MIXTAPE: Moctezuma Mix
Born in Germany to Mexican parents, Daferwa, a.k.a. Daniel Fernando Whal, dedicated his latest mixtape to celebrating both his heritage and versatility.
Moctezuma Mix starts with classic cumbias in remixed versions and from there it takes us in multiple directions, from Brazilian baile funk to dubstep to nondescript EDM and plenty more, and once your attention starts waning, it brings it back to cumbia.
Daniel lives in Cologne, where he hosts the Mash It Up! party series, which has featured all of the international luminaries of global bass (Toy Selectah, Uproot Andy, and Munchi). Good job bringing some tropical heat to the cold-ass Rhine.
