Felix Cartal is feeling himself right now. He just released a beautiful original track called “Hold Tight,” and he’s following it up almost immediately with a catchy, poppy bit of sass.
It’s a remix of TOKiMONSTA‘s collab with MNDR, “We Love.” The original plays like an aimless stroll through an easy-going fantasy. It’s laid back and pleasant, like a perfect Sunday afternoon, but Cartal started his day with a cold brew nitro and he’s moving this party to the dance floor.
“I have always been a fan of everything TOKi has done,” Cartal tells Billboard. “She remixed one of my songs a few years ago and I finally got to return the favor on this beautiful record with MNDR.”
His version is a little bouncier, brighter, and harder with the funk. Synthetic horns boom, vinyl crackles pop and drum line snares move this record through a series of phases and future waves. MNDR’s cool vocals tie it all together with a shiny, catchy bow. This is definitely something you’ll want in your weekend playlist.
Cartal’s remix of this TOKiMONSTA jam is out everywhere Friday on Young Art Records but you can catch listen here first, exclusively via Billboard Dance.
