Pablo Diaz-Reixa, the Spanish composer, producer, musician and DJ known as El Guincho, has renewed his publishing contract with Warner/Chappell Music. The deal will also cover other artists and songwriters who he signs to his new production and publishing company, Rico Publishing.
El Guincho has been in the spotlight of late for Rosalía’s “El Mal Querer,” which he co-wrote and co-produced with the singer. The album was a No. 1 album in Spain and took the top spot on Billboard’s Latin Pop chart. The record’s breakthrough single “Malamente” won a 2018 Latin Grammy.
El Guincho shares writing credits and performs on “Con Altura,” Rosalía’s latest single featuring J Balvin.
“El Guincho is an incredible creative force whose influences range from Afrobeat to tropicália, and dub to rock,”Santiago Menendez-Pidal, managing director of Warner/Chappell Music Spain, said in a statement. “It’s been an immense pleasure to support his stellar career to date and I’m delighted that he’s invested his trust in us again. And we’re delighted to back his new venture, Rico Publishing, which is sure to be a hotbed of talent.”
