Songwriter/producer Young Martino is a 25 year-old Puerto Rico native who has produced over 100 songs during the last 3 years. His eclectic blend of jazz, rap and hip-hop influences makes him a unique talent who challenges ideas about what people expect to hear from a Puerto Rican musician.
His work with fellow Puerto Rican rappers Alvaro Díaz, Joyce Santana and Brray opened the doors for him to be guest DJ for Alvaro Díaz during his opening for Calle 13's Mexico City show, which drew 18,000 fans. His distinctive production has also earned the praise of some of the most prominent indie music festivals, including SXSW, REMEZCLA, LAMC and Viva Latino, to name a few. In 2016, NPR's Alt.Latino radio show named him one of six young producers who shape Latino identity with sound.
