About The Artist

Puerto Rican songwriter and producer Mora pushes reggaetón forward with an atmospheric, reflective style that mixes trap, tropical, and alternative. He collaborated with stars such as Joyce Santana, Farruko, and Bad Bunnybefore releasing his eclectic debut album, Primer Día de Clases, in 2021. Two follow-ups appeared in 2022: Microdosis arrived in April while Paraiso appeared in November.

Gabriel Mora Quintero was born in Bayamón, Puerto Rico in 1992. After watching his cousin produce tracks, he began making music of his own in 2015, working with artists like Eladio Carrión and Jon Z before he started uploading his originals to SoundCloud. Several tracks appeared in 2017, with “Pensabas” (featuring Brray, Carrión, and Joyce Santana) emerging as a major word-of-mouth hit. 2018’s “Que Habilidad” followed suit, and Noah Assad, manager of superstar Bad Bunny, signed Mora to Rimas Entertainment. The artist continued releasing songs at a rapid pace, including “Si Tu No Estas” (with Myke Towers) and 2019’s “El Recuerdo.” He made several appearances on Bad Bunny‘s record-breaking 2020 full-length YHLQMDLG, guesting on the song “Una Vez” and co-producing two others. Mora’s debut album, Primer Día de Clases (“First Day of School”), arrived in 2021, including collaborations with Farruko, Jhay Cortez, Lunay, and others. One of its songs, “Volando,” was remixed with Bad Bunny and Sechand became a major streaming hit. Mora’s sophomore album, Microdosis, appeared in April 2022, aided by guest spots from Feid, Jhay Cortez, and Elena Rose. He followed it the same year with Paraiso, a second full-length. Among its 14 tracks were collaborations with De La Ghetto on “AirBnB” and Danny Ocean on “Eivissa.” The latter entered the Top Latin Albums charts at number four and landed in the Top 200 album list.
