Word just got to us that main MOOMBAHTON man and Generation Bass alumni MUNCHI has fallen severly ill while on tour in the USA…
just plucked this of the VILLAGE VOICE:
The Netherlands-based DJ, producer, and “moombahton” guru known as Munchi is a recent obsession in some corners of SOTC — hear lots of examples of his adventurous, omnivorous style here — which makes news of his recent medical trauma all the more disturbing. Per NYC’s own DJ Ayres comes news that Munchi recently “had a seizure caused by an intracerebral hemorrhage” while on tour in Hawaii, subsequently spending nine hours in a coma and 11 days in the hospital. Now Ayres, alongside cohorts Dave Nada and Tittsworth, have started a fundraising drive in Munchi’s honor, aiming to get the poor guy a ticket back to Rotterdam (already done, it looks like), paying for the meds he’s needed so far, and so forth. The widget is below; the “hospital bills” estimate is probably way off, sadly, so do what you can.
it appears the $$$ is coming in fast via the GIVELOOP SET UP FOR THIS – DO WHAT YOU CAN to help this guy out. Seriously talented young man from Rotterdam needs you to help get home and pay the bills. He’s given so much the last year, musically and spiritually, that we can only repay him partly with old, muddy DOUGH
via the giveloop: Munchi had a seizure caused by an intracerebral hemorrhage, with no prior condition. He spent 9 hours in a coma and 11 days in the hospital recovering. He has no medical insurance in the US. His medication is expensive and he needs to get back to Rotterdam. Our goal is to pay for his ticket home, get our Hawaiian friends reimbursed for his meds and eventually pay for his hospital bills.
speedy recovery and best of wishes from the entire GB TEAM!!!!
