“After we made ‘Bailar’ and performed it at Coachella, we wanted to make more music together,” Deorro, born Erick Orrosquieta, tells Billboard over the phone. “I never plan things. The only thing I can do is get on my laptop and create music. Nothing really happened until now that Henry Fong sent me ‘Pica,’” he says, adding that Crespo loved the song so much, he recorded his part as soon as he heard it. “It came together so quickly. It’s another track that I’m really proud of because it represents what I do: high-energy Latin sounds.”
He feels blessed to be welcomed by the EDM world, but as a Mexican-American DJ, the 27-year-old artist also feels there’s a strong lack of Latinx crowds at the shows.
