Default 4th Bday::The Hacker / Fran Hartnett / - 28th January

Electric Underground 4th Birthday Bash

Friday 28th of January - The Pavilion


The Hacker (Different / Rotation / Goodlife / Black Ops- France)



The Hacker started making music in 1989 at the age of 17 in Grenoble (France). At the time, Duran Duran was an early influence, but he later discovered the dark side of Electro through Electronic Body Music groups like Cabaret Voltaire and D.A.F. In 1993, The Hacker took on the hardcore side of Electro and released a few 12”s with Benoit Bollini (aka The Money Penny Project) under the moniker XMF on the label of the same name.

In 1995, he made his own music in classic Detroit style with Jeff Mills in mind. His first tracks were released on the Ozone and Interface labels. Three years later, The Hacker founded his own label, Goodlife Records (named for a classic track from Inner City) with his friends Oxia and Alex Reynaud. However, he still releases tracks on other labels such as A Strange Day on UMF and Method Of Force on Sativae. The tones of his debut album Mélodies En Sous-Sol (spring 2000) surmise his musical dreams where one can hear distant echoes of New Order, Dopplereffekt, and PCP.

In the mid 1990s, The Hacker began producing electro-pop with his friend, Caroline Hervé (AKA Miss Kittin). DJ Hell loved their first track Gratin Dauphinois on Technics and signed them on his new label Gigolo in 1997. In Germany, their success was immediate owing to the releases of Champagne and Intimités. With the dawn of the electroclash music movement in 2001 and the release of their First Album and its single "Frank Sinatra", they became popular worldwide. The Hacker is also sought-after as a producer, and has done remixes for Marc Almond, Fischerspooner, Air, and Nitzer Ebb.

In 2002 after their U.S. tour, The Hacker and Miss Kittin decided to take a break from their collaborative projects. The Hacker took this opportunity to produce many new tracks released vinyl, such as The Beach on Mental Groove and Dance Industria on Tiga's label Turbo. He collaborated with Kiko, Alexander Robotnick, millimetric and David Carretta, touring all over the globe as a DJ and started work on his next album.

The Hacker released his second album, Rêves Mécaniques in 2004. It became his first album to chart on the French Albums Chart, peaking at #130 and spending a total of four weeks on the chart.[1]

In 2007, he rejoined with Miss Kittin to release the double A-side "Hometown" / "Dimanche". To celebrate his tenth anniversary as a recording artist, The Hacker released the CD/DVD set X in 2008. The compilation contains live recordings, singles and some new studio tracks.[2]

Miss Kittin & The Hacker reunited as a duo in 2008, after a short tour of European clubs at the end of 2007, and the "Hometown EP" released in June that year. Further touring followed throughout America and around the world in 2008, before they both started recording new songs, some of which were performed whilst touring. In March 2009, they released their second album Two, 8 years after their first and only full LP as a duo. The first single "1000 Dreams" was also released in March, alongside a new club single "PPPO - People Pleasure Objects Power", both taken from the new album. 2009 and 2010 saw Michel put out various techno and electro eps on such labels as white noise and under control and more released are planned soon.

Fran Hartnett is one of the most experienced artists in Dublin’s techno scene. He began his DJ career in 1997, and then spent many years DJing at countless clubs, one-off events and raves, supporting many internationally renowned artists. Amongst these were techno luminaries such as Joey Beltram, The Advent, Kevin Saunderson, Marco Carolla, and Rolando. During these years Fran gradually gained a r...eputation as an accomplished DJ in his own right.

Ten years on, in 2007, Fran was awarded a first class honours masters degree in Music and Media Technology, following two years of intense study in Trinity College, Dublin. By this time he had made the transition from DJing to playing his own music live, supporting a number of internationally acclaimed artists (Surgeon, The Advent, The Black Dog, James Ruskin) with his deep, dark, industrial tinged and powerful hardware based techno sets.

The first half of 2009 saw the release of a number of remixes, including a remix of ‘Angles’ by Dutch techno legend Orlando Voorn, on the Irish label Nice and Nasty Records. Later in the year, an original track by Fran called ‘Alpha’, appeared on ‘Trapdoor Material Part 2’, released on vinyl 12” for Dublin’s Mantrap Records. This track has seen support from techno heavyweights like Surgeon (who has played it in his sets everywhere from New York to Berlin), Inigo Kennedy, Rob Hall, Kr!z, Jerome Hill, Paul Mac, Grovskopa, Charlton, and many more. Set for release in July 2010 is number 53 in the legendary Fabric mix CD series - a new mix by Surgeon which will include Fran’s previously unreleased track ‘It Was Written In Vapour’.

2010 is going to be a busy year for Fran. Following his first live show outside of Ireland, in Gent, Belgium, in May, there are a number of new releases currently in production. So far confirmed is a remix and a solo EP on digital label Limetree, a split EP with Anodyne (who has just been remixed by Autechre) for Mantrap records, a track on the second release of Irish digital label Stasis Records, a track on a compilation for Spanish label Subsist, and he also hopes to soon finish an EP for infamous Dutch label Audio Assault, who have taken an interest in his recent material.
