The Barrioteca Files: Notch

Former member of Washington D.C.’s Born Jamericans, as well as one of Reggaeton’s early cross-over stars, Notch has been bridging the boundaries between dancehall and reggaeton for years. He is fluent in Spanish, English, and Patois, a result of both his parentage and experience growing up between Connecticut, Washington D.C., and Bermuda. He brings his Jamaican and Latino roots together with his classic sonero/singjay style, and we can’t help but sing along whenever we drop his big hits like Que te pica, Ay Que Bueno, and Nuttin No Go So.


He’ll be performing live at the Que Bajo Barrioteca Tropical May 9th at Verboten in Brooklyn. Get your tickets here:
