the next release on leading french label zone is a very special one indeed from long time friend of the label and pioneering electro figure kittin. the artist formerly known as miss kittin. her standout original comes with an equally impressive remix from truncate. a long time stalwart of the electroclash scene who has put out many seminal singles. kittin has famously collaborated with the hacker and felix da housecat and mixed up new wave and techno in arresting new ways for decades. her albums have always been hailed as hugely accomplished and the prolific and innovative frenchwoman has worked with numerous top labels. now back once more in 2018 with her first solo single in some time. she is in fine form. her offering here. ‘eacid’. is a timeless piece of deep techno with brain melting bass and twinkling yet menacing keys. her own vocals are twisted and chopped up into wordless forms that add layers of intrigue and the whole thing is brilliantly broody. a breakdown at the mid point allows you to catch your breath as her voice refracts round the airwaves. then the icy hi hats and rumbling drums and bass land again with subtly uplifting. light emitting chords rising in the background. all in all. this is one of kittin’s most special and evocative tracks of recent times. remixing is truncate. the deep techno artist who runs a label of the same name and has released his killer wares on 50weapons. his version is more wild and flailing. with the keys becoming more manic. the drums darting about all over the place and the voice becoming more paranoid and trippy.
