Felix Da Housecat’s esteemed label Founders Of Filth are back with their second release. The label has received an accolade of praise from the industry since their launch was announced on Resident Advisor back in May. Returning with the Aphrohead alias, Founders of Filth Volume Two is bursting with enlightening verses and impeccable instrumentation.
The Divine opens the EP with a haunting synthesis and enthralling lyrics. Aphrohead leads you down a path of eclectic percussion and that all important kick throughout. An almost space-age xylophone forms the melody of Moonroom’s Hold/Release, building up to a frisky array of drums and shakers, propelled by hypnotic, slowed-down vocals. In-house band the FOFtréaL Quintet end the label’s second EP on a high with I Won’t Try. An energetic beat structures the groundwork for the label boss and his enthralling backing singers, taking you on a journey with thought-provoking internal monologue.
Felix Stallings has been making his mark on the industry for over thirty years. The Detroit-born music veteran has worked with an impressive array of artists over the years and his productions span a wide range of genres from house and techno to trance and nu disco. Felix has gone back to basics with his label Founders Of Filth, claiming that no rules apply in the community he has created, “...it's about your love for the craft not for the money”.
