Throwback Thursday: Origins of Moombahton
In posts mentioning the new genre Moombahton, I’ve often referred back to Dave Nada the unintentional creator of the movement and how he started the wave of 108 BPM productions. Well thanks to Diplo’s Mad Decent label, a recent number of remixes were commissioned including the original track that began Moombahton: Chuckie & Silvio Ecomo ‘Moombah’ (Afrojack Remix)
Moombah (Dave Nada Remix) – Chuckie & Silvio Ecomo
This literally is the track that started Moombahton, something that is kind of crazy in my opinion. I don’t think there’s ever been a case where you can simply point to one specific song that started a genre. Also included with this release are remixes from Moombahton specialists like JWLS, Sazon Booya, and David Heartbreak to name a few. The edits are incredible ranging from Adele to Michael Jackson to Jay Z & Kanye West you’re sure to find at least one that you like.
