Empresarios – Verano Caliente Mix (June 2012) MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

Washington DC’s Empresarios have been putting out regular Soundcloud mixes for awhile now and they are always chock full of groovy, funky tunes. It’s summer too, so let’s funk it up with the latest mix the band are labeling the “Verano Caliente Mix”. The band’s personal style ranges from salsa and cumbia to house, all dancey and all steeped in deep funk. Did I mention this new mix is super funky? Well, it is and is perhaps their longest mix to date. In addition to new and exclusive music from the Empresarios, this mix also features voice-overs, introductions and commentary by Empresarios bandleader Javier Miranda. Miranda can also be heard providing live conga augmentation sporadically on this mix. You can set this thing to repeat and power an entire Saturday night summer party. Line up the mojitos and call your friends. Best of all, the whole mix is downloadable. Full tracklist below the jump.
