This Dominican producer from Rotterdam is one of the most promising and innovative producers to date in this new genre – Moombahton. Rayiv Munch, famous worldwide as “Munchi”, has very quickly become a big player in the worldwide club scene, pioneering Moombahton as well morphing new forms of Juke, Bubbling, Cumbia, Kuduro, Breakcore, Bmore and more. Having already toured the US playing with Dave Nada, DJ Sabo, Diplo and the Mad Decent team, dropped a couple of tracks on MIA’s notorious Vicki Leekx mixtape and hit summer festivals (main stages at Sonar, Roskilde, Fusion, Sfinks) in Europe this year he’s been getting bigger with every move.
One should not mention Munchi at this point without mentioning “Moombahthon” a new genre of music which crosses Reggaeton with slowed down Dutch House. Although DJ Dave Nada is credited with creating the genre, it is Munchi who is the most consistent production whiz affiliated with it. Dave Nada about Munchi “I’d say the best one in the game right now is Munchi from Rotterdam. He’s the new kid on the block. He’s 21 years old and has been producing Reggaeton and Club music for a good while, and he stumbled upon my Moombahton EP and became reinspired to create some new shit ha. He’s an incredible producer, he just kinda legitimize the sound and push it in an exciting new direction.
