Yes you heard it right BootyShakers, Felix Da Housecat’s alter ego Aphrohead has released a new song after a 15 year rest! Felix Da Housecat may be known for a certain style, a certain approach, but the well known house guru has utilised Aphrohead as a way to exhale some of his more out there ideas, drifting into the more brittle, cerebral end of techno but with a keen sense of machine funk. For those who are not familiar, check out this banger of a track from the 93′, “In The Dark We Live”. I recently discovered this perfect song through the popular Facebook group, Nov29, which I highly recommend!
Thankfully Felix has returned with a four track EP “Let’s Prance” featuring remixes by Art Department and BLUD as well as Christopher Trücher (the albums co-producer) and Radio Slave. Felix’s original is deep and dank, with an echo chamber that is put to full use amid a robotic vocal sample and a Teutonic pulse. Check the original cut below!
