It’s been an incredible year for our boy, Felix Cartal. With several chart-topping singles and his newly released “Past, Present, Felix” EP already climbing to the top of the iTunes & Beatport charts, Felix is gearing up for one of the most successful years in his career so far.
[info_box_1 title=”ABOUT THE RELEASE”] “Young Love” featuring Koko LaRoo by FELIX CARTAL managed to encapsulate the sounds of summer, nostalgia, and, of course, young love. The fetching and popular track is back to thrill listeners, this time with remixes by VALENTINO KHAN, SLEEPY TOM, BURNS, and THE REEF. Working with the wistful sounds of KoKo LaRoo’s vocals, the remixes vary greatly in what they bring to the table of the smash song. While the VALENTINO KHAN remix amps up the volume and tempo of the overlays, the BURNS remix provides D&B breakbeats that will appeal to the junglists out there. To take a track that is as loved and adored as “Young Love” and turn it into a prime example of the multi-facets of dance music is no easy feat, but these four remixes have done just that and more.
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.
Do you like water balloons, bikes, babes and oversized pretzels? Then you’re in luck! Felix Cartal‘s new super summery music video for “Young Love feat. Koko LaRoo” comes out in just 2 more days! Check the video above for a quick snippet of what to look forward to.
Music is universal. It transcends. It has the ability to transport the listener to another world, another time, displacing any worries he or she may have. There’s nothing like a track that delivers a powerful element of nostalgia.
Felix Cartal’s new single, “Young Love”, taken from his upcoming Past Present Felix EP, embodies the season that often evokes such memories …summer. With a sun-drenched beat, chilling vocals provided by Koko LaRoo, lyrics of youthfulness and the infectious energy that we’ve come to expect from Felix, “Young Love” is a melodious song with enough zest to amp up even the most discerning of music lovers. It’s classic, it’s fresh, it feels the way young love should…it’s everything we love about Felix’s flawless resonance.
