New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
"Cherokee is a French House act that kick-started in 2011, and are well known for their clear and distinct sound that is easily recognizable and makes them stand apart from other French House producers."
"Despite the Native American origins of the name, within twenty seconds, or, as soon as the smooth synths meet the snaps/drums, you'll realize that this is French electro-disco as good as it gets."
Recontextualizing the golden age of house music, Dorian M. AKA Cherokee is at the forefront of the latest French Touch wave. Having toured worldwide, remixed the likes of Amerie, Mika, Daft Punk, and gaining attention from key tastemakers like EARMILK, CHEROKEE has made tremendous waves in the music scene. Now CHEROKEE presents his next instalment - 'Teenage Fantasy.' As a prominent artist in the Roche Musique roster, home to the likes of Darius, FKJ and Kartell, CHEROKEE is offering up the aforementioned EP via the fresh, Paris-based imprint.
Departing as a duo and continuing as a one-man act, Cherokee is writing music with a heritage far beyond its years. With the 'American Spirit
EP' and hit-single 'Don't Matter' tracking thousands of summer-romances, the young yet set-in-stone artist is your coolest friend's favourite act.
Cherokee draws influence from artists like Daft Punk, Sébastien Tellier and the Motor City Drum Ensemble. His sound has stretched far and wide, performing at venues like Wanderlust, Social Club (Paris) & Output (Brooklyn) and has shared the stage with big names like Brodinski, Moon Boots, Digitalism, Dusky, to name a few. With the thousands of fans, the millions upon millions of plays and a new EP on the way, we're entering the next chapter in the emblematic story that is French Touch, with Cherokee as it's leading actor.
'Teenage Fantasy' features the soulful, delicate vocals of Gibbz and Cherokee's signature smooth synths and punchy drums. A rich piano melody kicks in pumping the beat full of life and creating a bouncy, dancefloor atmosphere. 'Teenage Fantasy' is colourful, "bubbly" and oozes the vibrant, catchy grooves that Roche Musique has become known for.
