The Hacker – The Next Step Of New Wave

Miss Kittin collaborator plots future of electro on his first commercially available mix disc

Trending Now

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.
