Official Trapeton Summer Bash Pre-Party
Tokischa (Dominican Republic)
Emerging in the late 2010s with a hedonistic take on trap and dembow, Dominican rapper Tokischa made her commercial breakthrough in 2021, releasing high-profile collaborations with reggaeton hits like J Balvin (“Perra”) and Rosalía (“Linda”). Born Tokischa Altagracia Peralta Juárez, Dominican rapper Tokischa grew up in the Los Frailes neighborhood of Santo Domingo and studied fine arts and playwriting as a teenager. During her career as an aspiring model, she crossed paths with photographer Raymi Paulus, who encouraged the then 20-year-old to focus on her singing talent. Impressed by her first studio sessions, Paulus signed her to his Paulus Music label to launch a solo career as a musician. Tokischa began her career with a confident, trap-driven sound: she debuted in 2018 with “Pícala.” In 2019 and 2020, she moved into the spotlight with a series of collaborations: Eladio Carrión, Rochy RD and Jamby El Favo. The artist, who quickly gained attention for her unique vocal style and heavily sexualized verses, shifted to dembow and reggaeton in the early 2020s, beginning 2021 with “Tukuntazo” and “Yo No Me Voy Acostar.” Her breakthrough came later that year with the J Balvin collaboration “Perra” – a reference to the image of the bitch in heat. A second major-label collaboration with Rosalía was even more successful, “Linda,” in which the duo teamed up for a hard-hitting back-to-back banger to close out the year. In 2022, she continued that commercial breakthrough with the Marshmello-produced dance floor hit “Estilazo,” the second Rosalía collaboration “La Combi Versace” and even a single with pop icon Madonna (“Hung Up”). The raunchy “Delincuente,” with verses by Anuel AA and Ñengo Flow, became one of her biggest hits to date. At Coachella 2023, she performed on stage with Rosalia.
Ryan Castro (Colombia)
Colombian singer and songwriter Ryan Castro is known for his Latin pop, hip-hop and reggaeton style. He made his breakthrough with singles such as “Morena” (2017) and “Medellin” (2020). In 2022, he delivered both “Reggaetonea” and “Los Piratas.”
Castro was born in 1994 in the Pedregal neighborhood of Medellín, Colombia, and became interested in singing and hip-hop at an early age. By his teenage years, he was performing and eventually moved to Curacao, where he performed in hotels, clubs and restaurants. There he released songs online that went viral and caught the attention of singer Kevin Roldan, who signed him to his label. In 2017, he released the single “Morena,” which helped him grow his fan base. More songs followed, including “Miami,” “Woman” and “Secreto.” He also collaborated with Maycol Riddim on “Nunca Imagine” and released “Campeón” and “Cositas” in 2019. By 2020, he had more hits with Roldan, including “Dime” (featuring DBwoy) and “Pensándote, Jamaica” with Massianello. Also in the same year, he had a hit with “Medellín,” a collaboration with Roldan and Reykon. Other titles followed, including 2020’s “Lejanía,” 2021’s “Hay Amores” and 2021’s “Jordan” (inspired by basketball legend Michael Jordan). “Wasa Wasa” was released in August 2021, along with “Monastery” with Feid and “Chupable” with El Alfa and Chiky Bom Bom “La Pantera.” He ended the year with a tour with Karol G. In January 2022, he released the seven-track album “Reggaetonea,” which featured Farina, Ovi and Blessd, among others.
