Record label owner, producer and DJ extraordinaire, A.Skillz' incredible deck talents fuse funk, soul and hip-hop with D'n'B, dub-step and breaks, all sliced, mashed and cut together with a unique style of scratching and mixing. His reputation as a true party rocker has won him prime-time slots across the world at a 'who's who' of major events.
Half papa, half monkey, really means Universe! Diego Novoa aka El Papachango grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he began his career as sound engineer and dj, tinkering around with speakers and amps at the ripe age of fifteen. In 1997, Diego moved to Ashland,
Oregon, where he fell in love with the magic of "La Pacha Mama" (Mother Earth). It was this romance that birthed El Circo, the multimedia production company encompassing performance, music, video, fashion, installations, all underneath the ceiling of a giant geodesic dome and surrounded with Bag End bass.
They call him El Papachango
because he mixes from a diverse palette of electro, ragga, breaks, and hip-hop, creating a musical journey that has Universal appeal: sassy, playful, suave, and sometimes downright naughty, but always with a spicy Latin flavor.

"The drive to make music is more or less my life, it's like asking someone what inspires them to breathe. Music just is in me somehow and I just need to let it out on the regular. That keeps me sane, regular, and functioning. To me there is a very strong energy and feeling that comes with sharing music or art with people. It's like the more music that I let out, the more positive energy is able to come in…" - Knight Riderz
