    Felix Da Housecat: Excursions

    CD / various / Obsessive

    This is a DJ mix CD by Felix. While his production skills are well-established, most of the track selections on this disc are either too obvious or too unrelentingly tedious.

  • Nikakoi


    CD / Sestrichka / WMF Records

    Nikakoi's music is tech-house, similar to Closer Musik, or Borneo & Sporenburg. I really like this disc. It is warm and full, even as it reminds me of the loneliness of urban life.
