Felix Cartal – Credits EP

April 29, 2014 Tim Gauthier New Music Tags: , , , , , , ,

Vancouver’s Felix Cartal is back with his new Credits EP, out today on Dim Mak Records. This three track EP includes “Ready For Love” featuring Chloe Angelides, “Who Even Am I,” and “Let It Go” featuring Lily Elise, continuing his evolution toward emotive songwriting and vocal-based melodies while still remaining true to his electro house roots.



On the captivating opening track “Ready For Love,” Felix Cartal delivers an inspirational, uplifting tune featuring vocalist Chloe Angelides, layering euphoric strength and beauty over Felix’s characteristic big-room sound. Sandwiched between the two more radio friendly tunes is “Who Even Am I,” the only instrumental on the EP and the most straightforward club track. Closing out the EP, “Let It Go” with vocals from Lily Elise combines indie pop and electronic elements in a way that’s far from coerced or cliche, and stands out in the sea of electronic collaborations.

Credits follows up a myriad of other Felix Cartal releases on Dim Mak Records, including the Past Present Felix EP, which debuted at #18 on iTunes Dance Albums, and the “New Scene (feat. Ofelia)” remixes EP. Felix’s music has been evolving since day one, and he now regularly collaborates with a dynamic array of producers and vocalists. The result is a unique sound that can be heard on his 2012 album Different Faces, which was nominated in the Best Dance Recording category at the 2013 JUNO Awards. In the last year alone, Felix has released official remixes for Zedd, The Bloody Beetroots, and Tiësto.

[Official Video] Felix Cartal – Let It Go feat. Lily Elise

April 17, 2014 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , ,

Pre-Order on iTunes: http://georiot.co/CreditsEP

On Felix Cartal‘s latest single, “Let It Go,” the Canadian producer combines pop and electronic elements in a way that’s far from coerced or cliché in the sea of pop-EDM collabs. The track is one of three from his forthcoming EP, Credits, due out on April 29th via Steve Aoki‘s imprint, Dim Mak Records. Another striking detail of “Let It Go” is the beautiful and soulful vocals of Lily Elise. “This song serves as the final piece to my Credits EP, an EP of three songs that all complement each other differently. I wanted to continue the idea of my last EP where each song is different, but still sound like they are from the same sessions. My favorite part of this track has to be the ‘Let It Go’ break. It’s simple and powerful at the same time. Lily Elise made that all possible. Her voice is unreal,” Felix says.

Let It Go” is the perfect made-for-film soundtrack to its accompanying black and white video. “I love what Kasey Lum came up with for the video. We filmed all day just around our city and I think the blend of animation with black and white footage creates this interesting surrealist vibe — a perfect complement to the song itself.”

Steve Aoki announces additional Dim Mak support acts for Aokify America Tour!

September 19, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As he prepares to hit the road once again this fall, Grammy-nominated international producer/DJ and electronic dance music entrepreneur STEVE AOKI has announced additional support acts for his upcoming Aokify America Tour. For the tour, AOKI has drafted an elite group of artists from the DIM MAK roster—the independent record label, events and lifestyle company, and apparel line he founded in 1996 and presenting partner of the tour—including Felix Cartal, Autoerotique, Dirtyphonics, Keys N Krates, Garmiani, Deorro, Rune RK, and Botnek as well as a new, specially designed production from performer Kryoman entitled HEX3D. Already featuring a stellar lineup with bass “Legend” Borgore and hip-hop heavyweight Waka Flocka Flame as direct support, with special guest Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes/N.E.R.D.) appearing on select dates, the Aokify America Tour stands as one of the highlights on this year’s touring circuit. Tickets for the Aokify America Tour are on sale now: aokifyamerica.com.

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 11.20.06 AMThe newly confirmed rotating talent on the Aokify America Tour adds a diverse array of artists spanning a wide spectrum of electronic music styles. Coming off his most successful release to date with the Past, Present, Felix EP on Dim Mak Records—praised by ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and BILLBOARD.COM, who called featured track New Scene” “one of the best dance recordings of the year”—Felix Cartal brings his signature electro house sounds. Toronto-based electro producer Autoerotique adds a heavier sound to the mix, best exemplified on the latest track“Play It Again” and the recent Asphyxiation (Remixes) EP, both out now on Dim Mak Records. Featured on AOKI’s Deadmeat Tour in 2012, French electronic dance music quartet DIRTYPHONICS return with their trademark heavy bass heard on their debut full-length album Irreverence and the corresponding No Stopping Us (Remixes) EP, both available now on Dim Mak Records. Dubbed “EDM’s hottest live band” by BILLBOARD.COM and featured by USA Today, Toronto-based live electronic outfit Keys N Krates recently released their SOLOW EP on Dim Mak Records, which highlights their trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop hybrid sound. Also featured on the tour are producers GarmianiDeorro, house/techno artist Rune RK, and production/DJ duo Botnek. Additionally, performer Kryoman introduces his innovative production setup HEX3D on the Aokify America Tour, which pushes the boundaries of live, audiovisual performance art.

openers

The new talent is not the only major tour announcement being made though. A proponent of pro-social causes and a philanthropist in his own right, AOKI’s Steve Aoki Charitable Fund is donating a dollar for every ticket sold throughout the tour to a charity selected by his fans via Facebook. Furthermore, for every year AOKI has been alive, he will match a corresponding $1,000 for a total of $36,000 on the tour. Fans will be encouraged to vote for their chosen charity from a group of four pre-selected organizations, including: American Brain Foundation, committed to curing brain disease; University of Rochester – Memory Care Program, providing diagnosis, treatment, and care of neurodegenerative conditions that affect the elderly and the aging nervous system; Brain Preservation Foundation, evaluating “plastination” and “cryonics,” two ways doctors might inexpensively preserve the brain of a dying person; and Infusio, pushing the fusion of cutting-edge science and the newest developments in complementary medicine placed in a spa-like healing environment. Fans can vote via a dedicated poll on STEVE AOKI’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Steve.Aoki) starting October 9 through November 23. Following the tour, AOKI will hand deliver the check to the chosen charity. For more information, visit: www.steveaokifund.com.

Meanwhile, STEVE AOKI is dominating the music world with the massive Linkin Parkcollaboration “A Light That Never Comes,” out now on Warner Bros. Records, and“Boneless,” a collaboration with Chris Lake and Tujamo (Ultra Music), which hit #1on Beatport.

[Thump Exclusive] Felix Cartal – Young Love Feat. Koko LaRoo (Official Video)

July 29, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

Felix Cartal’s new video for “Young Love,” the first single off his upcoming Past Present Felix EP and starring vocals from Koko LaRoo, is basically about a bunch of babes in bikinis bouncing on bicycles and bashing balloons at boys. Hope you like the letter B.

Opening shot: four ripped bros strolling down a Vancouver sidewalk. “I just finished lunch with the guys,” the main muscly guy who forgot to button his shirt says on his phone [italics are mine]. “I’m just chilling at the pool with the girls,” purrs a buxom babe at the end of the line as she slowly spreads oil all over her assets [italics again mine]. This delineation between the sexes is extremely important because it sets up the rest of the storyline, which is a—spoiler alert—PRANK WAR: GIRLS VERSUS GUYS!!!

As soon as the bros arrive at the pool (so jelly of that gigantic floating pretzel btw), guns and carnage ensue. Is this a sly political commentary on gun control laws in America? Nah… let’s just stick with balloons and boobs.

Past Present Felix comes out August 6 on Dim Mak Records. Pre-order the EP here, or grab this track on iTunes.

There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.

The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.

AutoErotique & Felix Cartal “The Alarm” assembles a skyscraper build tall enough to leave you wide eyed. AutoErotique & Felix Cartal dont just sound “The Alarm”, this track rolls, pumps, shouts and is on a steadfast skyrocket to “unreal”. These Canadian maestros bring a high degree of dance with enough bombshells to make you question why you would assume predictability for this track. Just take a listen and thank us later.

Out Now: Dim Mak Greatest Hits of 2012 Vol. 1

January 8, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

[lightbox url=”http://itun.es/i6J32vq” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://btprt.dj/UG0tb7″ width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3OVfxPLtFaw_tl2rwCXYLOh&hl=en_US” width=”960″ height=”540″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox]

Dim Mak Records wrap up the year by delivering the most prominent tracks of it’s 2012 catalog, ‘Dim Mak Greatest Hits of 2012: Volume 1′. The first collection features 15 tracks from a mix of vanguard artists including Azari & III, Autoerotique, Dirtyphonics, Proxy, Wax Motif & Neoteric, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Felix Cartal, Alvin Risk, Infected Mushroom and more. The vast, colorful collection will span over 3 volumes of Dim Mak music embedded in several genres and international appeal.

“Volume 1 of 3 compilations, features the best songs from the Dim Mak 2012 catalog that have been played by DJs from all around the world and those who have been a major influence from the Dim Mak roster. If you want a full taste of our greatest hits, get to licking!” – STEVE AOKI

Phat Brahms was the result of a collaboration between Steve Aoki, Angger Dimas, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. The track made its debut at Tomorrowland, one of the largest music festivals in the world and was later featured in the official video. Killbot‘s album Sound Surgery took over the second spot on the iTunes dance chart after the release along with a feature as a New & Noteworthy album alongside Dirty from Dirtyphonics. This past year we also welcomed a number of artists to the Dim Mak roster including Azari & III, who made their U.S. debut with their self titled album and the dance music pioneer, DJ Pierre.

Volume 1 befits the beginning year of 2013, and rallies fans to get excited for Dim Mak’s new sounds set for release. Steve Aoki recaps on each of the 15 tracks below:

1. Proxy “Raven”Out of all of Proxy’s hits, “Raven” was the definitive sound in electro, when it came out in 2009. Taken from his latest album ‘Music from the Eastblock Jungles’ ,which chronicles all of his hits
2. Azari & III “Reckless (With Your Love)”Massive hit from their self-titled album, and is f****ing great single that has impressed DJs since 2009
3. Dirtyphonics “DIRTY”Dirty is the first single off their upcoming album on Dim Mak Records; be sure to look out for it!
4. Killbot “Sound Surgery”Sound Surgery is the introduction to Jonathan Davis’s brand new project, fusing dubstep and heavy metal
5. Wax Motif & Neoteric “Go Deep (Torro Torro Remix)”Its one of the most played records, from Avicii to Skrillex. Literally everyone is playing that record all over the world…
6. Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike “Phat Brahms”Huge single; check out the remix package and music video coming soon…
7. DJ Pierre “Strobe Lights, Laser, Disco”Excited to release this track from the “founder of acid house”.
8. Tiesto & Steve Aoki “Tornado feat. Polina (Kill The Noise Remix)”Kill The Noise crushed it on this Tornado remix
9. Booka Shade “Tomorrow Belongs To Us”Booka Shade’s best song since “Mandarin Girl” and “Body Language”
10. Felix Cartal “Tonight (feat. Maja Ivarsson from The Sounds)”Biggest track off of Cartal’s Different Faces album
11. Autoerotique “Roll The Drums (Clockwork Remix)”You will hear about Clockwork again in a later compilation as well. Roll The Drums Biggest vocal record from Autoerotique
12. South Central “BEAThoven”Knife Party was rinsing this records in their sets constantly, so we had to put this out! its so massive and classical.
13. Albin Myers “Hells Bells”Straight from Sweden, this massive record has been played from the likes of David Guetta to Tiesto
14. Alvin Risk “Psychotic”One of my favorite records from 2012! Alvin Risk is incredible dj, amazing performer and producer
15. Infected Mushroom “Never Mind”I feel Army of Mushrooms is the best album to date of their music. This is the first track from their album on Dim Mak, and was executive produced by me. I have a close connection with this album.
