Miss Kittin & The Hacker are the electro duo of Caroline Hervé and Michel Amato from Grenoble, France. The pair met during the early 90s at a rave and soon after bought turntables and began DJing. In 1996, they started writing music heavily influenced by 1980s synthpop and post-punk bands, as well as Italo Disco. Lost Tracks Vol. 2′ contains 4 previously unreleased demos recorded between 1997 and 1999. The duo fused 80’s European New Wave/Italo Disco with 90’s Detroit Electro, by utilizing verse-chorus structures, they playfully shook up the loop based hard techno and electro that was popular at the time. The songs are direct, spontaneous, seemingly improvised in places. Miss Kittin sings about falling in love in the new millennium, snuff movies and controlling the unknown trip to death, all in her cheekily derisive French accent.
Death in Vegas return with the single ‘Honey’, its second collaboration with Sasha Grey. ‘Honey’ is a slow, seductive serenade, with an organic, psychedelic tone: dreamy and dripping with intensity. The B -side features ‘Witchdance Dub’, Richard Fearless’ long-held remix Of ‘Witchdance’ Off Trans-love Energies, featuring the haunting vocals of Katie Stelmanis from Austra. This track is effortless, minimal dance music imbued with Fearless’ unique production sound.
