Time Travell the easy way, just follow the beat and dive into Nostalgia. The early 80‘s are present just like Vicious Pink Phenomena (Vicious Pink later on) or Ensemble Pittoresque never went away. As Hommage The Hacker (Michel Amato) plays parts of Memorabila (Soft Cell) and I Feel Love (D. Summer / G. Moroder) but that`s about it with wellknown reference points.
Cheap sounding Drumboxes, Syndrum effects, Synthetics that don’t pretend to be anything else but a Synthesizer, minimal Sequencer lines and the deadpan vocals of Caroline Herve make up a charming difference to all the Greatest Hits stuff everyone gets confronted with too often from that period.
The irony in titles and lyrics like „1982“ , „Frank Sinatra“ or „DJ Song“ makes these french duo even more likable that took a sidestep from current music to follow their obsessions.
The result is a sleazy New Wave Disco Tech Noir Album, danceable, enjoyable and if you get the drift - nearly hypnotizing.

My knowledge about electro is exceeded only by my non existent infatuation with synchronised swimming. Regardless, this album kicks major ass. Simple, linear beats, determined to get the feet tapping and the head nodding, with simple yet catchy melodies, electrocuted sequences and some throwback to the old school sound effects. The general groove is solidly kept throughout, and the tracks all move in a similar direction, so if you join the ride on time, the electroclash cloud will soon encircle you and chances are it won't let go until the running time is over.
Miss Kittin's vocals hit it right on. Her lyrics are pointless, going and aiming nowhere, but who cares when it is so much fun? I seriously doubt she delivers a latent revolutionary message, but I could care less when I get so many kicks out of her voice, which ranges from slow and droning robotized on Slow Track to fast and don't give a damn about anybody on the amazing Stripper and Frank Sinatra. She actually sounds cool by saying nothing, and maintains this attitude of a wacked out chick who will crush your nuts by stepping on them with high heel leather boots. Delicious.
Just check this out:
"Every night with my star friends,
we eat caviar and drink champagne,
sniffing in the VIP area
we talk about Frank Sinatra..
You know Frank Sinatra?
He's dead! HAHAHAHAHA! Dead."
I love it. Electronic music which puts a large smile on my face despite the fact my expectations were below sea level. Furthermore, I actually listened through the entire CD twice and found no feeble moments, which is a rare feat I am afraid. Great job, you two!

Miss Kittin and the Hacker have got some great techno beats. Check out their first album on Gigolo Records and you wont be disapointed! It is so fun to dance to, it is really a great techno/dance album. Also, check out other Emperor Norton artists such as Ladytron and Felix De Housecat.

Check out the debut album from International Deejay Gigolo's most eligible young artistes - France's first and foremost electro pop ass kickers Miss Kittin and The Hacker. Minimal pin prick bleeps, new Deutsch meets old Detroit techno production effortlessly sexy Germanic vocals and dizzy seretonin soaked synth wooshes. If thoughts of strippers, synthesisers, nurses and rubber turn you on then look no further, it's all here...
