Allowing him to involved in remixes a few notable singles for his label Yoruba Records, Ezel made his entrance into the big stage of independent and soulful dance music, first releasing a full length album “Secreto” under african/roots oriented soulful house label “Ocha Records”, led by influential DJ and producer Carlos “Casamena” Mena who helped to shape Ezel sound among the line of the deeply spiritual and soulful sexiness.

In 2012 after finishing school in Barcelona, he settled yet again in Dominican Republic to face a stage of personal growth and a re-definition of goals. Even tho his work stills maintains a wide appeal on the realm of soulful dance music, he has refocused towards the personal improvement of his musical skills, and has been getting in touch with more musicality oriented influences such as Jazz, soul and the ethnic traditional sounds of his homeland. As he explore what is to become of his next full length album and if wether this will be presented again in solo mode or now will a full fledged music band, he continues to play his instrument for some of the most relevant acts in his country such as upcoming star Vicente Garcia and folk/racine experimental artist Canadian-Hatian singer Sara Renelik among others.
