Tortas, Tequila, and Bass
As a glass of Clase Azul reposado vibrates across a studio desk in Helotes, Texas, Carlton Zeus (aka Carlos Servando Cavazos) replies to a text with a picture of a torta covered in melted cheese. While the full context was never explained, Zeus confirmed the song playing as he bolted for his phone was produced by multi-platinum producer Happy Perez whose production credits include Miguel, Halsey, Khalid, Lana Del Rey, and Travis Scott.
Carlton Zeus' catchy seductive sound blurs between the line of genres: 90's tejano, EDM, cumbia, hip hop, and trap. His recipe is simple, "Create a vibe that will outlast an era. If you got good friends, they'll still love you if you f*ck it up. You probably will." Zeus says.
