The undeniable high dose of reality and cultural lyrics, along with a very catchy and fitting rhythm, inspired a song that people from all around the world are feeling and dancing without inhibitions. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by seasoned engineers in Los Angeles California, the entertainment capital of the world, Desperado by Melekel continues to climb the charts.
