Los Angeles, California (Top40 Charts/ LMS Records)
LMS Records' Proyecto TQ, have released their debut album, Fuego, on August 28th, 2012. The album features eleven new tracks in Proyecto TQ's signature Latin Hip-Hop. Fuego
is available through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and other major online retailers.
Proyecto TQ represents a collaboration between Cuban Hip-Hop artists Qbanito and Rey El Vikingo, with L.A. based Alternative Rock band TECHiLA and Mr. DIG. While Qbanito's and Rey El Vikingo's musical styles usually get labeled as Reggaeton, this collaboration combines a pool of influences, the most distinguishable being the music of Qbanito's and Rey's homeland, Cuba. Together with TECHiLA and Mr. DIG they fuse a modern array of hip-hop beats, rock, Cuban Son, and other Latin American flavors into a conveyor belt of hook-filled fiery songs that are infectiously rough around the edges.
Proyecto TQ is part of the Spanish Hip Hop movement that has become increasingly popular through Latin America, the U.S., and Europe, with acts such as Pitbull
and Calle 13
being two of the most popular. However, Proyecto TQ provides heavier lyrical content that exposes gritty, harsh snippets of life. As Qbanito says, "Every day is a new experience and potential for a new song." Although their lyrical descriptions encapsulate a harsh reality, they deliver their sometimes-gruesome stories with an underlying ethos: The characters in Proyecto TQ songs have their own moral code, namely loyalty to their street family.
The foursome have released solo albums as well as singles under the Proyecto TQ monicker, but Fuego
is their first full debut LP. Proyecto TQ has already received an impressive amount of recognition, with songs featured in the feature films Gran Torino (WB), Remember Me (Summit Ent.), A Better Life (Summit Ent.), as well as TV series NCIS Los Angeles, CSI, and CSI NY.
The album is released through the LMS Records label. For more information, promo request, or interviews please contact Julio
