Hydra is a Multi-Platinum Music Producer from Puerto Rico. Currently working with independent label "Full Harmony Hits". Some of his most recognized productions include “Me Fijé” By Alex Rose Ft. Rauw Alejandro, "Se Porta Mal, By Arcangel Ft. Alex Rose, "Donde" By Jhay Cortez & Ñengo Flow & "Baby Mama” By Joyce Santana Ft. Luar La L.
I started making music as a hobby in 2012. While still working on my music I enlisted in the U.S Army, and at the same time continued working on my craft. Upon finishing my contract I moved back to Puerto Rico. Later on that year, I was discovered by Full Harmony Hits. Now I work as a full-time producer/engineer/songwriter.
When working with artists I like to converse with them and be able to understand their vision and what it is they’re looking for so that way, I can incorporate not only their vision but, my own as well. My goal is always to help the artist reach the next level in their music and career.
