Félix Danilo Gómez, better known as FLEX began his musical career ten years ago, but it wasn’t until the year 2000 when a reggae producer gave him the opportunity to record an album along with other artists. His song “Dejala” started receiving heavy airplay, not only in his native Panama, but also in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Honduras, Peru and Ecuador.
FLEX recorded another song, “Tus Recuerdos”, a song that thanks to its lyrics, heart and soul immediately became a favorite for many and a Mother’s Day anthem because of FLEX’s interpretation. He had lost his mother that same year so he imprinted his performance with all the feelings he was going through at the time making it a very powerful song. Thanks to the success of “Tus Recuerdos,” the song was also recorded as a ballad and in a reggae version.
FLEX arrives to Mexico and the United States proving that it hasn’t been easy to become one of the most popular performers in the last decade. After ten years of hard work, he showed the world that it’s never too late to look for new opportunities, reach your goals and become a musical phenomenon with his own particular brand, “Romantic Style”. His lyrics, infused with Jamaican and Panamanian influences, have made him popular not only for his music, but also for his extraordinary charm.
“Te Quiero” was his astonishing debut. One of the biggest hits of all time, it quickly became the most played song all over Latin America and the US. Only in 2008, FLEX sold out more than 150 shows in Mexico and more than 60 all over the continent; that would be more than one million people of all ages singing along this talented performer.
In 2009, FLEX released a new single “Dime si te vas con el”, co-written by him and Fernando Cabrera “Saik”. With a fusion of Latin rhythms, this song is precisely the Evolution of the Romantic Style, which is aptly the name of the album that includes it. “La Evolucion Romantic Style” was produced by Victor Delgado “Predicador” and was released on January 27th, 2009 in Mexico and the US.
During 2009, FLEX continued with the promotion of his second album, and right after the success of “Dime si te vas con el” he released “Te Amo Tanto” which also became an instant hit. A concert tour through all of Latin America followed.
Just in August of this past year, FLEX received Platinum Record for the sales of his album La Evolución Romantic Style, in the US and Puerto Rico. He was also part of a huge free concert that took place at the well known Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City, along with many other artists to promote tourism in that country.
