Felix da Housecat and Kid Cudi

Terry McBride (Nettwerk) just Facebooked the very cool new video from Felix da Housecat below. Living in Chicago as an up and coming graffiti artist, Felix was perfectly located to develop a keen interest in the emergent House music scene, which found its hub in Chicago. Felix is regarded as a member of the second wave of Chicago house. He entered the dance music elite not only via his recordings (under a number of aliases, including Thee Maddkatt Courtship, Aphrohead and Sharkimaxx), but also for his ownership of Radikal Fear Records, one of the premiere Chicago labels of the 1990s. In 2009 Felix released He Was King, via Nettwerk Records. The album pays homage to artist like Prince and is heavily steeped in the elctrohouse touchstones Felix is known for.Felix Da Housecat - We All Wanna Be Prince
When it comes to up-and-coming artists, check out the Cleveland rapper Kid Cudi, which Rolling Stone Magazine recently gave good reviews with a killer sing-song flow got a major boost at South by Southwest, where he showed up higher-billed acts like Chromeo and Kid Sister. Check him out in the video below featuring Kanye.Kid Cudi - "Make Her Say" (feat. Kanye West & Common)
