In 2019, DJ Castro launched his album Evolution.
In an interview with The Namibian, his manager Fernando Carlos, had this to say about the album;
"The album is very different from what DJ Castro normally does. The DJ is usually known for house music, but this time around went out of his comfort zone."
It took three years for the DJ to finally release the album and he had this to say about what transpired during those years,
“I have been through so much. Also during these years I have learnt a lot about the music industry that has made me wiser. At first my material was stolen and I also struggled to get enough funds together. I have learnt not to trust anyone and also not to allow anyone to listen to my work. This is how my work went missing. It was stolen. I will never ever tell someone where my work is and I will always keep back-ups,”
The album features artists such as Sunny Boy, Lioness, Sally, Jermain Casper and Etjo.
The DJ also released a single featuring Don Makati with Ynot Records and many were jamming to it. DJ Castro and Don Kamati teamed up to work on the track 'Pretty Young Thing' (PYT). DJ Castro said the song was based on his personal about a girl that he once dated when he was in high school.
