Moombahton: An Introduction | Tracks + Brodinski Mixtape

Perhaps one of the most exciting developments within the EDM spectrum during the 2010 calendar year was the explosion of dubstep onto the world stage. Well, there’s a new genre on the block that’s about to take over dubstep’s place in 2011. MOOMBAHTON. Check out what the creator of Moombahton, Dave Nada, has to say about this exciting new wave of EDM.

“Moombahton is mid-tempo global bass music for the universe. It’s a sonic marriage of electronic dance music (house, techno, and dubstep) with latin/island music (reggeaton, cumbia, and dancehall) that flows at a pace of about 108 beats per minute. Originally, moombahton started by Dave Nada slowing down tropical and dutch house records and re-edited them to sound like reggaeton’s weird little cousin. Because the tempo nears that of reggaeton, Nada created the neologism “Moombahton” by combining the title of the track “Moombah” by DJ Chuckie & Silva Cuomo and the “ton” ending of the word “reggaeton” and applied it to the new genre. Moombahton continues to grow worldwide as producers and DJ’s push the music in exciting new ways.”

- Dave Nada

Now, moombahton isn’t necessarily new to those with their heads buried deep in the scene. It’s coming HARD right now though, as you may have heard the few minutes in Laidback Luke’s Essential Mix where he dropped some moombahton. We’ve been hesitant to post any because 1) We weren’t sure if the sound would faze out quickly and 2) there wasn’t much material to feature. But now, albeit probably a little bit late, and almost a year since Mr. Nada dropped the first Moombahton EP for free, we’re officially acknowledging it’s arrival.
