Felix has been D.J.ing and producing music for nearly 20 years, yet because of his many monikers people often believe they’re ‘not totally familiar’ with his sound. Yet upon closer inspection, most discerning DJ’s, realize they have at least one of his tracks in their box. This will be his first time Freilauf appearance in Zagreb. The man behind Freilauf Jogarde on the warm-up duties.
At 20, Felix organized a four-day free festival in Sussex. Collaborating with the D.I.Y. sound system from Nottingham, and calling on D.J’s from the Tonka crew. The Police roadblocks and helicopters couldn’t stop the party, as it was pre-Criminal Justice Act, and 4,000 people danced all weekend.
In 1992 Felix moved to Brighton where he got together with a number of close friends to form the monthly Slack nights, which although being held on Monday nights would regularly attract party goers from up and down the country, and would always be followed by an after party down on the beach or some local warehouse.
When Slack finally split it allowed Felix to change direction, and to set up the Ugly Music record label with friend and local record shop owner Tony Lee. The label released music from K-Alexi, Underground Evolution, D.J. Harvey and Jaime Read, among others. It was at this time that Felix began his D.J. residency at the Joint nightclub with Jaime Read (L.H.A.S) and Bobby Coulman (Soft Rocks) where he played every month from ’95 to 2000.
Since his move to London from the South Coast in 2000, Felix has been producing records under a string of aliases including LHAS Inc., Foolish and Sly, Das Etwas, The Mythical Beasts and Dedication.
Most recently he’s been remixing for labels like Jazzy Sport, Far Out, D.J. History, Strut and DFA as well as doing the re-edits and re-mixes for Horse Meat Disco. His new project Fist Club and the Milky Mouth Orchestra with Gerry Rooney (Black Cock) will be due for release in 2011, as is the Black Cock remix of Dirty Jesus that he also did with Gerry.
His D.J.ing has taken him as far as America, Japan, Australia, Sweden, Greece, Poland, Austria, France, Finland and Hawaii as well as playing at Glastonbury with the New York Downlow.
