Album Review

After amassing an enormous fan base in their home of Puerto Rico and charting on an international level, thanks to their appearances on such smash-hit compilations as El Band 2 Korrupto and Mas Flow, Vol. 2, Alexis y Fido were ready to be heard. The Pitbulls was a long time coming for the die-hard fans of this duo, known for their deft, clever wordplay. Many have appreciated their style and flavor in small doses both on compilations and as guest performers with various reggaeton greats. All now have the opportunity to soak up their unique rhythm and flow with this 14-track debut from the Norte label. Both hailing from Cayey, Puerto Rico, Joel "Fido" Martinez and Raul "Alexis" Ortiz have been a presence in the reggaeton underground for years. Martinez has earned respect as a producer and demonstrates his skilled beatmaking on "El Cumbiaton," "Eso Ehh...!!," and "Tu No Sabes." The sexual nature of their humor is cleverly masked, and the duo avoids lyrical material that could be offensive to their female fan base.

With such a strong first impression on the world market and a refreshing approach to the art form, serious reggaeton fans would be wise to keep their eye on this impressive duo. ~ Evan C.
