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 began writing music heavily influenced by 80s synth and post-punk bands like Fad Gadget, DAF, Liaisons Dangeuresues, and Yazoo, as well as Italo Disco. Bored by the techno scene at the time, they set out out to lighten the serious tone and bring a campy sexiness to the dour musical landscape. Upon hearing their demos DJ Hell signed them to his Munich-based International DJ Gigolo label and released their first 2 EPs in 1998 and 1999. Their debut album ”First Album” was released in 2001.
“Lost Tracks Vol. 1” 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 acts like...

Following a solid year of releases kick started by Beatport #1 ‘Distance’, a collaboration with Innervisions boss Dixon, we’ve witnessed Guy Gerber’s RUMORS label go from strength to strength. In its debut year the label has already had guest appearances from Seth Troxler and Chaim, and now Guy himself is set to reveal ‘Rumors on the dance floor’ featuring Miss Kittin.
Set to be Miss Kittin’s debut appearance on the label and also marking the eighth RUMORS release, ‘Rumors on the dancefloor’ is a powerful embodiment of Guy’s innovative imprint. Divided into two parts, the release is built around a symbolic whisper and deep bass guitar riffs that follow a galatic-inspired house and techno framework – with part two a harder offering awash with Guy’s signature blend of melodic soundscapes and stylish beats.
Over on the white isle, RUMORS is also encompassing a hugely successful event...
New EP by Djedjotronic Feat. Miss Kittin
Digital EP (24 May) – www.beatport.com/release/where-is-kittin/1081846
A collaboration between Items & Things label boss Marc Houle and Grenoble born techno/electro legend Miss Kittin, IT022 sees the release of “Where is Kittin?” a six track EP featuring two original tracks, as well as remixes from Dubfire, John Foxx & the Maths, and two further edits from Miss Kittin herself.
Building on the disco-not-disco, industrial and new wave influences of Houleʼs recent Items & Things long-player “Undercover”, the two originals on “Where is Kittin?” demonstrate the wide-ranging influences and potent pairing of the production duo: the title track a jagged hybrid of Houleʼs signature style and Kittinʼs deadpan vocal talent. In sharp contrast, A2 track “Black Star” presents an equally driven, yet slightly more ambient affair: its haunting synth lines, detuned claps and granular vocals a poignant reminder of the pairʼs production...
