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.

Hard-line Indonesian province shaves mohawks off punk rockers detained at concert

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia — Police in Indonesia’s most conservative province raided a punk-rock concert and detained 65 fans, buzzing off their spiky mohawks and stripping away body piercings because of the perceived threat to Islamic values.

Dog-collar necklaces and chains also were taken from the youths before they were thrown in pools of water for “spiritual” cleansing, local police chief Iskandar Hasan said Wednesday.

After replacing their “disgusting” clothes, he handed each a toothbrush and barked “use it.”

The crackdown marked the latest effort by authorities to promote strict moral values in Aceh, the only province in this secular but predominantly Muslim nation of 240 million to have imposed Islamic laws.

Here, adultery is punishable by stoning to death. Homosexuals have been thrown in jail or lashed in public with rattan canes. Women are forced to wear headscarves and told, please, no tight pants.
