Felix Cartal’s “Don’t Turn On The Lights” now featured on Beatport

Tim Gauthier

Felix Cartal is first of all an amazing producer. His second album really showcases his pop side of his production. What you get in his track ‘Don’t Turn On the Lights’ is huge massive drops you would hear in his original productions previous to this, but now with a huge vocal…We crown this one mental.—Steve Aoki, Founder of Dim Mak Records.

We couldn’t be more excited for this release, as it represents Felix Cartal’s first step in his massive brand new sound. “Don’t Turn On The Lights” is a club-thumping track that features vocals from Polina, a vocalist who’s collaborated with both Steve Aoki and Kaskade. “‘Don’t Turn On The Lights’ is a chance for me to try some more memorable melodies,” says CARTAL. “I really wanted to create something that people could hum along to, something that they would recognize instantly, but still with powerful, hard-hitting production behind it. Polina’s vocals really helped bring this song together to make it one of the catchiest songs I feel that I’ve ever produced.”

Want more Felix? Who doesn’t… Check out more from the single, including the up-coming video for “Don’t Turn On The Lights”, filmed by David McDonald in Vancouver, Canada.

“A slow nostalgic melody develops into a frantic syth solo from the future. One of the notes transforms into spaceship and takes off towards the stars! The tension builds and builds as it gets jolted around and burnt up by the atmosphere but then triumphantly makes it out and blasts away into the galaxy!” ~ Zeds Dead

Release Date: July 12th, 2011
 
One night in Globe City, the metropolis of crime, grime and corruption, two rivals from the city’s most dangerous street gangs met: Blinks and Ultrabeaters.

Instead of fighting each other, wouldn’t the ultimate situation be if they co operated and together formed one super gang? Yes. They are prepared to do what it takes to have absolute control of one of the craziest markets out there, dancemusic. Meet Myback.
