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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Dazzle but no Glitz 16 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new "Prince" is here. 28 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 14 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Far over-hyped 29 July 2004
By LRC
Format:Audio CD
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
