About Yomil y El Dany

Yomil y El Dany is a Cuban reggaeton duo comprised of Roberto Hidalgo Puentes (Yomil) and Daniel Munoz (El Dany). Hidalgo was a mechanic and Muñoz a medical student, both were veterans of the island nation's vibrant reggaeton scene. They initially got together as DpuntoD, and achieved moderate success in clubs and on social media, but split in 2011. When they reunited officially in 2015, they differentiated themselves with a much more aggressive approach: integrating their gritty, pumped-up urban sound with trap, electronic, American reggaeton, and rap, called "trapton." Their first single, "Tengo," was a remix of Nicki Minaj's "Truffle Butter." It stormed club charts in Cuba and Miami. Dozens of videos followed, enlarging their social media footprint. Their debut album, Doping, was released later in the year and featured the singles "Rikabery" and "Estamos Ta' Po.' Their sophomore long-player, Sobredosis, was issued in May of the following year and in summer hit the Top Latin Albums chart.
