i feel electrified, sunlight in my eyes , let’s make this day be something beautiful

We all know I messed up before when I slept on Felix Cartel’s epic summer jam “Tonight” so I’m not gonna let that happen again! cartel is dropping a set of fresh remixes and I jumped on that premiere like a horny dog at a BBQ. That Botnek version is my jam how it gets all spacey and thin before swinging back through for all kinds of weird frog-mouth sounds! Autoerotique gets down in the dirt for you bass fiends. Hot Mouth kicks a grimy disco funk and Jay Fay goes for Transformers synchronized Read more

[STREAM] Felix Cartal – “Tonight (feat. Maja Ivarsson from The Sounds)”

for me it’s obvious, i see the two of us, but only you can tell me what the future holds

  • Who: Felix Cartal
  • What: Big bounce party dance, like Martin Solveig, Dragonette, Pance Party
  • Where: Vancouver, Canada + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: New album Different Faces is out now.
  • Why: I was offered the premiere of this song a while back but in my post-SXSW haze I didn’t catch how good it was and passed. Thanks to TBE reader Jayo I gave it another spin and instantly realized my mistake. The Sounds‘ resident hottie, Maja, lends her sweet and sultry vocals to Felix’s booty shaking beat. Mr. Cartal himself said it best though:

To work with Maja of The Sounds was truly an honour. They are one of my favourite bands and some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Maja has one of the purest voices in pop and makes this song exactly what I wanted it to be: Pure uplifting pop music.
