Early DJ Career, 1995-1997

As time progressed, however, Kittin found herself emulating her parents' musical tastes by developing an interest in musical genres ranging from classic, jazz, funk, and disco to English pop. Finding her niche in electronic music in 1991, Kittin raved all around the country before doing her first mix in April 1993. Her first set came one year later in 1994, at which time she started her career with Tekmics Booking Agency, playing in the famous Dragon Ball wild parties of Southern France.

When she was 22, she began DJing, spinning records in France, Moscow and Chicago with Mike Dearborn. A major break came for the producer/DJ when she received bookings for the Dragon Ball events in Southern France. In 1996, she moved to Geneva, Switzerland, and joined the Mental Groove Records posse. A trio of early productions on various-artists compilations were scattered throughout 1996 and 1997.

The Hacker, First Album and Or 1998-2003

The first records she bought for DJing were Richie Hawtin's Fuse and Robert Hood's The Protein Valve. It took her three months to earn enough money at her job as a supermarket cashier to buy a secondhand pair of Technics decks, both of which she still uses. As the gigs started to pile up all over Europe, she recorded "Frank Sinatra" in 2000 with friend The Hacker. By 1998, she met DJ Hell in Marseille who wanted her to record for his International DJ Gigolo label. She presented him with the EP Champagne that she recorded with The Hacker. In 1999, the duo released the EP Intimités, which included a cover of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)". Miss Kittin and the Hacker released First Album in 2001. Several tracks, such as "1982" and "Frank Sinatra", became anthems of the electroclash scene. Slant Magazine placed "Frank Sinatra" at #86 on its "100 Greatest Dance Songs" list.

Miss Kittin has become one of the most important figures in electroclash, working with not only The Hacker, but also Felix da Housecat. She cowrote and was featured on the songs "Silver Screen Shower Scene," "Voicemail" and "Madame Hollywood" from Felix da Housecat's album Kittenz and Thee Glitz. The song "Madame Hollywood" peaked at #19 on the Canadian Singles Chart. In 2001, Sven Väth featured Miss Kittin on his single "Je T'aime ... Moi Non Plus," a cover of the Serge Gainsbourg song of the same name.

Golden Boy first met Miss Kittin after she remixed one of his songs. In 2002, the duo released the album Or. The album was released through Emperor Norton Records in North America, which had previously released Miss Kittin and The Hacker's First Album. The first single "Rippin Kittin," released in 2002, references the Misfits' song "Mommy, Can I Go Out & Kill Tonight?" from the band's album Walk Among Us. The single became a club success in Europe and became Miss Kittin's first #1 single on the UK Dance Chart. Pitchfork Media placed "Rippin Kittin" at #435 on its "Top 500 Tracks of the 2000s" list.

Solo Ccareer and I Com 2004-2007

On May 24, 2004, Miss Kittin released her debut solo album I Com through NovaMute. She collaborated with The Hacker for I Com, but the album has more diverse styles and is more experimental than her previous records. I Com yielded three singles: "Professional Distortion," "Requiem for a Hit" and "Happy Violentine." The single "Professional Distortion" became Miss Kittin's first single to chart on the French Singles Chart.

Miss Kittin at the Sónar Festival.In 2004, Miss Kittin created her own label Nobody's Bizzness. The label would eventually release her albums BatBox and Two after her departure from NovaMute.

She released Live at Sónar in 2006, recorded at the famous electronic music festival Sónar in Barcelona. For Sónar, Miss Kittin provided impromptu new vocals to her classic catalogue. During the festival, she was assisted by Aphex Twin, Modeselektor, Boom Bip, and The Hacker. The album was jointy released by Labels and NovaMute.

Miss Kittin also released the double-disc CD A Bugged Out Mix in 2006 through Resist Music. Disc One 'Perfect Night' combines underground classics (Mike Ink), electro (Cajmere) and minimal techno (Adam Beyer) while the second disc 'Perfect Day' is a mix of Miss Kittin's favourite post-club tracks from artists such as Wagon Christ, Monolake and Biosphere.

BatBox, Reunion with The Hacker and Two 2008-present
After two years in the making and almost four years since her debut album I Com, Miss Kittin released her second album, BatBox on February 4, 2008, through her label Nobody's Bizzness. BatBox's thirteen original songs were composed whilst touring throughout the world. Miss Kittin described the tracks as a flirtation with Goth culture, as reflected in vocal lines such as "bat in a box / show me what you goth". Artist Rob Reger designed the cover and included his "Emily the Strange" cartoon in a 12-page foldout booklet for the album.

In 2008, Miss Kittin & The Hacker reunited as a duo, and released the "Hometown EP" in June of 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. Two, their sophomore album together, was released in March 2009. The album was released 8 years after their first and only full LP as a duo. The first single "1000 Dreams" was released in March 2009, alongside a new club single "PPPO - People Pleasure Objects Power." Their third and final single from the album was "Party in My Head".

Miss Kittin remixed Felix da Housecat's song "We All Wanna Be Prince" in 2009, changing the word "prince" into "princess." She also appeared on the single "Le Flaneur" from the album Elemental Assets by Estroe in 2009. In 2010, Miss Kittin was featured on the song "DNA" from the album Ever Since by Xenia Beliayeva.
