Biography

There are many artists named “Felix”:

1) Felix was the alias of British DJ/producer Francis Wright.

His 1992 track “Don’t You Want Me”, which samples “Jomanda’s” “Don’t You Want My Love” and is credited as “Felix Featuring Jomanda” (co-produced by Rollo and Red Jerry), went to number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. It also reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart in 1992.

A 1996 remix of the song, “Don’t You Want Me (‘96 Pugilist Mix)”, formed the soundtrack to the multi award winning 1997 TV commercial for “Blackcurrant Tango”.

“Don’t You Want Me” was sampled by Meck in 2007 to provide the majority of the music for his single “Feels Like Home”. In 2008, Madonna used elements of Meck’s version during “Like a Prayer” on the “Sticky & Sweet Tour”.

Felix was born in Chelmsford, Essex and his sister, Rebecca Wright, starred in an advertisement for another soft drink, “Irn-Bru”.

Rollo from this act went on to much bigger fame with “Faithless”.

2) Felix is the musical project of classically trained pianist and cellist Lucinda Chua (who has also played in Stars of the Lid) joined by guitarist Chris Summerlin (Lords, wolves of greece, Kogumaza) and drummer Neil Turpin (Bilge Pump, Quack Quack).

Following a split 7” with Chris Herbert on the ambient label Low Point, Felix released a debut album entitled “You Are The One I Pick” (with drummer Elvis Beetham) in November 2009 on the Kranky label from Chicago.

    Just saw them live with Yann Tiersen. All the new songs sounded really good. Lucinda hung out at the merch table and when I asked her if there was a download code with the new record, she said, "No, but you can probably just Bittorrent it." Touche!

    Sadly yet another classic dance tune has been sampled and ruined by R&B. Seems they have absolutely no originality these days! I miss the 90s...

    I believe there is also a local southern grunge band hailing from New Orleans that also shares the same name. Can't say they have any recordings yet.

    ups, it seems we have another Felix here and it sounds a way better than eurodance, here is the desciption : Felix is the musical duo of Lucinda Chua and Chris Summerlin, who make their home in England. The focus of the album is Lucinda's askew stories, and the subtle conversation between her piano and the guitar accompaniment of Chris Summerlin, an intuitive discussion that speaks volumes by not saying too much and while never stepping on each other's lines. The songs themselves are delicate and spare chamber pop. They are understated and deceptively simple, but deliver an emotional impact that mere decibels cannot. Lucinda's tales of woe concern the banality of domestic life, small animals, and the desire to keep the forces of the world at bay. You Are the One I Pick may be an album of small charms, but they come with a frequency rarely found, and are myriad in number.
