Boomkat Product Review:
Dark Entries revive a quartet of electroclash demos from Miss Kittin & The Hacker's late '90s archive. As the reissue machine's feedback loops grow ever tighter, it makes sense that we're now checking for the first wave of artists to really fetishise Italo disco, New Wave and Detroit techno after the moment in the wake of early '90s rave-techno, which they deemed; "too serious. There was no fun. It was not sexy". Conceived prior to their emergence on DJ Hell's International Deejay Gigolo Records, these tracks could arguably have been made any time between 1980 and 1997, using an authentic array of Korg MS-20, SH-101, TR-606, TR-808 and Boss DR660 drum machine to fashion the pulsating coldwave dysphoria of 'Leather Forever' and the icy Dopplereffekt styles of 'Nightlife', plus the Cybotron nod 'Miss Crazy Bullshit', and the raw, freaky I-F compatibility of 'Loving The Alien'.
