitsuné Musique’s new releases – highlighting singles from rising talent across the globe, Hot Stream releases a new track every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of every month. With every Hot Stream release there is a new piece of art that is created by a visual artist to go along with the music. Today, there have been more than 230 newly released tracks and cover art. Combining music and visual arts, Kitsuné Hot Stream offers an unmatched experience. Hot Stream is available on Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Soundcloud and Youtube.
