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

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.

EDM Masterpiece “In My Zone” Will Get Stuck In Your Head!
Even though it’s been over 9 months since Tungevaag released this EDM masterpiece, “In My Zone” is still in heavy rotation on both playlists and DJ sets. Definitely, the vocals find a way to hit you right in the ear and the heart.
Believe it or not, the Norwegian producer worked on this tune for almost 6 months. Apparently, he applies the philosophy of working hard in silence and letting the results speak for themselves.
Furthermore, he describes the culmination of the whole project as a dream that came true.
Above all, what caught my attention is certainly the cinematic music video directed by Henry Lipatov. Many fans are comparing the visuals to the popular Fast & Furious film, and they’re probably correct.
On the other hand, if you’re driving a vehicle or motorcycle, this is the ideal track to feeling all the adrenaline running through your veins. Just make sure you’re wearing your seatbelt or helmet properly.
In short, there’s also something catchy about “In My Zone” that quickly gets stuck in your head. His formula is no longer a secret, and I think perseverance and passion were the main elements to obtain such an amazing song.

OnenO And Anastasia Elliot Unveil An Orchestral EDM Sound!
Even if the rhythm is hard to classify in the end, it’s a call to party hard, throw up your hands and stomp your feet. Sonically speaking, it features an artful aesthetic you can feel thanks to the shimmering violins and the piano at the intro and subsequently coming right before the bass drop.
Of course, the whole output wouldn’t be the same without Anastasia’s extraordinary mezzo-soprano range. A very unusual combination between electronic textures and operatic nuances that somehow works!
Stream “The Shattering” via Spotify below.
When circumstances are stormy and your world is falling apart, all you need is motivational music. The verses in “The Shattering” truly represent the encouragement to stop suffering and finally move forward.
Indeed, that’s exactly the purpose of such an upbeat song.
Moreover, the lyrics are based on the Japanese art from Kintsugi. Just as this practice leads you to repair broken pottery, in the same way, this symbolizes that you can find potential after tough times.
Well, this is the hidden message behind a unique composition. Hopefully, it’s the first of many future collaborations.
