Moombahton Star Munchi Hospitalized In Hawaii; NYC DJs Flock To His Aid
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.
