Crosstown Rebels curate an A-star team of pioneers and legends for the labels next release ‘Touch Your Body’ by way of Felix Da Housecat, Jamie Principle and Vince Lawrence aka The 312 with two invigorating remixes from Moodymann to be released 24th June.
With a career spanning more than 30 years Felix Da Housecat now brings us his latest venture as producer of The 312 project. One of house music’s most recognisable voices Jamie Principle alongside another true Chicago house music innovator, Vince Lawrence and Detroit Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann is “the coming together of three of house music’s legends” label boss Damian Lazarus explains and “was always going to produce something special, in ‘Touch Your Body’ we have nothing short of an all time classic. Add to that incredible remixes from Moodymann and the dream release is complete for Crosstown.”
Felix Da Housecat explains how “growing up on south side of Chicago I was a huge fan of Frankie Knuckles and Jamie Principle. Vince Lawrence was over at Chicago Trax and was the blueprint A&R and catalyst there signing anything hot.” “Frankie’s passing woke me up. I wanted to go back where it all began and work with the originators.” “I called Vince and said I need your mind, guidance and your studio and all of us in one room to bring that spirit back in my soul. I told him we had Jamie Principle and the rest I guess is history. I wanted Crosstown for the project as I felt Damian was the only guy worthy and would understand and treat this project right. House Music needs this right now.. So here we are.”
