Luis Figueroa is a multi-talented two-time Latin GRAMMY® nominated Puerto Rican singer-songwriter and one of the most promising artists of this decade. From child talent to YouTube stardom the Philadelphia born native’s journey has taken him to some of the most prestigious stages around the world, working alongside some of the greatest icons in the industry.

Luis was nominated for his first two Premio Lo Nuestro awards in 2022 for “Tropical Artist of the Year” and “Tropical Song of the Year” solidifying his status as one of the leading voices and rising stars of the salsa genre. His self-titled second studio album, Luis Figueroa, released in May 2022, is a collection of songs that represent the different phases of falling in love, complete with a tropical energy full of percussion and trombones while highlighting his dynamic vocals. The album spawned three #1 tropical hit singles including, “Todavía Te Espero”, “Vienes” and “Fiesta Contigo”, all written by Luis. The album received two Latin GRAMMY® and three Premio Lo Nuestro nominations. The album was selected by Billboard as one of “The 22 Best Latin Albums of 2022”. In the fall, he toured with El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico and Marc Anthony.

DJ Mischievous began DJ'ing 10 years ago coincidentally when a controller was gifted to her. At the time it was just going to be a hobby for her to do after school with friends. Soon she learned that she had a passion for music but a true talent as well. She has gone from practicing in her bedroom to headlining for other artists, playing in Los Angeles, growing a platform on TikTok and having a Top 5 Radio show.
