Continuing his resurgent comeback, Felix Da Housecat returns to warm up your summer with another bizarre musical tale from the seedy underbelly of clubworld. As is frequently the case with his quirky concoctions, this curiously named thumper has got a bit of a story behind it.
Our hero met singer Romina Cohn in a club late one night, after having heard her track ‘I Just Want To Be The Residents’. As it turned out, Felix misheard the song’s refrain, and told the singer “I loved ‘I Just Want To Be A Lesbian!’”. She laughed and told him that he’d sadly misunderstood the lyrics somewhat – but in typical Felix carpe diem fashion, he suggested they record a tune together with the lyrics as he’d heard them. Et voilà: this dark and dirty banger was born.
It’s a slow-burning journey, all throbbing monotone bass, and vintage tribal percussion ticking and chugging away as Romina’s heady vocals seduce your ears into submission. Big snare rolls up the ante to boiling point before the track implodes in on itself and melts back down to nothing more than a kick drum and a bassline. Felix’s ‘Thee Loverz Raw Cut’ Remix fires up the techno intensity and provides an intense big room version, while his Aphrohead remix goes for bouncy tech house with a menacing twist.
ore stellar remixes come from Riton (chugging electro filth and trap-style bass heaviness respectively), hot new talent Cloud (‘90s house vibes with a touch of deepness), Hot Creations & Defected signing Human Life (big dancefloor gear with serious sub bass) and Bedrock’s Eagles & Butterflies (hypnotic and moody tribal tech).
With a weekly residency at Space Ibiza’s new night and this huge package coming in two parts (May 27th and June 10th), Felix will be omnipresent over the next few months. We’ll all want to be lesbians this summer…
