Rising singer-songwriter Jimencio released his new EP, Mi Ultima Disculpa, on Monday and announced his split with Hacienda Records.
The new EP features a mix of club cumbias & Latin pop. It includes five tracks, including cumbias like “La Senal”, “Lo Que Te Falta Mami”, “Me Mata”, “Me Facinas” and Latin pop track “Nanga Ti Feo”.
The EP is available now at Jimencio.com for just $6.00.
The singer decided to part ways with Hacienda Records, just five months after signing with the legendary record label.
Jimencio released a statement about the split to TejanoNation.net.
“I first signed with them in 2015 the beginning of February in hopes to be apart of a musical family that could take my music to higher limits, knowing that they are a Conjunto label I was kind of iffy to sign. But, I was assured by Hacienda Records that they could accommodate what was needed to make the album work; musicians, producers and promotion.
Unfortunately, they were unable to hold up their end of the bargain. Leaving me to work on everything on my own again.
The deal wasn’t all that solid from the beginning; being I had to pay for all up front costs of my own album – no budget – no marketing team, etc. Once I signed I realized that they were unable to fulfill their end of the deal – Still knowing I gave them the benefit of the doubt and it still ended with us parting ways. I respect Hacienda because of all of their years of music and amazing history of holding most of the big names in this industry at one time.
However, Hacienda is not new artist friendly. You will have to have your own investors & marketing team & manufacturer, if you want your material to sound, look, and feel industry standard.
Again, I respect all of the staff of Hacienda. I just made the mistake in signing with them as a Cumbia/Latin Pop/Bachata Artist. I wish them all the best in all they do & I hope God continues to bless their establishment, and I hope they wish the same for me and my music. ”
