The award-winning TRESOR has just appeared for the first time through Ultra Music, with Spada delivering a stunning remix of his highly popular “Never Let Me Go.” We spoke to the South African pop singer to hear more about the new partnership.
How have you found working with Ultra Music so far? What have you learnt?
Working with Ultra has been incredible so far, I love the passion and dedication they put in their craft. I have learnt that building a global success story takes time and good team-work. That’s why we have partnered with Ultra to take the music to all corners of the globe.
SPADA has just remixed “Never Let Me Go” – what do you like most about his work on it?
I love what Spada did with the percussive African elements and drums. His production gave the song an uplifting summer feel!
Can you talk us through your writing and recording process? What are some of your biggest musical influences?
Mostly I write on guitar, lay the first demo down and then build the music around the core of the song. My musical influences are Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Fela Kuti, Michael Jackson, Coldplay and Ray Charles… just to name a few.
Did you grow up knowing you wanted to make music or were you inspired later on?
I was introduced to guitar when I was 8 years old, and I never looked back since! Music has been part of my whole life.
What do you have coming up for the rest of 2016?
I am working on new music for my next record and some new collaborations that we’ll share soon.
What other producers/artists do you have on repeat at the moment?
I am enjoying Rihanna, Anti ,Calvin Harris, Kaytranada, BreakBot, Daft Punk, Bruno Mars and Labyrinth….
