The Queen of Electroclash, Kittin has been leading the way since the early 90s. Releasing her first EP in 1995, ‘Champagne’ with The Hacker, her longtime and frequent collaborator, the release featured hit singles ‘Frank Sinatra’ and ‘1982’ which led to her achieving international success. Born in Grenoble, France, Kittin’s releases are fiery, sassy and unique, filled with witty and tongue-in-cheek punchlines and her sound is an enigmatic blend of gritty new wave and 90s techno. Whilst she was coming through, the scene was very much a boys club, with the French scene adding ‘Miss’ to artist’s names on the bills and Kittin was referred to as ‘the boys’ for being the first and last on the dancefloor. Instead of pushing her out of the scene, this motivated Kittin even more to explore new boundaries with her productions, becoming a perfectionist. And it’s this punk attitude that resonates through her releases and with me. Now reclaiming her name, Kittin will be releasing her new album ‘Cosmos’ on the 2nd November via Dark Entries.
