ABOUT RICKY VAUGHN
Called the “Trap Lord”, “Moombahton King” & “Twerk Ambassador”, Ricky Vaughn is bridging the gap between hip-hop and electronic production. Starting out as Mr. Vega, the Brooklyn native served as the producer of the moombahton 3-piece Sazon Booya, whose debut EP “La Bomba” (Jul. ’11) quickly became a seminal release in the then-blossoming moombahton scene, earning them a coveted slot on Skrillex’s 2011 Mothership Tour & propelling them to share stages with Zedd, Munchi, Laidback Luke, and many others. Soon after, Sazon Booya disbanded, & Vega quickly re-emerged as the trap, moombahton & twerk triple threat Ricky Vaughn.
In 2013, Ricky Vaughn released four EPs to much critical acclaim from the blogosphere, and five singles from those EPs reached Beatport’s Top 20 Singles chart. He’s received huge praise from Vibe Magazine, DJ Mag, White Raver Rafting, TrapMusic.net, Moombahton.Net, and Your EDM, all labeling him as an artist to watch. His tracks are supported by artists like Diplo, Bassnectar, Skream & Benga, Bro Safari, Dirty South Joe, Munchi, DJ Craze, Nadastrom, ETC!ETC!, 12th Planet, Nick Thayer, Skism, Doctor P, and Reid Speed to name a few. His unique sounds and standout drum patterns are what make him a leader in the wave of fresh producers in the new century.
