House music is thriving in France once again, with clubs popping up all over the nation and a new generation of artists coming through to spread the French house feeling around the world. One of 2013's most exciting breakthrough French artists is Mr KS (AKA Jean-Pierre Baroni), a producer and DJ from the south of France who announced his arrival on the world stage with his debut EP on ( djebali ) presents.

As a youngster Mr KS was inspired by that timeless Chicago sound, from rough ghetto house through to the deeper sounds that flowed out of the house mecca. Names like DJ Deeon and Chez Damier were reponsible for turning him on to house production in those early stages. Years later it was to be artists from his home nation who kept that fire burning for house music; Apollonia, Djebali, Point G – Frenchies who represent only the very best in contemporary house music.

Having started making music in 2006, Jean-Pierre's big break came with the label owned by one of Paris' most exciting talents, Djebali. Mr KS sent some demos to Djebali and before he knew it, his fellow countryman was playing them. What happened next was explained by Djebali in an interview with The Independent newspaper in the UK, "Every time I was playing Mr KS' tracks, they were burning the clubs – so I had to release them and that's why I started this project", he said of the tracks and his new ( djebali ) presents label.

The vinyl-only release went straight to No.1 on with days of its release, picking up plaudits from far and wide and sparking interest in the Frenchman from labels in the UK and across Europe. The deep, dancefloor-orientated cuts had done their work both in the clubs and in the charts – one of the singles even made it onto Mixmag's top 100 tunes of 2013 chart, quite an achievement for a debut release.

2014 looks to be a continuation of Mr KS' upward trajectory, joining the booking roster at the newly formed Just Jack agency and with an EP pencilled in for release on the Bristol outfit's label and another with seminal UK label, Tsuba.

Six years of hard work have paid off and now Mr KS is more inspired and motivated than ever, working on new music constantly and gearing up for a new year that is bound to eclipse an amazing 2013.

That's Right, baby!
