"Dark Days Exit" is showing the artificial intelligence and sensitivity of electronica, indie pop, folk, post rock and old school ambience with warm jazz elements, and reminds a bit of French film soundtracks, too. LISTEN CAREFULLY! With its fine subtle electronica and sublime moody electro tingles we think this album is very special. "Like liquid LSD" (Rage /ZA). It touches base to the worlds of Stereolab, Notwist, Console, Plaid or these likes, as well as it please the Compost old school fans, because some people say it reminds them of A Forest Mighty Black, Taran or others say it has the early Kruder & Dorfmeister vibe. Indeed a bit of everything, but unique enough to stay alone as an outstanding album 2005. Both Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmeister loved the album from the first note and gave us top quotes.The artist is a little star in South Africa, a cool looking and very inspired guy, who had two albums previously released on African Dope Records. But this album could be his breakthrough. For sure he makes an interesting interview partner. The music of South Africa's premier electronic musician, is fluid and deceptively simple, freakish, quirky but user-friendly, funkyand day-dreamy. Polyphonic funk like the sound-adventures of Warp´s "Boards Of Canada", "Autechre" or "Aphex Twin" and measuresat the same time the dope downtempo flavour of their label-mates "Nightmares On Wax". He is one of the best Electronic Acts in South African today. This piece is gonna take you on a journey from which you never will return. Follow Felix into his brave new world of music...By the way, Felix is not only a super talented musician, Felix is more a kind of artistic all-rounder. He is a graphic designer, a video artist and a sound designer for movies. He did the covers and the whole artworks for all his records of course also with "Dark Days Exit". Also he produced two really innovative music videos for his last album. Felix is a true artist who is reaching out for more.
