Today we came with the collaboration between Items & Things label boss Marc Houle and Grenoble born techno/electro legend Miss Kittin, IT022 sees the release of Where is Kittin?: a six track EP featuring two original tracks, as well as remixes from Dubfire and John Foxx & The Maths, and with two further edits from Miss Kittin herself. A quality release which will be released on 24th May in vinyl and digital format.
Building on the disco-not-disco, industrial and new wave influences of Houleʼs recent Items & Things long-player Undercover, the two originals on Where is Kittin? demonstrate the wide-ranging influences and potent pairing of the production duo: the title track a jagged hybrid of Houleʼs signature style and Kittinʼs deadpan vocal talent.
High profile remix duties come from SCI+TEC techno mastermind Dubfire, as well as John Foxx & The Maths: a recently formed musical project featuring electronic music pioneers John Foxx and modular synth experimentalist Benge. Now can we know how sound like the six cuts through the preview of EP’s launch.
Where is Kittin? Preview
Dubfire furthers the main room potential of the EPʼs title track with his dark vision of techno, and John Foxx & The Maths bringing the male vocal line and synths to the forefront, turning the track into a roaring techno/electro-pop live hybrid. Also we can find cuts aimed directly at the dance floor as Black Star.
With these godparents and careful production, Where is Kittin? is destined to become one of the EPs of the season.
