The origins of Madrid street rap trio Alto Pakto lie with MC/producer Jota y la R and rapper Khavel-Ex, who released maquetas (similar to mixtapes in the U.S.) under the moniker Perversos near the beginning of the 2000s. Rounded out by DJ/producer Pablo Pila in 2003, Perversos became Alto Pakto. After turning down many offers, the Spanish-rapping group signed on with LAM Records and issued the two LPs, Diamante en Bruto (2004), which contained the single "Fahrenheit," and the G-funk-inspired Funkatomic (2005). Part of a circle of hip-hoppers from Torrejón de Ardoz, an urban municipality in Madrid, the group made a name for itself performing all over Spain, next to artists like Juan Profundo, Hazhe, and Sólo los Solos. After Alto Pakto broke up in 2006, Khavel-Ex embarked on a solo career while Jota y la R and Pablo Pila formed the duo D'dRUMMERZ and founded the Proyecto Lexury collective.
