Kris Menace feat. Miss Kittin “Hide”

9 Feb 2013

A delicate, uplifting techno tune, mashed up with pulsating graphic elements of black and white drawings.

Synthy house producer extraordinaire Kris Menace’s latest pulsating animated video for the single “Hide” plays around with forms and contrasts, that perfectly serves the music.

Unsophisticated yet fascinating music video hand drawn, animated and directed by  French motionographer Mathieu Bétard, is a repeating mashup of graphic elements and synchronized pale pink/ black and white drawings, featuring smooth vocals from EDM princess Caroline Hervé aka Miss Kittin. Some of you might recall her works with Felix da Housecat, Golden Boy and The Hacker from 1998 – the early 2000′s.

Produced by WIZZPROD, “Hide” is a delicate, yet uplifting techno tune, where Kittin’s vocals flow over the fizzy bassline and heavy drum kicks in an eerie, sensual chorus. The vocals perfectly blend over Menace’s groovy melody, creating an excellent mix of beautifully haunting, fun and alluring sounds. It’s pretty clear from this first single, that while the album may be his debut in vocal work, it’s far from an amateur affair.

The track will appear on Kris’s upcoming album Features, which, uhmm, features a host of high profile vocalists including Miss Kittin, Chelonis R Jones from Booka Shade’s ‘Bad Love’ – and Julian Hamilton from The Presets.
