DRACO – “PARAISO PERDIDO”
Draco has had many lives, he’s like our boricua Madonna. Formerly known as Robi Rosa, then Draco Cornelius Rosa, and now merely Draco, this one-time Menudo member, whose 1996 album Vagabundo is as dark and weird as it has earned him die-hard fans in Puerto Rico, Brazil and across Latin America, made his fortune producing and co-writing pop hits such as “Livin’ La Vida Loca”, and is now a coffee grower married father of 2 who makes music for fun.
His new album comes out October 20th, is still untitled, but according to fan sites, might be called Esto Es Vida, and might be released on Sony or might be released independently, we don’t know. But fans got this out of him: “this album is more clean. I’ve come out of my dark phase. This is the album which has given me more pleasure.”
More about our confused love-hate relationship with Draco here.
Mysteries of mysteries. Check out his blog/online store/fan site Phantom Vox for inklings and all things Draco.
OMAR GARCIA –
The next big urban promise to come out of Puerto Rico, Omar Garcia took his time, but his self-titled album is finally out. Produced and mixed by Borinquen Beats Deli and Songo Sounds, the team behind Calle 13 and others, Omar attempts to bring some smarts and poetry to hip hop, mixing it with tropical beats and son, salsa and melodies.
“Quien Soy” is by far the best song of the album, with a little help from Cultura Profetica’s Willy Rodriguez.
