Iconic figure and spearhead of the trendy label Roche Musique (created in 2012 and house of FKJ, Darius, Zimmer, Dabeull…), Kartell knew how to stand out within a few months as revolutionary among the Parisian electronic scene.
Locating to Paris since few years, the artist continues to amaze through his distinguished musical maturity and elaborate creativity.
From Kartell’s debut release through Roche Musique, Riviera, to his most recent EP, Tender Games, Kartell continuously evolves in a musical universe made of House tones, colored by Nu-Disco and R’n’B accents, which have become his signature.
Coming off of his hundred dates in France, Europe, Asia and more significantly North and South America, the young producer has also become famous for his collaborations with artists such as Karma Kid and Lianne la Havas, whose remixes exceed one million views.
Surrounded by his friends and peers from Roche Musique and supported by acknowledged producers such as Kaytranada, Stwo and Bondax, Kartell proceeds to transform an audacious and innovative international music scene, widely contributing to the renewal of “French Touch” electronic music.
