Machete Music is an urban music label owned by Universal Music Group. The record label had been largely associated with reggaeton music, but in recent years, it has been also been signing non-urban artists such as Malverde, Mala Rodriguez and Chino XL[2][3]. The label is part of Universal Music Latin Entertainment. Machete Music is one of the strongest label mainly about Reggaeton after WY Records which is owned by duo Wisin Y Yandel.

According to Toy Selectah (also known as Toy Hernández, A&R of the label from 2004 to 2007), its president Gustavo López "suggested the name Machete, in part because of Control [ Control Machete, Hernández's former band] and also because in Puerto Rico machete means cock".[1]
