Features, the new album from German studio gun Kris Menace includes a standout list of guest performances: Julian Hamilton of The Presets, Miss Kittin, legendary house vocalist Robert Owens, Daft Punk collaborator Romanthony, German soul singer Xavier Naidoo, Chelonis R Jones (known for his work with Royksopp & Booka Shade) and MTV award winner Simon Lord (singer for Justice’s ‘We Are Your Friends’) to name a few. Features will be released in January through Compuphonic/ Balance Music, and distributed through EMI. To get you in the mood, inthemix has got our hands on a free download: the Miss Kittin-featuring Hide, as remixed by French talent Nhar.
“The weirdest thing is: Kris and I never met,” Miss Kittin says. “I can imagine the album being an extension of his reality, an imaginary world where strong values and fantasy come together. His music is solid, incredible production skills, with an Italo disco-ish-French touchy twist…After working on millions of versions, Kris turned the song into a superb space disco ballad, more subtle, more beautiful than the original. I am so glad he did that. That’s when collaboration is successful, pushing each other forward.”
