      ESSO is the musical brainchild of Mexican-American songwriter and producer, Armando Pérez. Modern urban tropical music mixing Afrobeat, Hip Hop, Bossa Nova, Salsa and more!

      "With Juntos, ESSO have created a milestone project for the Midwest alt-Latin and global bass scenes. ESSO’s founder Armando Pérez grew up on the streets of Chicago, soaking in the city’s rich culture of hip-hop, house, jazz and rock. On Juntos, Pérez has masterfully fused those sounds with a kaleidoscopic array of Afro-Latin rhythms, touching on everything from reggaeton to merengue."

      "At a time when we've seen consecutive natural disasters pummel places such as Texas, Puerto Rico and Mexico, it's sometimes difficult to see beyond the incredible pain and images of destruction. But just when you think that mother nature's force has become too much to bear, you hear a story about strangers lifting each other or unlikely heroes emerging from the trauma. And it's in these times when songs like "Mi Gente" from Chicago's ESSO remind us that "Solo la gente cuando está unida puede moverse."Only when people are united can they move forward."

      "It's appropriate that ESSO is based in the Heartland. The group sounds like love, with pulsing, vital rhythms and a knack for putting together warm sounds from funk, hip-hop, tropical Latin music, Afropop, and cumbia in such a way that they raise each other up high."​
