Michael Canitrot is currently riding high on a wave of success that has seen him propelled to the higher echelons of dance music's elite. As a DJ he's regularly touring in Asia, South America and Europe. His own productions are championed by the planet's finest house music aficionados and his longstanding 'So Happy In Paris' club nights have taken over the world's finest venues. On top of this he is also recognized for his musical collaboration with the Cannes Film Festival, Chanel, Dior … or to be the one who played on top of the Eiffel tower, in Front of the Louvre Museum or at the renowned Olympia theatre and turn it into a party venue for one night only alsongside international DJ’s and singers.
Surprising people and doing events in unexpected and historical places have always been something important.
With DJ skills honed, the next step was production. Michael had a urge to make tunes for pivotal moments in his sets, and using his experience of what sends a dancefloor crazy, started to make some epic house tracks. The last years has seen the release of 'Chain Reaction', 'Desire', 'You & I', 'Leave Me Now', and 'When You Got Love' (featuring the vocal talents of longstanding house music favourite Ron Carroll).
Michael also mixed Defected's 'Playboy Session', joining the likes of Bob Sinclar, Dimitri from Paris, Tensnake, Masters at Work and many other world class DJs who have been given the honour to mix a Defected compilation. It won't be the first mix CD he has had released – there have already been two 'So Happy In Paris' compilations, both receiving critical acclaim and commercial success.
At the moment Michael Canitrot is touring the world he is also spending his time in the studio, preparing his biggest musical project to date.
