Wrap up here from amazing artist, Iztel Xoco.  Check her full post here.  Featuring some of her photos below!

The (long) night was a cross spectrum of diaspora dance sounds, from the dembow of Dj Wyldlyfe, to full-out moombahton of Sazon Booya, to the bailefunk of DJ Comrade (shouts on the live mpc cut up of ‘N*ggas in Paris’) to miss Zuzuka Poderosa rocking the very hard job of wowing a crowd to applause right before the headliner (highlight was her debut performance of ‘Psicodelia’ off her Carioca Bass EP – she went ALL OUT) to the official rocking of the house by Munchi; I felt the floor tremble from every soul in the room jumping up and down in pure adulation.

It felt like worship; Munchi lead a sermon that laced Africa, Europe, Miami and New York bass to our faces.  So excited for his ‘Moombahtonista‘ debut EP from Mad Decent coming in February.  And if you did not see this amazing documentary ‘My Son, The DJ’ featuring his mother in Rotterdam, you’re sleeping.  Candela transnacional!

Saw a lot of beautiful people in the house.  Thanks for Remezcla for getting some photos and I am sure video is coming soon (I’ll update this post when I get them). Also big shout to Carlos Guzman & Uptown Collective who got some of Munchi’s live set up on Soundcloud.

Very proud to have hosted this as part of my #FUTUREROOTS series.  Onto the next!
