Afropop Premier- Secretaria (Empresarios Dubplate Especial)
Fresh EXCLUSIVE tunes for your Monday morning! For those who aren't already hip to their party-rocking sound, Washington DC's Empresarios are serious about maximizing their dance-floor impact. To do that, they're all about mixing classic pan-Latin grooves with the kinds of beats necessary to keep pace with, say, Timbaland. (Woulda said Beyonce, but after last night?) Anyways, we've been fans for a while, and in fact, featured them in our recent show on the Latin sounds of 2013. For their latest track, the group remixed the cumbia "La Secretaria" by the Los Hermanos Flores. Javier Miranda of the group said "We wanted to pick one of the more traditional cumbia artists who we grew up listening to, and Los Hermanos Flores are huge in the old school.  La Secretaria is a dope song and we figured we could remix it, make it more modern and introduce a whole new set of listeners to these guys" Give the remix a spin! and catch the original HERE. And, if you dig it, be sure to catch the group live! This week, they are playing: Thursday February 7th - Thirsty Moose - Portsmouth, NH Saturday February 9th - Jammin' Java - Vienna, VA
