I first saw French vocalist/producer/DJ, Miss Kittin, at Avalon Hollywood in early 2011 on a Saturday night, and it was her live vocals and impeccable taste that truly captivated my attention for her entire set. There’s a balance in Miss Kittin’s productions and performances that creates pure entertainment — largely due to her voice. Today, the single “Bassline” came out via wSphere Records as a precursor to her forthcoming album, and the first lady of Techno addresses her vocal process, explaining, “Even though I always tried to write smart lyrics, it’s good sometimes to stay simple. You might call this a pop song with dumb lyrics, but it allows me to focus on complex vocal effects to make it strong, rather than counting on the words.” Listen to the preview below and find out what she’s talking about.
Kris Menace has a new album coming out entitled Features which includes collaborations with The Presets, Robert Owens, Simon Lord, The Glass and others. The first single off the album is the track “Hide” featuring the always fabulous Miss Kittin. “Hide” delivers what you would expect from these two electronic music legends – lush, pulsating beats and soaring, sultry vocals.
Dirtying up things on the remix end are PWNDTIAC whose driving electro remix is certain to thrash every dance floor it touches. With early buzz from Queen Annie Mac, this remix is already picking up some serious steam. Do not miss out on this one. The PWNDTIAC remix of “Hide” is out NOW via Compuphonic.
