The duo’s forthcoming EP is out June 18th via Endless Summer.
3 years after revamping his beloved Anoraak moniker, Marseilles-based DJ, producer, and musician Frédéric Rivière continues his ongoing affair with disco in new single, “Karma”. The single arrives with the announcement of his forthcoming EP, Karma, which sees him team up once again with French songstress Sarah Maison.
A longtime lover and avid listener of disco and house, Rivière opted to set aside his usual synth tool kit to deliver a mélange of sultry, soulful house in his 2020 EP, ‘Gang’. After a two-year hiatus, Rivière returned to the release radar with a new, redefined sound. Gang came as a surprise to staunch Anoraak loyalists and fans, as it saw him swap his familiar synth tool kit for a fresh, new twist on modern disco. The EP also marked the beginning of a new creative partnership between him and French-Moroccan singer/songwriter Sarah Maison, who took him to uncharted territory with her use of French lyricism.
Following the release, Rivière and Maison decided it would only be right to continue creating dreamy, disco-infused magic together. “We had a lot of fun doing ‘Gang’,” Rivière states, “we wanted to offer a sort of sequel.” The rest unfolded naturally. “‘Karma’ was done just as easily. I composed some instrumentals, sent them to [Sarah] and gave her a carte blanche on the lyrics.”
The titular lead single delivers a slice of 70s inspired disco fused with a modern pop/lounge twinge. Borrowing influences from pop, disco, house, and indie, the track is a perfect representation of the Anoraak brand: versatile, creative, and timeless.
