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.

John Lynx’s Electronic Anthem Motivates You To Believe In Your “Dreams”

Published

electronic anthem "Dreams" by John Lynx
John Lynx
is no stranger to producing euphoric basslines and emotional-filled masterpieces. With that in mind, the Chicagoan producer joins forces with Sergi Yaro to blow up the speakers once again. Effectively, “Dreams” is the kind of pop-centric EDM paired with excellent vocal hooks that help you stay motivated. If you think pursuing one’s dreams is important and necessary in life, then this new electronic anthem will move your soul to the highest vibration level.

The Tiesto and Armin van Buuren’s influence is notable on “Dreams” but it truly stands alone with its solid soundscape. Additionally, listeners can feel the striking climax right when the beats drop. As well as the magma of vibrant melodies that fades into the background of this electronic anthem. All in all, these sonic elements are there with the aim of energizing your mind and your will to build a better future. With a growing fanbase over the last 10 years, John Lynx finally dares to empower other creative musicians to do everything they can in order to achieve their goals, visions, and plans.

«Inspiration for “Dreams” is to never give up on them. There have been many times in my life I have been turned down to DJ or getting my music signed. I never gave up on those dreams, and now it’s become a reality. I am very happy I never quit.» – John Lynx

Hooked by Danny Spade
Just in case you haven’t checked it out yet, Danny Spade brings you feel-good vibes through his new song, “Hooked. In the first couple of seconds, its impressive intro will catch your attention. Designing catchy melodic elements, the music producer from Connecticut teams up with Tara Louise who stands out for her gorgeous vocals. Actually, there are some cuts that just make you feel happy immediately, and “Hooked” is one of them. Moreover, I love how he creates a bridge between EDM and Pop by reshaping and breaking up the traditional stuff you’re used to hearing on the radio.

Whoever listens to this cool tune might realize the love-themed lyrics and the whole composition is really well executed. Without a doubt, Danny is a rising talent that needs to be on everyone’s radar. “Hooked” embodies an effervescent delivery hooking listeners in no time. It is not in vain that his first single “Effort” reached over 114K streams on Spotify. This being said, I think every mountain top is within his reach if he keeps climbing with such great releases.

“‘One More Dance'” is about the power of music, which is able to distract you from your pain and to build your courage to overcome your everyday problems. It also works like a drug, that lets you stay in a fantasy for a little bit longer, so press play and get lost in one more dance and get the strength to face whatever situation you’re dealing with.” – R3HAB

“This is one of the first songs we wrote when lockdown started in Los Angeles back in March. A Zoom session with laggy internet between LA and Oslo led to this super on-pulse dance track. I loved working with R3HAB, and we’re so pumped to share this dance track with the world!” – Alida

Dutch/Moroccan DJ and producer Fadi El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade.

Alida is a songwriter, vocalist, and artist from Norway, now based in Los Angeles, California. Her passion for singing and creating music began at a young age. At nine years old, Alida started to sing alone in her room, recording herself with a tape recorder. While in secondary school, she decided to focus on music and began to fine-tune her pursuit. It was then when she learned the piano and began writing her own songs. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Alida began collaborating with various producers, songwriters, and artists, including Noonie Bao, Axident, Big Taste, The Orphanage, Cheat Codes, The Monarch, Loren Gray, Rollo, and Robopop, to name a few. The Norwegian singer co-wrote and was featured on Robin Schulz’s single “In Your Eyes'” which peaked at #1 on US Dance Radio & #5 on European Radio charts. Recent releases include features and co-writing jobs on Matoma’s “Embrace Your Life” and “Home Now” by Yves V. Alida is an extremely versatile topliner and, with strength in lyric, melody, and concept, can pen records wholly on her own with ease, and she is only getting started.
