Angel was a succesful businessman who ran a fencing company before entering the record business. This was his way to get closer to the music he was in love with.
In 2012 Gerardo Ortiz signed for DEL Records. It is a great success for both because Gerardo became a prominent young Mexican singer, a new wave for Mexican music, and DEL Records signed a popular young singer and gained money since they take a part of his profit.
Sony Music Latin is a music distributing company who is currently distributing DEL Records albums. They signed a special contract with Gerardo Ortiz because of his popularity.
2016 was extremely successful year for DEL Records because the label gained six Billboard Latin Music Awards.
The same year the record company partnered up with Combate Americas, the first Hispanic MMA sports in the US, which was founded in 2011.
