Felix Cartal has released a new version of the 1988 classic, “You Get What You Give”, and we are loving it!
Canadian producer Felix Cartal has been on fire this past year and his most recent release follows suit. “Get What You Give” revives a classic 1998 New Radicals track, “You Get What You Give”, by granting the original song a complete EDM makeover. Cartal’s version captures the feel-good essence of the original by incorporating the same catchy lyrics and uses the hook as a smooth build up to the track’s eventual drop. Incorporating chopped up vocals and a combination of hard kicks and claps, Cartal creates a nostalgic track that makes you want to keep hitting that replay button.
This release is an impressive follow-up to his equally catchy singles, “Falling Down” and “Drifting Away”, but the risk of altering a classic is not lost on Cartal.
“This song has been important to me ever since I heard it,” he explains. “It’s one of those songs that feels familiar the first time you hear it, the soundtrack to your life that you didn’t know you were missing. At first, I was tentative to put my own take on it, do you really touch a classic? But I kept thinking about this song nearly 20 years after it came out and… I had to try. If I can showcase how important they were to me in a new format to the next generation then I’ll feel like it was worth it.”
