Currently i`m based in Cali, Colombia , my town, the scene here is one of the most important of the country with top artists like Harvy Valencia, DJ Fronter and others..
The people is very underground.
How did you first start playing music?
Always had passion for the music, Some friends who were already working in the electronic music industry introduced me to this world.
My first experience front to a public playing music where it was in 2014, I will tell you a little how was this experience; I still did not start my stage as a producer, I stayed in my room with my headphones preparing the set for a month, there were days when I stopped eating because of anxiety, I listened to music all day, trying to select the best. My hometown, it ended up being the place where I would debut in the decks, I had a lot of anxiety, nerves, stress and desire to do it well, it was something very local … the nerves disappeared when I played the second song and finally I felt more liberated, although I couldn’t stop drinking beer, in the end it was perfect for me, which marked my start in the decks and people seemed to be as satisfied as I was.
What’s been happening recently?
Recently i`m in the studio ending some new tunes for some big labels and closing some tours around south Amèrica and Europe.
Not too long ago you released a two track EP called Discow with Hot Creations, how did you come to release with Hot Creations?
It was a personal objective, and was not easy, Jamie Jones already play my music, releases on another labels, it was proccess of a lot months and send many music to Jamie Jones, until after trying for a long time I managed to create a blunt track that pleased Jamie, he tried it on the dance floor and people enjoyed it, it was then that Jamie contacted me back and told me that he would like to take it out in Hot Creations, and it was like “the duty fulfilled” for me, It was great.
How has Discow been received by fans/industry?
The EP and the track had a fantastic and incredible acceptance by the public around the world, I really did not expect such massive support from fans and great artists of the industry.
What influenced the sound and songwriting for Discow?
Discow is a proposal with soul influence, experimental jazz, funk and disco tones at its base. The cherry on the cake is a strong voice in the breaks, that adds expectation and euphoria.
How did you go about writing the 2 tracks?
I was in the studio for months, creating a loud sound with a mixture of some influences that could be remembered and that was true to my style, something “groover” focused on the dance floor.
Where and when did you record/produce?
It was in the months of February and March (2019) in my studio located in my town Yumbo, Valle del Cauca, Colombia
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Right now i`m listening a lot Dirtybird, the label of Claude VonStroke and the last works of Max Chapman, one of my favorite artists.
What do you like to do away from music?
I`m Painter and cartonist so i like to dedicate time to these passions, also i like a lot go to movie theater.. Horror, comedy or action movie preferably.
You’ve recently signed with MFM Booking, how did this come about?
After of this massive “boom” with Discow EP on Hot Creations, they contact to me and Harald told me of his ideas with me and i liked his proposal so we did it..
How has the experience with MFM Booking been so far?
It`s a great experience, they are very professional and they give me a lot of confidence.

Favourite food and place to hangout?
My favorite food is the Sancocho, a typical food in Colombia , it`s a type of soup and a place could be the cerro de cristo rey, It is a place where you can observe the entire city of Cali, ideal to hang out and disconnect a little.
