Chicago-based "duranguense" group Los Creadorez del Pasito Duranguense has renewed its contract with Univision Music Group's Disa Records label.
Los Creadorez, a spin-off from popular Chicago-based duranguense group, Grupo Montez de Durango, was created by former Montez lead singer Alfredo Ramirez Corral. The group's debut studio album, "Recio, Recio mis Creadorez," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart in January.
The re-signing precedes the release of the band's second studio album, "Las Favoritas de los Creadorez... Corridos, Rancheras y Mas...," which is due in October from Monterrey, Mexico-based Disa.
Announcing the new deal, Disa VP/GM Carlos Ruiz called Creadorez "one of the most successful groups in the duranguense realm in particular and the regional Mexican realm in general."
Duranguense, a sub-genre of regional Mexican music, is a blend of traditional banda with electronic instruments. It was initially popularized by several groups out of Chicago, including Montez de Durango and Horoscopos de Durango, both of whom are also signed to Disa.
