Felix Cartal
has become the king of energetic, electronic dance music, and he’s pulled out all the stops with a new motivational video project titled “Right Now” which he created in collaboration with Jacob Crawford. This time the Canadian DJ and producer tackles an issue that all artists know too well: feeling stuck at a creative roadblock with no end in sight. To encourage fellow creatives to push through their dark times, Cartal took a trip to Los Angeles and recruited some friends for insight into what has helped them when they’ve been struggling artistically. Over the backdrop of Cartal’s uplifting melodies and simply inspiring vocals, music icons including Kaskade, ZEDD, Lights, Anna Lunoe, and Chris Lake open up about their mechanisms to get through creative blocks, what success means to them and more. In the end, “Don’t wait, just do it Right Now” is the best advice. No matter how experienced, every creative person can find the motivation to keep going from this touching video. Check out a message from Felix Cartal himself as well as the full list of featured artists below:

“I’ve always wanted to make a video to help inspire artists who are just getting started. Sometimes it feels like being stuck is something that only happens to you. It’s not true. Everyone feels that way sometimes. This video has been over a year in the making, and I’m so proud of it finally coming together. TO EVERY SINGLE ARTIST, CREATOR, OR HUMAN WHO’S EVER BEEN STUCK. THIS VIDEO IS FOR YOU!” – Felix Cartal

Full artist list: ZEDD, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Galantis, Tokimonsta, K. Flay, GREY, Lights, Chris Lake, SNBRN, 3LAU, Anna Lunoe, Phoebe Ryan, Daniela Andrade, Dada Life, Lexy Pantera, Jauz, Sonreal, Luna Shadows, Milk & Bone, Naderi, Veronica, Frank Walker, REGN, Chet Porter, Sophie Simmons, Ofelia K, STINT, Gabrielle Current, Whipped Cream, Kasey Lum (Video Director), Andy Dixon (visual artist), Emmet Sparling (photographer), Matt Komo (director), Jacob Crawford (director), Gina Shkeda (YouTuber).

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.

Published

Nina Nesbitt
R3HAB
teams up with indie-pop powerhouse Nina Nesbitt for his new single “Family Values”, a sultry house gem with a puckish title that doesn’t necessarily mean what the lyrics are about. The track delivers instrumental melodies that build up to a percussive drop with deep, bouncy basslines that fuse seamlessly with Nina’s soulful vocals. “Family Values” sees R3HAB returning to a groovier sound, which invites listeners to the dance floor any time of day! It also follows his recent foray into the pop world with “love u again” with Olivia Holt and his remix of Jason Derulo’s “Take You Dancing.” Check out what both R3HAB and Nina have to say about their exciting new collaboration below:

“I got to know Nina’s voice when I remixed her ‘Somebody Special’, and I’m happy we got to create ‘Family Values’ together. Nina’s writing style is clever and surprising, which makes working on songs exciting and fun. She’s got the best sense of humor and a fun outlook on the world, and I think our song captures that perfectly.” – R3HAB

“I’m so excited to collaborate with R3HAB for the second time after previously hearing him remix my song ‘Somebody Special.’ I wrote ‘Family Values’ on a day off last festival season while sitting on a trampoline with a guitar, and it’s amazing to see where R3HAB has taken it and how it’s transformed since then.” – Nina Nesbitt

Yellow Claw Celebrate Barong Family’s 200th Release With 7-Track EP ‘BF200’

Yellow Claw Celebrate Barong Family's 200th Release With 7-Track EP 'BF200'
Yellow Claw
‘s Barong Family celebrates 6 years and 200 releases with an EP compilation appropriately titled ‘BF200’ which features seven brand new tracks from the brightest names on the label, such as Yellow Claw themselves, Wiwek, Crisis Era, RayRay, GHOSTER, Nonsens, Psycho Boys Club, and more. The Amsterdam-based imprint has become known for its wide range of musical influences and high-tempo BPMs, and “BF200” follows the same vein. Spanning sounds from three continents and even a reworked ’90s classic, “BF200” also has a unique and fantastical backstory. Ever the creative crew, the EP’s accompanying artwork, and bonus audiobook see Barong Family travels across space and time to save their home planet Mother Earth. Head honchos Yellow Claw describe the impetus behind the EP below:

“It has been a wild ride since when we had put out our first release on Barong Family back in 2014. During the past 6 years, we have met many talented artists who wanted to take part in this adventure with us and joined the family. Moksi, RayRay, Wiwek, and more all saw the transition from Barong Family – a music label to Barong Family – a worldwide brand with its own merch lines, writing camps in Asia, documentaries, sold-out tours in North America, own stages at the world’s biggest festivals. 200 releases seem like a big number, and 6 years feel like a very long time, but for us, thanks to what we do and whom we are fortunate to work with, it feels like we are just starting, as our excitement never faded away.” – Yellow Claw

As for the sonic journey of “BF200,” it begins with “I Want It” from Yellow Claw and Wiwek, who deliver epic hip-hop beats to set the tone of the EP. Next up is Canadian duo Crisis Era’s “Funky Pills” for all the old school ravers out there, while DJ Soda and RayRay’s “Obsession” serves up a sneaky dose of hard-hitting bass. Yellow Claw themselves reworked the Tokyo Ghetto Pussy’s 1995 hit “Kiss Your Lips” for the EP, giving the classic a modern dance facelift. GHOSTER employs Nanami’s breathy vocals to deliver a solid mission statement in “Belong,” before Danish threesome Nonsens put the pedal to the metal with “Teaze,” speeding up proceedings with immense 4/4 energy. Finally, all systems go on Psycho Boys Club’s “Break.” Did anyone expect Barong Family to ever take it easy?
