Two time Grammy nominated Felix Da Housecat kickstarts his new label with three original tracks showcasing his timeless production. Founders Of Filth Volume One features the legendary Jamie Principle, who found fame as Frankie Knuckles vocalist and more recently starring in the 2017 Gorillaz album. Montreal DJ and producer Clarian also features on the debut release, concluding the stellar line-up.
A career spanning over thirty years, Felix dreams of going back to basics with his new label, “an imprint where no rules apply.. you can be as creative as you want to be, as a community. I just got so tired of fighting labels and for my people to shine, it went on deaf ears”. Born in Detroit, raised in Chicago, Felix has also been inspired by the dance scene that is emerging in Montreal, “I was very impressed by how people are truly into their art.. it’s about your love for the craft not for the money”.
The Guardian – “The flamboyant Chicago house doyen”
The Fader – “A House Pioneer…”
Setting the tone for the EP, In Thee Now exposes a true master at work, demonstrating Felix’s passion for the dancefloor. Transforming into his alias for Know Thyself, Aphrohead and Clarian deliver a warm and playful classic. Taking no prisoners, It’s Your World brings in the powerful vocals of Jamie Principle, layered over an immensely catchy rhythm and concluding the EP with a dazzling production.
Felix has reached dizzying heights over his career, releasing on Global Cuts, Defected, Crosstown Rebels among others. Remixing artists including; Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Madonna and Gwen Stefani. Felix has also previously collaborated with Diddy, James Murphy, and Miss Kittin.
