Boombox Cartel is the stage name of Los Angeles-based DJ/Producer Americo Garcia (of Laredo, Texas).

History

Founded by Americo Garcia and writing partner, Jorge Medina, the project taps into their rich and storied heritage to influence their production, resulting in a distinct musical catalog.

In 2017, Americo started touring the project globally, securing sold out shows and prime festival slots at Lollapalooza, Global Dance Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and more. With his intention to bring his music and people from all backgrounds together in every performance, the artist’s built up accreditation in the dance music realm speaks for itself.

Today, Boombox Cartel continues to inspire musical boundaries in his genre-blending output. Alongside releases on record labels such as Mad Decent, OWSLA, and Spinnin, Boombox Cartel has also been featured in prominent publications like Billboard, Noisey, Complex, and DJ MAG, and currently stands as the #1 ranked Mexican DJ in the world.

Boombox Cartel opens 2020 with the highly anticipated Máquina Tour, preceding a full year of new music packed with noteworthy features. The tour will see Garcia span the globe, with dates in Chicago, Dallas, Brooklyn (for his now reoccurring mini-fest Cinco Mode), Denver, Los Angeles, as well as in his home country of Mexico at Plaza Condesa in CDMX. In addition to these headline dates, Boombox Cartel will take his energetic live show to all three Lollapalooza’s in South America, and Bonnaroo.
