Kittin - November 2019

Friday 15th November. Sydney. Universal
Saturday 16th November. Melbourne. TBA

Founder of her own imprint label “Nobody’s Bizzness”, Kittin is the French born artist whose been taking the industry by storm for decades. DJing in the ‘90s and ‘00s was still a boy’s club, a time in which Kittin strove to gently change industry standards from within, suggesting and blithely correcting fellow DJs once lines had been crossed. 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 epicentre. 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. 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.” Her latest release "Cosmos", is her most spiritual yet, influenced by her time in the French countryside after a bout of touring exhaustion. She gives up any formulas from her past; verses/chorus, pop or club beats, to come to the essence of chords and textures, peeling away the non-essential to find joy in music yet again. "Cosmos" has been released on November 2, 2018 on Dark Entries Records and Zebralution, preceded by the release of the single "Cosmic Address" on September 28, 2018.
