¨Malacopa¨, his first single as a solo artist was part of the blockbuster ¨Recien Cazado¨ Sound Track; Followed by the dance floor hit ¨Villagrán 86 (Si Tu Boquita Fuera)" produced by the Latin House mastermind Victor Magán, quickly charting on the Dance Top 10 in Spain.
On 2013 he released his first album titled ¨Venta de Garage¨ on which he fearlessly waltzes from the Cumbia and Caribbean percussions to the kicks, claps and synths of House Music. ¨Venta de Garage¨ earned him a nomination on the Indie-O Music Awards in México.
