Cats Love Velvet by Felix Da Housecat x Kristin Velvet
Felix Da Housecat and Kristin Velvet collaborate for two thumping house cuts dropping on Arms & Legs, the Berlin-based imprint Velvet runs alongside Daniel Steinberg and Nils Ohrmann.
Chicago-bred, two-time Grammy Award nominee Felix Da Housecat teams up with Australia’s Kristin Velvet, one of the scene’s most exciting talents. Velvet has helmed Arms & Legs for many years, a label that’s featured releases and remixes from artists like Oliver Dollar, 808 State, Paul Johnson, Jay Haze, DJ W!LD and Crazy P. Whilst most of her material has landed here, more recently Velvet’s productions have appeared on Tiger Stripes’ Strange Idols and Darren Emerson’s Detone gaining support from many of house and techno’s upper echelons, such as Maya Jane Coles, Adam Beyer and Eats Everything.
As the song title hints, "Marshall & Pierre" is an ode to Felix’s Chicago roots, albeit a twisted one. Having grown up in outback Australia about as far removed from the windy city as humanly possible and fascinated by its history, Velvet was curious to hear the story how Felix met his early studio mentor DJ Pierre. Felix responded with "I don’t wanna sing about Pierre!" and the track was born, utterly infectious and perfectly ironic at the same time.
"It’s Hot" is a sweat soaked acid assault. Over a jacking beat, Felix relentlessly insists "It’s hot...It’s hot..." and he’s not wrong. "It’s Hot" is a hugely effective, dancefloor weapon.
