About ESTA

Filipino-American DJ/producer ESTA has always been one following his own path, whilst teaming up with those trailing the same roads. Growing up in a home with a delicate mixture of hip-hop, R&B and soul - ESTA got hooked on making beats in FL Studio in high-school and gained a following on Tumblr by sampling old TV show's theme songs. After joining the L.A.-based Soulection imprint and crew in 2013, he's grown to be one of their front figures: performing at Coachella (even quitting his job to do so), doing a critically acclaimed Boiler Room set and getting his own Rhythm Roulette episode. But his true passion lies in producing in the studio, as opposed to performing on the stage: "I love playing for people, but I would love to just lock myself in a room and make music all day", as told in an interview with TheFader. So tune in to this Tracklib Live Cookup to catch ESTA performing his passion live in his studio, flipping a Tracklib sample and creating his unique nostalgic yet fresh sound from scratch.

Get a taste of ESTA's sound by checking out his album 'Imagine: Energy', with the intro-track containing a Tracklib sample and sample his work via Tracklib.
