Biography

HE WAS KING

“This is my electronic pop record,” preens Felix Da Housecat, midway through a world tour to promote his latest album He Was King. “Whereas Kittenz & The Glitz was straight up electro, He Was King is straight Felix Da Housecat pop with a nice electronic feel.” Packed with club smashes like ‘KickDrum’ and future synth-pop classics such ...

Despite the rise and subsequent fall of electroclash, the pioneering DJ and producer hasn't quite given up on it yet. Even the title of Devin Dazzle and the Neon Fever smacks of 80s glam and thankfully the music backs it up. The only noticeably different approach in style is where as Kittenz & Thee Glitz was electronic punk, Devin… is electronic stadium-rock.

Introduced by his trademark cold, metallic vocals, first track "Rocket Ride" holds a slick guitar and synth riff that absolutely rocks, though not in the same sense that "Silver Screen" did, it's more electronic rock for listening pleasure. The 1980s sound is as ever prevalent with tracks like "Ready to Wear" capturing the essence that crossover bands such as New Order had. The closing song "Neon Human" is a fantastic piece of synth pop with the mantra "I Wanna Be Human", sounding like a Kraftwerkian version of "Axl F" for a new generation. Devin Dazzle is oppressive, quirky, retro and progressive--a shining example that dance music can still be made for listening without drifting into dreary chillout mush. -–David Trueman

After the absolutely superb Kittenz & Thee Glitz, I was probably expecting too much from this album.
It's much more hard edged and in your face although it does have it's mellow moments.
It's by no means a bad CD but the melodies don't quite sparkle in the same way as they did on it's predecessor.
Some tracks are also a little too influenced by tunes on KATG.
In particular 'Shes So Damn Cool' which is just a reworking of 'Runaway Dreamer'.
Good but not classic.

Felix Stallings’ obsession with Prince is well documented. On this, the follow-up to 2001’s electroclash-defining ‘Kittenz And The Glitz’, he reprises Vanity 6 – the all-girl group seen in the 1984 Prince flick ‘Purple Rain’ – with his own girl group, Neon Fever. Given that none of them have a musical pedigree, ‘Devin Dazzle…’ could so easily have gone wrong. Instead it goes very, very right. ‘Devin Dazzle…’ encompasses DFA-like disco-punk (James Murphy guests on ‘What She Wants’) along with his more familiar ‘80s reference points, while ‘Watching Cars Go By’ and ‘Everyone Is Someone In LA’ are sizzling fusions of punk guitar, lady shouting and Felix’s light synth touch. Meanwhile, Tyrone Palmer, who sang on 1997’s ‘My Life Muzik’, delivers the album highlight, the mournful electro house of ‘Ready 2 Wear’. This Housecat has certainly got the look.

Devin Dazzle a.k.a Felix da Housecat is definately stuck in the eighties but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Taking off where the Kitten and the Glitz left off this album continues very much in the same vein, a collection of eighties sounding electronic rock.
If you are a fan of the previous album then buy this, if you like the idea of eighties sounding electronic rock then buy this and rock on.

This is a very poor introduction to DaHousecat work as a producer. This is a collection of a flavor that has made a come back for some time and far too long: 80's synth pop. Only for reborn Nik Kershaw and Bonnie Tyler fans
