on Riverside - Dim Mak
2012 marks an important year for Felix Cartal, as the first single off his sophomore album has demonstrated, his sound has matured into simply put: memorable music. This single "Don't Turn On The Lights", featuring a vocal from Ultra Music topliner Polina, has garnered support from MTV, BPM (Sirius XM) and Muchmusic, who have added the video and song into heavy rotation.
Not wanting to slow down, Cartal maintains an aggressive release schedule leading up to the drop date of his sophomore LP "DIFFERENT FACES" on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records in late March 2012. The 2nd single, DOMO (out Feb 7th), taps into aggressive sounds and Japanese pop culture, whereas the 3rd single BLACK TO WHITE (out March 6th and featuring Miss Palmer), falls back onto the pop influences of the first single. Branded with cute girls, b&w photography and red balloons, the concept for the album is strong, consistent, memorable.
