Canadian producer Felix Cartal has no doubt taken the electronic scene by storm. From the release of his first EP titled ‘Skeletons’ after signing with Dim Mak in 2009, he has managed to build a solid foundation for his career and discography to expand and grow, reaching the masses with his unique sound. Going on to become a remix master by remixing the likes of Rihanna, Selena Gomez, ZEDD and countless others, he has also built a strong discography full of original productions which have gone on to become dance music staples around the world. Now, taking another huge leap in his career, Felix Cartal has released his new album ‘Expensive Sounds For Nice People’, and we spoke to him all about it.
Congratulations on the release of your 4th album ‘Expensive Sounds For Nice People’! How does it feel to have the album out into the world after spending so much time working on it?
It’s a relief to have it out after all this time! I had a bit of extra time working on it because of the pandemic and I think it really helped serve it sonically. I’m really proud of what I’ve done.
What would you like people to take away from the album when listening to it? Are there any particular themes or messages you tried to incorporate into it?
All I ask is that people listen to it once from front to back. I love albums, and that’s how I consume all my music. With that in mind I put in a lot of detail to make the transitions and flow feel right. I am constantly trying to find the balance of melodramatic lyrics while still making it hopeful, so I hope that sentiment is what people take away from it.
