Riding the hot streak of his recent single “Runaway” and the immense success of “Get What You Give” and its B-side “Hold Tight,” Felix Cartal has released another stellar track that will captivate listeners worldwide. On “Walking By,” Cartal partnered with singer/songwriter Iselin Solheim, whose vocals provide the perfect breathy foreground to his signature groovy, emotionally-stirring production. The breezy melodies and use of instrumentals give “Walking By” an organic vibe that seems appropriate for the serendipitous summer romance that the lyrics describe, while Solheim‘s voice encapsulates the song’s wistful, “what-if” nature. “Walking By” and “Runaway” are just two of the eighteen new tracks on Felix‘s forthcoming album, “Next Season,” which drops in May. Watch the lyric video for “Walking By” here (insert link).
With his dreamy, melodic and yet dance-floor friendly sound, Felix Cartal has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in modern dance music. 2017 proved to be a monumental year for the producer, who was included in Billboard‘s “13 Dance Artists Who Dominated 2017” feature and whose Spotify channel has over 75 million streams. Felix‘s appeal lies in his ability to convey complex emotions through his music, like the hopeful angst of “Get What You Give,” leaving listeners with a positive emotional catharsis. To this effect, “Get What You Give” has soared to the #1 spot on Sirius XM Chill and the Hype Machine and rapidly climbed the US and international charts, becoming a Certified Gold record in Canada and named one of Billboard‘s “50 Best Dance/Electronic Songs of 2017.” The track recently earned nominations at the prestigious Canadian Juno Awards, for Dance Recording of the Year as well as Producer of the Year. Shortly after, Felix released “Hold Tight,” the swoon-worthy B side track to “Get What You Give,” which also received support from Billboard and experienced similar success. With such immense recent successes, we can’t wait to see what’s next for Felix Cartal. Catch him live during his new residency at the famed Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas, which kicks off on April 8th!
