Rita Indiana: Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Rita Indiana has now taken up residence in Puerto Rico, where her single “Dulces sueños” [Indiana’s version of Annie Lennox’s “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)”] is now being heard across the island’s radio stations and internationally from her most recent and critically acclaimed album, El Juidero (Premium Latin Music). Immediately upon hitting the music scene around 2008, Indiana has been garnering rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The NY Daily News named her “The Top 5 Indie Jewels of 2008,” and has been growing at her own pace to an ever-growing base of devoted fans across the globe.

Geko Jones: Brooklyn-based Puerto Rican/Colombian DJ/producer, and promoter for the popular party ‘¿¡Qué bajo!?’ with DJ Uproot Andy, Geko’s renowned mixing at parties has gained him the notoriety and respect of top DJ’s and party people across the Latin America and European bass scene. He continues to push the Latin agenda integrating folkloric sounds with the tropical bass, often incorporating heavy Afro-Latin percussion mashed up with hard synths and global breaks.
