Emerging 23 year-old producer David Rojas started making music at the age of eight, just himself and a piano. It wasn’t until his older brother introduced him to urban Latin music, however, that he moved into production. Born and raised in Gothenburg, Sweden from Chilean parents, David has absorbed influences from a spectrum of styles.
Already remixing for the likes of major superstars like Enrique Iglesias (getting him his first multi-million stream video), the emerging beatmaker’s comet-like entrance into the scene sees him working with the likes of Puerto Rican legend Bad Bunny and Natti Natasha. ‘Waterfalls’ is an introduction to his huge crossover potential, featuring fellow emerging Swedish singer/songwriter Sixten. Polished, slow-burning club heaters, David’s initial offerings showcase his colossal ambition and prodigious talent, and a signature skill for bringing emerging artists with him. His forthcoming release with Swedish-Brazilian rapper and songwriter, Julimar Santos, is case in point. Listen here
Speaking on ‘Waterfalls’, David states: “I remember driving on the highway on my way to the studio: the sun was setting and I just couldn’t find the perfect song to listen to at that moment that sounded how the sky looked. I got to the studio and made the instrumental with that in my mind. Later, we got the idea of putting some male vocals on it and found Sixten – he came to the studio, we wrote the lyrics and recorded it all the same day.”
