While Felix Cartal is from Vancouver, he has previously lived in Glasgow, where he “first started DJ’ing and learned to drink whiskey.” Taking the DIY ethic of the punk rock scene, the producer also finds inspiration in the music of The Beatles, the art of Andy Dixon and the words of Shel Silverstein. His own sound sits close to those of the industry greats of Avicii, Kygo and Calvin Harris.
Speaking of the single, Felix Cartal tells us, “In ‘Mine’ each verse is about a different kind of love. In Verse 1 we have been sixteen and your childhood, Verse 2 a post-college adult and, The Bridge is a more mature adult looking back. We wanted it to be folk-ish in melody and in production to emphasize the focus on it being a narrative, really story-driven. Finally, the drop melody is Sophie singing a clean sweet melody and it being distorted kind of like what happens when one looks back on memories. We often remember them differently as time passes”
