When asked about his influences, Ospina says, “It was my neighborhood that exposed me to such a wide variety of music. I was really inspired by the New York break-dancing scene. The music at that time was so exciting and made you want to move. I felt the need to contribute to that.” With an impressive list of productions and remixes for English and Spanish artists, 2006 brought Ospina his first #1 hit: the chart-topping remix of Christina Aguilera’s “Ain't No Other Man", which hit #1 on the Billboard Club Charts and Radio Charts in September 2006 only 1 week after release.
Christina was quoted as saying that it is her favorite remix version. The biggest DJs in the world, from Sanchez to Knuckles and everyone in between, are playing his mix. In August, Morales opened his birthday party at Stereo in Montreal with Ospina’s remix and the crowds cheered. “Ain’t No Other Man” is being heard in clubs all over the world, from the beaches of Australia to Ibiza, where it has become a summer favorite.
Davidson Ospina’s name and label, Ospina Digital Records, are quickly becoming a household name in the industry and the press. Ospina’s remixing credits include work with Britney Spears (“Baby, One More Time”), Backstreet Boys, Pet Shop Boys, and Dimitri From Paris. His Spanish-language remixes are also notable, working with such artists as Enrique Iglesias, Albita, Gloria Estefan, and Mark Anthony, as well as projects like Cabas "Tu Boca" and Magic Juan “Ultima Vez”. When asked about it, Davidson feels blessed and gives a lot to being a musician and DJ. “Keyboards opened the door, to working with other producers, and artists. Understanding musical changes keep my productions moving with an artist vocal.
At the same time I work at building energy that will keep the dance floor happy. The DJing keeps me fresh, and helps me see what directions the crowds are moving and what is exciting to them directly,” says Ospina. Davidson’s career shifted into high gear with the launch of his record labels, SPINA RECORDS and OSPINA DIGITAL RECORDS. Product from his label can be found on Traxsource.com, Beatport.com, Stompy.com, itunes and many others. In addition, his entrepreneurial side created a web design company, TOMA MEDIA, which offers great solutions and tools for people in the music industry.
TOMA MEDIA has created groundbreaking software for Publicity, Marketing & Promotional companies. The MP System™, designed by Ospina himself, is being used for the distribution of promotional material for SAW Recordings, Deep Haven Music, Media Services NYC, Ovidpek, and others. By reputation, Ospina can usually be found spinning at the funky underground spots of the Lower East Side in NYC. His gigs in Italy, Spain, Canada and Central America, where he recently toured for Marlboro, have kept his appeal diverse and fresh.
Davidson Ospina is firmly rooted in the music industry and continues to thrive in all his endeavours. He’s the one to watch for 2007. :DISCOGRAPHY: / Remixes / Christina Aguilera “Ain’t No Other Man” RCA Records Britney Spears “Baby, One More Time” (2005 Remix) Jive/Sony Gala “I like the Way You” EMI/France Linda Clifford “How Long” RGP Style Of Eye “We Got You” Stylus Records Bear Who? “U Step” Hot Hands Feat.
