share close

Music executives Ángel del Villar and Javier “El Tamarindo” González have joined forces to launch a new distribution company, DSTRO7. Del Villar’s indie label, DEL Records, will be exclusively distributed by DSTRO7, as will González’s Tamarindo Rekordsz, which he founded in 2012.

According to a press release, the company will focus on music streaming, monetization, promotion, marketing, data and analytics, and creative services including recording, production, mixing, mastering and video production. DSTRO7 is currently onboarding “a wide variety of clients,” according to a company representative.


The launch of the company follows a massive year for DEL Records. Founded by del Villar in 2008, the label is home to música mexicana supergroup Eslabon Armado, whose global hit, “Ella Baila Sola” with Peso Pluma, became one of the biggest songs of 2023. With more than 600 million on-demand official streams in the United States, according to Luminate, the track landed at No. 1 on the year-end Hot Latin Songs chart. Last year, Eslabon also scored its sixth leader on Billboard‘s Regional Mexican Albums chart.

DEL Records previously had distribution deals with Ingrooves and Virgin Music, although a representative for the label confirms DSTRO7 will now be its exclusive distributor.

The new distribution deal marks a fresh start for Tamarindo Rekordsz. In December 2022, González and regional Mexican star Carin León announced they had mutually agreed to part ways after a five-year relationship, during which León earned his first Latin Grammy win as well as 11 entries on the Hot Latin Songs chart and 10 top 10 songs on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart. Months after the two split, González filed a lawsuit against distribution company Oplaai — Tamarindo’s distributor since 2018 — for copyright infringement over allegations that Oplaai underpaid him for revenue from León’s music.
