Felix da Housecat

Friday, July 2; Kastle

Chicago DJ/producer Felix da Housecat paid his dues for years in the underground scene before exploding like a well-timed volcano with his 2001 release Kittenz and Thee Glitz, which featured the oversexed electro-chanteuse Miss Kittin. Felix started off as a real house cat at fourteen, had hits in Europe at seventeen and at thirty garnered acclaim, ironically, from the very jet-setters he mocked. With his latest, Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever, Felix moves away from club cuts, hiring live musicians and exploring song-oriented post-new-wave nuance. Space-echo effects swim around girl-group vocal stylings on "Rocket Ride," and Tyrone Palmer works with Felix to create the synth-heavy, romantic, shoulder-shrugging "Ready 2 Wear." Felix plays keys on this release, showing off his Prince influence with funky bass lines and sexy lyrics. Expect heavy spins from both albums when he hits Kastle this Friday.
