The article deals with the success story of Panamanian duo Mach & Daddy. According to Walter Kolm of Universal Music Latino claims, U.S. Latin radio initially flat-out rejected the duo's sound. So, instead of insisting on radio, Kolm turned to club promotion via record pools. Now, Mach & Daddy's album, Desde Abajo is number 27 on the Top Latin Albums chart, and has just been certified Latin gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments exceeding 100,000 copies.
