The electrocumbia has been reborn, this time through Raymix, a young Mexican singer/producer and this week’s Billboard Latin Artist on the Rise.
In 2015, Raymix (born Edmundo Gómez Moreno) released his smash hit “Oye Mujer,” which has surpassed 197 million views on YouTube, but all this happened after the Mexican singer earned his college degree. Raymix is an aerospace engineer and his last job was at NASA, where he discovered the idea of mixing Latin basses with electronics as an auditory experiment.
Between 2011 and 2012, Raymix joined forces with two others Mexican trance producers called Light and Wave. One of their songs, Feeling the City, was played on the Armin Van Buuren show State of Trance episodes 608 and 609 and Armin played it in his live sets at that time.
Meet this week’s Billboard Latin Artist on the Rise:
Major Accomplishment: On the Billboard charts, “Oye Mujer” peaked at No. 3 on Tropical Airplay (chart dated Apr 14), and it’s currently in the top 10 of Regional Mexican chart.
