FELIX CARTAL AND ELOHIM LINK UP FOR NEW SINGLE ‘NOTHING GOOD COMES EASY’
OUT NOW VIA PHYSICAL PRESENTS
(Toronto, ON – February 11, 2022) – Platinum dance electronic producer Felix Cartal returns with a highly-anticipated collaboration with electronic producer / singer-songwriter Elohim, ‘Nothing Good Comes Easy’. The Vancouver-based stalwart’s latest original production directly follows up his 2021 full-length Expensive Sounds For Nice People, in addition to Elohim’s most recent feature via Lights’ ‘Real Thing’ released at the end of last year. Out now via Physical Presents, ‘Nothing Good Comes Easy’ is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
The indie-dance track begins with a pulsating bass paired alongside a hushed vocal cut courtesy of Elohim. Her profound lyricism tells the story of two strained lovers striving to fight for the love they share with one another, perfectly brought to life through a plethora of hard-hitting bass drops. Emotionally charged throughout its entirety, it effectively pulls at the heartstrings of the listener leaving one wanting even more sonic magic from the inimitable duo. Overall, ‘Nothing Good Comes Easy’ is a prime release set to kick off the new year, and serves as a noteworthy standout track for both artists.

“Elohim has this incredible voice that feels beautifully intimate, it makes you feel like she’s in the room with you. Her tone was something I wanted to work with throughout the song, so I fought very hard to keep the whole thing feeling minimal. For that reason, the entire drop is built out of random vowel sounds from her voice, in an effort to keep that intimate feeling alive. I’m always trying to create production that best compliments the vocalist and keep the original emotion intact. This track is haunting and I love it.” – Felix Cartal

“I knew this top line had to go to a very special producer. When I wrote it, I belted it out from my heart. It needed production with as much heart as the lyrics and melody and Felix absolutely was the perfect match. His production elevated the entire song. While writing nothing good comes easy the lyrics poured out of me. When you write from the heart that’s when the magic is ignited” – Elohim
