Did you get wild last month with Dave Nada, Canblaster
Chan? We sure did. That tropical goodness was resonating through SOM
, kicking off summer in the best way possible. This month we have Munchi
, who picked up what Mr. Nada started and ran with it...hard
and fast. Staying true to form of our Lights Down Low summer series, this second installment is an extension of the first. All the moombahton/tropical bass madness is back and we can't wait to bring it up another notch. Lunice's LDL debut will bring the face melting bass while Dubbel Dutch is back to show you why we love him so damn much. You can't lose...

ABOUT MUNCHI: In the spring of 2010, an unknown kid from the Netherlands named Munchi sent Dave Nada a handful of Moombahton tracks, which he passed around to his friends. Since then, Munchi has gone from being a few DJs' best kept secret to a highly sought-after producer. He's been cranking out monthly promo EPs all year, with everything from Baltimore Club, Kuduro, Baile Funk and Cumbia to House, Breakcore and deep Dubstep. But genre labels do Munchi a disservice, as every track combines elements from different styles and influences. A Dominican kid living in Rotterdam, he has been making reggaeton with Dutch influences since way before Dave coined Moombahton, and all sorts of weird shit before "Tropical" became a blanket term for the global bass movement. Simply put, he's in the list of our favorite new producers and his tracks are insane. He is going to tear up Lights Down Low and you need to be there to witness it.
ABOUT LUNICE: Lunice Fermin Pierre II has taken over the asylum because his sound is crazy, his vibe is inconceivable, and his appeal boundless. In a little over a year, Lunice had managed to capture the attention of the world, with an eclectic sound and out-of-the ordinary production capability. Lunice is a natural born entertainer who has the drive, sound, and dexterity to make us move. He was able to get a firm grip of the electronic beats scene across Canada and the United States with his live mixing of beats, bass, and splintered electronica. While taking cues from Autechre, Bangladesh, Dilla, and the Ed Banger clique, Lunice managed to craft his own recipe which makes dance floors bump and bass bins thump. This 22 year old producer has put out remixes out on prominent labels such as Mad Decent, Sony Music, Warner Music Group, XL Recordings, Young Turks, Big Dada, Top Billin’ and a recent solo EP entitled STACKER UPPER which was released on the Scottish-Based label LuckyMe. The discography continues to grow by the day. You have to hear it to believe it, and trust, we are strong believers.
ABOUT DUBBEL DUTCH: After relocating to Austin, Texas via New York, DJ / Producer Dubbel Dutch (a.k.a. Marc Glasser) burst onto the scene with a slew of remixes and original tracks guided by legendary Brooklyn/Copenhagen-based Palms Out Sounds blog and label. His sophomore release "Throwback" made serious waves in 2010 recieving praise and plays from Bok Bok, L- Vis 1990, Sinden, Brodinski, Jamie XX and so many more underground dance scene leaders. A self-proclaimed “internet-digger” Dubbel’s digital crates are full of obscure records from around the globe, as well as his own productions, re-edits, and of course, exclusive material from like-minded collaborators. Both his DJ sets and tracks pull inspiration from a panoply of collective global styles including but not limited to UK House and Grime, US Club Music, Dancehall / Soca, South African House, Kuduro, Bubbling and Rap/RnB. Last time Dubbel Dutch was at LDL, the dancefloor was set on fire and we know he is going to bring back that same heat.
SEE YOU THERE!
