DJ MIss Kittin spinning the electro-clash

Carolyn Herve grew up in Grenoble, became a star in Geneva -- where she recorded the infamous "Frank Sinatra" (which I first heard on Danny Tenaglia's LONDON CD), "Happy Violentine," and "Stock Exchange Gal," and now lives and DJs in Berlin. The empress of electro-clash, a mix of electronica and industrial genres, her music is trippy, ironic, socially conscious, feminist, delicate, sexy, dreamy, scatological, and just plain girly. As imaginative and witty as any club DJ I know, she may still have her best work ahead of her, though the CD "" matches just about anything made by anyone, these past three years. (I especially like her cover version of Indochine's classic "3eme sexe.")

NOTE: a new Miss Kittin 2-CD set, BUGGED OUT BY MISS KITTIN, is now available.
