Miss Kittin - Felix Da Housecat

Felix Da Housecat

KITTENZ AND THEE GLITZ

CITY ROCKERS

The disturbing, disembodied sexuality of Caroline "Miss Kittin" Herve's vocals has led to numerous collaborations with the likes of The Hacker, Felix Da Housecat and Goldenboy. On her first mix disc she delivers a series of hypnotic narrative segues between an eclectic blend of minimal house, electro and experimental electronica featuring Marshall Jefferson, Autechre, and '80s Italian synthpopster Alexander Robotnick. Her first album as a solo artist is due out later this year. Meanwhile, Felix Da Housecat's last, Kittin-heavy album (from 2001) is re-released with additional remixes, including an outstanding version of "What Does It Feel Like?" by Röyksopp that is like Nico droning techno.
