Sunday 28 June... Exclusive LIVE set with Miss Kittin & The Hacker

The French music scene has found its, unexpected, second wind with this French disco duo. They´re back with a new on-stage style, leaving behind electro-clash, unmasking a perfectly accessible, more elegant, more mature and more distinct - yet, still pop - side.

Caroline Hervé (a.k.a. Miss Kittin) and Michel Amato (a.k.a. The Hacker) met in Grenoble during the early 90s at a rave. For many people of their generation, techno is a musical and cultural slap in the face. The two friends both buy decks and become DJs. Their notoriety, essentially on a national scale, grows little by little. In 1996, the French label, Tekmics, asked Miss Kittin to write a track for a compilation. She turned to The Hacker for help (he is already producing tracks under the XMF project and techno themes on his own). The Miss Kittin & The Hacker duo sees the light of day. Their first track is called "Gratin Dauphinois". Others are soon to follow…

At the end of the summer of 2002, electroclash reaches its peak. Miss Kittin & The Hacker are at their summit. It's here that they decide to call it a day. "We were knackered, we needed to take a break, take time out for other projects and not tie ourselves down to one musical style", admits The Hacker. Many spoke of a split, not true. "We never separated, we just took a long break" grins Miss Kittin.

2007 and they´re back... with disco theme “Hometown” and “Dimanche” a darker minimal techno sounds influenced by the 1990s raves.

New for 2008 and 2009 "revisited" and new tunes ("Belgium", "PPPO" or the superb cover of Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds")... An initial and tempting appetiser to their new album and forthcoming tour that will, undoubtedly, be one of THE great electronic music events of 2009.
See them LIVE at Space Ibiza... 28 June at We Love!

The next appointment with Miss Kittin, on August 23 at The Terrace sharing booth with Steve Lawler, Paul Woolford, Alex Smol (live) and Alex Wolfenden.
