Trinidad & Tobago Soca artist Tele Cruz has moved into high gear with his latest single Sweat. The song is being served as a precursor to the upcoming Carnival season in the twin isle republic. It is already creating waves in Tobago.
Sweat is featured on the bench mark rhythm and produced by 4Sons Entertainment in Sweden. It was mixed and mastered by Madmen Productions out of Trinidad. It is the follow up to Tele Cruz’s most recent hit Sail Away which featured fellow Trinidad &Tobago recording artiste Umi Marcano.
Best known for the single Material Tings which peaked at number two on the RETV MVP Top Ten Countdown in 2010, Tele Cruz has effectively carved out an enviable niche for himself among the newer cadre of Soca music ambassadors. Material Tings also impacted several charts across the Caribbean and even in Europe, where he has a large fan base.
Influenced by music from an early age, it didn’t take long before Cruz understood that music was the biggest passion in life. That passion would eventually become his livelihood. He started out as a dancer in his teenage years and competed in many dance competitions. Later on he would embark on a career as a disc jockey, working out with one of the top sound systems in his native Trinidad & Tobago. His skills as a disc jockey would lead him to entertain millions of persons around the world on a popular cruise line.
Born Tiele Thorne, Cruz’s work over the years with an impressive lineup of recording acts has given him the confidence to take his music career to another level. In 2006 he made his recording debut with Caribbean Affairs which featured pop singer Swedish Maria (Maria Albayrak).
Caribbean Affairs was a huge success especially in Europe where it ranked number three on the Caribbean Countdown in Europe.
