Unclassics 7: Felix Da Housecat - Kittenz and Thee Glitz (City Rockers, 2001)

genre: house, electroclash

Glam house revival? Future funk disco? Felix Da Housecat made this masterpiece after plenty of years on the scene without getting much notice from music press. This album came at the right time. No wonder this one conected with the electroclash scene of 2001. It just has everything the electroclash missed - mostly fun, glossy style and ideas that go beyond pure retro. There are great songs at the very beginning (Miss Kittin never sounded better), but it hardly fades away in the second half with synth-pop masterpieces like Pray For A Star or Runaway Dream. All the other albums Felix made are shit (sorry), but this one stood the test of time.

Other recommended albums from 'glitz house' revival:
Daft Punk - Discovery
Fisherspooner - 1
Cut Copy - Bright Like Neon Sun
Basement Jaxx - Rooty
