The son of Ecuadorian immigrants raised in West Palm Beach, Diablo got his nickname from his grandmother, who quickly observed his mischievous nature. The artist started making beats as a teenager in the early days of Florida’s SoundCloud boom, befriending and collaborating with local artists like wifisfuneral and Lil Pump. He was the man behind the boards for Pump’s platinum smash single “Boss,” and spent time as Pump’s tour DJ. Widely respected in rap circles for his collaborations with Kodak Black, Ski Mask The Slump God, and Craig Xen, among others, his raucous DJ sets have earned him in an audience in the electronic music world, with a co-sign from Diplo and a recent tour with Dillon Francis and Alison Wonderland.
