More than 20 years since they first linked up, Miss Kittin & The Hacker still have it.
The first instalment of Lost Tracks showcased the duo's chilly beginnings from the same time period. The tracks on Vol. 2 are more robust. "Upstart" is a solid instrumental workout with tick-tock synths and a considerable rhythmic backend, while "The Building" takes the shape of a glassy-eyed roller with punchy drums breaking through in its middle third. Where the brief and tangy "Snuff Movies" is more a fascinating curio than a full-fledged work, Vol. 2's crown jewel is the electro-pop gem "Love On 26," featuring wistful vocals from Kittin atop night-drive synths that would sound at home on Italians Do It Better. The song functions as a retroactive window into Miss Kittin & the Hacker's future releases, and another reason for fans of their work to dig into their archives.
