El Dusty is considered by some to be the inventor of Cumbia Electronica. KUTX has hailed him as “legendary,” Rolling Stone has said he is at the “Forefront of nu-cumbia” and Billboard claimed “[he is] creating a new and distinctly Latino sound.” As Corpus Christi’s leading man, he has been feeding cumbia into his sound processor and synthesizer before the turn of the millennium as he translates the Southern Texas border experience into new anthems where the MPC2000 sampler and chopped clips of Latin and reggae music history collide.
