Felix Da Housecat (Headliner)
Nominated for two Grammys, Felix da Housecat first became interested in music when his saxophonist father introduced him to the clarinet. He then became interested in house music when it emerged in his native Chicago in 1984. Since then he has produced multiple worldwide club hits, including “Silver Screen (Shower Scene)” (also a top 40 hit on the UK pop charts), “Kickdrum,” “Madame Hollywood,” “Ready To Wear,” and many albums like “Virgo Blaktro & The Movie Disco,” “He Was King,” “Kittenz & Thee Glitz,” “Devin Dazzle & The Neon Fever,” “Narrative Of Thee Blast Illusion,” “Virgo Blaktro & The Neon Disco,” “Son Of Analog,” and “I Know Electrikboy.” He has also collaborated with the man then known as P. Diddy on the album “Jack U,” created a huge remix for Katy B, and toured around the world. He has a live BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and his own signature headphones.
Brooklyn native Jovonn (BodynDeep/Clone Records) began his career as a hip-hop DJ at the age of 14 and started spinning records at New York block parties in the 1980s, where he was introduced to the growing New York house music scene, hanging out in seminal Brooklyn clubs such as Sapphires, Club Saturn, and Club Serene. Years later, clubs such as The Loft, The Choice, Snobbusters and Zanzibar solidified his full commitment to House music. His second release, “Turn and Runaway” on Warner Bros. Records, reached number 10 on the Billboard chart and catapulted Jovonn on to the global scene. Afterwards, he set up his first record label, Goldtone Records, in the early 1990s via Emotive Records, and has since produced more than 500 records in the House, R&B, Hip-Hop and Neo Soul genres, along with film scores and soundtracks. His new label venture, Body N’Deep, released his newest album, “Timeless,” last year.
