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.

But making his return to the original production front for his second shot at vocal Dance supremacy for 2012 with ‘Leave Me Now’, Canitrot follows up the recent release of ‘Turn Off The Light‘ as part of the Reepublic project with a vocal peak-time track that rises and falls in all the right places.

Having all five successfully ridden the vast explosion of global dance music, a collaborative effort from Gregori Klosman, Tristan Garner, Antoine Clamaran, Michael Canitrot and Sebastien Benett was always going to be a sizeable endeavour. In hopes of disproving the saying that too many chefs spoils the broth, the French fivesome join forces for an original track called ‘Turn Off The Light’ under the guise of their new Reepublic moniker. Rife with uplifting chord progressions and suspenseful builds of energy at hand, the Frenchmen flex their instrumental muscles to match that of a radio-friendly vocal line courtesy of NYC singer T-Elle.

Having all five successfully ridden the vast explosion of global dance music, the coming together of Gregori Klosman, Tristan Garner, Antoine Clamaran, Michael Canitrot and Sebastien Benett was always going to be a sizeable endeavour.

But with uplifting chord progressions and suspenseful builds of energy at hand, the Frenchmen flex their instrumental muscles to match that of the radio-friendly vocals courtesy of NYC singer T-Elle.

Out November 19th.

Although it may not feature the newest of tracks, the 3rd episode of Axel Bauer and Lanford’s newly launched mixtape series is a one hour showcase of a somewhat diverse picks and well-oiled transitions.

With tracks such as the Dirty South edit of ‘Rise‘, Moguai’s ‘Mpire‘ and Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Greyhound‘, the Canitrot mix may outshine the original mix as far as new tracks are concerned but together they make up a well thought-out contrast of the best of new and old.

Track wise, it features the headlining single from Moguai’s recently released album, entitled ‘Mpire‘, the still chart-topping Axwell mix of ‘In My Mind‘ as well as Dirty South, Thomas Gold and Kate Elsworth’s follow-up to ‘Alive’, titled ‘Eyes Wide Open‘ among many others.

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.

Since the inception of the grooves of his debut single in 2008, Michaël Canitrot has firmly grown into a pioneer and household name for anything summerish. What started off with a solid sounds of traditional house music has come to develop into the feel-good vibes of sing-along Summer concoctions. Coming off the release of You And I in mid 2010, followed by this year’s, hands down, amazing Summer contender that is When You Got Love, also featuring the voice of Ron Carroll, the Frenchman comes out with a new, blinding single. Made up by an epitome of sounds strongly influenced by the French house genre, growling baselines, stomping kicks and plump complementary tiers, Blue Collision instantly resembles the colour of blue and consists of systematically structured instrumentals to successfully make up an enchanting climax, which, in conjuction with a soothing and emotional interlude, makes up Canitrot’s fourth appearance under his own Aime Music label.
