(From All Music.com-Mark Deming) One of the leading lights of Colombian music in the 21st century, singer and instrumentalist Silvestre Dangond has become a star with his updated take on vallenato, a traditional musical style from the Caribbean regions of Colombia. Dangond was born in Urumita, La Guajira, Colombia on May 12, 1980. His father was William José Dangond Baquero, who performed as a vocalist in his spare time, using the stage name El Palomo. Growing up in a musical household, Silvestre became interested in performing at a young age, maturing into an accomplished singer and timbale player. After completing high school, he chose to make music his career, and teamed with accordion player Ramón López. The duo began playing parties and club gigs, making a reputation as a solid live act. In 2002, Dangond and López landed a record deal with Sony Music and soon released their debut album, Tanto Para Ti.
On his new studio album, the 16th of his career, Silvestre Dangond went full experimental, even dubbing the set Intruso — perhaps because he feels like an intruder in the urban realm?

In 2003, Dangond was introduced to accordion player Juancho de la Espriella, and the two soon struck up a professional relationship; de la Espriella replaced López in the act, and Dangond and de la Espriella teamed up for an album, 2003's Lo Mejor Para los Dos. The duo soon delivered two more albums, Mas Unidos Que Nunca (2004) and Ponte a la Moda (2005), as they became major stars in Colombia. By the time Dangond and de la Espriella had released their seventh album together, 2011's No Me Compares con Nadie, they were the nation's top vallenato act, and received diamond certification for Colombian sales, while the album topped the Colombian album charts.

(From All Music.com-Fred Thomas) Rapper/songwriter/producer/visual artist Duckwrth brings his vibrant, curious personality to songs that blur genre lines. His production approach ranges from smooth, organic R&B to futuristic hip-hop instrumentals to infectious pop hooks, and he explored all of this and more on his 2020 debut studio album SuperGood and the singles that followed, like "Birthday Suit" and "Make U Go."
Duckwrt - Kiss U Right Now
“I like putting in a little extra something in my orders,” says Duckwrth, a rapper, singer and sometimes self-producer with eclectic tastes that range from Motown to punk. “When I buy something, I like it when I get a little something more.”
Duckwrth was born Jared Lee in Los Angeles in 1989. His childhood was sheltered, and he spent much of his time inside, watching cartoons and drawing.
He channeled some of his artistic spirit while enrolled in art school in San Francisco, but he ultimately dropped out and made his way back to Los Angeles. In the mid-2010s, he began releasing his own songs online under the Duckwrth moniker and expanded his audience when he did some work with producer Kickdrums.
Following their collaborative 2014 single "Supersoaker" and the album Nowhere that followed the next year, Duckwrth released his first entirely solo collection, 2016's I'M UUGLY.
