Felix Cartal’s “The Life,” The Last Single Ahead Of His 4th Album’s Release

Felix Cartal The Life
Platinum producer Felix Cartal releases his latest single, “The Life” ft. Fjord, which is the last one before the release of his upcoming album, ‘Expensive Sounds For Nice People,’ scheduled for the 25th of June via Physical Presents. Also taken from the album are previously released “Mine” with Sophie Simmons, and “Love Me” with Lights; both are certified Platinum in Canada, with the latter one also winning the Dance Recording of the Year at the Junos 2020. Other remarkable tracks on the album include “Only One” with the hit UK singer-songwriter Karen Harding and “My Last Song” with the rebellious Norwegian songstress Hanne Mjøen. Cartal’s earlier “Get What You Give” also reached Platinum status, while one of the most recent “Happy Hour'” with Kiiara was featured on 32 Spotify New Music Friday playlists as well as Billboard’s Best New Dance Tracks.

➤ Pre-order ‘Expensive Sounds For Nice People’

“‘The Life’ bounces along on a sunshine vibe and grin-inducing breakdown. But analyze the lyrics, and things aren’t quite what they seem. Its pivotal line – ‘I used to believe that life was just a breeze/But the highs and low set me free’ – is a commentary on the superficiality of social media”, says Felix. “If people also share life’s ‘misses’ once in a while, I feel like we’d all have a better shot at living confidently,” he explains.

Felix Cartal tells us about the creation and inspiration for the single: “‘The Life’ was one of the first instrumentals I wrote for my album, ‘Expensive Sounds For Nice People.’ I’m obsessive with vocal chops and will spend days getting them to feel as emotive as a vocal. Once I started writing the lyrics in Oslo with Iselin, Erik, and Kris, we reverse-engineered some of the vowel sounds because one of them sounded like the word ‘The Life.’ I loved the grandiosity of that concept, but I wanted to make it feel honest and authentic. And I think over the years, with the increase in social media, we’re often guilty of viewing others’ highlight reels as the only way to be happy, but letting go of that perception will give you much greater peace of mind. Hardships are inevitable, things aren’t always fair, and we need to just learn from them and push through. That’s what the line ‘the highs and lows woke me up’ symbolizes. Fjord’s vocals on this track really took it to this unique place that gives the song a hopeful melodrama, and I’m so happy to collaborate with them again after the beautiful performance they did on my rework of ‘Get What You Give’ from 2017.”

Speaking of the single, Fjord tell us, “When we received the demo from Felix, it was an instant crush! We knew we were about to have loads of fun working on this tune. The songwriting was refreshing, and the production was already mind-blowing.”

Vancouver-based Felix Cartal has collaborated with several major artists such as Kaskade, R3HAB, Gallant, and has also created official remixes for the likes of Selena Gomez, Zedd, Galantis, Dillon Francis, MØ, Ellie Goulding, Diplo, Anne-Marie & Doja Cat as well as Daya & Shallou’s “Older.” He has been featured by major Youtube channels Trap Nation, MrSuicideSheep, MrRevillz, Chill Nation, The Vibe Guide, Selected, xKito, among others, and has earned over 360 million plays across all platforms. He has also seen support from BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard and Diplo & Friends, and SiriusXM Chill has also heavily supported several singles, while his Weekend Workout radio show is also featured on SiriusXM’s Diplo’s Revolution.

Fjord duo has received significant support from the likes of Earmilk, The Fader, NME, and This Song Is Sick, to name a few, and was featured Artists To Watch by Apple Music, Spotify and Buzzfeed. The two have previously worked with the acclaimed producer Tim Bran (whose other associations include London Grammar, Paul McCartney, and Bloc Party) and have collected nearly 20 million streams on Spotify alone.

edm masterpiece

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.

expands his musical spectrum alongside Anastasia Elliot with the new collaborative single, “The Shattering. There’s no doubt this orchestral EDM sound brings exciting new vibes to the table.

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.
