Alright people— Munchi is back in town. The Dutch-Dominican dembow don will be taking the controls at DROM tonight in the East Village alongside Sazon Booya and NYC’s Funk Carioca queen Zuzuka Poderosa. $10. More info.
Imagine Rotterdam’s signature hardcore sound (frenetic, distorted kick drums, aggressive synths, samples from violent cult films) filtered through hip-centric Reggaeton swagger with layers of Merengue & Bachata guitars and shakers and all that shit. You might call it moombahton but I’d rather not because Munchi stands apart from the rest of what has become a white-washed vanilla bro-fest. Did I say that?
