Music producer Flow La Movie, known for his work with major Latin artists including Bad Bunny and Ozuna, was among nine who died Wednesday in a plane crash in the Dominican Republic. He was 38.

A small plane attempting to land minutes after beginning a flight to Florida crashed in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, killing all aboard, including the producer, born José Ángel Hernández, the aircraft’s operating company reported.

Helidosa Aviation Group said on its Twitter account that the Gulfstream jet was carrying two crew members and seven passengers.

USA TODAY has reached out to Hernández's record label for further comment.

The plane had departed from El Higüero airport for Orlando, Fla., shortly before seeking to land at Las Americas International Airport in the Dominican Republic’s capital, Santo Domingo, the company said. The company gave no details on why the pilots aborted the flight or possible causes of the crash.

The airport shut down operations after the accident, canceling hundreds of flights.

Helidosa Aviation said Hernandez was accompanied by six relatives and colleagues. It identified them as Debbie Von Marie Jimenez Garcia, Keilyan Hernandez, Hayden Hernandez, Yeilianys Jeishlimar Melendez Jimenez and Jesiel Yabdiel Silva. The crew members were Luis Alberto Eljuri and Víctor Emilio Herrera, the company said.

Hernández, better known as “Flow La Movie,” produced Urban Latin songs such as “Te Boté” sung by Bad Bunny and Ozuna. He also produced “La Jeepeta” by Nio Garcia, Brray and Juanka and “Wow Remix,” in which artists Bryant Myers, Arcangel, Nicky Jam, El Alfa and Darell participated.

Hernández was the CEO of his own eponymous record label, which represented artists including Nio Garcia, Casper Magico, D.OZi and Xound.
