Toby Holguin dreams music, lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. A band that will make you cry with passion.
Formed by Toby Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds. Toby started out Monsieur Job, as a soloist project creating the album “Bass Pa$$i”, and then decided to form a band with Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia. All of them live and breathe their own style of music. Combined, Toby and Leo are Monsieur Job, and Toby and Charlie Illera are the electronic division called; “MJ”.
Toby and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.
Moreover, their second studio album; Zona de Dropeo and Revisited 2020 have been released this late summer 2019 bringing you 15 consecutive charted singles, 11 in the Billboard Top 10 singles and 4 in the Top 20 such as; “A Escondidas”, “Kick it”, “Boogie..báilalo brincao”, “Pica Pica”, “Bájate las Bragas”, “Busque Mal”, “Muero por ti”, “Vos Sos”, “Me Contagié”, “No Voy A Querer”, “Tanto Tiempo Sin Verte”, “Cucaracha”, Gato por Liebre”, “Gucci Celine”, and “La Clave”. They also peaked on the Top 10 Billboard Annual Artists of 2020 for Digital Latin Sales. As for 2021, they have maintained their efforts with six Billboard hits in the Latin Digital Sales list so far this year. For their debut release, Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow, the record has hit the Euro Indie Music Chart at #1 for 9 consecutive weeks as well as progressive singles; “Kick it” Remix feat. Charly Black, “Pica Pica”, Niña Shake Your Body” feat. No Mercy & Vojke Djans and “Chilliando Hangueando” feat. Cholo, and “La Melancolic Happy” feat. Clindistino reaching the #1 position as well, the Digital Radio Tracker Top 10, and Top 200 for Best Albums, #2 for the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums Chart, and the Billboard Top 10 Heatseekers Albums Chart for their album “Bass Passi”. This album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York. Zona de Dropeo was recorded in Basswalk Studios in Cali and Bogotá.

If recreating genres can be done, then Monsieur Job is up to the task as they bring back what is mostly an ’80s sound that so many music fans wish had never gone away, and so many are glad it did. – Indie Band Guru
The instant appeal exerted by Monsieur Jobs’ first single release “Chow Chow eyyy Pow Pow” is likely the first sign of the staying power this quintet has. We didn’t have to expect something this good. – Vents Magazine
The band’s flawless fusion of Latin rhythms with urban, hip hop/EDM influenced beats is a spectacular success and never seems to strain for its effects. Instead, this music unwinds with a hard strut that hits listeners quick. – No Depression
