Led by Javier Miranda, the Empresarios mix a blend of Latin beats that culminate into an explosion of tropical rhythms guaranteed to start a party. The Washington D.C.-based band incorporates salsa, cumbia, house and reggae to achieve their own “tropicaliente” sound as each DJ adds their own creativity to the mix. Their album title track “Sabor Tropical” has even been featured on EA Sports’ FIFA 2012 video game.
Less than two years ago the Empresarios hit the road, starting parties here and there in support of their debut album. Now, the party gets revamped with the upcoming release of their sophomore album, El Sonido Mágico, due November 13 via Fort Knox Recordings. The 13-track album includes their signature “tropicaliente” style with plenty of horns, percussion and melodica while featuring the voices of Frankie Rosado and Felix Perez. The track “Volume” heats things up with Latin disco house while “Quinto Nivel” steps it up with electro-cumbia and “Rompan Fila” brings it back down with its reggae beats.
