Miss Kittin (real name - Caroline Hervé, Caroline Hervé) is a vocalist, disc jockey and musician working in the genres of electroclash and techno. She was born in 1973 in the French city of Grenoble. She is best known after the start of co-creation with The Hacker; Remixes are still being released for songs such as "Frank Sinatra", "Stock Exchange", "Rippin Kittin" and "1982", recognized as classics of the genre. In 2004, Miss Kittin released her first "independent" album, "I Com", for which she herself wrote both the music and the lyrics.
Miss Kittin's style is characterized by texts of an aggressive social orientation (anti-glamor, cloning, criticism of show business) and cold minimalist music written with the help of analog synthesizers. Many of the lyrics are distinguished by some cynicism and the content of profanity, and the topics are mostly close to punk rock. Some of these compositions have caused scandals - for example, the heirs of Frank Sinatra after his death threatened legal proceedings for the phrase in the composition of the same name by Miss Kittin: “You know Frank Sinatra? He’s dead, ha-ha-ha! "
Miss Kittin has worked with artists such as The Hacker, Goldenboy, Sven Vath, Steve Bug, Felix Da Housecat, Chicks On Speed, Vitalic and many other musicians.
