Cherokee releases the EP “Californism”.
Dorian Miche, also known as ‘Cherokee’, is a French-Luxembourgish record producer and DJ currently based in Los Angeles. As a music producer, Cherokee lies at the forefront of a new intersection of funk and feel-good House. Having such a profound influence in the Parisian electronic scene with his eclectic and versatile style, Cherokee’s music has soared across the continents, leaving an imprint in the hearts of millions of fans who gather to be a part of his ‘endless summer’ vibe.
Cherokee is said to be an artistic “dreamer” – always working towards those nostalgic summer tracks filled with groovy melodies and disco-wave elements, leaving us dancing into the sunrise. Part of his discography, including songs such as “Teenage Fantasy”, “Take Care of You”, and “Don’t Matter,” can be described as sophisticated, elegant, and catchy, therefore have gathered millions of plays across several music platforms. He is able to pull inspiration for these productions from the sunny skies and hills down the waves of coastal California.
Not only has Cherokee established himself as a music producer, but also an iconic DJ having an extraordinary ability to unify crowds of many different vacancies; from exclusive rooftop parties, underground night clubs, to high-acclaimed festivals across the globe. As a DJ, he is known for his selectively curated tracks and his very own remixes (Daft Punk, Amerie, John Mayer, etc.) blending sensual beats and beautifully crafted melodies. Throughout his time as a touring artist spanning from Seoul to Los Angeles, Mexico City and back to Paris, he was able to collect inspiration from different landscapes and even cultures which have had much influence on his upcoming work as well.
“So Good” is the second track off Cherokee’s new EP “Californism” released on June 21st. Cherokee is teaming up again with Parisian vocalist and producer Goto, previously featured on “End Of Summer” and “How I Feel”, to provide another joyful and powerful piece of music. The song blends in subtle elements of disco and funk to a dynamic ensemble of electronic synths, arpeggios and beats. Goto’s vocals & lyrics add a nice pop side to the whole record while the funky and unique vocoder throughout the track gives an extra twist to the chorus.
Once again, Cherokee is able to show his ability to compose and produce original music while collaborating with some of today’s electro-indie artists.
