    Santiago Cortes has been producing music for TV and film, and doing regular DJ dance music gigs in the USA, South America, Italy, Spain and Asia. But only in 2004 he collaborated with top professional musicians, engineers and producers in Europe and abroad producing his debut album WELCOME TO MY AIRLINE, released in September 2005; e.g. with the lead singer Skip Martin (Grammy winner, New York) from “Kool and the Gang” and with “Tony Martinez and the Cuban Power” (two time Grammy nominee, New York).

It was as well early in 2005 when Santiago’s Nr. 1 hit single and music video DON`T LEAVE ME was accepted for N1 rotation on Viva Switzerland and on Latin-MTV in Miami, and made the EuropTop 40 within one week of airplay. As well his second single SUPERSTAR released in September 2005 made the Swiss Top 40 within one week and underlined the professional attitued of his work. Late in January 2006 his third single SATURDAY was released in combination with a new video-clip and became another benchmark is Europe House Music. And at last his latest production CRAZY which made the radio charts up to number 1 got appreciation from all over the world. His second album FIRST CLASS is another benchmark in national but in international house music too. Therefor he worked with Kim Cooper (Defected Records), Michael Procter, Lynn Lockamy (McFarlane Productions – ancient Robin S.) or Phil Dankner – all well known artists in the genre of house music giving this second album a unique style and great variability in between electro grooves and chill house. In 2007 Santiago Cortes released his third album IN THE MIX, basically reflecting his knowledge as a DJ which run out of stock in Switzerland within four weeks. But nevertheless, as well his studio work got attention again. With a remix of Samantha Fox`s hit TOUCH ME he produced another benchmark in his career, always ambitious to it better and faster than all the others in the industry. In 2008 Santiago Cortes could as well sign the distribution contracts to distribute all the productions released by his label In The Mix Rec. Music via Kontor Records. This opens new markets, new options and new chances for the artist always looking for growth.
