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.

Electro | Le Castle Vania, Dillon Francis & Diplo, Fabian | ELECTRO BANGERS

Posted by on March 18, 2011

Atlanta based Dylan Elland, of Le Castle Vania, continuously drops impressive tracks. As he blends intense, grinding disco punk with electronic beats and synth leads, his remixes brilliantly transform original tracks.

Two days ago, Dylan dropped the audio freebie which has been posted below. Dylan chose to remix the two-year-old D.I.M club banger, “Is You,” after re-listening to the track. Dylan not only chose to drop the track because he so strongly believes in releasing creative, free music–but also in preparation for his SXSW performances. Even if you can’t make it to SXSW, Dylan still wants you to rage, wherever you may be, by listening to this banger.

Dillon Francis, of the Mad Decent family, recently released his head-splitting EP “Westside.” As one of the godfathers of Moombahton, Francis absolutely kills it. Dave Nada, Maluca, DJ Ammo, and Munchi are just some of the artists Francis teamed up with on “Westside.” The track posted below, entitled “Que, Que” is Francis’s fire for the EP. With an artist like Diplo, you can’t go wrong…
