Fresh Fruit: First Monday Minimix w/ SYLO

Published on March 5th, 2012

I love Philly. But did you know that I was born in DC? Raised in Takoma Park, Maryland. It’s a DMV thing all day. And, since I’m actually headed back home today to say wassup to my dog (her name is Fly), I thought I’d hit ya’ll with a mix of the DC-born genre that’s taking the globe by storm – MOOMBAHTON! This genre is the lovechild of Dave Nada, one of the first DJs who showed me that electronic music could be cool (thanks man!). What is moombahton you ask? Seriously? Well, to keep it simple, it’s something like ‘advanced reggaeton.’ We’ve been on this stuff for years now, but today the genre is making bigger waves than ever with new producers popping up every day. Even Skrillex and Diplo have a moombahton song. Of course, with any explosion of a certain style, there’s gonna be a lot of wack stuff. That’s ok, though. I tend to look for the moombahton that’s groovy, or sexy, or at the very least, interesting.

This mix jumps around a few subgenres under the moombahton umbrella, from a classic sound very reminiscent of reggaeton, to the sensual sound of ‘moombahsoul,’ and finally to new sort of sound I’m not sure what to call. Maybe ‘future moombahton.’ Turn it up. Enjoy. Peace.

Track List:

  • Munchi – Pun Ain’t Dead
  • Bucketheads – The Bomb(JoNny Chino Moomahton Make-Over)
  • Jon Kwest – Nipsy’s Jam (What Would I Do)
  • Tactic – I Don’t Want To Be Right
  • Doc Adam – Weight Up
  • Jamie XX – Far Nearer (Nadastrom & Sabo Moombahton Edit)
