I Edinburgh’s Biggest Party at

Back of A List card


Access at the Honeycomb, Edinburgh, Fri 4 Jun

In terms of great musical double-acts of our time, they mi '. the tongue quite so readily as Lennon and McCartney, M rissey and Man\ or Gallagher and Gallagher, but there’s no doubting that la: Hacker are still reasonably inseparable in the minds oft

ht not roll off

'ss Kittin and th ir fans.

Yet separate theyi‘have. It’s been a whole four years since ‘Frank Sinatra’

and First Album caused the pair to be

crowned the Queen and Prince of

electroclash, respec 'vely (Felix is the

King; don’t you forget it). With both releasing solo albums this year their

separate agendas are thrown sharply

into focus, but it’s hard to imagine

Michel Amato (aka the Hacker) has gone

back to the hardcore ways first

demonstrated over a decade

ago in his hometown of

Grenoble as one half of XMF.

He might be missing the

Kittin’s soulful influence, but

the 805 loom large in

Amato’s record collection and

you can guarantee the decade

will permeate the more straight-

up techno on offer during his set. It’s a coup for Access to have

secured his services for one of only two dates in the UK, and the club’s Pyz sums it up perfectly. ‘l’ve never been this excited about a gig we’ve put on before, and I’m just counting down the minutes!’ Amen to that.
