Having entered the Top 100 last year, Guatemala's leading DJ and producer, Francis Davila, has had an even bigger 2012.
"It has been a year full of blessings," he says humbly. "Being able to visit different places, performing in front of thousands of people and feeling their love and energy, has made me appreciate my fans more and more each day.
"Francis also uses his fame for the greater good, taking part in the recent anti-violence, Voices For Peace concert in Guatemala. "Being chosen as one of the top representatives of music in the Central American region and going on a massive tour," have been among the highlights of 2012, he says. "As well as seeing my face on a special edition of beer cans!" With many tipping South America as the next dance music Mecca, it's certain that Francis will be at the very forefront of the region's musical revolution.
