What better way to start 2008 than with the huge ‘Zone’ by The Hacker & Eric Borgo, already licensed to Jennifer Cardini’s new Kompakt compilation. The Hacker needs no introduction - a true pioneer with album releases on his own Goodlife label (with his friends Oxia and Alex Reynaud) and with Miss Kitten on DJ Hell’s Gigolo imprint. In 2001 at the dawn of Electroclash they were booked all over the world with Miss Kittin appearing as a dominant nurse and The Hacker cold as ice behind the machines and decks. In 2007 Michel describes his style as ‘classic Detroit style with Jeff Mills in mind’. Longterm friend and Tsuba artist Eric Borgo teams up with Michel on the moody techno of ‘Zone’. For the remix it’s a great coup to have the first mix from Ivan Smagghe & Tim Paris new project ‘Its A Fine Line’. The result, as you would expect, is a club mix that’s typical Smagghe – brooding moody electro with a super tight groove and eerie synths. It’s a big one!
