About Maffio 

Maffio was born in 1986 in a poor neighborhood in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. His stage name is the result of a humorous nickname given to him by his father. When his parents separated, he moved to East New York in Brooklyn and lived with his father. Though the U.S was his primary residence, he moved back and forth between his parents and soaked up as much music from both countries as he could, playing not only piano but also bass, guitar, and drums. He studied rhythms from bossa nova to cumbia, from merengue to duranguense, and was influenced by electronic music including techno, house, and reggaeton. His first major investment was a computer. He began creating beats and melodies with his piano, bass, and various percussion instruments, multi-tracking them and posting them on MySpace, and later on Facebook. There, he gained enough recognition to get the attention of Manuel Alejandro "Boy Wonder" Ruiz. At 20 he got his first major break and produced "Mi Alma Se Muere" for Fuego, Pitbull, and Omega.
