So we’re gonna be trawling through our archives to find what we consider to be some of our classic posts, which should highlight just how influential we might have been in the past 4 years!!
It was Munchi’s birthday over the weekend and so a Happy Belated Birthday from all of us at Team GB 🙂
The following extract is is taken from The Moombahtonista Post on Munchi, which we did more recently and is yet another classic post but we’ll revisit that one later.
This Classic Post today is about the one we did on 14 July 2010 but I felt that the stuff I said on The Munchi Moombahtonisa is totally relevant for this post as an intro:
On July 14th 2010, all HELL broke loose.
I heard “FIREPOWER”!
I was blogging Datsik a lot in those days and also as far back as in 2009, when not many really knew who Datsik was. I had the pleasure of opening for Datsik in my home city in Birmingham in March 2010. So were were blogging about him furiously. I had no idea Munchi was also listening to Datsik. I knew he was into Burial and Loefah and those dudes but I had no idea he was into the more aggressive stuff. So it was a huge surprise when I heard his Datsik edit of “Firepower”.
Man it BLEW MY MIND!!!
I was about the 8th person to hear it on his soundcloud and I just said:
“fuuuuuuuuuuckkkkkk!……..NEXT LEVEL SHIIT!…The apprentice becomes a MASTER!”
I immediately knew then something big & new had been borne. It was like NOTHING I had ever heard before and the aggressiveness of it also surprised me, cause we weren’t used to this side of Munchi.
So I thought I got to do a blog of this track and sensationalize so that the world hears it, cause the world needs to hear it!!!!
So what better way to draw attention to it than to say, “Say Hello 2 The Next Diplo”!
The “Firepower” track was for “me”, the moment when I saw Genius in Munchi and I then became one of his staunchest supporters. Up until that moment, the kid was showing a lot of PROMISE but “Firepower” changed all of that and showed us the work of a GENIUS! He had started on his journey to becoming a bona fide LEGEND.
“Firepower” had acted as a major catalyst for the Moombahton movement. When I heard the track I could see back then the vision Munchi had created for the future of this Moombahton movement. He had given it mouth 2 mouth resuscitation and had breathed new life into it.
All the Dubstep & Drumstep heads who were visiting our blog started to get into it and we started seeing a flow of Moombahcore edits. Without “Firepower”, I doubt we’d be as far advanced as we are with the movement today. It opened up the doors to a whole new world for a broad range of people.
Generation Bass Classic Post – 14 July 2010:
You already know about our young prodigy, 17 year old Munchi. We were one of the first blogs to cover him after he came to us with a vault full of gems.
I am now convinced after hearing his latest track/re-fix/mash up, whateva you wanna call it, that he will be the next Super Shit Hottt Producer, the next Diplo!
In fact I would go as far as to say that I think, in time, he might even be better than Diplo (sorry Diplo, we really love you mate but our Munchi’s a little bit special)!
Listen to this killa and I dare you to tell me that I’m far off the mark or just plain stupid and wrong ( somebody, quite influential, well let’s say a big fish in a very small pond, already told me that..ahahha but do I give a f***, No I f****** don’t lmao..boohoo to him) !
