The Hacker

The Hacker radioshow

This week The Hacker presents the first part of his new LP released in April by his label Zone Music “Love / Kraft” and delivers for Ice FM a mix that gathers his favourite tracks.

Michel Amato began with French raves, spread worldwide his stylish-elegant electro-clash cadenced by the cold tone of Miss Kittin, founded Goodlife records with Oxia and then keeps up his productions, always inspired by Electro and New Wave. The Hacker has remained faithful to his roots, his music and his city of Grenoble close to the French Alpes. But today he breathes fresh air thanks to Zone Music, created with Gesaffelstein, that woven together two generations of techno producers (Maelstrom, Crackboy, Arnaud Rebotini, Djedjotronic, Carretta, Mikron the new release).

After “Mélodie en sous-sol” (1999) and “Rêves mécaniques” (2004), “Love / Kraft” is his third solo album. With this LP, The Hacker refers to at least two emblematic figures: Howard Phillips “H.P.” Lovecraft, the American horror writer, and Kraftwerk. These two influences are present along the first part of his LP, particularly in the terrifying and gloomy “Driftin”. The Hacker promises us that its second part (release in September) will be sweeter than the first one. No matter the mood he shares with us (harsh, cold or sweet), or the machines he works with, The Hacker still retains a genuine savoir-faire.
