Groundbreaking reggaeton producer combines sci-fi and deep Latin roots in a visionary universe
"One of the genre's most forward-thinking architects" is how Pitchfork described visionary Puerto Rican reggaeton producer Tainy. As a producer, he has worked with a prominent list of today's hottest stars such as Bad Bunny, Kali Uchis, Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes and more. Of course, he was also featured on Rosalía's masterpiece Motomami, which saw the Spanish singer explore the futuristic reggaeton that Tainy masters to perfection.
Billboard has named him one of the 10 most important producers of the 21st century, and when you look at the overwhelming list of groundbreaking hits he's contributed to, it's easy to see why. In 2023, Tainy released his first solo album DATA, another creative milestone with collaborators such as Bad Bunny, Skrillex, Myke Towers, Four Tet, Julieta Venegas and more.
DATA showcases an eclectic artist who, based on reggaeton, both delves deep into the roots of Latin music and looks to the future in a conceptual framework of a female cyborg.
It's a testament to a musical brain that sparks creativity, and now the visionary producer brings his sci-fi influenced and danceable reggaeton universe to life on stage when he performs at Roskilde Festival.
