GORDO starts off 2023 with ‘R U 4 REAL feat. Marina Maximilian’ out today, February 24th, via Ultra Records.
Guatemalan-American star GORDO has teamed up with Ukrainian superstar Marina Maximilian for a huge tribal house track titled ‘R U 4 REAL’ This record follows last year’s groundbreaking releases with the likes of FEID, The Martinez Brothers, KAS:ST, and the massive success of his 6 co-productions on Drake’s ‘Honestly Nevermind’ album. The sound introduced by GORDO on R U 4REAL promises he’s got lots in store for 2023.
“I didn’t make this record for radio, nor for shows or for Spotify. I made this record for nothing other than my own integrity. I hope you guys are ready for the best piece of art I have ever made.” – GORDO
Recently voted the highest ranked Hispanic DJ in the world by DJMag and #1 producer by Billboard, GORDO topped off a stellar 2022 featuring chart topping singles and multiple sold out shows across the globe with the release of ‘Hombres y Mujeres alongside Colombian superstar FEID. R U 4REAL proves he’s not planning on slowing down this year as he continues to show his commitment to house music and is planning to ramp releases in 2023.
The release has been highly-anticipated by fans and artists alike, including Drake who posted on Instagram: “GORDO finally dropped my anthem”.
His live performances and extended sets currently sit amongst the hottest dance music experiences, whether it’s him performing at his own very TARAKA events as they continue to pop up around the world or attempting to promote ‘marathon sets’ as Gordo continues to DJ for hours on end.

Diamanté Anthony Blackmon has already helped to define a global musical movement. But now he’s doing it again: GORDO is a new house music alias from the artist previously known as Carnage. Ever since Diamanté entered the dance music scene, he’s been educating himself and those around him, inspiring a new sound and a new movement. His quest for this new sound has led to releases such as ‘KTM’, which became an instant Top 10 hit on the Beatport Main Chart, TARAKA, which was named after his own event series, the techno-infused speaker-rattling ‘Leaving Earth’ with KAS:ST, and the widely acclaimed RIZZLA.
His latest release “Hombres y Mujeres” alongside Colombian superstar FEID and recent Latin America tour sees GORDO’s return to his Hispanic roots. The Guatemalan DJ/producer honors his heritage beyond giving back with beats though, as he’s fully committed to helping build schools and education centers in Nicaragua as well as his birth-country of Guatemala.
Already having established his name among dance music enthusiasts, Diamanté solidified his name as GORDO as he broke ground with 6 production on Drake’s latest dance-infused album ‘Honestly Nevermind’, got crowned #1 producer on Billboard’s Hot 100 producers, and #1 Hispanic DJ by DJ Mag. After years of self-discovery, GORDO is now Blackmon’s whole world. It has liberated him and given him the confidence to unleash the sounds that have been deep in his heart for years. From here it is all about making the music he wants to. No going back.
