One of the few albums originally released on the Radikal Fear, Felix's early house imprint on[PIAS]. It is an intriguingly diverse album showcasing the groundbreaking production skills that had already made him an underground star in the DJ world. In addition to key singes "Metropolis" and "Footsteps of Rage!," the album also contains timeless tracks like "Somekinda Special" and "Marine Mood."
Ive wanted to go off about Felix da Housecat for awhile now. I was perusing the story that ran in this very magazine last March, where we proclaimed his then-just released-in-America album Kittenz and thee Glitz a masterpiece. Its so obvious he shouldve been on the cover. The resonance of what hes done in the past 12 months is rather miraculous. From the now-dreaded "electro-clash" to the fact that he got to remix Madonnas James Bond theme, so much of what 2002 will be remembered by can be directly attributed to our man.
Basically, Felix has been producing this sort of New Romantic industrial techno since the late 80s, and its just now getting out. So masterworks like these two monuments to his productivity over the past 10 years are just the beginning. Metropolis Present Day ? Thee Album! Is the sound of an acid-house Prince during the Purple Ones Controversy era just check the minimal techno-funk of "Somekinda Special." "Marine Mood" sounds like a long-lost Duran Duran instrumental "night" version and "B4 Wuz Then" is pure sci-fi fantasy. And this was all recorded in 1995, thank you very much.
But its the Rocketmann project that really sets it off. All slowed-down space-age love songs, this album is definitely for the heads. Echoes of Moodymann permeate "Life-Form," while "Stardust" is lunar hip-hop. I bet theres a big story or movie treatment that goes with this, and it would probably play like an update on the flick Liquid Sky. Brilliant.
