Toronto - Jan. 21, 2006

Reppin' the 905 Asesino & Perro delivered something the volatile crowd did enjoy as the two young MCs brought that gangsta element on top of hard sounding self-produced reggaeton beats. Like previous performers on the bill, Asesino & Perro also opted to use dancers for their set. The dancers were a nice touch in the small stage as both dancers were prepared with previously planned out routines and even added artistry at a certain point to the duos gangsta flex creating a good contrast.
Also noticeable, was Asesino & Perro's ability to get people's hands up while chanting " Latino's put your Ls up!" - LatinUrban.ca

Hip Hop Meets Reggaeton
At Afterlife night club on Thursday, May 18, 2006 Jokerz "r" us Entertainment hosted an event called "Hip Hop Meets Reggaeton". This event was the fusion of the most popular urban music around. The night started off slowly but developed into an explosive event later that night. Like any good night, it couldn't be complete without an incredible performance by our local artists Calentura, Pancho Via, Perro y Asesino and Flakko. Starting the night off with heat and vibe were two outstanding dancers from the Calentura group that hyped up the crowd and made them eager to dance with the rhythm. The Parkland Records king Pancho Via was second and he made sure that the crowd felt his flow and style. His performance was complete with an incredible vibe and dancers as well. The Oshawa boys known as Perro Y Asesino did as expected: prove to T.O that they can move the crowd with their philosophy from the streets and real life lyrics. Last but not least was Flakko, as always doing a good show with his Spanglish lyrical and original style. Hosting the night was the one and only MC Bacon who organized a dance contest in which the winners received giveaways.

Next up Oshawa-based Perro Y Assesino took the stage. They came out with lots of energy and love for the crowd. They preformed their latest single “Mueve la Cadella” and two other tracks. Though their performance wasn’t all that long, I felt their energy and stage presence left a positive impression for those who watched on. Last but definitely not least was the always anticipated Flakko who broght on his reggae-influenced LatinHip-hop and preformed his two newest tracks “Dulce” and “Oye”. Unlike any other artist that night Flakko performed solo without the use of hype men. All he needed was a mic and a DJ to rock the crowd. It was a short performance but to the point and enough to move the crowd and feel his vibe, which fit perfectly to end to a positive and eventful night. All in all the night was great, people came out with no beef, positive attitudes and anticipation to watch those ready to take centre stage. JokerzRus ENT definitely proved they know how to promote and throw a jam right.

Reppin’ Durham region to the fullest, Perro Y Assesino, the reggaeton duo from Oshawa, Ontario - won’t stop at anything to claim their spot in Toronto’s Latin Urban scene. As the shows keep coming and the tracks keep dropping their name will only become more familiar. Their start consisted of hard work and an equal love for Hip-hop. “We started as hip hop artist independently, I started last year and Assesino started as a young buck at the age of 16 making hip hop beats and mix tapes. We met last year and formed Perro Y Assesino” says Perro.

Of course one would argue that Perro Y Assesino sound just like any other reggaeton act trying to make their mark, but with their influences spanning from artists like Rochester A.K.A Juice to Pitbull and Fito Blanko, one would think their sound would be anything but typical. “I’d have to say Pitbull influences me” states Assesino, “I’m lovin’ his dirty south flow, he’s versatile, he spits Spanish and English. I’m also inspired by Daddy Yankee and a lot of other artist from Toronto such as El Imperio, Rochester, Fito Blanko, Sensei and Flakko. Zion Y Lennox inspired me, I spoke to them over the internet and they taught me how to approach writing in a more appealing way, how to speak from my mind, speak the truth.”

Asked if there are any artists they aspire to work with Perro admits: “I wanna work with Immortal Technique and do like an anti-political track, I also wanna work with Winsin Y Yandel and all those heavy industry hitters.”

Although their sound started with hip hop, their Latin backgrounds allowed them to take interest in Latin music, and with the rise of reggaeton it was only time before they too would jump on the opportunity to create music while it’s hot. As for his opinion on the state of reggaeton in Toronto Asesino asserts: “I think, to be honest a lot of the reggaeton now is the same as what came out originally which is why Perro and myself are bringing out more hip hop to reggaeton, to show people that reggaeton is not just reggae or dancehall, we’re bringing more hip hop culture in it because that’s what started it, hip hop”

You can expect to see a lot more of Perro Y Asesino this summer 2006 and if you ask them they’re just getting started. Although there are no set dates they’re working on touring Canada with other local artists. They plan to put out a mix tape that will include such artists as Bishop, Kardinal Offishal, Rochester, and Fito Blanko. Dj Trambo’s “The Take over” volume 2 is another mix tape they plan to put their hands on as well as La Prophesia with Y2J dropping at the end of the summer. You can also expect a video from them for a track called De la Calle set to be shot at the end of this summer. Their album called “Reggaeton Del Norte” is in works and is set to be released some time in June 2006 and apparently available at HMV.

Bio

Perro

Name: Mario R. Valladares

Place of Birth: Lima, Peru

DOB: 10/12/82

Durham region's own Latin pitbull, Perro has been unleashed!

The CEO/owner of Big C Productions and co-founder of the former LaFamiliaCreations.com (Marketing for Independent Musicians) began as an English speaking hip hop MC, recording tracks for mixtapes in the Durham Region. Perro's early work defined his youth, from which he rapped about the negativity in the government, as well as his Peruvian roots. All these factors were the ticket into the local scene.

The lyrics were tight and his flow was fierce, but it wasn’t until he was exposed to the Latin sparked beats of reggaeton and Latin hip hop artists such as Big Boy, Baby Rasta y Gringo, Vico C, Lito y Polaco and Daddy Yankee that Perro found his home.

After reconnecting with Asesino and building on an old friendship and music partnership, Perro began to develop his reggaeton skills and learning the new Latin culture of Reggaeton.

Signed to an independent Record Label, Vinaasha Records on Dec 31st 2005, Perro was ready to unleash his unique flow, ferocious lyrics and pitbull energy.

Perro's name was given to him for many reasons, one of which is that he was born in the year of the dog. Another, is in part to his former name, B-Dogg, and Perro being Spanish for "Dog", was a perfect match for a Latin counterpart.

On a fast pace, he came to love and respect the music that Latinos were putting out for the Latin community. Living in a city with Reggae and Dancehall influences already in effect, Perro decided to get out of the hip hop scene and jump into Reggaeton. He was devoted to put the "ton" into Reggae for Canadian Latinos.

Being the only Reggaeton artist in the 905 area was tough, and living in a city where Reggaeton was not showcased was even tougher. All this changed on the summer of 2005. Nore exposed reggaeton to the masses with " Oye Mi Canto" & Daddy Yankee came out with "Gasolina". This was a sign for Perro, who was more determined than ever to get heard.

Reggaetonero del Norte is here!

The Perro & Asesino Movement led to an open door to the Toronto music scene followed by respect and support of Latin media. After a long path of performances in nightclubs, as well as festivals, Perro learned the fundamentals of running his independent label, promotion, marketing and most importantly recording production.

After a nearly a year of being signed with Vinaasha Records, Perro realized that he no longer needed to be signed due to a constant evolution in his career and a more business minded outlook. The duo were booking their own shows, appearing on radio, contacting major record labels, networking on their own, which eventually led to their inevitable release from Vinaasha Records.

With the help of La Familia Creations and Alger Rhythm and the support of fans, Perro is on the rise to bringing Perro & Asesino to the top with a new LP soon to drop.

Asesino

Name: Emmanuel Rios-Reyes

Place of Birth: Mex. City, Mexico

DOB: 12/30/83

Hip hop has always been the platform, but Asesino is now ready to launch his Latin influenced Reggaeton flavour.

Producing beats and writing lyrics by the age of 18 yrs, Asesino began to forge his musical career. By the time he was 20, Asesino's momentum was building, and his name was carrying a stronger reputation with every mixtape he dropped in the 905 community. That momentum came to a halt in 2003 when Asesino was incarcerated. Although his soul had taken a hit, he continued perfecting his writing skills from behind steel bars.

Soon after his release, Asesino was introduced to an independent local recold label named Vinaasha Records. He was signed to a 3-year developmental deal, bringing him to the next level. Vinaasha Records helped him release his first EP album and expanded his horizons on and off the recording booth.

Asesino's name originates from his killer lyrics in his songs. He is the first Mexican reggaeton artist in the Canadian scene, he is better known for performing the first reggaeton show in the Durham Region with, at the time, Perro as his hype man.

By 2005, work had begun on his debut demo for promotional use in the industry, which was a departure from his previous work. It included the same gangsta feel and bullet lyrics, but with a flow straight from the thrid-world life of Mexico and El Salvador. Asesino had taken his hip hop sense and with the help of Perro, laced it with a pure Latin vibe, joining Latin verses and hooks with English lines to keep both Latino and non-Latino hip hop fans bouncing.

With his business and music partner, Perro, Reggaeton Del Norte has become the beast which is ready to be unleashed on an unsuspecting Latin music world.

After inspiring Perro to open Big C Productions, Asesino followed with his own independent record label, Aztec Records. His mission: beat-making. His goal: to
