Guadalajara, Jalisco’s Los Master Release Limited Edition “Buena Vida” Single on Purple Vinyl via Stay Free Recordings

by Levi
Los Master Plus proudly present the limited edition “Buena Vida” single in 45 rpm purple and black vinyl. This colorful collectible marks the collaboration with one of their long-time idols and staple in the cumbia community, Pato Machete; from the historic latin hip-hop trio Control Machete. The track is all about celebrating life and giving value to the little things we take for granted; as well as paying a heartfelt homage to cumbia music showcasing different styles of the genre: the Mexican norteño style can be felt right from the start, intertwining with the more South American feel of it towards the end of the song. The chant “Cumbia Orgullo Latino” calls for and makes a toast to Latin unity under the sound all Latin American countries share that spawned from African rhythms. Side B features the iconic cumbia cover of Sisqo’s “The Thong Song” that has been heard on all kinds of stages around the world where Los Master Plus have brought their energetic show.”Stream videos for the two tracks here: “Buena Vida”:”Thong Song”: Los Master Plus: Los Master Plus was born in the musical city of Guadalajara, Jalisco in 2010.
