Customer Review

on 2 September 2002
As good a moniker as any for Miss Kittin & The Hacker's latest entry in to the modern electronic scene. The sound of the beachboys after too long in the sun and a lot of white cocktails, this latest european patnership have a truly sleazy, funky take on synth pop that pumps along on bouncy synth bass lines and hard 4/4 drums. Miss Kittin's vocals are somewhat harder than The Hacker's production to initially absorb. Her post-punk bored european model vocals can sound almost tacky when you first hear them. What you come to realise after a few tracks is that is how they are supposed to sound... they twist your preception of The Hacker's production in such a way as to a whole new identity, a unique brand of electronica that has major roots in the 80's charts (soft cell, duran duran) as well as having a club sound, with more than a hint of modern house & sometimes techno beats. Kittin's vocals can actually make The Hacker's music stand out, such the story of Kittin's girlfriend on the funky 'Stripper' - one of The Hacker's best productions & also Kittin's best vocals on the album.
If you like the sound of this: uptempo, sylised, complex, futuristic, playful (with a melancholy edge) & highly electronic, then you'd should take a look at this lp.
