For those who aren’t familiar with the producer “Perreke” I’m here to tell you, yes you are. Many of us don’t read the captions or the fine print on the cds or mp3 downloads. We just remember the lyrics, the music beats that make you dance in your seat, or the character logo on the cover.
Perreke, one of the most successful producers in the urban market has been the man behind many top hits singles released from Zion, Franco, Farruko, J Alvarez, and Archangel. As a production team member of ‘Flow Music’ an established Puerto Rican record label founded by renowned producer DJ Nelson, Perreke was able to creatively utilized his toned techniques in the studio through composition and sound effects permitting these reggeeatoneros to freely express themselves in the studio with no holds bar.
His ability to blend the musical influences of Jamaican dancehall and Trinidadian soca with those of Latin America, such as salsa, bomba, Latin American hip hop, and electronica give him a leverage most other producers dont possess.
While it takes influences from hip hop and Jamaican dance hall, his urban Latin rhythmic sounds become contagious to almost all genres of music. It’s not precisely the Hispanic or Latin American version of either of these genres; it’s the beat and rhythm.
Perreke recently released his new compilation album ‘The Makinaria’. Though I have every track on repeat on my Iphone, my favorite would have to be as of now, J Alvarez ‘Las Horas’. Which one is your favorite. This is truly an album you have to get.
