99 Classics are an outstanding product, they sound amazing and they are the most gorgeous thing in my studio. I love how they look, how they feel and how they sound.

Sotomayor is the electronic music project with Latin American influence by siblings Raul and Paulina Sotomayor. It is a dance music project that rescues rhythms like cumbia, afrobeat and Peruvian "chicha" and fuses them with cutting-edge beats. Their first LP is called "Salvaje" and it was published in March 2015 by the Mexican NetLabel "Tropic -All ", and the UK label "New Hispanic Music".

The album has 11 original tracks and was produced by Edi Kistler (bassist of the legendary Mexican rock band "Liquits").

Raul is best known as one half of “Beat Buffet”, a band that in 2013 published his debut album "Juegue", selected as the "Best Funk/Jazz/Fusion album of the Year" by IMAS (Independent Music Awards). He is also the creator of “DayOff", a Sunday afternoon party that took place in Mexico City that presented “Global bass” acts like Dengue Dengue Dengue (Peru), Schlachthofbornx (Germany), Uproot Andy (USA) and Frikstailers (Argentina) to name a few.

Paulina is also the drummer of the rock/folk band "Jefes del Desierto".

Despite the short lifetime of the project, the innovative sound of the band allowed them to debut in the 2015 edition of "Vive Latino", and perform several festivals around the globe in countries like England, the US, and Colombia.

Their second album “Conquistador” was released in May 2017.
