Boogat is on a roll ! A week after receiving two awards at the 2013 ADISQ for best world album and best producer (Quebec equivalent of the grammys) and getting his music on the hit series Homeland, he releases a new EP “Sunset Remixes”, which includes remixes from his latest album “El Dorado Sunset” and also from “Pura Vida”.
He called on his international producer/dj friends to contribute to the EP: DJ GeeRaph (Mtl), Javier Estrada (Monterrey) KenLo (Mtl), Chong-X (Lima), El Hijo De La Cumbia (Buenos Aires), G-Flux (DC), Atropolis (NYC) and Poirier (Mtl).
And because Boogat is an all around nice guy who wanted to thank his fans and celebrate this amazing year, he offers this EP for free ! You can still grab Eldorado Sunset on iTunes too.
BOOGAT is a young talented MC living in Montreal and bridging latin groove with urban and electronic music while telling everyday life stories with catchy hooks and sometimes goofy lyrics. He also can be moving like in the very evocative «Cumbia De Las Luchas» where Juan choose to sign-up for the army and fight in Iraq to get his green card. His most recent album, Eldorado Sunset, got him two« Félix» at the 2013 ADISQ awards for best world music album and best producer. During the last 3 years, Boogat also released 3 free mixtapes, 1 EP and many collaborations with musicians from all around the world. His song El Alto De La Paz with Mati Zundel got synched to the groundbreaking TV show Homeland.
His explosive live show will turn any situation into a party for both the latin fans and a larger audience. Boogat is skillful in creating a connection and communicating with the audience during his shows where he plays his repertoire with a percussionist, a drummer and trombone player. Boogat and his band already played some major international festivals like Montreal Jazz Fest, Toronto Small World Music Festival or Sonar Festival in Barcelona and a series of concerts in the USA, Mexico and France.
