DJ Nesty is a reggaetón producer closely associated with superstar duo Wisin & Yandel. Born Ernesto Padilla in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico, he began his recording career as an associate of reggaetón hitmakers Luny Tunes during the early to mid-2000s. Also known simply as Nesty, he made a name for himself apart from Luny Tunes with a pair of hit singles in 2005: "Chulin Culin Chunfly" (by Voltio and Residente, the latter of Calle 13) and "Eso Ehh...!!" (Alexis & Fido). The following year, Nesty produced tracks for high-profile albums by Don Omar (King of Kings, 2006) and Tego Calderón (The Underdog/El Subestimado, 2006), including the hit single "Los Maté" by the latter. Around this same time, Nesty began a close association with Wisin & Yandel, producing much of their album Los Vaqueros (2006), including the hit singles "Pegao," "Yo Te Quiero," and "Nadie Como Tú." In subsequent years he remained closely associated with Wisin & Yandel, producing the bulk of their album Los Extraterrestres (2007), including the chart-topping hit single "Sexy Movimiento," and La Mente Maestra (2008); he was co-billed on the front cover of the latter album. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
