Boogat

Me Muero Por Ti
Montreal-based artist Boogat’s latest LP, Neo-Reconquista, expands on the sounds of his previous, acclaimed album El Dorado. The sound that Boogat has fashioned has been an evolving one; a mix of cumbia, salsa and dancehall mixed with funk, electronica and hip-hop with less reliance on straight-up rapping and leaning more toward a smooth singing style. Pierre Kwenders lends a hand on the catchy standout "Londres," a Latin meets electro meets African groove. The steel percussive vibe of "Una Cita" featuring La Yegros is sonically strong, as is the horns-driven midtempo track "Wena." The Latin pop-minded "Los Amigos" is wonderfully produced, with smooth keys and guitar that's both layered and commercially friendly. Neo-Reconquista presents Boogat as an artist who has long moved past being known simply as a "Spanish-language rapper from Quebec" and who has committed to a more textured artistic evolution and genre-agnostic growth.
