LFO, The Mad Professor and Michael Mayer have contributed remixes to Miss Kittins new single Happy Violentine, which comes out appropriately on Valentines Day (February 14).
The track is the third single to be taken from her debut artist album I Com and in keeping with Kittins love of experimentation is completely different from her hip hop tinged club hit Requiem For a Hit.
If you dont take risks, you never do anything, Kittin told Skrufff in an interview last year. Everyday life imposes a certain code of behaviour on you, sometimes you want to shout in the middle of the street, but you dont do it because you dont want people to think youre crazy. As an artist though, you need to express yourself in the most genuine way, so the answer is to just do it. Im pretty good at that, she declared.
Like any artist I had problems with authority, nevertheless I did what needed to do, she continued, explaining the career narrative she pursued.
I think it all came from me trusting my own intuition and following this driving force I have inside me.We all have this ability, but people give up too easily because our society doesnt encourage abstract thinking, everything is expected to fall into the ranks. To me though, thats the essence of being an artist, said Kittin.
Happy Violentine is released on Novamute on Monday February 14.
