PIRO - THE SLIDER
Piro, the Mexican rock pioneer, singer, songwriter, poet, producer, podcaster and lead vocalist of Ritmo Peligroso, releases his first single as a solo act in more than 30 years, offering a new musical approach to T-Rex's "The Slider".
Greatly influenced by Marc Bolan's genius, Piro recorded "The Slider" changing its bluesy rendition into a harder, Latin rhythm infused version, with an arrangement inspired by the music of the King of Mambo, Perez Prado.
With a legacy that spans 4 decades, Piro first entered the scene as a teenager forming Dangerous Rhythm, the first ever punk band in Mexico in 1978, and releasing their self-titled album under producer Ricardo Ochoa (Alejandra Guzmán, El Tri, Los Tigres del Norte, Paulina Rubio, Ricky Martin) in 1981.
With the inevitable crossover appeal of digging into his musical roots, Dangerous Rhythm translated into Ritmo Peligroso incorporating Afro-Caribbean rhythms and percussions and spearheading the Rock en Español movement that still resonates with audiences of all ages throughout the Latin American region.
"The Slider" was recorded at The Bull Pro in Miami and its Official Music Video captures the dynamism and musicianship of the session while also highlighting Piro's extraordinary abilities as a singer and performer.
