Munchi "Metele Ballaco"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
So maybe this whole moombahton thing has some legs after all. What started as Dave Nada slowing down some Dutch house tunes to appease his Latin-music-loving little cousins is beginning to blossom into a full-fledged movement. Enter Munchi, a producer from the Netherlands who has previously dabbled in dubstep, B-more, bubbling, baile funk, and a number of other genres. But now he's unveiled the Moombahton Promo EP—which can be downloaded for free from his blog—and dude has seriously upped the ante on this nascent style. The entire EP is loaded with infectiously blaring synths and rumbling reggaeton beats, but "Metele Ballaco" is especially potent with its "Planet Rock" samples and fired-up raps en español.
