Prepare for a night of experimental party music! Beat Research explores deep rhythms each week on Tuesday nights from 9:30 pm – 1 am with resident DJs Flack and Wayne & Wax. Special Guest tonight is Munchi!!!. 21 plus. No cover.
Beat Research couldn’t be more excited about hosting the Boston premiere of moombahton wunderkind, Munchi, the 22-year-old Dominican via Rotterdam who has put a stamp on the young genre like no one else. Munchi knows as well as anyone (and better than most) that Dutch house and reggaeton are kindred genres, each a skip and a jump away from dancehall reggae. From that position, Munchi crafted what were arguably the first originals of the genre, tracks built from scratch, imbued with touches of baile funk, cumbia, kuduro, bmore, samba, breakcore and more. Munchi quickly gathered thousands of fans around the web, leading to international tours, remix commissions, and dropping soon, an EP of his own on Mad Decent. Boston’s own Oxycontinental will warm things up for Munchi with a set spanning many of the same influences, and stretching out into many more. NO DRESS CODE NO COVER THIS WILL BE EPIC
