Felix Da Housecat thinks that dance music has become over-commercialized

After a four-year absence, house-electro-don Felix Da Housecat has made a grand comeback this year.
In an interview with Billboard magazine, Felix spoke about his departure from the scene and his battle with a mezcal addiction.
He said: "I was fighting myself. I was fighting the mezcal as I was a mezcalateer, and mezcal makes you hallucinate. I was fighting a battle within myself as I got so consumed with the partying and the drinking that when I looked in the mirror I didn’t recognize myself."
On the bright side it looks as if the Housecat has come through the other side fighting with his new EP 'Sinner Winner', which is gaining him acclaim.
When asked about the scene at the moment and his opinions on EDM, Felix claimed that it's all about whether you stay true to yourself or become a slave of the industry.
"I think the scene has become over-commercialized. It’s one of those things. You stay true to your art or you sell out. I’ve never sold out, and I don’t plan on selling out. I was just like, 'I’m just going to get the hell out.'"
He went on to talk about how the scene has changed and divulged from its roots: "To see it be used and abused with no culture, it’s pretty sad. It was a movement – Chicago, New York. And that was really cool. I just wish it could be a bit more interesting."
