For almost a year now, it became a laughing stock in the Moombahton Facebook Group the amount of times people were desperate to have this track. It became quite irritating at times that many times I felt like giving some people a good bashin’!
Jwls also found it funny but took it all in his stride but why such a long wait for the release? I always thought it was because the track sampled the infamous but classic Joe Arroyo track “La Noche” and clearance could not be obtained via Disco Fuentes.
Here’s the original sample uploaded by Jwls 11 months ago:
Here’s the brilliant La Noche, one of my fave tracks in fact:
So the final version of the track is released and it seems that the infamous “La Noche” sample is kinda gone 🙁 You bad sports Disco Fuentes!
However, that does not stop it from claiming the title of “The Most Sought After Track In Moombahton History” and it’s only fitting and deserving that it is released on the Moombahton creator’s label Diabluma Sound!
Perhaps the bootleg version should be given away free too at some point in the future?
In the meantime, here’s a free Nadastrom edit of the track that graced Mixmag today:
DIABLUMA SOUND 002
JWLS – “BASHIN’ EP”
RELEASE DATE: JULY 24TH, 2012
2) Bashin’ (Nadastrom’s More Bounce Edit)
THE SECOND RELEASE FROM NADASTROM’S NEW IMPRINT COMES FROM NONE OTHER THAN MOOMBAHTON PRODIGY JWLS!
Moombahton has seen a large amount of the younger generation come in to their own as producers; but none so rapidly as Miamiʼs Julio Mejia, professionally known as JWLS. Fresh off of the Laidback Luke bus tour as one half of GTA (his production outfit with partner Matthew Van Toth), JWLS is, to say the least, a musical juggernaut. His latin driven sound has earned him support from Diplo, Craze and Clockwork to name a few. His recent collaboration with Diplo on his “Express Yourself” EP was the stand out track “Move Around” featuring dancehall legend Elephant Man. His debut release on Diabluma Sound is set make some serious noise.
The title track “Bashinʼ” delivers everything Julio is about… the chopped up vocal sample gives way to rolling latin horns before leading into a massive drop only he can deliver. Make sure to let this one play out because the triplets on the second time around make people go crazy. “Lagrimas” sucks you in with itʼs melodic and hooky vocal before devastating you with itʼs leads… a sure fire winner on the floor. This hotly anticipated release is already considered one of the biggest moombahton records to date and an instant classic amongst these sceneʼs biggest DJ’s.
