Listen to Que Que (Torro Torro Remix)

Torro Torro is the Toronto based production duo of Mike ("Digits") and Yo Ev. The duo masterfully create an identifiable brand of contemporary party music, influenced by hip hop, electronic dance music and tropical riddims. Their remix and original productions over the past year have landed them the highest acclaim of their peers. Today there is no doubt that you will hear a Torro Torro record played at the biggest parties the world has to offer, all the way down to the intimate tastemaker clubs nurturing the growth of global bass.

Torro Torro first broke onto the international music scene in September 2010 with their debut single, "Knockin' Boots" (released on T&A Records). The single became an overnight favorite in the international dance community. Having released Knockin’ Boots to much acclaim the duo followed up in fine form this Spring with their smasher Blue Blouse Which has since become a Summer anthem of 2011, making its mark on the iTunes Electronic Music Charts and continues to receive regular spins on BBC Radio 1Extra.

As Torro Torro's original and remix work continues to push them into the international big room party scene, they have also found themselves at the forefront of an exciting new genre called, "moombahton" (global mid tempo bass). The duo were introduced to the genre from its inception through their working relationship with T&A Records. Within months of Moombahton's creation, Torro Torro discovered a number their original creations lending to the early development of the genre.

Torro Torro are recognized as Canada’s ambassadors to this new movement. Their popular monthly event SLOWED attracts performing artists from around the world and is now held in both Toronto and Montreal. They have quickly achieved some of the top charting Moombahton releases in 2011, including their remixes of Turn Up The Volume, New Life, and most notably their Fall 2011 remix of Dillon Francis and Diplo's "Que, Que"
