The French duo of Miss Kittin and the Hacker first got together in back in 2001 for the album First Album and turned out the lewd, but catchy “Frank Sinatra”. I won’t recount those lyrics here, but you can listen on Lala.com. Our very own Terry Sawyer said of the duo, “they created decadent club music for people too arch and smart for typical white label fare.”


They haven’t worked together since then and Miss Kittin went on to record I Com, while the Hacker went off on his own as a DJ and remixer working with the likes of Air and Laurent Garnier. The two began writing together again back in 2006 and hit the stage in 2007. Now they are releasing their first full-length since 2001 on May 19th with TWO. They’re a bit less outrageous this go-around and a tad more sophisticated to boot. Sample their new approach here with the online premiere of “Electronic City”.
