Damn! It’s been almost three years since Dave Nada dropped the first ever moombahton DJ mix on this here blog, and it has been awesome seeing our friend (and his friends) take the sound to so many crazy places ever since. Dave and co are back with the new Moombahton Forever compilation on T&A, featuring new Nadastrom x Gent & Jawns track “Snake Juice” (which shut it DOWN at the Electric Zoo Clubhouse) alongside fresh cuts from our buds GTA, Craze, Tittsworth, Ayres and more. Download it for free here, cop the WAVs on Beatport, and bug out to Craze’s wild DJ megamix below.
Karmaloop TV just posted up Derick G’s footage from our Rap Party in Miami at The Standard pool. This was a special daytime party we threw two days before our Grand Central blowout, and MAN!!!

Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?
RAP PARTY is just what you’d expect from the name: an afternoon of rap jams spun b2b from A-Trak and Craze, Busy P, Mehdi and Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs and Dave Nada, and Sammy Bananas and (Thee) Mike B. It goes down from 3-8pm at The Standard and is free with a donation to the Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. We’ll see you there!
This week’s year-end wrapup edition of Washington City Paper features our friend Dave Nada in a front page story about moombahton, the caliente 110bpm subgenre he coined several months back. Check it out and be sure to download Dave’s Foolcast mix from this past March (as mentioned in the article) and grab his awesome, tempo flipping “boombahton” mix of LA Riots’ “Bombah.”
“The Drop” is the first official original from the Riots, mixing new musical experimentation with years of road-tested club confidence. Endlessly kinky riffs and jacking kickdrums have already made it a festival favorite, and it comes backed by two mindbending remixes from Duke Dumont and a stomping four-on-the-floor take from TJR. B-side “Bombah” is a planet rock party starter, flipped by Deadfish don Mowgli and Nadastrom’s Dave Nada. Yet even with such a dynamic remix lineup it’s all about the original tunes, setting the stage for many more LA Riots firestarters to come!
If you missed them the first time around, be sure to download these past LA Riots Foolcast mixes: Fall 09, Spring 10, Summer 10. Hit the jump for Dust La Rock’s “The Drop” sleeve art, which inspired the promo vid above. Read More
Moombahton is the latest obsession of our pal Dave Nada, who stumbled upon the sound when taking a break from his Nadastrom duties to DJ a cousin’s high-school skip party. Seriously.
This megamix includes a bunch of his own moombahton morphs, a sprinkling of FG fam, and a lot of 108 bpm smiles.
