Miss Kittin, Queen of Electroclash, Arrives at Vagabond January 14

Ah, electroclash. The dance genre known for its analog rhythms and monotone vocals. Part krautrock, part electro, it was a genre doomed to fail from the start. Why? Well, once you heard one electroclash track, you've pretty much heard them all.

That's not to say there weren't some genuine electroclash superstars back in the 2000s. At one point or another, Peaches, Felix Da Housecat, and Ladytron all dabbled in the scene. Hell, even Kelly Osbourne tried to jump on the bandwagon.

But if anyone did it best, it was French DJ-producer Miss Kittin.

In the beginning, she teamed with the Hacker, creating instant dance floor anthems like "Frank Sinatra" and "1982." Later, as a solo artist, she gave back to the nightclubs with "Requiem For a Hit."

And then after two albums, Miss Kittin ditched the bitch-with-an-attitude vocals and returned to work with the Hacker for 2009's Two.

Witness the electro puss live, when she DJs at the Vagabond January 14. Tickets will go on sale this Wednesday via Wantickets.com.

Need proof of Miss Kittin's prowess? Here is a compilation on some of her best work.
