“Kartell has no doubt made a name for himself in the house scene and beyond”
“Kartell creates something full of personality and reminds us why the Parisian producer and spearhead of young label Roche Musique is one to maintain an eye on”
‘All I Need’ is the first single to be released from Kartell’s upcoming EP ‘Tender Games’. Out May 11, ‘All I Need’ (featuring J-Rican) incorporate the light-mood R&B, house tones and Nu-Disco that have become his signature and act as the perfect teaser. Having already garnered support from tastemakers BBC Music, Ear Milk, Indie Shuffle and Hunger TV, Kartell has left a lasting impression in his native France and across the world.
Opening with a serious nod towards house and chillwave, Tender Games is delicate and upbeat from the word go. The three track B-side is more dancefloor focussed but maintains the expert sensibility that Kartell is famed for.
Kartell is an iconic figure and spearhead of French label, Roche Musique (Darius, FKJ, Cherokee, Zimmer, Cézaire…). Supported and acknowledged by producers such as Kaytranada, The Magician, Bondax or Kastle, Kartell has made a name for himself as a young and gifted house producer with two of his most famous collaborations (Karma Kid/Jabberwocky) receiving over one million views.
Following the success of Riviera in 2012 and Sapphire in 2013, ‘Tender Games’ is highly anticipated and will reaffirm the way Kartell is already viewed within the industry: A French house music pioneer.
