Miss Kittin & The Hacker release ‘Lost Tracks Vol. 2’ on Josh Cheon’s Dark Entries label on 25th June. We’ve got the exclusive premiere of ‘Love On 26’ from it below.
Miss Kittin & The Hacker, real names Michel Amato and Caroline Hervé, worked on a number of EPs together in the late ‘90s that landed on DJ Hell’s International DJ Gigolo label.
Their long-revered electro sound is influenced by 1980s synthpop and post-punk bands like Fad Gadget, D.A.F., Liaisons Dangereuses and Yazoo.
‘Lost Tracks Vol. 2’ contains four previously unreleased demos recorded between 1997 and 1999.
Speaking about the track, Hervé told DJ Mag, “It’s a track we were not really satisfied with in the beginning. I had to sing straight live, as you can hear.
“The lyrics were about a joke we often said to each other: it’s not in the music business we will find a family."
All the tracks on the release have been transferred from the original DAT tapes and remastered for vinyl.
Listen to the exclusive premiere of ‘Love On 26’ below, out on ‘Lost Tracks Vol. 2’ via Dark Entries on 25th June.
