The Best of 2002

Best DJ: Felix da Housecat Long before electroclash became the flavor of the month for the club set, Felix Da Housecat was an average Chicago house producer/DJ: worshiped overseas and virtually ignored on the home front. But with 2002's electro-fueled Kittenz and Thee Glitz, Felix knocked the U.S. dance scene out of its trance-induced haze. He layered '80s robo funk and sweeping new-wave synths over irresistible beats, adding the icy vocals of diva Miss Kittin. The singles "Silver Screen Shower Scene" and "Madame Hollywood" became club staples. Madonna asked him to remix "Die Another Day," her title theme for the latest James Bond film--further proof that Felix is the coolest thing since neon leg warmers. --Adrienne Day
