Arriving in Spain from Colombia in the early 70s. Elkin (Javier Marin Velez), with his brother Nelson (Leon Marin Velez), established themselves on the Spanish music scene. Fusing hot Latin songs with influences from James Brown, Santana, Afro-Cuban and Jazz-Funk, success in Spain and Latin America saw many number one albums including “Jibaro”. Thanks to the ’88-89 Ibiza Balearic Beat scene, DJs such as Paul Oakenfold and Pete Tong re-discovered “Jibaro”. Elkin & Nelson also performed on some of the biggest hits with The Gibson Brothers - “Cuba”, “Que Sera Mi Vida” and “Ooh! What A Life”.

Daniele Baldelli is a DJ & producer who is considered an innovator in the Italian disco scene for developing a unique, 'funky' and 'tribal' aesthetic by playing eclectic, esoteric records at drastically altered speeds, often slowed way down, and sometimes adding drum machines and effects. He developed the style he likes to call "Cosmic Sound". He started to be a DJ in 1969. He was resident DJ at the Baia Degli Angeli (1977–1978) and Cosmic (1979–1984) discotheques in Northern Italy—Lasize, Lago di Garda; he released scores of mixtapes during his tenure at the latter. He was mostly unknown outside of Italy until a surge of English-language press coverage in the second half of the 2000s.
