Oooh we’re ever so liking this new single from German electro maestro Kris Menace. Lifted from his forthcoming new album ‘Features’ (which, incidentally, features a vocal from none other than Mister Julian Hamilton from The Presets, don’t you know?), latest single ‘Hide’ features French house producer/songstress Miss Kittin. And it’s as smooth as butter, frothing with blips and beats and a driving industrial disco beat.
Spookily enough, you could hear the likes of Roisin Murphy or Sophie Ellis Bextor vocalling this track, but it’s so darn delicious, we wouldn’t change a thing.
Says Miss Kittin of the track, “Kris and I never met… I can imagine the album being an extension of his reality, an imaginary world where strong values and fantasy come together. His music is solid, incredible production skills, with an Italo disco-ish-French touchy twist… After working on millions versions, Kris turned the song into a superb space disco ballad, more subtle, more beautiful than the original. I am so glad he did that. That’s when collaboration is successful, pushing each other forward.”
The album ‘Features’ is due for release soon through Balance Music.
