A powerful and energetic force on the decks, El Diablo is responsible for one of MalLabel Music’s biggest selling tracks , “Rollin With My Crew”.
El Diablo cut his teeth in the electronic world with San Francisco’s acclaimed Dhamaal Sound System. The crew’s worldly Drum n Bass sound garnered international attention with their self-titled debut album & subsequent singles. The album sold thousands of copies internationally and enjoyed consistent airplay on BBC1 radio as well as being licensed for various features.
El Diablo’s production work with Joshua Meltzer and Qawali master vocalist Sukhawat Ali-Khan of Dhamaal helped win them the top prize in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest, World Music category for the song “Where We Meet”.
Following this initial success & the acclaimed release of the experimental turntablist Hip-Hop album “Superhuman Music” with Flesh O.N.E. and The Colonel MC on the Audio8 Record Label in Chicago, El Diablo was signed to MalLabel Music as resident in 2010.
