Felix Da Housecat, Jamie Principle & Vince Lawrence are The 312 on new EP
Crosstown Rebels will release the record, complete with remixes from Moodymann.
The 312 will release its debut single, Touch Your Body, on Crosstown Rebels next month.
The group consists of three well-known figures in Chicago house: Felix Da Housecat, Jamie Principle and Vince Lawrence. "Growing up on the South Side of Chicago I was a huge fan of Frankie Knuckles and Jamie Principle," says Felix Da Housecat, real name Felix Stallings.
While Stallings may be the more recognizable of the three, Principle and Lawrence's careers extend back to the earliest days of Trax Records. Principle was behind one of the label's early hits, "Your Love" with Frankie Knuckles, while Lawrence worked as the label designer and A&R guy. "Jamie and I always discussed working together and it took over 15 years," Stallings says.
Their first single, Touch Your Body will land on Damian Lazarus' label Crosstown Rebels next month, accompanied by two Moodymann remixes.
01. Touch Your Body
02. Touch Your Body (Moodymann Remix)
03. Touch Your Body (Moodymann Dub Mix)
Crosstown Rebels will release Touch Your Body on June 24th, 2016.
