The Munch has done it again.
The Dutch super-producer, best known for his contributions to moombahton, has put out a brand new, high-concept EP that is, of course, pure fire. It’s called Rotterdam Trap EP, and according to Munchi himself, the idea was to take the Dutch-Caribbean club hits popular in Rotterdam when he was a teenager and remix them as wavy trap tracks.
As we learned in our interview a few months back, Munchi is a serious music nerd, so it’s no surprise that he turns music production into an exercise in electronic music history. Most of the tracks on the EP are crunked-out versions of bubbling and Dutch house tracks that were big in the early 2000s, by artists like DJ Chuckie and Gregor Salto. Munchi goes into some detailed description of each track here.
The highlight is his trap version of Afrojack’s “Moombah” remix, perhaps best known for being slowed-down by Dave Nada into the original moombahton track. As it turns out, those slimy Dutch synths sound great with some sub-bass and a Southern hip-hop beat under them.
