Long before DJs became megastars, Caroline Hervé (aka Miss Kittin) was one of the first performers whose celebrity shined on a scene mired in anonymity. Starting in the early ’00s with hit songs “Frank Sinitra” and “1982,” her career has ridden the waves of success over four albums of electronic-driven pop that always remain fueled by the dance floor.
Her latest, Falling From The Stars, offers yet another look at Hervé. The double disc set feature classic Kittin tunes on disc one, while disc two focuses on moody instrumental electronica — a sound one might only recognize from her tendency to toss an odd Autechre tune in the middle of a blazing techno DJ set. URB asked Miss Kittin to decode her many lives.
