A genre that’s now sort-of always been there has been taken on by two up-and-comers, Father of Chrome and Macrohard. These two do not take the name Moombah lightly – there latest truly puts a new-age twist on moombah drops and melodies most people are familiar with. However you dissect it, “Somer Salt” make it easy to get straight with that 108.

Kannibalen Records radio head Lektrique teamed up with the rapper Panther Matumona on quite an impressive bass single called “Spark.” Much like other Kannibalen tracks, this one fuses classical elements with a modern heavy twist. “Spark” is a track that doesn’t fit itself into one genre specifically, but it lies at the midtempo range making it most closely align with moombahcore. Lektrique shows off his intense sound design skills yet again, setting himself apart from a lot of cats in the game. It’s just a matter of time before this guy makes it big like his fellow KanniFam members like Snails, Apashe and Black Tiger Sex Machine.
Purchase on iTunes: Lektrique – Spark feat. Panther

Don’t get me wrong – I’ve been digging a lot of the more popular genre choices by artists today. With that in mind though, there are a lot of styles I really wish would make a comeback – especially Moombahton. Hot out of the studio with a remix of Making Movies’ “Lo Que Quiero,” the homies over at Secret Sauce have begun their own quest in raising the Dave Nada-inspired sound from the dead; and they seem to have done a pretty damn good job, knocking out a chilled track with clean reggaeton vibes. Shout out to our friends at Do Androids Dance for snagging the exclusive on this one – looks like we missed out.

Madness – pure madness. I first heard this little piece of magic in The M Machine’s mix for OWSLA After Dark (My favourite mix of the year). It’s such a creative musical venture that it makes my head spin. Suspense is built well with an entertaining intro and build that introduces the beat. The power of the beat at 1:45 is Godzilla-sized. With a moombahish pattern and encompassing bass, it really takes me over. Then, out of no where, the song picks up into a wicked drum and bass shuffle.
The whole song is amazing in many ways, but as a friend pointed out to me, the most impressive illusion created here is that of depth. The sounds compliment each other perfectly, but it feels as though they do so from a distance. And width – I’m not sure that I’ve ever heard sound so wide. Huge, low bass and long, wide sounds add to the illusion. Without adding an overwhelming amount of sounds, these legendary artists have created a sound that is extremely full. This song is way entertaining and displays some next level engineering. Bravo guys, this is brilliant stuff.
