Felix Cartal Drops "Mine", Featuring Sophie Simmons On Vocals — LISTEN
Felix Cartal has built a reputation as the maestro of emotive house, and his new release “Mine” featuring Sophie Simmons is a perfect testament to his talent. For his first single of the new decade, Cartal draws upon organic instrumentals and lilting melodies to create a breezy, folk-influenced sonic feel. The minimal production style allows Simmons, who draws immense talent from her musical heritage, to shine on the vocal story, which is a wistful but fond one of how love changes over time. “Mine” will strike a chord with listeners all over the world who have experienced the joys of teenage infatuation, the struggle of navigating young adulthood in a relationship, and the nostalgia of seeing an old flame years later. This is the first time Cartal has teamed up with Sophie Simmons, who previously worked with Sam Feldt and Yellow Claw and whose solo single “Black Mirror” experienced success on Billboard’s Dance Club charts. “Mine” follows up on Felix’s 2019 releases, including “Right Now,” “Over It,” ft. Veronica and his hit “Love Me” with Lights. Check out what Cartal said about the new release below:

“In ‘Mine’ each verse is about a different kind of love. Verse 1 is about being sixteen, and your childhood, Verse 2 – a post-college adult and, The Bridge is a more mature adult looking back. We wanted it to be folk-ish in melody and in production to emphasize the focus on it being a narrative, really story-driven. Finally, the drop melody is Sophie singing a clean, sweet melody, and it being distorted kind of like what happens when one looks back on memories. We often remember them differently as time passes.” – Felix Cartal

With his combination of melancholic indie vocals and dance-floor friendly sound, Felix Cartal has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in modern dance music. The last years proved to be catalytic for the producer, who was included in Billboard’s “13 Dance Artists Who Dominated 2017” feature and whose Spotify channel has over 200M streams. Felix’s appeal lies in his ability to convey complex emotions through his music, like the hopeful angst of “Get What You Give,” which went top 5 on multiple radio charts, was named one of Billboard’s “50 Best Dance/Electronic Tracks of 2017”; and became a Canadian Certified Platinum record and Juno Award nominee. 2018’s release of Felix’s poignantly self-reflective album “Next Season” further upped the ante for the producer which has reached 100M streams and earned him a 2019 Juno Award nomination for Electronic Album of the Year. Between the release of “Love Me” with Lights, which went top 5 on radio nationwide and is certified Platinum; “Over It”, “More” with Kaskade, official remixes for Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Astrid S (to name a few), 2019 has seen a series of brand new tracks from Felix from his upcoming album. This year has also seen the launch of Cartal’s “club music only” project Glass Petals, which has been releasing music on Spinnin’ Records, Arkade, and Heldeep Records.

R3HAB
explores uncharted sonic territory on “Bésame (I Need You)”, his sultry new collaboration with singer/actress TINI and Latin GRAMMY-winning Latin Pop trio Reik. We quickly find out what happens when three powerhouses of this magnitude come together, as the track subtly fuses exquisite elements of each one’s signature sound. R3HAB delivers his deep, driving drum bass lines that serve as the backbone of the song, asking listeners to get up and dance, while Reik’s influence plays with Latin-infused melodies that give “Bésame (I Need You)” exotic appeal. Platinum-certified TINI and Reik come together for a female/male vocal group, evoking images of a balmy and enthralling night out dancing. The single is out now on Hollywood Records and follows R3HAB’s releases “Feel Alive” for “SCOOB!” movie’s soundtrack as well as “Be Okay” with HRVY.

“Right after we started working on the song, it was clear what the sound of the track will be like. Tini & Reik brought the perfect energy, which you can hear throughout the entire song. “Besame (I Need You)” is being released right in time to provide these necessary summer vibes to our fans.” – R3HAB

“I am so excited to work with Reik and Rehab. I find it very interesting to explore new musical styles, and Bésame definitely has a special sound, distinctive from other songs. I feel very honored to collaborate with these two great artists.” – TINI

“We love the song. It’s super energetic, it makes one dance and have fun all the time. It’s one of those songs that you really just wanna jump to. Looking back, we remember meeting TINI at a concert in Argentina when she was 15, or so. It’s crazy now having the song together with her. About R3HAB, we just recently met him, and we love what he does. He already remixed our earlier single “Si Me Dices Que Si,” and it blew our mind, as he took the song to another dimension. Collaborating with R3HAB again is awesome” – Reik

Over the last eight years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. In 2019 R3HAB’s “All Around The World”’ with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by “Flames,” R3HAB’s collaboration with ZAYN.

Since her 2016 debut album, TINI has become a global phenomenon, with a social following of 24 million and 3 billion combined audio and video streams. TINI toured Europe and Latin America on her headline “Quiero Volver” tour in 2019/2020, including 9 sold-out Luna Park shows in Buenos Aires. TINI’s most recent releases include “Recuerdo” (99 million combined streams), “Oye” (301 million combined streams), Gold-certified “Fresa” (379 million streams), and Platinum-certified “22” (365 million combined streams.) TINI has had numerous collaborations with fellow A-list artists, including Sebastian Yatra, Karol G, Morat, Greeicy, Cali y El Dandee, Mau & Ricky, Alesso, Jonas Blue, Alvaro Soler, Ovy on the Drums, Nacho and The Vamps. TINI will also be joining Alejandro Sanz as a judge on the upcoming season of THE VOICE (La Voz) in Spain, airing later this year.

Multi-platinum and award-winning group Reik is made up of band members Jesus Navarro (vocals), Julio Ramirez (acoustic guitar), and Bibi Marin (electric guitar). With a career spanning over 15 years, Reik are the most listened to Mexican band in the world. Reik’s top singles include “Aleluya” (110 + million audio streams), “Indeciso” (145 + million audio streams), “Me Niego” (575 + million audio streams), “Duele” (52 + million audio streams), “Amigos con Derechos” (337 + million audio streams), “Creo En Ti” (187 + million audio streams) and “Ya Me Entere” (421 + million audio streams.) Reik has a social following of over 45 million and appear courtesy of Sony Music Mexico.

Skytech
is back once again on CYB3RPVNK with his new single “Bubbly”, which finds him exploring a darker but still party-ready sound. The Polish artist has become well known for his big-room, progressive style sound, which he’s exemplified on recent releases such as “Skymelody” and “Not Alone” with Twisterz; “Bubbly” fuses this with a bouncy, tech-influenced bassline and distorted vocals. Skytech continues to be one of the most exciting artists on R3HAB’s cutting-edge imprint, and he’s clearly always got something up his sleeve. This booty-shaking track will have you moving on the dance floor – even if the dance floor may be limited to your living room at the moment!

Mateusz Dziewulski – better known by his artist name Skytech – is already a household name in his home country of Poland, and the rest of the world is soon to follow. His name first appeared on the map when R3HAB discovered his original track “Tiger” and then helped Skytech to put final production touches on it, proving to be a winning team after “Tiger” skyrocketed to over 100M streams on all platforms. Since then, the two have worked on numerous tracks together via the CYB3RPVNK imprint, such as “Fuego,” “What You Do,” “Hyperspace,” “Starflight,” and more, fusing their sounds to make music that is club and festival-friendly while never sacrificing substance and soul. Skytech also remixed R3HAB & ZAYN’s hit “Flames” last year. CYB3RPVNK is off to a strong start in 2020, so keep an eye out for more music from your favorite and new artists coming soon!

Lace-up those dancing shoes, because Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings just released their seriously club-friendly “Protocol Grooves Pt.1” EP. Boasting five never before heard tracks from CAMARDA & Almero, Stefano Iezzi & Joe C, GIORG & Santez, Soulvation, Mosimann & VY•DA, “Protocol Grooves Pt. 1” EP focuses on a decidedly underground, clubby sound, showcasing the label’s sonic diversity. “They Don’t Know” by CAMARDA & Almero opens the EP with a tech-house flourish that will light up any room, while “Hot” by Stefano Iezzi & Joe C and “In Your Soul” from GIORG & Santez deliver emotive vocals and disco influences from a bygone era. Soulvation’s “Gonna Make You Feel It” is both minimal and funky with its strong kick drums, before Mosimann & VY•DA close the EP with their brooding, melodic house gem “Waiting to Run.” The project is a new venture from Protocol, and it’s safe to say we are here for it! Keep an eye out for part 2.

Kaskade & Project 46 Team Up On “Chains” (A Follow-Up To Their Hit “Last Chance”)

Published

Kaskade & Project 46 Team Up On "Chains" (A Follow-Up To Their 2013 Hit "Last Chance")
Kaskade
and Project 46 once again joined forces for their new track “Chains”, a cathartic sonic journey through the myriad of emotions that are so prevalent in our lives today. It begins with angelic vocals crooning the line “Running out of ways to run away, I cover it up, but I can’t escape,” setting the stage for a progression of gentle melodies and rolling basslines into a bouncy, big-room influenced climax. “Chains” pulls at the heartstrings of anyone who has felt trapped or restrained in life, either by others or themselves. By the time the track’s drop comes, it’s as if the chains themselves have been released, and the weight has been lifted. “Chains” is Kaskade & Project 46’s follow up single to 2013’s “Last Chance,” the opening track from Kaskade’s “Atmosphere” album and Project 46’s most-streamed single to date.

STREAM/DOWNLOAD

As a household name in electronic music for nearly two decades, Kaskade needs no introduction. His list of achievements is a mile long: 11 studio albums, 7 GRAMMY nominations, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell out both Navy Pier in Chicago and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first DJ to ever secure a Las Vegas residency, and the first electronic artist to headline Coachella. Less tangible but even more important has been his influence on dance music tastes and culture for generations of listeners. Often Kaskade is one of the artists who introduced now-veteran listeners to the genre, and such fans are usually fans for life. In 2019, he worked with multi-award winner Meghan Trainor on “With You” and Gorgon City on “Go Slow,” among solo releases, such as “My Light,” “Come On,” and official remixes for the likes of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani earlier.

Canadian duo Ryan Henderson and Thomas Shaw, better known as Project 46, is known for their melodic, progressive sound that never fails to inspire and uplift listeners. They began Project 46 in 2011 and were active until 2016, with releases on Ultra Records, Monstercat, Armada, Mixmash, and collaborations such as “Last Chance” with Kaskade, “Collide” with Laidback Luke, “Crime” with Avicii, “Daphne” with Paul Oakenfold, and “Home” with Feenixpawl, to name a few. 2020 marks the comeback of Project 46, and we are looking forward to more beautiful, vocal-driven dance tracks coming from the talented duo later this year!
