about

New kid Felix Leifur made quiet a stir with his debut release on Dirt Crew last year. The Icelandic juggernaut comes from the striving Reykjavik music scene and is working closely with the “Lagaffe Tales” guys on building a new northern House empire. Since his debut he’s been working hard on creating a more varied vision of his unique lo slung hip hop approach to house music. With this EP he offers six new outings that have one thing in common, very warm and moody sounds ranging from Disco through jazz and hip hop. We’re certain that he will continue to further cement his name in the coming years and we’re looking forward to working with him on plenty of exciting projects.

Opening with “Eyelids”, Felix delivers a rough, deep and dark house cut with broken beats, warped piano loops and twisted sampling throughout. “Classy” has a smoky jazz feeling, kept tight with clever beat programming while evolving around a catchy sax motif. Our personal fav is the title track, “In General”, a stunning broken beat house jam, smooth and loose, with swirling keys and a funk flavoured bass.

The B-side begins with “Midwinter”, a dance floor gem on a straight up junket. It’s deep, forward moving and bass driven, much like his track “Feels Like” that featured on our Deep Love compilation in 2016. Yet another highlight for us is “Apollo”, there’s not many records out there that sound quite like this, thoroughly warped and contorted, depraved strings and a hypnotising Rhodes arc and strain until the bass drops and it all falls in place...Psychedelic beauty! He closes with “Mine”, a dope lo fi hip hop beat that casually wraps our ears, an ice cold soul infused piece.
