Last year was a big deal for Felix Cartal: he was included in Billboard's 13 Dance Artists Who Dominated 2017 feature, and his Spotify channel now has over 75 million streams. His brand of dance-inflected pop might remind you a bit of the exuberance of Pharrell Williams. It is the casual sound of a happy day in the life of 3 besties in a golf-cart.
The bouncy groove sits right at the excited-heartbeat of 120 beats per minute, so this song will immediately feel both entraining and familiar. Throw in some party-all-day language, and a few sparkle-sticks, and the happiness is contagious: this new single from one of Vancouver’s top producers should give your mood a boost.
“Monday is my Saturday
we don’t worry about anything, no
ooh, this my mood
every week is a holiday”— Felix Cartal
This video captures the brilliance and positivity of Cartal's music, and may forever change the way you think about Mondays.
Felix Cartal has saved the best single from his recent album "Next Season" for last: he has finally released the video for "Mood," and you're going to want to dive right in.
