moombaht

Who said moombahton is dead?  Well, if you’ve gotten caught up in the trap epidemic, you might have suffered from temporary amnesia in the recent months, as the evolution of this new genre taking over caused moombahton to take a quick “time out”.  But alas, back stronger than ever is my favorite type of music; the kind that can mix influences and elements from worldly slower beats, a hybrid “toddler” at three years of technical age called Moombahton.  T&A Records (headed by Tittsworth & DJ Ayres) will release this compilation in just a short eight days officially, and since it has pretty much all of the innovators of the moombah scene featured, I’ll let Dave Nada explain this in his own words (and grab this for free while you can below!)…

“People always ask me, ‘So how does it feel to have invented a genre?”’and I usually tell them ‘Well, it feels good to be a part of something’.  Moombahton may have started off with me making DJ edits of slowed down house music to sound like a weird version of reggaeton, but it took a worldwide collective to turn it into a full fledged movement. It’s been a little over 3 years since moombahton’s inception and I can’t even begin to describe how big the sound has grown and how far it has travelled. Moombahton has infiltrated damn near every music scene across the globe, absorbing their backgrounds and creating a vibe of it’s own. It still has the dembow riddim as it’s backbone and remains at a mid-tempo range of about 108 beats per minute. But moombahton music has grown far beyond that, and not just in sound. Over the years I’ve been able to watch moombahton bridge different worlds, transcending cultural boundaries, all in the name of the groove. Producers, DJs and music lovers alike have pushed the sound in their own way, and I’ve had the privilege of helping steer the moombah-ship in a fun & interesting direction. With the help of the genre’s innovators, T&A Records brings you Moombahton Forever. This compilation is a reflection of where the sound is today and how far it has come. I’m excited to see where moombahton will take us next!” – D.N.
