Felix Da Housecat : Excursions
Stellar electro-tech mix ...
years, mainly because it kills off the cult of the superstar DJ:
if the choice is between sexy young things starring in some sort
of porno-cabaret or some bloke called Dave clip-clopping faceless
techno bullshit into the mix, well, that's barely a choice at all…
So where does that leave Chicago house luminary Felix Da Housecat?
Why, as the exception that proves the rule. He's got the
electroclash pedigree after 'Silver Screen (Shower Screen)'
and this mix further builds on that record's glacial charm,
voguing between the fashionista pop of Les Rythmes Digitales and
the spiky techno of Jeff Mills, shifting styles like a supermodel
changes shoes. A sleek, sexy triumph.
