Mr. Pauer™ (Toto González) is a Latin Grammy® Nominated producer and re-mixer born in the Caribbean city of Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela, based in Miami, FL. for over 21 years.

He is considered one of the pioneers in the new sounds of Latin electrónica receiving recognition for his debut album “Soundtrack” earning him a nomination for “Best Alternative Album” in the 12th annual Latin Grammy® Awards. He is a music connoisseur and researcher of percussive rhythms from around the world. 

Mr. Pauer is the creator of his signature sound called "Electrópico", a fusion of electronic dance music mixed with music genres originated between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn like Salsa, Zouk, Reggae, Cumbia, Dancehall, Merengue, Kuduro, etc. creating a unique sound born in Miami. 

“Living back in Venezuela I grew up listening to Anglo and Spanish rock, my mother used to listen to boleros, my dad to traditional Venezuelan music, my older brothers to American 80’s pop, and to socialize I had to learn how to dance salsa and merengue. Magically after years, I connected the dots unconsciously creating an array of sounds that identify with the culture I grew up with.” -Mr. Pauer
