Tresor signs with international label

Breakout artist Tresor today announced that he has signed a worldwide deal with international record label Ultra Records.

The deal includes the release and distribution of his music to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia as well as the Benelux region. Ultra Records has produced a string of recent international hits including the likes of Omi “Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)”, Kygo Stole The Show & Deorro x Chris Brown Five More Hours.

“I am excited beyond words with the deal we have just signed and I can’t wait for the world to hear the music,” Tresor said in a statement. “As an African artist I’ve always believed that we make world class music right here at home and I am looking forward to this new global adventure potentially opening new doors for African musicians. I believe the world needs our sound now more than ever before.”

Earlier this month, Tresor released his debut album, VII. The album – which he has worked on for the past seven years and features collaborations with AKA, Beatenberg, Khuli Chana and The Soil – opened at #2 on the iTunes Pop Albums Chart in South Africa, to overwhelmingly positive reactions from fans and critics alike.

Tresor’s Mount Everest (Freddy Verano Remix) music video, a #1 dance airplay hit in Italy and a song that reached #1 on the Global Shazam trending list, is approaching 800 000 views online.
