Genre: Latin / Urban / Alternative
Release Date: May 4, 2015
Boogat is a Latin/Urban/Alternative artist hailing from Montreal, Quebec. He released his latest album entitled “Neo-Reconquista” on May 4, 2015. The release contains ten tracks including the singles “Londres” and “Me Muero por ti.”
As an individual beginning to learn Spanish, I was excited to listen to the album as it is in the language. The songs are quite catchy. Once you listen to the tracks several times, it becomes easier to sing along to and grows on you more upon each play. I enjoyed the instrumentals and vocals. My favourite tracks on Neo-Reconquista were En la Montaña, El lobo, and Una cita (featuring La Yegros).
Even if you do not understand Spanish, I would definitely recommend checking out the singles “Londres” and “Me Muero por ti.” If you enjoy them, pick up a copy of Neo-Reconquista by Boogat on iTunes!
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
