This spring San Jose, California-based duo Raul y Mexia – sons of Hernan Hernandez of the legendary Los Tigres del Norte – celebrated the release of their debut album Arriba Y Lejos through Nacional Records. The unique fusion of sounds on the album come from Grammy-nominated producer Antonio “Toy” Hernandez, better known as Toy Selectah, who steered the mashed-up pop, rap, Mexican- Latin dance sounds and produced the majority of songs in this 10-track album.
Raul y Mexia made their first Austin appearance at this year’s Pachanga Latino Music Festival earlier this month. Austin Vida’s editor-in-chief teamed up with our friends at Blastro2 for a video interview with the duo. Learn about how they feel being the son of Mexican legend, becoming their own music group and joining the Nacional Records family.
