Bilingual Salvadoran artist RATCHETÓN first hit the Latin music scene with his 2018 single “Que Lo Que,” racking up over 370,000 streams and jumpstarting a growing fan base. The catchy melodic hook floats over a tropical trap beat by multi-platinum producer FKi 1st (Post Malone, Travis Scott, A.CHAL) and newcomer Isvir Beats. This past year he has been collaborating with artists like Fenix (Shoreline Mafia), Cuco, Thomasa de Real, Robot, Lil Mexico, Principe Q, Feefa, & more. Gaining attention from Remezcla, World Latin Star, Noisey, Uforia, and MiTu, RATCHETÓN is bringing a fresh sound and personality that makes him stand out from the crowd.
RATCHETÓN was born in South Central Los Angeles and raised in East Hollywood around a mixture of cultures and musical influences. Playing in bands growing up and then becoming involved in skateboarding culture, he always had an ear for music and an eye for visuals. When he met producer FKi 1st they set out to create a new sound dubbed “Ratchetón.” Carving out his own lane, he describes it as a fusion of current trap with traditional reggaeton mashed up in a fun, sexy, and of course ratchet way. Most importantly, these are bold international anthems that set him up for big things to come.
RATCHETÓN performed at Peligrosa House in Austin, TX for the 2019 SXSW Music Festival, Tropicoso Festival in Corpus Christi, and was featured at Univision’s Uforia Music Showcase in Houston, TX. In his hometown Los Angeles, he has performed at live music venues and underground clubs including Dirty Laundry, Los Globos, The Virgil, Playhouse, Avalon, and events for Live Nation’s “Gasolina”, Diamond Supply Co., Jameson, and Mad Decent’s “Good Gas.” Currently RATCHETÓN is putting the finishing touches on his first album, working with executive producer FKi 1st along with other top-notch producers and musicians.
