The Future is Caillet

In a bold move, Chloe Caillet has recently launched into independent music entrepreneurship with the debut of her label, SMILE Records, coinciding with the release of her latest single “12 Inch Acid”. The track, a collaborative effort between Caillet and Melbourne-based artist Luke Alessi, is an energetic fusion of thumping kicks and classic 303 acid house synths, intentionally crafted to inspire the dance floor. 

Speaking on the release, Caillet expressed her intent to create a club-centric record, infused with nostalgic elements recollecting the ’90s dance scene. SMILE Records’ beginnings follows Caillet’s recent introduction of her LGBTQ+ SMILE club night concept in Paris, expanding her to the United States with upcoming events scheduled in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami throughout March. Caillet will also be bringing the SMILE experience to Europe, with dates booked at Paris’ Badaboum on March 29th, Village Underground in London on April 13th, and Barcelona’s Nitsa on May 10th.
