From the vibrant borders of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, emerges a prodigious producer with a unique vision: MNTR. With roots intertwining between the rich Mexican musical heritage and the powerful Anglo-Saxon influence of the United States, MNTR fuses the best of both worlds in his musical journey. Some inspirations for MNTR include Disclosure, Flume, Madeon, Skrillex, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Playboi Carti, among others. On the other hand, he does not neglect his roots, as Mexican pop has directly or indirectly been part of MNTR's musical life. Artists such as Belanova, Reik, Aleks Syntek, among others, have been present in MNTR's musical journey. It is worth noting that MNTR had a significant influence on EDM around the year 2013 and is a big part of what it is today.

Although he did not pursue formal education in audio engineering or music production, MNTR is a living testament to self-taught continuous evolution. Countless hours of web research, tireless exploration on YouTube, and active participation in forums have solidified his knowledge. His talent, forged through trial and error, highlights his unwavering dedication to music.
