'...a mash up of congas and club beats that earns every bead of sweat that dances its way down your back.' - Marie Claire
'A Latin soul charmer' - Washington Post
Rene Lopez releases his new full-length, ELS. The album's title refers to a style Lopez has been developing over the past few years, a now-signature sound he calls 'Electric Latin Soul.' The sound is a celebration of Rene's dual identity as both a native New Yorker and a second generation Puerto Rican American, and mixes Latin soul and boogaloo with rock, hip-hop and R&B, featuring a seductive blend of hypnotic rhythms and Rene's undeniably soulful voice. ELS features co-producers Mario Caldato Jr., a.k.a. Mario C (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson, Bebel Gilberto) and Jason Lader (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis), as well as special guests Joey Altruda, and Money Mark (John Butler Trio).
