An Introduction to Moobahton: Dillon Francis, Munchi, Diplo

Posted by on May 28, 2011

Since I am sure most of you are off raging somewhere for Memorial Day weekend, and only the die hards are making it onto the site, I figure this was the perfect time to sneak in a post to expand your musical horizons. As electronic music continues to grow and expand, new sub-genres are being invented almost daily. One of the more interesting ones that has found its way to my ears is Moombahton. According to the all mighty knowledge source wikipedia:

Moombahton was created by American dj/producer Dave Nada at a high school homecoming “skipping party” for his younger cousin in Washington, D.C., in the fall of 2009.The specific event that stimulated NADA’s development of the Moombahton genre was his slowing the Afrojack remix of the Silvio Ecomo & DJ Chuckie song “Moombah” to 108 beats per minute. Because that tempo nears that of the reggaeton, Nada created the neologism “Moombahton” by combining the title of the track “Moombah” and the “ton” ending of the word “reggaeton” and applied it to his new genre.

Here’s a preview of some of the most popular track in this scene. Hit the comments with your opinions.
