To speak about DJ Playero may not sound like a big thing until you figure out that DJ Playero was the first to discover a young reggaeton enthusiast like Daddy Yankee. DJ Playero was among the first to fuse reggae, hip hop and freestyles in Spanish, finding the reggaeton we know today. His particular vision of the genre can be discovered this night at Roto.
