Washington D.C.-based Tropicaliente group Empresarios brings an exclusive free download of “Bittersweet Samba (Empresarios Duplate Special)” by Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass. This update of Herb Alpert’s classic brings additional live percussion to the mix thanks to Empresarios’ bandleader Javier Miranda. Honoring their title of kings of Tropicaliente, the Empresarios combine salsa, dub, cumbia, house and reggae in their mixes, creating a unique sound with loud horns, percussion and a great melody.
Since the release of their debut album Sabor Tropical, the Empresarios have gained great success, allowing them to work on refining their sound in new remixes and EPs. Some of their newest releases include “Salsa de Gala,” “Volume” and “7th Street Groove,” all from their new album El Sonido Mágico, which mixes the Empresarios’ signature rhythmic style.
