Miami-based TAXI Member Pete Masitti has been very busy these days. Besides preparing to record his third independent CD, Pete produced the new Hootie and the Blowfish single ("Innocence") on Atlantic Records; that single is currently in the Top Twenty on the Billboard Hot AC charts. Pete also wrote a song ("All Right") for the album.

Pete also recently produced and wrote (or co-wrote) the new Julio Iglesias, Jr. album on Warner Latina. The first single, "Los Demas," has just been released and is already in the Top 30 on the Billboard Latin charts. The album contains Spanish versions of several of the songs on Pete's second record called "Turn Around". Available on CD Baby.com -- listen to Pete's version here:

Masitti told TAXI, "We took some chances with this record as it is very 'American' sounding for the Latin market. I think anyone who has been waiting for a solid pop/rock record in Spanish will dig this CD."

But that's not all. Pete and former New Kids On the Block member Danny Wood have co-written and produced Danny's new record called "Second Face," due for release this summer through BMG. We've heard bits and pieces and it's rock/alternative/pop sound bears little resemblance to NKOTB. Watch for it this summer.
