KZN-based Cantrel releases his new single ‘Panic’
Cantrel recently released a new single called ‘Panic’. The track features local rapper Velosity and vocalist Lauren Laing. The single was mixed and mastered in Germany, and the Alternative Electronic Pop song is a powerful release from the local star and grabs the listener from the first few seconds, sure to turn them into a fan by the end of the song.
I asked the man behind the music a few questions:

So, you recently released your new single Panic. What is it about and who worked with you on it?
The Single Panic is about the everyday Anxiety & Panic we face in the music industry & Life today (in the verses) and the Choruses paints more of a happy uplifting feeling taking you away from too much ‘Panic’ and makes you feel good and happy.
Awesome! So, who do you make music for – Who listens to Cantrel?
With the fusion of Alternative Pop, Electronic & Hip Hop, Cantrel caters for a broader spectrum of musical ears. So it’s not pigeon holed into one distinctive sound but rather a sound of his own.
