Temperatures have already been rising on the East Coast, but this week New York City is getting a serious injection of tropical heat courtesy of Joyce Muniz. The Brazilian (by way of Austria) artist is making her first trip to America and, starting this Thursday, is making stops at a number of our favorite Latin and global bass hotspots in the Big Apple.
Muniz was born in Sao Paulo, but relocated to Vienna in the mid-'90s. Shortly thereafter, she delved into the city's electronic music scene and began DJing at the age of 16. Combining her Brazilian roots and love of tropical rhythms with banging European club sounds, she's since teamed up with producers like Stereotyp and Shanti Roots and released tracks on labels such as Top Billin and Man Recordings.
In advance of her US trek, she's put together an exclusive mixtape for XLR8R. You can download that here and view the full playlist and her tour dates below.
