The Empresarios have had a busy year in the studio making new music and a bunch of exciting videos. The group plans to end the year strong with the Cambumbeo Remix EP, which includes four banging remixes of Empresarios originals. This release is a truly global effort as the Empresarios tapped some of their favorite remixers around the world. Austrian legend Shantisan has remixed the title track, while Greek DJ Inko, Australian Omegaman and Orlando, Florida based Stereo 77 all reworked Con Las Manos Arriba. Prepare to take a musical journey that starts in the Caribbean and ends in the hottest nightclubs and dancehalls imaginable. The kings of late night cool have arrived.
Noche De Cambumbeo has been reworked by Shantisan into a very smooth groove that will get even the most stubborn heads nodding. The steady booming bassline is perfectly suited for the floating melodica, crisp percussion and intricate guitar lines. You can hear Shantisan’s deep well of experience come shining through on this Tropicaliente lounge burner. Next up is DJ Inko’s reinterpretation of Con Las Manos Arriba and he takes it straight to the dancefloor with a relentless 4-4 workout. Dubbed out effects and stutter-step percussion create the mood and when the drop hits, you can feel your ass begin to shake. DJ Inko is a busy and hard working club dj who knows how to get the crowd moving, and he has brought that sensibility to his remix in fine style.
Hailing from the growing Puerto Rican community in Orlando, Florida is Stereo 77 who has also remixed Con Las Manos Arriba. While also going in a house direction, this is a true “Ricanstruction” as Stereo 77 calls his remixes, so get ready for a heavy percussion section with some tropical bass throw in for good measure. In a style familiar to the Empresarios, Stereo 77 is skilled in fusing together a variety of Caribbean styles and influences, so turn this one up loud and get down to it. Closing out the package is Omegaman’s remix of Con Las Manos Arriba, and he went in a different direction than the other two producers. The vibe is throttled down a bit, the congas come front and center and Omegaman has infused the track with some laid-back breakbeats. Omegaman’s chilled out breaks remix is fresh and funky, sure to be a favorite with DJs and radio stations worldwide.

The Empresarios stormed into summer with their four track Cambumbeo EP which was well received on radio stations and dance floors worldwide. The Empresarios showcased some new heavy bass, beats and trap flavor on that EP and are now following up with a Latin Trap single. Ten Cuidao is the newest song from Washington, DC’s Empresarios and it showcases the lyrical talent of lead singers Francisco “Frankie 40” Rosario and Felix “El Doble” Perez. Watch yourself as the bassline drops and the Empresarios bring you another Summer scorcher.
Ten Cuidao uses spaced out trap beats to build a glitched-up bed for the Spanish hip-hop vocals of Frankie 40 and El Doble to great effect. Crank the volume and pump the bass, after a brief intro the beats build up into a dubby stutter frenzy and half-time staccato. The spooky mood is eery with synth washes and digital effects sprinkled throughout the track. The Empresarios vocalists really drive the tune, riding the moody bass and rapping to the crisp beats and breaks.
The boys are back with some rugged sounds that have enough boom bap to satisfy even the most jaded hip-hop heads. Ten Cuidao is the sound of the summer, bringing that digital Boricua flavor from the streets to your stereo. An instrumental version is also included for the DJs, and stay tuned for some Cambumbeo Remixes coming soon too.

Since launching their own label, Empresarios Musica, the Washington, DC collective of musicians known as the Empresarios have kept themselves very busy. In addition to releasing their album “The Vibes”, the Empresarios released a string of remixes as well as The Vibes Remixed LP. They have taken their show across the country, playing at La Cita Bar in Los Angeles and the Joshua Tree Music Festival. In 2017, they also performed at several popular Washington, D.C. festivals including the second annual National Cannabis Festival, the Funk Parade on historic U Street and the H Street Festival. Of course, the Empresarios have been busy in the studio working on some new music with a fresh sound, and are proud to announce the release of the brand new Cambumbeo EP.
The EP kicks off with Noche de Cambumbeo, this sultry tune sets the mood for this musical journey. The song showcases the Empresarios’ strengths as it blends a fusion of hip-hop, trap, dub and more. The melodica floats throughout the track as the synths drive the song forward over crisp beats. This is the song you and your squad pre-party to as you get ready for a night out and set the vibe for the night ahead. On each new release the Empresarios have explored new musical directions and influences, Le Encanta Hacerlo breaks new ground for the Empresarios with its red-hot Latin hip-hop and trap sound. This tune takes its time to wind through the verses as the MCs deliver the goods over heavy synths with trap beats. Whether you are cruising down the highway or slow dancing in the club, this track exudes irresistible sexiness from start to finish.
But don’t forget, we came to party! The Empresarios take it way back to the 1970’s when Spanish Harlem was the place to be, so put your hands up. Con Las Manos Arriba is the party tune of the release as the Empresarios flex their dancefloor skills over the heavy percussion and trumpet on the track. This song really captures the tropicaliente vibe the Empresarios are known for and will surely be a summertime anthem booming at all the pool parties. The Empresarios continue their explorations into Latin hip-hop and trap styles with Orgullo, an urban fusion track that delivers the good. The trumpets and melodica are back, this time sitting perfectly over stuttered trap beats which frame the Spanish rap perfectly. This is a very smooth tune, so sit back and soak it up. It’s time to put your pride to the side so we can do what we came to do!
The Cambumbeo EP is the latest installment of fresh new sounds from the view of the Empresarios tropicaliente sound. Rich with a range of sounds from hip-hop and dub to boogaloo, trap and more, these four tracks are coming out just in time to sizzle all summer long.
