Piden Perreo... Lo Más Duro [Deluxe Edition]

by: Alexis & Fido

Piden Perreo... Lo Más Duro compiles the hits -- and a few near misses -- from Alexis & Fido's five previous full-lengths. What it amounts to is not just a listen back to the reggaeton duo's career, but a consistently slamming party record that charts their sonic development from raw, streetwise cowboys to high-stakes producers capable of slicking up their sound without compromising beats and samples. Their intense layering of rhythms, tricky samples, and a deeper thump and grind get more attractive as the years roll on. Whether it's "Me Quiere Besar," the skittering electro of "Tiburon," the full-on skittering beats in "Bartender," or the hip-hop dub of "Gata Michu Michu," there isn't a weak moment here. ~ Thom Jurek
