Moombahton, the genre which took over the airwaves of 2012, celebrates its 3rd birthday today. A fusion of dutch-house and reggaeton, moombahton was invented—if not accidentally discovered—by American producer Dave Nada. Turning down Afrojack’s remix of Silvio Ecomo & DJ Chuckie’s “Moombah” from 128BPMs to 108BPMs during a house party in Washington DC, Nada conceived a unique sound that had an instant reaction.
To all you fellow Moombahton heads: it’s time to celebrate. 108 BPM pioneers Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom (better known as Nadastrom) have made their latest EP, El Baile Diabluma, available to download for free. Moombahton is infectious and fun, and people get down whenever it’s played. We were lucky enough to catch Nadastrom’s sets at both HARD Summer and Mad Decent’s LA Block Party, and they throw one hell of a dance party. The new EP contains four original productions and two delicious remixes. Download it at Scion A/V.

For the second edition of Mad Decent’s Blow Your Head, Dave Nada, of Nadastrom fame, presents the fastest growing EDM genre: Moombahton. To be honest, a feature on Moombahton is long overdue here at Dancing Astronaut. Nada himself created the genre a senior skip day party for his cousin a few years back. When Nada arrived for his DJ set, he found a crowd of high school seniors dancing to Reggaeton beats. Not wanting to upset the mood, Nada started off his set by slowing down Afrojack’s remix of Moombah to the BPM of Reggaeton, around 110 BPM. The track sounded so good slowed down, Nada went back to his studio shortly afterwards, had a muck around, and Moomahton was born. Originally a fusion of dutch house with reggaeton beats and BPM, the genre has exploded all over the world and now contains elements of dubstep, electro, and even progressive house. I myself was fortunate enough to catch a Moombahton set from Nadastrom in Miami and it blew me away.
In honor of the quickly increasing popularity of Moombahton, Nada has released this compilation of ten tracks to act as an introduction for new fans to the genre. Here are a few highlights from the release, with a special present at the end.
Diplo & Dillon Francis – Que Que feat. Maluca (Original Mix)
Datsik – Firepower (Munchi Remix)
Dillon Francis – Masta Blasta (Original Mix)
Dillon Francis has quickly become my favorite of all the Moombahton producers. This next track isn’t on the release but Dillon gave away the track for free on his soundcloud and it’s one of my favorite tunes of the year so far.
