MadMusick is responsible for major hits like Daddy Yankee’s “Limbo” and Maluma’s “La Temperatura” (which they co-wrote and co-produced).

The Rivera brothers, who also go by Yan MadMusick and Yon MadMusick, have also written and produced tracks for the likes of Yandel (“Moviendo caderas”) and Alexis y Fido (“Rompe la cintura”).

They’re currently working on new projects with Maluma, Don Omar and Nacho’s upcoming single featuring Wisin and Randy Malcom.

“MadMusick speaks to a young global audience,” Ana Rosa Santiago, VP Latin Music at UMPG, said in a statement. “While they specialize in urban music, they work across genres and generations, writing and producing music with artists from many different backgrounds. I’m thrilled to welcome them to UMPG.”

“After a long time searching for the right publishing house, we found the company that believes in us and in our vision,” the Rivera brothers said in a statement.
