Standard is boring. Each of the songs that are featured in this edition of Moombahton Monday will have clear Mommbahton influences, but will also be heavily impacted by a different EDM genre as well. The mixing of genres creates some unexpected combinations that I really hope you’ll enjoy.
“Barrio” by Woogie begins with typical Moombahton percussion, but it is not your typical Moombahton song. 18 seconds in, the baseline starts, followed by a grimy build up to a Big Room House drop. The secondary drop around 1:47 is even better than the last, having more layers and an even darker energy.
The next song this week is “Firin’ My Lasers” by The Brig. This track definitely lies on the boarder between regular Dubstep and Moombahton, but the rhythm of the drop at 2:23 shows where it’s loyalties really lay. Throughout the tack, the energy stays bright and constant (in a good way) regardless of the choice of synths.
“Unstoppable” by Revolvr & Genisis kind of sounds like Foreign Beggars met up with Etc!Etc! and it sounds awesome. The percussion’s beats remain on the Moombah side of things, but the synths, for the most part, do not. The rap over top of everything brings a unique dimension that not a lot of Moombahton songs successfully have.
If those three songs left you yearning for even more, be sure to take a listen to “Bounce” by Eliminate, “Bubblin'” by Fabian Mazur, and Triarchy’s amazing edit of “Fire In Your Echo” by Kaskade Vs. Blasterjaxx. They’re all worth your time, worthy of your ears, and not quite standard Moombahton:
