Today, Remezcla is partnering up with El Bloque for an exclusive premiere the seventh episode of their ongoing second season, and trust us when we say all perreo enthusiasts won’t want to miss it.

For almost two years, Spanish YouTube program El Bloque has been in charge of showcasing the hottest and most diverse música urbana and club artists from Ibero-America. El Bloque’s format takes a cue from ‘80s Spanish music television and gives it a contemporary online DIY spin, and has already hosted interviews with people like Rosa Pistola, Jesse Baez, C. Tangana, Bad Gyal, and Yung Beef, among many others.

El Bloque’s newest episode revolves around reggaeton in all of its forms, featuring appearances by pioneer producer DJ Playero, urbano superstar Becky G, experimental artist Kelman Durán, Mami MC La Goony Chonga, and an in-studio conversation with genre-hopping singer Fuego, who also performs his trap banger “Money Counter.” Japanese, Clara!, Los del Control, and Las K-Narias also appear on the episode.
