A friendly reminder- a PSA if you will, to allow yourself to delve into “Narcos,” the seductive new TV show based around the unbelievable story of Columbian drug lord, Pablo Escobar, and his rise to control over all of Columbia.
The original track, made exclusively for the show’s soundtrack, it based off of a style called narcocorrido, introduced into the Latin community in the early 1900s as a type of dance-folk music focused around the reality of a drug smuggler’s world. Brought to you by Cookin Soul, a Spanish DJ/production duo, our version of course has some sort of electronic influence. Extremely chill trap snares and high-hats pairs perfectly with that Latin inspired melody that comprises the original.s
If the sounds doesn’t entice you perhaps the lyrics will, translated to English below, where you can grab a download for free too!
I am the fire that burns your skin,
I am the water that kills your thirst.
Of the castle, I am the tower,
The sword that guards the treasure.
You, the air that I breathe,
And the light of the moon on the sea.
The the throat the longs to be choked
That I’m afraid I’ll drown in love.
And which desires are you going to give me.
Just to look is treasure enough,
It will be yours, it will be yours.
