NSR: Felix Da Housecat x Diddy Mixtape



I remember reading all the way back in 2004 that Diddy was doing an electro album with Felix Da Housecat and thinking "This is the end of electro, full stop". But Diddy (thankfully) quit going to Ibiza and it never came out but Felix's brand of Prince-punks-Kraftwerk dance music (thankfully) went back underground.

The thing with electro though is that it's the Converse Chuck Taylor of dance music; you think it's over but every 5 years it comes back into fashion. So now with Silver Screen Shower Scene and Harlot seated in the back of the record crate like Rosa Parks they finally get around to releasing something and it is 1 hour of filthy, robotic arpeggios and suggestive mutterings. File under: "Saturday Night 3am Driving Music".
