Have you ever heard of moombahton before? Yeah, me neither. But two Valley DJs have just released their new album that just might change all that.
Now for all us white people out there that's moom-bah-ton, as in reggaeton, the popular Latin dance music that has swept the world. The idea for moombahton was essentially created in the fall of 2009 when DJ Dave Nada slowed down a Dutch-house track, "Moobah" to the tempo near most reggaeton tracks. What resulted was a style that hadn't quite yet been heard before. By the spring of 2010 Nada released his Moombahton EP and it began spreading like wildfire throughout the internet.
Some of the earliest DJs to pick up on this new sound were the Valley's own Melo and Pickster One. The two collaborated on a moombahton track and knew they had hit upon something special in working with each other. Both DJs have released multiple solo albums before this, but with Arizonaton, they have come together to shake the ears (and butts) of audiences worldwide.
The seven tracks on Arizonaton range in differing moombahton styles. Moombahall, moombahardcore and moombasoul are all represented as well as a remix of Valley favorite's Dry River Yacht Club's song, "Sweaty Sax." They may have just invented moombahindie.
So if you like your bass low, repeating-a cappella-harmonic vocals and extended instrumental build-ups all placed over a Latin/percussive feel, Arizonaton is for you. Catch Pickster One and Melo DJ all across the Valley on multiple nights a week.
