Dim Mak veteran Felix Cartal will be releasing a 13-track full-length effort on March 27th titled Different Faces. I’m very excited to bring you today an exclusive first listen for of the first song off the album, a collaboration with DFA 1979 member Sebastien Grainger titled H.U.N.T.
It follows an epic cinematic album intro track – an area Different Faces occasionally meanders to – and sets up the feel of the upbeat dance record. With H.U.N.T., Felix marries his sensibilities as a veteran electro producer with the accessibility of Grainger’s voice. The result is an upbeat dance single ready for the radio as much as it is the summer festivals.
In Felix’ own words:
The first track on the record, features an extremely powerful vocal by Sebastien Grainger. I have always been a huge fan of Death From Above 1979 so to be able to work with Sebastien was amazing. Really wanted to embody some overdriven bass that I know compliments his voice so well. H.U.N.T. isn’t an abbreviation, it’s just spelling out the word HUNT with emphasis. Dance pop catchiness meets punk rock cool.
The album launches on March 27th, but you can pre-order it on iTunes now.
