Juan Doc Chavez........"It's sure to be the Salsa CD/Album of 2011. Sonido Criminal's new release "Crime Payz" terminates 2010 with a plasmic blast, jumpstarting 2011 like the Big Bang Theory." "This CD was already marked for success with preceding hot, single tracks like, "Cuando Te Conoci", "Rumba En El Cielo" and "Sandunguera". It's these tracks that induced me to buy the full CD, "Crime Payz". From track 1 "Intro" with it's g...angster excerpts from "Scarface" to the "Godfather" figure on the CD cover, depicts the essence of the criminal element and alerts the listener that this is "Hard Salsa"..."Salsa Dura". Songs like "Urgente Olvidarte", "Careless Whisper" and "Borinquen" will definitely flood the dance floor, so it is definitely a CD to add to your collection, for DJ's and salseros alike."

Sonido Criminal is part of the new generation of the Hard Core Salsa movement. Sonido Criminal was founded in 2006 by Carlos Mojica (lead singer, sonero, song writer) born in Paterson, NJ to Puerto Rican parents. Although young, Carlos was influenced by soneros such as Ismael Rivera, Hector Lavoe, Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez, Tito Allen, Ray De La Paz, Ismael Quintana, Chamaco Ramirez and Justo Betancourt.
Carlos began singing at the age of 15, gaining his experience by playing with local bands and later on sharing the stage with various artists including Ismael Miranda, Brenda K Starr, Luisito Carrion, Hector Tricoche, Lalo Rodriguez, Tito Puente Jr and Johnny Polanco Y Su Conjunto Amistad (one of LA's top salsa bands).
Currently Sonido Criminal is recording their first CD, the highly anticipated, "Crime Payz," which includes the songs "RUMBA EN EL CIELO," "PURO Y SIN CORTE," "SANDUNGUERA," & "FACEBOOK" and is due for release in 2010. All tracks on this CD will be written, produced and arranged by Carlos Mojica with the help of David "El Nene" Gonzalez Jr. and Pedro Jesus.
