The Hacker – The Next Step Of New Wave

Michel Amato aka The Hacker is principally known outside of his native France for The First Album, created with long-term collaborator (and current electroclash superdarling) Miss Kittin.

Amato’s solo releases have always recalled early-’80s electro, and his selection here shows the extent to which that sound has mutated with 19 pristine drum-driven tracks, courtesy of amphetamine robo-funkateers Artists Unknown, The Advent, Adult., Dopplereffekt, and The Hacker himself.
