Crosstown Rebels will release the up-and-coming producer's first album in March.
Though Kurtel has already toured internationally with Wolf + Lamb and Crosstown Rebels, electronic music is only her most recent endeavor. The Turkish-born artist has a long history in academia and visual art, and specializes in light sculptures; her pieces have appeared at Burning Man and on the Wolf + Lamb Experience tour, and one has hung over the Marcy Hotel's dance floor for years. Her music career began when she moved to New York in the early '00s. After becoming friends with Zev and Gadi Mizrahi, she move into the Marcy Hotel and started making tracks.
Kurtel has only put out two records so far: Whisper EP on Wolf + Lamb and Yeah on Crosstown Rebels. Aside from an album version of "Yeah," Music Watching Over Me features all previously unreleased tracks, more than doubling the size of Kurtel's catalog to date.
01. Music Watching Over Me
03. My Ass
04. Best Of
05. The L Word
09. One Chance at Happiness
10. My Heart
11. Make Me Feel
12. Yeah (album version)
Crosstown Rebels will release Music Watching Over Me on March 14th, 2011.
