Miss Kitten, aka: Caroline HervÁ© of Grenoble, France is the crushed red pepper of EDM (and before that, Electro Clash) — her seductive and delicious vocals spice up just about everything. My CD wall is packed full of her seductive femme bot dance floor diva albums with The Hacker, Golden Boy and Felix da Housecat (Kittenz & thee Glitz is an absolute masterpiece) as well as her adventurous solo work. Add to this impressive list, Kris Menace, an equally legendary producer and remixer who has re-imagined tracks by Depeche Mode, LCD Soundsystem, Underworld and Lana Del Rey to name a few.

On his new album, Features, Menace creates a variety of electronic soundscapes while pushing guest vocalists into new territory. In addition to Miss Kitten, Features will feature Julian Hamilton (The Presets), house music legend Robert Owens, Daft Punk collaborator Romanthony, German soul singer Xavier Naidoo, Chelonis R Jones (Royksopp and Booka Shade collaborator) and Simon Lord (singer for Justice’s We Are Your Friends’). You might not know the names, but if you’ve spent anytime looking good on the dancefloor lately, you will certainly recognize the voices.

In addition to the album and a single packed with remixes, Menace hired director Mathieu BÁ©tard and the award winning Parisian production house Quad / WizzProdto to create this eye-popping and hypnotic animated video:
