Hey Felix! It has been a while (too casual?). It is about time we rounded out this week’s weekend releases with a possible familiar face. This time we cruise on over to Capitol Records to check in with Felix Cartal, who provided us with his latest release “Hold Tight”. Felix has been busy, with multiple standalone productions with other producers including successful producer Kaskade. Felix will also be touring internationally so everyone will be able to see if sometime soon. Due to his most recent success, Felix has even garnered over 45 million streams over on his Spotify! Clearly, Felix, you are doing something right.
Since we put out quite a bit of content for such a small site like ours, we like to compare the tracks and how they stand up to each other. Felix’s “Hold Tight” takes the same kind of focus that he brought us in “Get What You Give”, showcasing the power of unity the electronic music offers in a time of division and crisis. While there is only one vocal lyric, the titular “Hold Tight”, Felix is able to convey that one word into a feeling of euphoria.
I liked the Hold Tight phrase, which I sampled from “Get What You Give“, as a theme. I think embraces are very powerful, and the mood of the song has this sort of unresolved feeling – like we are all searching for a moment of togetherness. – Felix Cartal
Make sure you give “Hold Tight” a full listen below:
