Sussie4 was formed in the summer of 1998 in Guadalajara, Mexico, by music producer César Gudiño (keyboards, synths, program systems) and instrumentalist Odín Parada (guitar, percussion, voice). They began experimenting with a fusion of organic and electronic music. With strong influences in French house, their sound mixes Latin rhythms with jazz and pop in avant-garde ways. Acid Cabaret, Paris Cuba, Electro Song, and other categories do not describe entirely the eclectic mix that Sussie 4 delivers. The term which best defines their sound is the one that gives title to their debut album, Música Moderna (modern music), released in 2002 by Nopal Beat/EMI. Music from this album was featured in a number of popular compilations of electronic music and helped the band become known in the electronic music scene throughout Australia, Japan, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, and other countries worldwide.In all four of their studio albums, Sussie 4 have collaborated with various well-known Latin singers and artists, such as Denisse Guerrero of Belanova, Alex Sergi of Miranda!, León Larregui of Zoé, Valentina González, and Ely Guerra.

Marcelo C. Baéz is a Mexican-born, California-raised DJ, writer, and composer. He moved to New York City in 2006 to produce Nacotheque, an event which focused on Spanish-sung dance music. Nacotheque became known as “one of the most insane parties in the City” (The Village Voice), earned a following “not only for its up-and-coming acts from Latin American and Spain, but for its beautiful, multiculti, straight and queer crowd” (TimeOut), and was appointed “the place to hang for Latino hipsters” (NY Post.) Marcelo’s sets, always characterized by a blend of old, new, rare and forgotten dance tunes, led the producer to create a new event in 2013. Playfully titled after Gerardo’s crossover pop hit from 1991, "Rico Suave" still focused on promoting Spanish-sung music, but through a collection of updated mashups and remixes (“cumbiaton, tropirock, perreopop”.) The highly-inclusive party celebrated its 5th anniversary on June of 2018 in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Having performed various clubs in Barcelona, Madrid, Brussels, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Puerto Rico, México City, and Bogotá, among other popular hotspots, Marcelo has also participated in a wide variety of events, including Latin Grammy afterparties & The CIELO Gala (The fundraising gala of the Latino Commission on AIDS). When not dabbling in nightlife, “Chelo” records music under P3CULIAR. He’s also written columns for VICE, MTV IGGY, Fusion, Univision, Remezcla, and has been a guest on NPR’s Code Switch podcast.
