Moombahton | Making Movies – Lo Que Quiero (Secret Sauce Remix)

Posted by on January 18, 2014


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.

Moombahton | The Very Best — Yoshua Aikuti (Nadastrom Remix) // Nadastrom “Moombahton Massive” EP

Posted by on May 10, 2012

Nadastrom. My dudes. Moombahton has come an incredibly long way in the past three years, but had Dave Nada not hopped on the decks at that fated house party in 2009 we wouldn’t be talking right now. We love our moombahton here at FNT, so it seems only fitting now to take a moment to check in with the genre’s originators — who have big things in store for us in 2012.

To say that Dave Nada and Will Nordstrom have been busy lately would be an understatement. Their Moombahton Massive brainchild — a wild local dance party that has blown up venues in Miami, Austin, and Chicago — has officially gone international. They just kicked off a North American tour. Their record label, Diabluma Sound, is set to launch on May 22. And on top of all of this, they’re still hard at work. They recently dropped a compilation “Moombahton Massive” EP on Scion A/V in conjunction with some well-worn names (Sabo, Steve Starks, and JWLS), which highlights the genre’s funky, sexy, global roots. The EP is free (!!) and you can preview and download it here. They also just released a feel-good yet positively haunting remix of The Very Best’s “Yoshua Aikuti,” a catchy-as-hell song we suggested could be poised for a global takeover when the video dropped back in April. Nadastrom’s treatment is subtle, chilled out, and a wonderful showcase for Esau Mwamwaya’s soaring vocals. Want to inject some new flavor into your iTunes rotation? This is just the stuff.

Electro, Moombahton | Zedd – Stars Come Out (Dillon Francis Remix)

Posted by on March 19, 2012

To quote Dave Nada, sometimes things just sound way more trill slowed. By now we’ve gotten a number of excellent remixes to Zedd’s already excellent “Stars Come Out,” but I can’t resist what happens when you drop the tempo down to the 110 bpm range. As always, Dillon Francis delivers masterfully in this regard, adding in smooth builds and agile synths that work well with the vocals. Preview it below before cruising to Beatport.


Electro | 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.
