Read about the tracks selected –  Part 1 | Part 2

So I stumbled upon a great post the other day on written by Chris & Marcus from Postcultural and TGRIonline that gave both a great overview of the genre’s origins and evolution, and also an amazing compilation of tracks (or Moombootleg) to give you a good understanding of the ever changing genre.

Here’s a quick exert from the post:

Read the Original Post

Even though it seems ubiquitous, devotees of moombahton must remember that their cherished genre is still a mystery to the music world at large. For those of us who have been following the ascendant sound, it’s easy to forget that most people can’t answer the question, “what is moombahton?”

Describing it as a Dutch house and reggaeton hybrid certainly doesn’t do the trick – that’s just jargon. You could try retelling the genre’s “origin story,” as it were, with Dave Nada slowing down a record into something more palatable for his cousin’s skip party, but that’s a setting, not a sound. Play the Nada-compiled Blow Your Head 2, and you get a specific vision of moombahton, albeit through Mad Decent’s rose-colored glasses. None of these give you a complete picture of a genre that has undergone so much in just over a year.

For those reasons and more, I’ve compiled The Moombootleg: 19 tracks over 80 minutes that attempts to present the story of moombahton for beginners. Moombahnistas might get a bit of nostalgia from these tracks, as I did when assembling it, but the real audience is your co-worker, your siblings, or even your parents, so they can finally understand moombahton. You can even fit it on a CD (remember those?) and let it blow the car speakers out as you educate your neighborhood.

Moombahton has caused such a stir in the EDM scene with a lot of producers claiming it’s ‘too easy to make’ so this somehow devalues the sound. Personally moombahton can do no wrong in my eyes. Upon initial listening it can be quite hard to take in, but imagine that you’re hearing these tracks amongst a crowd of crazy partiers and you can see how moombahton GOES OFF in clubs. This very nature of the genre is exactly  why DJ’s are quickly changing their stance and we’ve seen the quick rise of a moombahton era. So here’s 4 of my favourite tracks from the moombootleg featuring A-mac, MunchiAlvin Risk and Tittsworth .
