1. Introduction

Edmundo Gómez Moreno (born 17 February 1991), better known by his stage name Raymix, is a Mexican musician and aerospace engineer. Nicknamed El Rey de la Electrocumbia, Raymix started his music career in the early 2010s, when he joined a trance project called Light & Wave with two other Mexican musicians. Their song "Feeling the City" was featured on the Armin van Buuren radio show A State of Trance. In 2013, Raymix was invited to work in a NASA educative internship, where he helped to develop a satellite.

Around 2015, Raymix gained popularity thanks to the song "Oye Mujer", a well-known track among tianguis sellers, sonideros, and illegal music distributors. Raymix signed with Universal Music Latin Entertainment and in 2018 he released his debut album Oye Mujer. During the same year, "Oye Mujer" was re-released as single and also was remixed and released as a duet with Colombian singer Juanes. The song topped the Billboard Tropical Songs chart. Additionally, it reached number 6 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, and has been certified 14× Multi-Platinum (Latin) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Diamond + 2× Platinum by the Mexican Asociación Mexicana de Productores de Fonogramas y Videogramas (AMPROFON).

2. Early Life and Career

Edmundo Gómez Moreno was born on 17 February 1991, in San José El Vidrio,[1] a community located in Nicolás Romero, State of Mexico.[2] Multiple members of his family are musicians, including his grandfather, his cousin,[3] and his father is a grupero musician.[1] When he was a child, Gómez learn to play the keyboard, and his father taught him Los Tigres del Norte songs.[1] Additionally, he learned singing and to play the drum kit, the guitar and the organ at church.[1]

On his 18th birthday, Gómez was given a MIDI controller, with which he started to compose trance songs.[1] Between 2011 and 2012, Gómez joined two other Mexican musicians and they created Light & Wave. Their song "Feeling the City" was featured on two episodes of the Armin van Buuren radio show A State of Trance.[1][4] Around this time, Gómez was studying aerospace engineering at the Instituto Politécnico Nacional, in Mexico City, for a space systems degree.[1] In 2013, Gómez joined a NASA education internship, where he helped to develop an education satellite.[1][5] During his time there, he listened to cumbias and, in 2014,[6] he composed "Oye Mujer". According to Raymix, Alberto Pedraza (composer of "Guaracha sabrosona") borrowed him his loudspeakers, and with two cellphones and 3,000 pesos he recorded a music video for the song.[1] In 2015, Gómez was unable to get a job in the US despite his academic formation and qualifications.[7]

2.3. Music Style and Stage Name

Raymix defines his music style as a mixture of electronic music subgenres (trance, house, chill-out, and ambient) with cumbia, which he calls "electrocumbia".[3] His stage name is a combination of a nickname, "Ray", and "Mix" because of his interest in electronic music. A friend of his coined it while at college.[3] Raymix is also known as "El Rey de la Electrocumbia"[32] (English for "The King of Electrocumbia").[33]

3. Personal Life

On 5 June 2020, Raymix released a video where he came out as gay,[33] saying "Today I am freer, happier than ever because now I know that I can express myself as I really am", and added that some acquaintances advised him to not do so because they consider that people are not prepared for a gay regional or cumbia musician.[34]
