In January 2011 Fort Knox Recordings released the debut album by DC’s own Empresarios, entitled ‘Sabor Tropical.’ The album received a great reception, getting great reviews from the press and fans alike. Following the strength and amazing sounds of the first EP, Fort Knox Recordings is proud to present the second EP of remixes from ‘Sabor Tropical.’

The second EP of remixes definitely has an ear for the fresh, new ‘Modern Global’ sound of music making a big impact at the moment. In his first release on Fort Knox Recordings, Zeb the Spy from Cairo delivers a beautiful dubbed out, downtempo remix of Siesta. Siesta then gets flipped in the other direction as the Empresarios put their own high energy house sound on their Flight 1102 remix as well. The legend behind Wonderwheel Recordings and Turntables on the Hudson, Nickodemus, remixes the already strong instrumental tune Cumbia into a massive, timeless classic.

The Empresarios anthem, Pereo Intenso, gets a serious reworking from three producers on three different continents. First up is NYC legend DJ Sabo with a huge, funky cumbia remix that gives the tune even more Latin music credentials. Australia’s breaks don Omegaman decides to slow down the beats and dub the effects in his remix, right in time for summer, rooftops and beaches everywhere. Rounding out this group is Belgium’s own Merdan Taplak who brings his signature sound with some funky drum’n’bass beats and a real Balkan fiesta!

DJ Sabo is the only producer featured on this project to turn in two remixes, and both are just amazing as the other. Enlisting the help of Argentine producer Dario Boente, the two have created a salsa masterpiece with heavy bass and an irresistible beat. Straight from Austin, Texas is DJ Manny and his Los Cosmicos Bandidos Remix of Negrita Linda. They have totally dropped the bottom out and delivered an unpredictable slab of Latin funk from the future! The final remix is by Kinky Electric Noise, whose tropical bass remix is a true reflection of his Colombian background mixed with sounds from his home city of Miami. This tune will get the ladies on the dancefloor!

With sounds ranging from cumbia to house, funk, drum’n’bass, salsa and dub, and some tropical bass thrown in, Sabor Tropical Remixed EP 2 raises the bar once again, showcasing the Fort Knox Five in a new light.
