Isabelia Herrera and Joel Moya talk trap en Español and the high notes of this year’s Latinx music landscape.

We survey the landscape of Latin music and beyond in 2018, with two of the minds behind Remezcla, a grassroots online publication that has quickly become the go-to for the best of Latin culture across music, film, food, art, sports and more (with a focus on where the underground meets the mainstream). Vivian is joined by Remezcla music editor Isabelia Herrera, a Chicago-born quisqueyana who hosts the Muevete Jevi parties and was recently voted one of Forbes‘ 30 Under 30. Also joining is Joel Moya, Remezcla’s bubblegum-and-weird-music-obsessed social media don, to talk about this big year in Latinx sounds.
