If you still haven't heard of Parisian-born, Miami-based studio producer Uriel "Frenchie" Kadouch, it's only a matter of time. His A-list accolades speak for themselves. By his early 20s he was already making beats for the likes of R&B stars Robin Thicke, Ashanti, and Cassie while also collaborating with hip-hop heavyweight Marcus Vest (AKA 7 Aurelius or Channel 7) of Murder Inc. fame.
Teaming up with Vest, Kadouch would produce original material for MTV's hit show Making the Band 4 and discovered burgeoning young talent Jason Derülo, helping to catapult his Billboard-topping career with hits like 2009's "Watcha Say."
Kadouch has since staked his place as one of the most in-demand young producers in the industry, laying his Midas touch on a number of upcoming releases by big stars, including Melanie Fiona, Kelly Clarkson, and Nelly, for whom he co-produced the soon-to-be hit "GO" on comeback album, 5.0.
Add his work on the bestselling album Echo by British R&B sensation Leona Lewis to this auspicious list of credits and there's no question the young prodigy is keen on dominating the transatlantic airwaves. Download the Kadouch-produced R&B hit "Can't Breathe" by Leona Lewis, along with an exclusive soon-to-be-released dance remix by Kadouch and Michael Malih.
