Reggaeton is also music out of Denmark, and it gets your hips swaying

Everything is reggaeton. Just ask IVAN$ITO!

It sounds a bit like an election slogan, and this musical election campaign has already convinced many music-loving voters. They want music from where it’s hot, and which invites you to dance!

IVAN$ITO is a Chilean born artist who lives in Denmark. And he insists on some musical heat!

Reggaeton is a music genre that originated in Puerto Rico in the mid-90s as a mix of dancehall, hip-hop and reggae. Rule no. 1 of the lyrics is that they must be sung in Spanish. The music is energetic and laidback, carefree and sad – at the same time.

Reggaeton is in IVAN$ITO’s blood. He finds his inspiration in the genre's global success with artists such as Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and he gives it a unique Scandinavian twist.

In 2020, he released the album Everything Is Reggaeton (the title is only English element here, the rest is 100 % Spanish-sounding). The music has a warm, melancholic and super melodic glow. In other words, it has everything you need!

In 2021, the Dane-Chilean followed up with the EP $OLO MEMOS, which builds on the expression and speaks to your beating reggaeton heart.

IVAN$ITO's Spanish vocal lectures are both sensitive, evocative and fully convincing. And if you don't understand much Spanish, don’t worry about it. You’re never in doubt about the emotions that the music conveys!
