Career[edit]

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 darker 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 under the name XMF.

In 1995, he made his own music in classic Detroit styled after Jeff Mills. His first tracks were released on the Ozone and Interface labels. Three years later, The Hacker founded his own label, Goodlife Records (named from a classic track from Inner City), with his friends Oxia and Alex Reynaud. However, he also released tracks on other labels such as 'A Strange Day' on UMF and 'Method Of Force' on Sativae. His debut album Mélodies En Sous-Sol (spring 2000) echoes New Order and Dopplereffekt.

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' and signed them to his new label International DJ Gigolo in 1997. In Germany, their success was immediate owing to the releases of the EPs Champagne in 1998 and Intimités in 1999. The Champagne EP included the tracks '1982' and 'Frank Sinatra', which immediately became anthems of the electroclash scene.[1] After the release of their First Album in 2001 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 on 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.[2]

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.[3]

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 was 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 Power Objects', both taken from the new album. The reformed duo embarked on a new European tour all summer in 2008, kicking off in France in early April.[4]

How To Avoid Getting Hacked?

The only way to avoid getting hacked is to never go online. Every program, browser extenstion you have ever installed or website you have ever visited can track your activity online activity.

Below you will find useful tips to avoid hackers getting access to your usersnames and passwords, email, social media and other online accounts. Go through the checklist below for your peace of mind.

  1. Don't use the same password for more than one account. Especially not your name followed by '1234' or your birthday.
  2. Use secure passwords, not simple words or sequential numbers, containing upper and lowercase letters. Use an online password generator if necessary.
  3. Most systems offer two-step verification and login alerts. This will notify you about suspicios logins and ask you to enter a security code received to your phone or email.
  4. Update apps, operating systems regularly. Some programs might have auto-update setting available.
  5. Free programs are never free. Probably they're just a bait to intall a browser extension or reset your default browser. Always get them from trusted sites.
  6. When installing a software always pick 'custom install'. Never go with 'Recommended settings' because that will probably install unwanted malwares too.
  7. Log off and turn off when you're done. You can also clear browser history.
  8. Save passwords to a computer only if you're the only one having access to the device. Others can reveal them very easily.
  9. Encrypt your files and always use secure (https://) connection.
  10. Windows has its own anti-virus but you can install and activate third parties like Avast, AVG or Avira. Sometimes these can also behave like viruses, especially if running the free version.
  11. Treat emails suspiciously if they're asking for personal data or to log in somewhere. Phishing sites imitate the design of login pages of known sites like Facebook or PayPal and collect your login credentials. Make sure that the URL of the website is matching.
  12. Use alias emails. One for business, one for personal and one to register to all kind of spammy sites. You can set them to forward the messages to your primary email.
  13. Check your privacy settings and make sure everyting is set according to your needs.
  14. Lock your phone with face ID, fingerprint, a secure PIN (not 1234) or a gesture pattern. Be able to wipe clean or track your device if lost or stolen.
  15. Dont's connect to open WiFi hotspots and secure your own at home.
  16. Use a VPN to be able to to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if your computing devices were directly connected to the private network.
  17. If you've been hacked then stay calm and try to connect and reset the passwords and wipe your data ASAP. Alert the relevant people if you can't: the site involved, your bank, or even the police.
  18. Always be suspicious!
