The Empresarios


The Empresarios bring soulful sundrenched summer listening to your doors all year long. This band serves up hot Latin beats mixed with dub, hip-hop, reggae, trip-hop with funk & HOUSE. And it doesn’t stop there – they’ll twist in favela beats, Tropicalia, salsa, samba, reggae, capoeira and carioca funk – so you can lounge from sunset to sundown, in the pool, at the beach house, with a Mojito and warm waves kissing your feet while you bliss out to grooves from Paradise.

Hot tracks like “Siesta,” “Fiesta de Empresarios,” and “Sabor Tropical” cozy up to downtempo and chill out; while “What You Want” and “Sohl” blend modern funk, soul, jazz, broken beats, electro, and all that fits in between. We suggest this album is best filed under lounge and recommend its use as the warm up or the cool down. 

The time has come for the troupe to share their sunny halos, swap strings for synths and bring their sexy sounds and tropical tonic to fans nationwide. Heat up and chill out with the Empresarios. This is Nu Soul/Funk/Trip-Hop/HOUSE high on sun and soul.
