Felix Da Housecat - Chicago Trance DJ
Rated by none other than Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and Spin as ‘one of the most creative artists in music today’, DJ Felix Da Housecat was born Felix Stallings in Chicago, Illinois. This multi-talented DJ and record producer is regarded as a key member of the second wave of Chicago House music. He shot to fame under a number of aliases including ‘Sharimaxx’ and ‘Aphrohead’ apart from being his ownership of Radikal Fear Records, a premier label of the 1990s. A 15 year old young Stallings got his first big break under the guidance of DJ Pierre when he released his first single ‘Phantasy Girl’, way back in 1987. His 1992 hit single ‘Three Dawn’ on Guerilla Records and the follow-up ‘By Dawn’s Early Light’ and ‘Thee Industry Made Me Do It’, saw his popularity charity zoom. There was no looking back.
Radikal Records formed by Stallings became one of the foremost House labels in the world during this time and several leading DJs including Sneak and Armando released cuts apart from Stallings himself as part of the label. The year 1995 saw him release his debut full length album ‘Alone in the Dark’, followed by ‘The Chicago All Stars’. Another smash hit ‘Metropolis Present Day’ followed in 1998.
Then came the critically acclaimed ‘Kittenz and Thee Glitz,’ which got him world wide exposure in the dance music circles. In fact, the release is often mentioned as the pioneering release of the ‘electroclash’ movement. From Madonna to Kylie Minogue, everyone worked with him for remixes. 2002’s ‘Excursions’ and 2003’s ‘A Bugged Out Mix’ saw him further consolidate his position. Stallings was nominated for Grammy for his mix of Rinocerose’s ‘Lost Love’ in 2003.
May of 2005 saw Felix release ‘Bring Me Da Funk’ along with his idol Peds. This smash hit was released on their label ‘Shy-fxl-records’. His phenomenal popularity meant that this versatile genius’ music was featured in the snowboarding game ‘SSX 3’ and his hit single ‘Rocket Ride’ was featured in the game ‘Need for Speed Underground 2’. Great going Felix, spin ‘em hard and bring the house down.
