| URBAN HEAT is the first and best album to give you a flava of the Reggaeton scene, featuring the top Reggaeton artists alongside the biggest names in Hip Hop, R&B and Dancehall. |
Following on from the massive European Top 10 hit Daddy Yankee “Gasolina”- Reggaeton has made a place for itself in the UK scene. This new sound has come along way since its beginnings in Puerto Rico in the early 90’s. Developed by local artists with their own unique blend of hip hop and dancehall and their own culture and lyrics, the music is now selling millions of units to both the hurban (Hispanic urban) and Anglo markets in the US. The top producers are now the most wanted remixers for some of the world’s biggest hip hop and R&B stars.
