The Hacker, best known for his work with chanteuse-extraordinaire and fellow Swiss resident Miss Kittin, is coming to the States for a mini DJ tour. Miss Kittin & The Hacker's critically acclaimed First Album released this past year on Emperor Norton, has been revered as a classic "new electro" album in every one of the numerous stories on the scene. Vice Magazine even called Miss Kittin and The Hacker's single "Frank Sinatra," "the best dance track ever!"
The Hacker's music is the result of several influences, from electro to classic Detroit techno, as well as more experimental stuff like Christian Vogel and Neil Landstrumm. Early '80s New Wave and electronic disco (Giorgio Moroder style) make appearances, as well. "It was music you can dance to and listen to. Plus it was a bit sad and melancholic. That's what I like," says The Hacker.
