Soooooo everybody happy…Moombahtonistas, Reggaetoneros, Dembowlovers…Munchi is back…not.
But there is a cool new release on his label and sure you can here the influence. Really love some of the Tunes, so check it out it’s a “Name your Price” Album and you can get it easy on Bandcamp. So spent some bucks.
After the Dominican youth got into Reggeton and later creating an entire scene on their own strength with Dominican Rap, Dembow was making noise on the island with tracks like ‘Pepe’ by Doble T y El Crok. There was a big longing for the riddims found on the Playero tapes, that the polished sounds of Reggeton simply were not providing anymore. Ever since Dembow made an entrance back then in ’09/’10, Dominican Rap was getting on the background and Reggeton seemed to be forgotten about. This was the new sound and it was only after a couple of years of evolving, that the sound finally started to create it’s own identity.
In comes Amsterdam based Godwonder, also of Dominican heritage, to present his 7 track EP. After 2 years, we present his unbiased vision of Dembow. Influenced by Dembow’s “cousins” Reggeton and Moombahton, but also by the islands own Merengue and Mambo, to show how it’s done. People have been sleeping on it for too long, so we decided to crash the parties at ADE to wake everybody the fuck up!
