Empresarios officially started to get slick with February’s Sabor Tropical and a subsequent double dose of remixes, and the Latin-oriented, multi-ethnic D.C. band sounds even more polished on its new EP, Bestia, which goes on sale Sept. 27 via Fort Knox. (The title track was leaked today, and two other songs are also online.) The new stuff is undeniably weighted for the dance floor—the hooks are paramount, the beats are insistent, and one song is called “Bailando,” duh—so anybody looking for Empresarios’ dub/chillout skills (or its grittier side, for that matter) will need to wait this one out.
