Champagne is the debut extended play (EP) by the French recoding duo Miss Kittin & The Hacker. Released in July 1998,[1] several of the album's songs were later included on the duo's debut studio album First Album.


Background and development

While establishing themselves as musicians and appearing on several compilation albums for Mental Groove Records,[2] Miss Kittin & The Hacker eventually signed to DJ Hell's label International DeeJay Gigolo Records to release their debut EP as a duo Champagne. The Hacker explained in an interview with In the Mix about the musical direction of the EP:

"When we started we decided that we won’t do classic techno. We wanted to bring back some human feelings to electronic music, and also, very important, some lyrics and with Miss Kittin’s words it was perfect. At last electronic music had something to say! Another thing was that I wanted to use classic song structure in an electronic style."[3]


  • "1982" was released as the album's lead single commercially worldwide in 1998. The song became an underground hit and was featured on German MTV.[4]
