Back in February of 2019, Canadian artists Lights and Felix Cartal teamed up to release their single “Love Me.” The summer-ready collaboration is now officially certified Gold in Canada, and the pair were surprised with custom plaques by Cadence Music Group in Toronto ahead of Felix Cartal’s highly anticipated set at Bud Light Dreams Festival.
Vancouver-based DJ and electronic producer Felix Cartal was surprised by Cadence Music Group with his first Canadian Gold Single Award plaque in Toronto this week for “Get What You Give,” his unique take on the 90’s New Radicals hit.
He shared his excitement for receiving the plaque with fans through Twitter and Instagram. Following his JUNO nominations, he tweeted:
Wow…. a gold record last night, and now two nominations at @TheJUNOAwards !!! best dance recording and producer of the year. absolutely speechless…. craziest 24 hours of my life right now. THANK YOU
Felix Cartal was a special guest at Tuesday’s 2018 JUNO Awards nomination press conference in Toronto, which found him with two nominations for the track in the Dance Recording of the Year and Producer of The Year categories.
