Boombox Cartel, the LA-based team-up of Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina, is best known for their dynamic 2015 hit track “B2U” with Ian Everson. Armed with their sick beats, they continued their unique and innovative sound through succeeding releases such as “Spaceless”, “Aftershock” with NGTHMRE, and “Jamba” with Jackal, as well as remixes of Skrillex’s “Killa”, Diplo’s “Be Right There”, and Cash Cash’s “How To Love”. Since “B2U”, Americo and Jorge have received near universal support from heavy-hitters in the industry such as DJ Snake and Martin Garrix.

In 2016, Boombox Cartel’s single “Colors” garnered more than 250,000 plays on its first week in music streaming site SoundCloud. The quickly rising duo’s latest EP album called Cartel was released this year with five fresh tracks, including infectious songs “Widdit” and “Jefe”.
Americo and Jorge met in Monterrey, Mexico and went to the same school in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They both stem from highly diverse musical backgrounds and the result of their collaboration showed their undeniable musical chemistry that catapulted them to rise to the top of the city’s DJ scene. Eyeing even greater opportunities to share their forward-thinking sound, they moved to Los Angeles where their rise as an international powerhouse duo began to take hold. With a slew of their popular tracks permeating the American EDM experience, Boombox Cartel is currently touring the U.S. and is slated to perform at festivals in Europe and parts of Asia.
