After recently getting ranked in DJ Mag Top 100 for the second year in a row (# 73), one of China's most acclaimed artists CARTA celebrates his surely most successful year ever with the astonishing new single “Faking”.
Teaming up with New York DJ/producer Ares Carter, the track is an exciting, vocal house tune, blending subtle future house grooves with melancholic melodies and inviting, R&B tinged vocals. The result is nothing less than dance floor magic, bursting of feelgood energy and jubilant chords, out now on Spinnin' Records.
“I met Richard (Ares Carter) during the Miami Music Week in 2014. We clicked immediately and have been talking about doing a track together since then. Recently, I’ve been getting more and more into house music, and when Richard played me a rough track of his, back in March, I immediately heard what it could become. We continued to work on it together, then bounced it back and forward after I was in Shanghai. ‘Faking' has got a very special place in my heart because I haven't done anything this radio friendly since 2016. I never wanted to put out a radio track just for the sake of doing it, so it had to feel right. With this record, it felt right from the start, very happy and proud to present ‘Faking’!” He shared with Billboard Radio China.
2018 has turned into his claim to fame. CARTA has been performing at major festivals all over the world, including Ultra Music Festival Miami, Tomorrowland, Creamfields UK and EDC Japan, as well as major gigs in his home country like Creamfields Shanghai, League Of Legends Chinese Championship Ceremony and, closing off the year later this month, at the mainstage of the ISY Music Festival, alongside headliners like Axwell & Ingrosso, Armin van Buuren and Don Diablo.
