On the back of the release of ‘No Sleep,’ Dim Mak regular Felix Cartal and Los Angeles singer Natalie Angiuli re-unite for round two with the aptly titled ‘Lullaby.’ Embracing his more down tempo mindset, the emotive chord progressions and Angiuli’s tender vocals make for a rather divergent instalment in his already eclectic studio output. Armed with solitary leads and eerie atmospheric developments amid its gradually developing energy, ‘Lullaby’ proves a confident step away from the norms of Dance music.
With his second studio album, ‘Different Faces’, still doing the rounds, Dim Mak regular Felix Cartal hits back with a new original release for the Steve Aoki imprint. Extending on the magic that has seen him gain considerable recognition from across the board, Cartal teams up alongside Natalie Angiuli for a self-fulfilling romp of distored lead work, frantic melodic peaks, and the tender vocal stylings of the Los Angeles singer. We may have heard it all before, but oversubscribed sub genre remains aurally stimulating in the hands of Felix Cartal.
Over the past year, John Dahlback has recurringly shown he knows his way around the drum lines with his discerning record output’s. Searing hot off the back from his recent single release of One Last Ride on Mutants and Big Beat, the Swedish mastermind continues to shew as he instals himself on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records with the remix on Felix Cartal’s newest single, entitled The Joker. Following a release history that yet today stand unconquered, constituting Dahlback’s pacific yet hard-hitting characteristic sounds, he frees a new, fluctuating offering. Clearly dominated by an unerring array of drums, this hot off the press-remix on The Joker has also got a fair amount of influences from Dutch house to make it a fulfilled club composition.
Both as part of MyBack with Albin Myers and as an ever rising solo artist has Dahlback succeeded in becoming one of the more outright producers to date and with recent releases like You’re In My Heart, Senses and the remixes of Big, Invisible. His newest production is now out on iTunes.
