has pioneered electroclash, that grimy, irreverent collision of new wave and ‘90s techno. Singles “1982” and “Frank Sinatra” with The Hacker cemented her as an international DJ, both tracks heralded as anthems for the underground electroclash scene. Further notable collaborations run the gamut, including “Rippin’ Kittin’” with Golden Boy and “Silver Screen (Shower Scene)” with Felix Da Housecat. Through a relentless work ethic and a crystal pure love of music for music’s sake, Kittin, birth name Caroline Hervé, has solidified herself as a global luminary in the electronic community.

First Album, her debut full-length with The Hacker released in 2001, sold over 50,000 copies worldwide. The staggering popularity of “1982” and “Frank Sinatra” launched her international DJ career with “Frank Sinatra” even licensed for PARTY MONSTER, a 2003 feature film starring Macaulay Culkin. Between the years 2001 and 2006 she lived in Berlin and DJed incessantly — these would be some of the busiest years for international DJs, and Berlin was the epicenter. In 2004 she released her debut solo album, I Com, where she contained multitudes in emotional depth, most noticeably on “Requiem For A Hit” and “Professional Distortion,” mixing punk with techno with Chicago House and was her flirtation with Goth culture. Known for her prolific nature, she released another solo album in 2008 entitled Batbox while based in Paris. Only a year later would she release a second album with The Hacker, this one aptly called Two. Then in 2013 she released her third solo album, Calling from the Stars, with Resident Advisor naming it her “most accomplished solo release to date.”
