Latin Grammy nominated producer, and DJ, El Dusty has grown a cult following and garnered critical acclaim for his turntable styles and sampling chops since his viral single «K Le Pasa.» Critical acclaim has hailed El Dusty as Rolling Stone's 10 New Artists You Need to Know, Billboard's New Latin Act to Watch, and Pandora's Latin Artists. Known for his collaborative nature and trendsetting beats, El Dusty is set to release his debut album Cumbia City, out May 11th with AfterCluv.
Cumbia City crosses genres, trends and cultures, and is redefining electronic music. 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 inheriting 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 turntablism. 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.
