Latino remixes in you tube:
Roberto Souza Rocha was kindly named Latino when he lived in the USA. Besides his tanned skin (common in Latin Americans), the main reasons for this nickname were some of his personal features. Attractive, irreverent, audacious and versatile; strong marks in Latin American people’s personality.
Singing, composing, dancing and producing, the artist proves his latin features in every kind of work he faces. Numbers can not only show his popularity and success, but also confirm that the right usage of these elements altogether can perfectly work out.
Latino sold more than 4 million CDs along his career, has a sum of seven gold record discs, four platinum and two of double platinum. Besides that, two gold record DVDs and a platinum one enlarge his achievements list.
His amazing boom also reached the fever of ring tones in cell phones. Four of the most downloaded songs in Brazilian mobile phones are his. “Festa no Apê” was downloaded more than five million times.
The new CD Latino na pista – Remixes album takes the singer’s style to the dance floor. The remixes had been created by Latino himself for an international work; however, Som Livre really enjoyed it and here you are. “Festa no Apê”, “Me Leva”, “Só Você” and the newest one “Catia Catchaça” are on the play list. “Catia Catchaça” was composed based on a friend who loves drinking and always exaggerates, overdrinking. The next day this guy is unable to remember things and argues with his girlfriend. “Tem culpa eu?/Tem culpa Cátia?/ A desgramada da Catchaça” shows its irreverence and is being a great success expectation for next summer.
Latino na pista – Remixes album was produced by Ian Duarte and Fabianno. The same producers of the eurodance group from Brazil called Kasino. The managing direction was headed by Christovam Neumann and José Carlos “Kaká” Silva. The CD was released by the label Up In The Air Produções and distributed by Som Livre.
THE NEW ALBUM
LATINO – SEM NOÇÃO
This is his first CD with Universal Music distribution. This album was also produced by Ian Duarte and Fabianno from Maxpop Studios. The same producers of the smash hits “Clap your hands” by Ramada. The managing direction was also headed by Christovam Neumann and José Carlos “Kaká” Silva. This CD brings two songs from the CD Latino na pista – Remixes, “Catia Catchaça” remix and “Vagalume”. The big hit of this new album is the Portuguese version for “Shark Around” by El Chombo entitled “Nem Noção”. His fans have been producing lots of funny videos on Youtube about his songs and his crazy lyrics. Latino promises to always keep the good mood in his next productions.
Latino has sold more than 4 million CDs along his career.
