Moombahton: A Slow Starting Relationship Posted by Nate in: Other

I wanted to take the time today to write a few words on a subject I’ve been silent on since it’s emergence last year. I’ve tried to avoid, since I really could care less about it. But the time has come to express my feelings.

My friends over at Stoney Roads wrote up a little post a while ago expressing their distaste for the genre. One of their concerns was how you’d be able to dance to something like Moombahton. I’m not too concerned about that since people manage to dance to just about anything these days. I’m focuing more on their other point. How creativity in the music simply goes out the window when the whole genre is based off slowing a song down to 108bpm.

The fundamental problem I see with Moombahton is that it wasn’t a unique sound that was created over time and slowly evolved like many of the styles in electro house that you see today. Moombahton was created by slowing Afrojack’s remix of the Silvio Ecomo & DJ Chuckie’s Moombah to 108 bpm. For me, the real problem with Moombahton is that you can define it. Moombahton was introduced as a genre in a new age of so many bedroom producers that it overwhelms my inbox every morning with crazy mashups, edits, remixes and everything in between. There are so many people who can simply fire up FL Studio, Reason, Logic, Ableton, Pro Tools, etc and use that established definition of Moombahton to create something that resembles Kuato from Total Recall.

If Moombahton is to survive and stand up as a respectable genre in my eyes, remixes and edits need to become more creative. I’d actually prefer for most of them to stop, but I know that’s not going to happen. Bedroom producers to need step up and start experimenting more and broadening the definition. Getting away from lazy edits and remixes which just add a few simple kick drums.

The good news is this has already somewhat started. Some producers have taken to create their own original Moombahton tracks, which actually sound pretty good. And do you know why they sound good? Because they were made from the beginning to be played at 108bpm. One of the producers leading the original Moombahton front right now is Dillon Francis. His originals thus far have been great and I’ve yet to hear a Moombahton remix from him that didn’t push it to the next level.

Dillon Francis – Que Que Feat. Maluca

Kito & Reija Lee – Broken Hearts (Dillon Francis Remix) by Dillon Francis

A few more producers including Tittsworth and Alvin Risk are also doing great originals.

Alvin Risk & Tittsworth – Pendejas by AlvinRisk

I sort of sound like a broken record saying it over and over again, but I believe it’s important to really hammer the point home. Moombahton needs to expand what it’s known as.

At the end of the day I still don’t think Moombahton should have been classified as a genre. But I also realize it’s not going away anytime soon. I laid out my views, now back to your regularly scheduled electro…
