Los Hermanos literally translated from Spanish into English means "The
Brothers". But for those involved in Los Hermanos it means much more. It
means a coming together of people from different cultures,

Los Hermanos is the brainchild of Gerald Mitchell and DJ Rolando Rocha.
After their immensely successfull underground smash "Jaguar" released by

fledgling label idea as it became painfully obvious from the massive
response of the Latino and Black house music communities and the
tech/house movement worldwide that more music of this style was needed!
In 2002 after 4 years of whitelabel testing Los Hermanos was launched
as an UR imprint label. With the first official release (LH-001)
entitled "The Birth of 3000" a record that celebrated long time Detroit
mainstay Submerge Distribution's move to a new building located on the
same street as former Detroit powerhouse "Motown" was located on. It was
clear that Detroit indeed had birthed a new sound.
