New to the KISS Playlist… Aggro Santos is set to release his third single ‘Like U Like’ on January 17th through Future Records / Mercury followed by his debut album ‘Aggrosantos.com’ on January 31st.
Aggro Santos is set to release his third single ‘Like U Like’ on January 17th through Future Records / Mercury followed by his debut album ‘Aggrosantos.com’ on January 31st. The single features the exclusive debut solo performance of Kimberley Walsh (Girls Aloud). ‘Like U Like’ is set to provide the perfect follow-up to UK #1 club record ‘Saint Or Sinner,’ and Aggro’s first worldwide hit ‘Candy,’ which has sold over 250,000 copies to date in the UK alone, breaking the top 5 for 6 weeks.
Co-written with Steve Mac and Wayne Hector (JLS, James Morrison, Leona Lewis, The Wanted), and mixed by Rob Orton (Lady Gaga), Aggro’s single has all the ingredients of a pop classic, and possesses one of the biggest pop hooks of the year. Adding this to a huge remix from Digital Dog (JLS, Cheryl Cole, 50 Cent), and a unique concept video, no-one can deny that Like U Like is the perfect platform for Aggro Santos to carry his considerable success this year into 2011, and to set up the release of his debut album Aggrosantos.com on 31st Jan.
His debut album ‘Aggrosantos.com’ also features the huge top 5 single ‘Candy’ (ft Kimberly Wyatt of the Pussy Cat Dolls), ‘Saint or Sinner’ and ‘Stamina’ along with the massive street single ‘Culo!’.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and growing up in South London, Aggro bought his first computer and music production software aged just 13. His goal was to make himself a household name on the streets of London. Starting out as a budding producer, his early collaborations included a host of British talent including DJ Ironik and Giggs, whilst also quickly proving himself as an extremely talented MC in his own right. It didn’t take long for major labels to recognise the talent and potential he possessed. A record deal with Gary Barlow’s Future Records, and an international hit with ‘Candy’ were the culmination of his years of tenacity and hard work. This initial success was followed by the smash single and club classic ‘Saint Or Sinner,’ as well as The Stamina Mixtape, which featured collaborations from grime ‘Godfather’ Wiley, Dot Rotten and many more.
