He has traveled the globe as a DJ since the age of 18 and has been dropping musical productions of his own since 1999 with his cult classics "Cleopatra in New York" & "Mariposa" in 2001. His last album featured "Mi Swing es Tropical" which was not only a worldwide club anthem but was also featured in the iTunes + iPod adverts for the summer of 2007. He's weighed in heavy with remixes for Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Thievery Corporation, Sultan Kahn, Omar Faruk Tekliebek, Balkan Beat Box, The Pimps of Joytime & many more.
