|Also known as||Felix|
His 1992 track "Don't You Want Me", which sampled Jomanda's "Don't You Want My Love" and credited as Felix Featuring Jomanda (co-produced by Rollo and Red Jerry), went to number one on the Billboard European Hot 100 Singles and Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts. It also reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart in 1992. A remix of the song - "Don't You Want Me: Pugilist Mix" - formed the soundtrack to the multi-award-winning 1997 TV commercial for Blackcurrant Tango. "Don't You Want Me" was also sampled by David Guetta and Snoop Dogg on their collaboration "Wet" ("Sweat" - clean version) in 2011.
"Don't You Want Me" was sampled by Meck in 2007, to provide the majority of the music for his single, "Feels Like Home". In 2008, Madonna used elements of Meck's version during "Like a Prayer" on the Sticky & Sweet Tour.
Other UK charting singles for Felix included "It Will Make Me Crazy" and "Stars".
