Vancouver producer Felix Cartal burst onto the electronic music scene in 2009 with Skeleton, a 4-track EP of hard-hitting grind-house beats and sweltering synths. Since then, a tireless touring schedule and a breakneck pace of release after release has cemented Felix as one of Canada’s finest producers, and a serious contender on the world stage.
In preparation for his new record Life Online, Felix Cartal is sharing a music video for “With You,” a pulsating progressive-house track, aided by the airy vocals of Natalie Angiuli. The visual depicts what looks to be a pretty decent summer road trip, complete with beach hangs, ice cream, and an inflatable donut, but Felix offers another interpretation. “I realize a lot of the music I’ve made has been made feasible because of connections with people I’ve never actually met,” he told Complex. “And I think that’s a really interesting thing, to be able to participate in people’s lives without actually meeting them in person. ‘With You’ is a standard love song lyrically, but I wanted to include this social media element, that proves how people watching online can participate in other people’s relationships based on what they broadcast.”
