Marco Masís, artistically known as Tainy, is a reggaeton producer. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, he entered the world of reggaeton with his work on Mas Flow 2.

Musical career[edit]

After meeting with Nely "El Arma Secreta", he gave Luny his demo. Luny liked what he heard and signed Tainy to his team.[1] When Tainy was 15, Nely loaned him FL Studio XXL for producing. Tainy practiced with it for a whole year until he mastered it.

The first assignment Tainy received from Luny, was to see if he really had what it took. Luny liked the first song he worked on so much that he ended up using it for Mas Flow 2.

Tainy co-produced (with Luny Tunes) the Los Benjamins album,[2] producing 15 of the tracks. He has worked as a producer with Wisin & Yandel, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, and Wise.[3][4]

He has received three Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) Awards, which are annually awarded to songwriters, composers and music publishers of the year's most-performed songs in the BMI catalog, for Wisin & Yandel's "Abusadora"[5] and "Pam Pam"[6] and Ivy Queen's "La Vida Es Así".[7]
