More about El Dusty

“Raised in Corpus Christi, TX, El Dusty started as a radio DJ at the age of 16 and was mixing and cutting up tracks soon after he inherited his uncle’s massive record collection. His influences include Tejano anthems, Chicano soul music, classic rock along side a solid education in hip-hop, house music and DMC videos. He started touring as the DJ for Baby Bash & Frankie J early on, and eventually he was collaborating with the likes of Angel Hunte, Camilo Lara (Mexican Institute of Sound), reggaeton innovator DJ Blass, bass producer Happy Colors to name a few. Reflective of his musical upbringing, Cumbia City is an amalgamation of turntable science, hip-hop, and bass-heavy electronic styles re-imagined for the new generation of bass-heavy and sound system music.”
