Gigolo & La Exce Explain How Debut EP “Las Torres” Came To Life Under Lockdown Bootcamp
The upcoming Puerto Rican duo Gigolo, born Ronald Tejeda Santos & La Exce born Jean Carlos Ferreira Suero have been making hit after hit since they first made their splash into the music industry with collaborations alongside some of the biggest names in Latin music such as Bad Bunny, Farruko, Arcangel, & many more.
During an interview with El Guru for Apple Music, the duo was challenged to create seven songs in only seven days. El Guru knew that they would be up to the challenge since the talent and hustle that both Gigolo y La Exce possess is incomparable. With so many hits and no official album, this gave the duo the opportunity to create their debut EP “Las Torres“.
Gigolo y La Exce accepted the challenge at once and were excited to get to working on the project with the help of some of today’s biggest Latin music producers, Nelly “La Arma Secreta”, NEON16’s MVSIS, & M. De La Cruz. They set up camp in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico at what they called “Lock Down Camp”.
The first song and video released from the EP was “Luna” which is a track featuring Myke Towers. They told us about the concept behind the song which was completely inspired by “la luna” on everyone’s iPhone which is the “Do Not Disturb” setting. It’s meant to be an empowering song for women to feel supported in their choice to do what they want to do when they want to do it. The duo says that “the song is not just meant to be enjoyed by women but by men as well who can enjoy and dedicate the song to the women in their life.”
Gigolo y La Exce told us why it’s so important to them that they let their fans get to know them on a more personal level. They also shared why they decided to record their song “Entrevista” for this EP which gives us a look at the simple questions that reporters tend to ask them and how they wish to be asked more intimate questions about who they are not only as artists but as human beings.
The talented duo told us that to stand out “it’s important to have creative freedom as an artist because if you follow what everyone else is doing then there’s a long line of people waiting for their chance and you’ll be at the end of the line”
