Feliz Año Nuevo: Toy Selectah On the Mayan Apocalypse, DJ Screw & the Beauty of Cumbia

His name is Antonio Hernandez, but the world knows him as Toy Selectah. The producer/DJ is one of the most influential figures in la musica Latina, constantly creating sounds and rhythms for almost 20 years. He enjoyed success with the pioneer Rock en Español group Control Machete, served as an A&R for Universal Music during the height of the Reggaeton era, and is now one of the champions of immensley popular Tribal Guarachero movement.

Rocks Off sat down with Toy during his visit to Houston last Friday as he performed at the Redbull Thre3Style Massive event at Stereo Live.
