Tresor collaborates with Beatenberg
Tresor collaborates with Beatenberg to create their Aphrodite!
TRESOR announces the track list and featured artists for his upcoming 3rd studio album, Nostalgia, along with the release of the album’s second single, “Aphrodite”, which is a collaboration with Cape Town trio Beatenberg.
The cleverly titled Nostalgia takes the listener on a journey through TRESOR’s musical upbringing, and the 13 track album also features some of the biggest names in the game such as Super Mega AKA; multi-award winning trio The Soil; Kenyan Pop group Sauti Sol; contemporary singer Msaki; Kwaito rapper Kwesta; DRC singer Lokua Kanza; Afro Pop group Mafikizolo and Beatenberg.
I am truly thrilled to share this collaboration with my Beatenberg brothers. The song was written and produced in Cape Town throughout summer last year. Matthew and I wanted to create a musical piece that reflects the sounds that we both grew up listening to. We both love Greek mythology and history, so we wanted to play with idea of falling deeply in love with Aphrodite, an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. We had so much fun making this song and I think we created something truly magical. Excited to share it with the world
I am grateful to have been able to work with Tresor again; I’ve learned a lot from him and it’s always a pleasure to hang out and make music together. This song has been ‘in the works’ for a while and I’m very fond of it. I remember driving on the highway at night after a session listening to the rough version and feeling a particular way. I looked forward then to when other people would get to hear it – now that’s happening and I’m very glad
Nostalgia is set to drop in January 2019 on all music platforms.
