Empresarios - Morena b/w The Vibes (7" vinyl)
Title: Morena b/w The Vibes ft. Ephniko
Label: Boogieburg Recordings
Release Date: 03/16/18
The Empresarios sound is best described as “Tropicaliente”, and that is the vibe that the Washington, DC-based band brings to the stage as well. Empresarios bandleader Javier Miranda has been active in the music scene for the last 20 years recording and touring with acts like Thievery Corporation, Fort Knox Five, and See-I. After launching his own solo project, Javier would go on to start Empresarios Musica, a home for his projects.
“Morena” is an upbeat party tune showcasing a lively mix of sunny Caribbean flavors aimed to get people on the dancefloor. “The Vibes” is a spanglish hip-hop reggae party anthem featuring global funk selector and emcee Ephniko (originally from Colombia and currently in Miami) laying down some fresh rhymes alongside the Empresarios. Boogieburg's fifth vinyl release is housed in a hand-stamped antique green “old style” sleeve.
