Sega Bodega has linked up with Safety Trance (a.k.a. Cardopusher) on a new track.

The new single is called Arena! and marks Sega Bodega’s first new music of 2023 following production for the likes of Shygirl (for the Mercury-nominated Nymph) and former Crack Magazine cover stars Caroline Polachek and Eartheater.

Speaking on the collaboration, Sega Bodega said: “I came round to hang at Luis’ flat in Barcelona one afternoon and we jammed, this one idea that we started became Arena!. I love his drums so much and his sense of rhythm, so to be able to work with him was such a gift!”

While Safety Trance – real name Luis Garban – said: “In summer 2022, Salv [Sega Bodega] happened to be in Barcelona for a few days so I invited him to my home studio to hang out. We showed each other some ongoing projects we were working on at that time and after having a great and inspiring listening session we started the first bits of Arena! Salv came up with these beautiful synth hooks and I started to work on the rhythm part. We knew immediately we had something special that kept evolving over the next months.”
