WCM RENEWS DEAL WITH CASTA
9/13/23

WCM U.S. and WCM Colombia have renewed their publishing deal with CASTA, neé Luis Miguel Gómez Castaño, in partnership with Edgar Barrera’s BorderKid Publishing.

Last year, the multi-platinum Latin producer co-produced KAROL G & Becky G’s 23x multi-platinum, award-winning hit, “MAMIII,” as well as Manuel Turizo's "La Bachata,” which has amassed 1b+ streams.

"I'm thrilled to continue working alongside Warner Chappell, and to now also add BorderKid to the equation," said CASTA. "With this team backing me, I will keep on working to reinvent my music and collaborate with rising talent."

“CASTA is the epitome of musicianship and true talent,” added Gustavo Menéndez, president, U.S. Latin & Latin America, WCM. “We’re honored that he’s continuing to trust us as his publishing home and excited to work with Edgar and his BorderKid Publishing team.”

“Adding CASTA to my BorderKid Publishing and management team has been a great achievement. He has all the qualities we're looking for; he's creative, talented, and has a great work ethic and an amazing energy,” shared Barrera.

Beginning his career as a musical director for artists such as Manuel Turizo, Sebastian Yatra, Morat and Manuel Medrano, CASTA worked as a producer for The Voice USA for two years before becoming a full-time producer/composer in 2020 for acts like Ricky Martin, Maluma, Ozuna, Zion y Lennox and Arcangel, among others.
