Coastal vibes with a city attitude. That’s probably the best way to describe the essence of COASTCITY. The Grammy nominated artist-production duo is comprised of Jean Rodríguez and Danny Flores, two talented and multi-faceted musicians who created an avant-garde bilingual musical project known as COASTCITY.
While working together on Jean’s third studio album, Rodríguez and Flores realized what they were creating was simply magic. It was then they decided to put Jean’s album on hold and embark on a joint musical venture establishing themselves as a production-artist duo. Creating their own musical lane, both lyrically and through a fresh and innovative sound, they created a new genre and coined the term “soul caribeño” (Caribbean soul) to describe their music. Dubbed the “Latino N.E.R.D.”, individually and/or together COASTCITY has worked with renowned artists such as: Beyoncé, Shakira, Luis Fonsi, J Balvin, Marc Anthony, Prince Royce, Chris Brown, Juanes, TreySongz, and Yandel, amongst others.
