Both raised by immigrant Dominican parents, Danny D, 21, was born and grew up in the Bronx, and Steve Styles, 20, was born in uptown Manhattan before moving to the Bronx. Always living both urban and Latin culture, they felt motivated to mesh the romantic beats that American Latinos were listening to with the traditional love songs of their parents’ madre patria. Created and formed in 2003, XTREME began with only Danny D at the young age of 17 because of his tremendous talent and passion for music. After countless auditions and practices, Steve Styles joined in February of 2004 to complete the duo.
