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.
Nothing in this world compares to the sight of a beautiful woman dancing to moombahton (except the sight of thousands of a beautiful women dancing to moombahton). Sure, house is great, but girls can get their hips into moombah, and as Shakira so famously proclaimed, hips don’t lie.
Much to our delight, day one of HARD’s two-day festival at Miami Music Week will be a Moombahton Massive. You can buy your tickets for the March 21st show here.
To get us in the mood, Nadastrom and Sabo have teamed up to create an irresistible half-hour mix that spans the best that moombah has to offer. The mix combines Latin beats with dutch house bleeps, electro screeches and big room thumps. If this doesn’t get you in the mood for Miami, nothing will.

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.
