Insane dembow beats, cumbia, funk carioca or neoperreo – Chocolate Remix, the ‘Grande Dame’ of lesbian reggaeton, combines musical traditions from all over South America into a mix that just forces you to move. If you don’t sweat to this, you’re going to get burnt. So: unbuckle your seatbelts and go crazy.
Chocolate Remix plays around with sexual stereotypes and the sexual content that defines Reggaeton. Sexy, but never sexist, she makes a musical statement for sexual diversity. In 2017 the BBC named Chocolate Remix one of the most 100 inspiring and innovative women in the world and her song ‘ni una menos’ has become an anthem of the women’s movement in Argentina and beyond.
Chocolate Remix is the reggaeton and urban music solo project of producer, rapper, singer and DJ Romina Bernardo. It was founded in 2013 with the purpose of claiming a right to a historically sexist music genre from a queer and feminist perspective. The project takes advantage of the strong sexual content of this style and recreates it by addressing taboo subjects such as female pleasure and sexuality. It also denounces the problems the LGBTTIQ community frequently faces, such as discrimination, censorship and violence. With eloquent and sharp lyrics full of of satire and humor, the rapper dives into different styles of reggaeton and mixes it with cumbia, funk carioca, dembow, reggae, electronic music and other genres to convey a message of strong political and social content – music that invites us to dance and think.
