Mexicans here in the USA. I was in a band with some. Recio was used for fast or loud.

comment ¡Hay moros en la costa!
@Envite I'm not sure everyone agrees with you about the meaning of Moors. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moors begins with "The Moors were the medieval Muslim inhabitants of Morocco, western Algeria, Western Sahara, Mauritania, the Iberian Peninsula, Sicily, and Malta. Their descendants are presently known as the Maghrebis."

comment ¡Hay moros en la costa!
Moro is a reference to the Moors, which were the Muslims from Morocco. So technically, Moor is a reference to the place, which happened to be overwhelmingly Muslim. As a result, the meanings were collapsed.
