Dave Nada "Riverside (Moombahton Edit)"
Here at XLR8R, new genre and sub-genre names cross our desks all the time, but rarely do the tunes have the heft to warrant major attention. But when it comes to moombahton, weight is something the music is definitely not lacking. Dave Nada coined the term after playing some pitched-down Dutch house for his bachata- and reggaeton-loving little cousins and their friends—check this FADER interview for the full story—and decided to start making some proper edits for his DJ arsenal. Check his thunderous "Riverside" edit, which slows down the Afrojack remix of the Sidney Samson tune and also mixes in a bit of Bay Area hyphy prodigies The Pack. The entire Moombahton EP is actually available for free download, and if these heaters are any indication, club DJs may no longer have to live and die at 130 bpm. Moombahton can rock the dancefloor at 108.
