The EP starts off with Bailando and Bestia, which are both built around infectious Latin house grooves peppered with percussion, horns and electronic elements. These two tracks are guaranteed to pack the dancefloor. Following the frenzy of the first two tracks is the laid back, sweaty tropical vibe of Cumbia Salvaje, which takes a traditional cumbia straight into the 21st Century. Closing out the EP is Sentimiento, an instant classic in the nu-salsa style of their hit track Sabor Tropical, paying homage to Nuyorican and Fania influences.
The second installment of Sabor Tropical Remixed represents the new “Modern Global” sound of music that is making a big impact at the moment. In his first release on Fort Knox Recordings, Zeb the Spy from Cairo delivers a dubbed out, downtempo house remix of Siesta. Siesta then gets flipped in the other direction, as the Empresarios put their own high energy house sound on their Flight 1102 remix. The legend behind Wonderwheel Recordings, Nickodemus, remixes Cumbia into an even more massive, timeless classic.
The Empresarios anthem Pereo Intenso gets a serious reworking from three producers from three different continents. First up is NYC legend DJ Sabo with a huge, funky cumbia remix that gives the tune even more Latin music credentials. Australia’s breaks don Omegaman slows down the breakbeats and dub the effects in his remix, right in time for summer, rooftops & beaches everywhere. Rounding out this group is Belgium’s own Merdan Taplak who brings his signature sound with some funky drum’n’bass – a real Balkan fiesta!
DJ Sabo is the only producer featured on this project to turn in two amazing remixes. Enlisting the help of Argentine producer Dario Boente, the two have created a salsa masterpiece with heavy bass and an irresist- ible beat. Straight from Austin, Texas is DJ Manny and his Los Cosmico Bandidos remix of Negrita Linda. They have totally dropped the bottom out and created an unpredictable slab of Latin funk from the future! The tropical bass remix from Kinky Electric Noise showcases his Colombian background mixed with sounds from his home city of Miami, this tune will get the ladies on the dancefloor!
With sounds ranging from cumbia to house, funk, drum’n’bass, salsa and dub, and some tropical bass thrown in, Sabor Tropical Remixed EP 2 raises the bar once again, showcasing the Empresarios in a new light.
