Already acclaimed for its fundamental passion for art and fashion, only Paris could have conjured the driving unity of creative clubbing and stimulating club cuts that we now associate with prolific Parisian Michael Canitrot. As the driving force behind clubbing brand ‘So, Happy In Paris?’ , his open-minded approach has seen him don his mixing skills to events for the Cannes Film Festival and D&G while pushing a steady output of solid club offerings to the world alongside the likes of Ron Carroll and Polina.
In an energetic fusion of genres, profound keys and a beefy drop of distorted lower-end hooks assert the wondering Frenchman’s diverse scope of modern Dance, presenting a powerful peak time banger that rises and falls in all the right places. Despite the fact that people don’t seem to deem him a pioneer of eccentric productions, Canitrot’s heavy-handed banger warrants the significant influx of attention and beckons further turns of industrious intellect on the rising French connoisseur of inventive global clubbing.
White Escape is out now via his own Aime Music label.
