Lean House!! WTF is it???
Well, I’m not sure how it started but I could guess that it might have started as a bit of a piss-take/send up on the Moombahton idea of screwing House down to 108 BPM but it certainly does not sound like a piss-take/send up.
Lean House does in fact screw down, & sometimes chops up, House at 108 bpms. What is certain though, is that it might not have existed were it not for DJ Screw. It “must” also have been inspired by Moombahton’s recent ascendancy.
Maybe, Lean House would be the perfect warm up accompaniment to a main Moombahton set. Certainly one way to avoid having to play Moombahton all night!
IN FACT, imho,if you fuse Lean House with Moombahton, you get our latest Moombah release by SaBBo:
You can grab an exclusive Lean House edit each week from their Soundcloud page!
In the meantime, here’s a mixtape by one of its French pioneers!
