Download: “Blame It Remix” mp3 by AJ Castillo

Local Austinite, AJ Castillo, is taking the Tejano music scene to another level with his unique blend of urban accordion beats. After only seven months into his solo career, he was asked to perform at the 2009 Tejano Music Awards and a year later he returned to accept the award as Best New Artist. With 14 years of accordion playing experience, it is no surprise Castillo was named Tejano Academy’s “Best Accordion Player” and “Best Emerging Artist” in 2010.

After two full years of success, Castillo released his third album, The MixTape, last week. The album features the mix of Tejano music with other genres as well as special guests. Sergio Castillo (AJ’s brother) lends his vocals to a Cumbia song while Stefani Montiel collaborates on the “Blame It Remix.” Castillo will make six stops in Austin as he tours in Texas the rest of the year.
