Global dembow seems to be a recurring theme in NYC producer ShiShi’s work. A cursory scan of ShiShi’s Soundcloud page shows the “Global Dembow” tag occurring often alongside other internationally-minded fusion genres (“Bollywood House,” “Eastern Trap”). ShiShi’s work itself — joining, melding, mashing musical styles — is fascinating and exciting.

“Chop Shop” from NYC’s diNMachine is a bouncy, trap-y blur of genres that coalesces into an inventive and accessible burst of noise-pop. Tones shifts, rhythms start and stop, new sounds come out of left field — and somehow it all coheres. The sounds are disparate but always feel intentional.

It’s a testament to diNMachine composer Michael J. Schumacher’s skill ...
