DescriptionA 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, John Foxx & The Maths, and with two further edits from Miss Kittin herself. Building on the disco-not-disco, industrial and new wave influences of Houle's 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 Houle's signature style and Kittin's deadpan vocal talent. In sharp contrast, track 'Black Star' presents an equally driven, yet slightly more ambient affair: its haunting synth lines, detuned claps and granular vocals a poignant reminder of the pair's production abilities both on and off the dancefloor. 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. Dubfire furthers the main room potential of the EP's title track, with John Foxx & The Maths bringing the male vocal line to the forefront, turning the track into a roaring techno/electro-pop live hybrid. With 'Where is Kittin?' also acting as a succinct accompaniment to Miss Kittin's double album 'Calling from the Stars', out on 22nd of April via wSphere/Wagram, Kittin appropriately rounds off the package with a further two of her own edits, a pair of eloquently stripped-down digitally exclusive versions of the EP's two title tracks.
