El Tanque combines his Latin roots with his love for rap and fused together a Spanish trap song that can appeal to a larger audience of listeners! “Sin Freno” isn’t solely captivating for those who understands the spanish language but it’s digestible for those who simply enjoys a good banging beat with a clean flow and delivery. “Sin Freno” is a finely-calibrated record and F.T.

Hey, welcome to BuzzMusic! Can you tell our readers a little about yourself and your music?

Sure, a bit about myself well... I was born in Queens, NY, but moved to Florida at a very early age and I've practically lived in Florida for most of my life. I'm a proud Dominican/American who has an insane passion for music. Growing up I've always idolized artists and singers who would bring joy to those who heard they're music. Since I was young it has always been a dream of mine to become a music artist and share that same passion and love for music as the idols I grew up with. Having a Hispanic background and living in the U.S. gave me a mixture of two worlds in which encompasses my influences for my music. Listening and hearing all kinds of music from Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Reggeaton, Latin (Spanish) Trap, to also Hip-Hop, RnB, rap, and Trap music. There is definitely a collective of multiple genres which have influenced me and my music.


Tell us about “Sir Freno” and how would you interpret the meaning for our readers!?

"Sin Freno" is my debut single as an independent Latin Urban music artist. "Sin Freno" translated in English means "Without Brakes" or "No Brakes." The concept behind the song is telling you a story about me and my journey saying that I will not stop until I reach my goals and fulfill my dreams of becoming a successful music artist. It also ties to what inspired "Sin Freno" to become my debut single, because I actually started creating music from a young age and when I was in high school, I had high hopes of chasing after my dreams, but unfortunately did not receive the support, I had hoped for from friends and family and instead was routed to pursue a college education to get a "real job." So I never initially put out any music until "Sin Freno." Now some years later, after graduating from high school, I dropped out of college because I finally had decided for myself that my passion was with music and I was going to live or die with music. Thus, the song "Sin Freno" as a statement to myself and the world, that I would never quit or give up again.

What’s the most captivating element about “Sir Freno” in your opinion?

The most captivating element about "Sin Freno," no actually about all my music is the emotion, that I put behind my music and craft. I want the world to feel that emotion, as I am expressing it through my music.


What can we expect to hear next from you?

My 2nd single will becoming out soon on 4/18/19, and that is the next thing that you can expect to hear from me. The name of the single is called "Perdóname.
