Two hours south of the Texas border in Monterrey, Mexico comes Control Machete. Pato, Toy Kenobi, and Fermin IV Caballero were destined to become Mexico's first Hip-Hop group. Their debut album "Mucho Barato" , released July 1, 1997 has sold well over 100,000 copies in Mexico alone and is selling well in the U.S. This album took Latin Hip-Hop to another level.
In "Comprendes Mendes?" Control Machete laces Mexican riffs with hardcore Hip-Hop beats. Their political lyrics would make Rage Against the Machine's Zack De La Rocha proud. Tracks such as "Humanos Mexicanos" and "Mexican Curious" attack the United States for its anti-immigrant campaigns, while encouraging raza to unite and defend what is rightfully ours. Their second album is called "Artilleria Pesada, Presenta" and it was released March 30, 1999.
Their track "Danzón" from this second album was recorded in Cuba with Buena Vista Social Club's Rubén González and Orlando "Cachaito" López. Their most recent album is "Uno, Dos, Bandera" and comes complete with a VCD containing the videos of all the songs on the CD. It was released in 2003. Their song "Si Señor" was featured in the movie "Amores Perros," and a television commercial for Levi's bluejeans. ...show less
