I love tacos and I love Mexican culture. When I found these horn samples it just brought me back to when I was in Mexico this past year partying and eating dirt cheap authentic tacos in the scorching sun. I was going for a feel-good vibe of a taco truck pulling up in the midst of a party. I tried to chop everything up in a way that’s groovy, funky, and of course tasty.

[ Artist Bio ]
A producer and drummer Pablo Eskobear’s passion for music started at the age of 12. The US music-maker played in a heavy metal band before switching to hip hop to craft his own music in 2017. Transitioning from the fiery metal drums to the more laid-back but still prominent hip hop percussion, Pablo takes a versatile approach, with his beats binding together boombap with funk and soul and other influences. In his studio in Grand Rapids, MI, he creates both standalone instrumentals and rap beats, while constantly digging through old vinyl records and scouring the internet for rare gems that would inspire his next tune.

The signature sound of the artist is not the only memorable feature. In fact, one of the most unique aspects is his artist name. In a 1985 police chase drug smuggler Andrew Thornton II was on the run with containers of cocaine, which he dropped from a plane above a forest. Instead of cocaine worth tens of millions of dollars though, police found just 40 open containers and a dead black bear. The animal had feasted on the entire load and died of an overdose. The “Cocaine Bear”, later nicknamed “Pablo Eskobear” sure knew how to party! The music producer adopted the moniker as a darkly humorous way to carry on the legendary greatness of the animal.

[ Release Info ]
After “Brass Class” Pablo stays on the brass page but this time explores a new and exciting area. His new offering “Taco Truck” is inspired by his trip to Mexico and will effortlessly put a smile on the face of any listener.

The track is built around captivating horn samples, encapsulating the vibrant spirit of the country and sonically translating three things that come to mind when one thinks about Mexico: the uplifting effect of the sun rays, the tasty food and the ability to party and celebrate life.

“Taco Truck” one more time portrays Pablo’s knack for incorporating diverse elements in his compositions, ever delivering not only great vibes but also satiating the listener’s hunger for fresh and interesting sound.
