Blow Your Head #5: Dave Nada on creating moombahton

00:00 Nov/30/1999

What's this new sound, they asked? How come I want to get down to it like a drunken monkey on a beach in Thailand? Well, it's obvious that the 108 BPM, bass and latin-infused style of music is the perfect inspiration for this kind of behavior. Dave Nada's the one credited for creating the sound in 2010 (although Munchi, and Diplo have been noted playing similar sounds in 2009). The story goes that he was trying to find a transition between house an reggeaton while playing a set at a house party. The notorious track he slowed down from 128 BPM to 108 BPM was Afrojack's remix of Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie's "Moombah". But don't take my word for it, here's Dave Nada with some cool illustrations telling the story!
