DJ Melo, one of the OG Moombahnista’s with his debut EP for Think 2wice records, it’s Star Time.
Great EP, been blasting it for weeks now and there’s enough diversity and range to please people from all ends of the Moombahton spectrum.
My personal fave is Heater and Topless Riddim, the latter you can grab HERE from Mixmag courtesy of Neil Queen-Jones:

Think 2wice drops a nine track bomb from Arizona producer Dj Melo that showcases the full spectrum of what moombahton can represent. Moombahton, a new style of midtempo dance music, has taken the world by storm in the past 18 months and shows no signs of slowing down.
The title track, ‘Star Time’, exemplifies why Dj Melo is considered such an innovator in the moombahton scene. A giant kick drum along with a gliding lead perfectly balances the big room energy of the track without falling victim to any stereotypes associated with the genre. The EP runs the gamut of styles ranging from outright bangers like ‘The Comeback’ to the gangster swag of ‘Heater’, the moody energy of ‘Corrosion’ and the dancehall flavored bounce of ‘Topless Riddim’. No matter what originally drew you to moombahton, this EP will have something for you.
On remix duty we have three Think 2wice favorites from around the world; Sazon Booya (NYC), Boyfriend (Lithuania) and Fellow (Amsterdam). All three have done a stellar job with their versions.
