UK-Colombian producer Florentino releases his second EP for Mixpak, Ilimitado, with 5 dancefloor-ready tracks uniting UK Club music with latin pop and reggaeton.
Following previous vocal collaborations with Ms Nina and Bad Gyal on his EP Fragmentos, Ilimitado shows Florentino broadening his scope to link with exciting latinx underground voices from across the world. Brazilian baile funk star MC Bin Laden meets Brazilian born/Barcelona based MC Buzzz on grime-meets-baile anthem “Na Fuga”. Spanish heartthrob Kaydy Cain drives the emotional “Tu Mirada,” rising reggaetonera Albany croons on “Dime Que Tu Quieres,” while “Catastrofe” brings a cumbia shuffle with longing vocals from Honduras-born, Montreal based Isabella Lovestory. The EP’s sole instrumental offering, “Latigo” is a characteristically Florentino flavored club banger that unites reggaeton with a 2019 UK Funky flex.
In the last year Florentino has performed internationally, and collaborated with a broad range of vocalists through his exploration of the Latin diaspora. Those experiences and travels have created a deep, melodic and ebullient collection of songs. There’s explorations of toxic love, heartbreak and melodrama on Ilimitado, all while reminding you you can dance your troubles away. It’s a dance floor telenovela that solidifies Florentino’s reputation as el más romántico de los románticos.
