Miss Kittin - Batbox (Nobody’s Bizzness)
Batbox is trashy electro glamour puss Caroline Hervé aka Miss Kitten’s second album. Hailing from Grenoble, France, Kittin has been spinning since the mid 90s and knows exactly what it takes to hold the attention of her listeners, on and off the dancefloor. As the title would suggest, this is rather a dark collection of tracks, with her smooth and sharp witted vocals backed by smouldering electro-techy production work. Musically, the album is not particularly innovative, but the way that Miss Kitten fits together various instrumental and vocal influences makes for a pulsating long player. Winners include a hypnotic love ode entitled Play Me A Tape, the strangely utopian Pollution Of The Mind and a sleazy ditty named Sunset Strip. Enter the Kittin’s magical Batbox!
