Kitsuné expands Co-op relationships into France

By | Published on Thursday 14 April 2011


Kitsune have extended their relationship with Universal’s Co-operative Music which will see the uber-cool French indie label utilising Co-op’s new partnership with New York-based Downtown records Stateside.

This means Kitsune releases, including the upcoming debut from Is Tropical and second long player from French band Housse de Racket, will be distributed in the US via Co-op via Downtown.

Music Week quote Kitsune co-founder Gildas Loaec as saying of his label’s existing relationship with Co-operative Music: “The success that Two Door Cinema Club are experiencing now with nearly 200,000 sales just in Europe is the perfect example that we made the good choice. This is why extending this label deal to the United States and teaming up with Downtown on top was a logical step”.
