He's just released a Palenque remixed compilation on his label Dutty Artz with a host of tropical bass producers giving a modern spin to African rooted folkloric music from the Atlantic coast of Colombia.

He's currently DJ for Radio Groovalizacion, Radio CapSao, Radio Anáhuac Mayab and Radioglobal.org and has shared bills with the likes of Uproot Andy, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Fauna, Sergent Garcia, Miss Bolivia, El Hijo de la Cumbia, the SoulJazz Orchestra, and Joao Brasil.
