Forward-thinking PC Music producer felicita takes the Best Fit Q&A ahead of his set at our new music festival, the Five Day Forecast.
felicita - real name Dominik Dvorak - draws upon his Polish heritage and the physicality of dance for his uniquely off-kilter style of electronica. Jerky, erratic shards of discordant glitch stab from the speakers on 2018 album hej!, which bears as many similarities to frequent collaborator SOPHIE as it does to avant-garde classicists such as Hauschka. felicita may be releasing his noises through PC Music, but this is a far cry from the bubblegum hyper-pop of Hannah Diamond or A.G. Cook. The noise is brutal and primal, intimate and so innately human, and it flips the perception of the pioneering label for the umpteenth time.
Explore "hej!" below and get to know felicita (or not) via the Q&A afterwards.
