Moombahton

Moombahton is a fusion genre of house music and reggaeton, created by American DJ and producer Dave Nada in Washington, D. C. in 2008. Nada coined the name as a portmanteau of "Moombah" and reggaeton. Identifying characteristics of moombahton include a thick and spread-out bass line, dramatic builds, a two-step pulse with quick drum fills. Moombahton includes rave music synthesizers and acappella rap samples. Musically, moombahton mixes the rhythmic origins of Dutch house or house music, the slow tempo of reggaeton between 100 and 128 beats per minute, accompanied by percussions from reggaeton. Moombahton was created by Dave Nada in late 2009 while DJing his cousin's high school cut party in Washington, D. C.. He blended the house and club music which he had planned to play with the reggaeton and bachata the guests were listening to by slowing down Afrojack's remix of Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie's song "Moombah!" from 128 BPM to 108 BPM, to create the basis of the genre.«... I tried to slow down my house songs, I put the Afrojack remix of "Moombah" by Silvio Ecomo and DJ Chuckie at 108 BPM, the people went crazy.

I did the same with Sidney Samson's "Riverside", it was a delirium. I understood that I would have to record these editions as soon as possible.» Dave Nada Between late 2009 and early 2010, Nada worked on a five track extended play of moombahton tracks, released in March 2010, with the support of the DJ Ayres and the DJ Tittsworth at T&A Records. Moombahcore is a subgenre of moombahton with dubstep influences incorporating elements of newstyle hardcore and techstep. Moombahcore fused dubstep drums and moombahton tempo, incorporating elements such as wobble bass, FM synths, distorted basslines, complex percussion patterns. Moombahsoul is a subgenre, it combines the elements of soul, deep house and chill with moombahton backed drums and textures. David Heartbreak put together one of the genres first compilations in 2011 entitled'HEARTBREAK presents MOOMBAHSOUL'; the 15 track compilation included tracks by Heartbreak, DJ Theory & More.
