Felix Cartal and Lights release new song, “Love Me” which is a pop synth song timed with Valentine’s Day release. Lyrics include, “I can’t get you off my mind. Why do I keep wasting my time. Man you make it easy for me. Why can’t I make you love me?” This song is light, playful with a cutting edge, electronic feel.
Taelor Deitcher who goes by Felix Cartal, is a Canadian DJ and electronic dance music producer. He released his first EP Skeleton in 2009 and three full-length albums, Popular Music, Different Faces and Next Season. Deitcher has toured with Wolfgang Gartner, MSTRKRFT, and Bloody Beetroots. Deitcher has collaborated with vocalists in the dance scene such as Sebastien Grainger of Death from Above 1979, Maja Ivarsson of The Sounds and Johnny Whitney of The Blood Brothers.
Deitcher comments on his collaboration with Lights, “The thing that made this collaboration so special is that we’re literally the only two people involved in this song. I wrote an instrumental, Lights wrote an initial lyric idea, we refined the chorus and arrangement together, then she tracked her vocals herself and I did all the production myself. It’s just us two creating every single piece of this song. A true collab. I love how it turned out.”
Lights Poxleitner-Bokan (born Valerie Anne Poxleitner) is a Canadian musician known for her gold-certified albums The Listening and Siberia and singles “Drive My Soul”, “February Air”, “Ice”, “Second Go”, “Toes”, and “Up We Go”.
