Saudade Vem Correndo (Doc Adam Bootleg)

unnamed

For those who don’t know Bossa Nova is something that is widely associated with Brazil and that has been widely lauded as one of their chief musical exports from the 50’s and 60’s. Except that many of those in Brazil didn’t actually know about this predominantly Middle Class music but somehow it became representative of Brazilian music by the rest of the world throughout the 50’s and 60’s and even up to modern times.

Bossa Nova was popularized in the USA by American saxophonist Stan Getz who took on some brilliant music composed by Brazilian legends like Luis Bonfa and one of my faves, Antonio Carlos Jobim and created some albsolute magic with them. Indeed, one of my all time fave albums is one called “Getz & Gilberto” that came out in the 60’s on Verve and it is the epitome and defintion of Bossa Nova for me.

So it’s really cool hearing this music filtering down to producers like Doc Adam who has always had a wide repertoire of musical influences and here’s what he says:

I think I bruised my ribs. Accordingly, I spent the day stationary and made this joint. Bootleg or remix or whatever you want to call it of the Stan Getz & Luis Bonfa classic that you’ll know from Dilla’s flip for the Pharcyde if nowhere else. More 112 BPM jams for your summer sets.

PRINCE : POP LIFE [DOC ADAM] EDIT

PrinceAndTheRevolution

Feeling pretty depressed after trying to grapple with the realization that that GENIUS, the greatest ever Prince this world has ever known, has just left my home city Birmingham after I caught him live here twice in the past 2 weeks, I was just about to top myself until I came across this edit on Soundcloud.

Our boy Doc Adam, one of the OG (sadly often over-looked & most underrated) Moombahtonista’s edited one of his tracks from his brilliant “Around the world in a Day” album, an often overlooked and most underrated work of art from Prince’s back catalogue with The Revolution.  Prince actually played this track live at the first of his Birmingham gigs last week and man it was glorious!

Doc prescribed the right tonic and this cheered me up no end & prevented me from topping myself.

Check it out:

He also did this awesome edit of that classic Specials Ska track and the strange thing is that they also have a Midlands connection as they hail from Coventry which is like 30 minutes from where I presently live and also where I use to live for a short period in the last decade:

KING – Crew Anthem (Michele Wylen's ANIMAL Edit) – Exclusive!

KING - Crew Anthem (Michele Wylen's ANIMAL Edit)

Michele Wylen is a Filipina-American vocalist, writer, and producer based in Los Angeles who was introduced to me by one of Moombahton’s favourite son’s Doc Adam.

Michele recently sent me an edit of this present track that is available for download exclusively to Generation Bass and it kinda blew my mind. Yeah, massive shades of M.I.A. but that ain’t no bad thing and I think Michele does add her own individual vybz to the track. It’s def a killa and I’d say this is an artist to watch out for. She is already on collab duties with some stellar names.

Grab this Bass Bomb cause it’s pure fyah and as I said keep your eyes peeled on this artist cause she is gonna be making massive moves:

Here’s some other stuff that she’s done too to demonstrate more of her range:

You should know the score by now:

-An Intro
-Brief Q & A with our Moombahtonista
-Biography
-Discography
-The almighty EXCLUSIVE!

INTRO:

Not as consistent in putting out the Moombahton as he use to be or as much as others currently do in the scene but imho he did enough quality stuff in the early days and also continues to do so in his latter days, to warrant his inclusion in my list.

Lets not forget he did release an awesome free EP not so long ago in September of last year, “La Reconquista”, which left a lasting impression on many.

So it’s more a question of “quality” over “quantity” and as far as I am concerned & he is a deserved Moombahton Master!

Plus he was also on the original mutha’ of all Moombahton compilations, “The Summer of Moombahton” put together by Munchi back in July 2010.

So his presence in this scene is of some historical importance but besides that, I really dig his version of Moombahton. I feel it’s dance-floor friendly and more accessible to the commercial masses than some other stuff and it’s always funky & groovy.  That’s understandable given that he normally dj’s in Top 40 clubs to pay his bills and therefore has to find a good balance between something nu & underground and something that crosses over to mainstream crowds.

So he holds his own in the scene with his own take on the genre and in true Moombahtonista style!

This edit of “Calypso” was the first track that did it for me:

And this is the track that featured on Munchi’s and the first ever Moombahton Compilation, The Summer of Moombahton:

He was also one of the first to do 80’s MoombahPoP edits:

Not only 80’s pop edits but Cumbiaton too:

MoombaHop too with his first track above and also this:

Moombahluv too:

And here’s that fabulous La Reconquista EP again:

So all in all, his influence and contribution has been pretty immense!

Q&A:

What was the first Moombah track you heard and how did it make you feel?

I couldn’t say which track I listened to first, but it was unquestionably something off of the Dave Nada Moombah EP. I didn’t really know what to make of it at first. My initial thoughts were a mixture of, “Awesome, I have a huge gap between 105 and a 115 BPM in my DJ sets, this will fill that a bit,” and, “These are just slowed down records, right?,” and “Didn’t Toy Selectah already do this?” (I was obsessed with his remix of Nadie Como Tu ever since it came out, as I was a long time fan of Reggaeton). All of those thoughts dropped by the wayside when I decided to drop the edit of Riverside off of that EP the very next day at one of my bigger open format residences. I think I sandwiched it between Da Funk and Pass That Dutch – the crowd went nuts. And from then I was hooked. I have always been a fan of dance music in the 106 to 115 BPM range, I feel like it’s a very ‘natural’ pace for people to dance to and it has been largely ignored in EDM with the exception of certain varieties of Disco in the last few years. I have also always been a huge fan of Latin, Caribbean, and West African rhythms – so the fusion seemed perfect to me.

What was the first Moombah track you made & when did you make it?

That would be my edit of Drop The Lime’s Sex Sax on top of which I threw the acapella from Tried by 12 by East Flatbush Project. I wanted to find a way to start introducing the Moombahton tracks I was feeling into my sets more, but it was a constant struggle as they were too big, too hard-hitting for me to play early in the night, but too off the radar to get over during peak hour – as I’m primarily a hip-hop DJ playing at somewhat Top 40 inclined clubs for the most part. So I decided to make a track with some rap vocals on them to give people something to latch onto. It sort of worked. But I posted the track on my Soundcoud page and on the Hollerboard back in (I think) June of 2010 and kids went apeshit for it. I remember seeing a write up on Marcus Dowling’s TGRI about how Dave Nada had a saxophone player come in and play along with the track at one of the OG Moombahton Mondays in D.C., which totally blew my mind – considering I made that track in about 15 minutes on a total whim. Given the success, I started churning out more tracks for the rest of the summer, getting more and more intricate and trying to depart from doing straight up edits.

How do you see the future for the Moombahton scene.

I don’t know, honestly. I assure you that I’m not trying to be a hater when I say this, but I personally am not a fan of how loud, wonky, dissonant and chaotic the sound has gotten in large part. I feel like a lot of the elements of Dubstep that steered me away from much of that genre have infiltrated the production style of a pretty big portion of the Moombahton I’m hearing these days. I respect the hell out of the people making that stuff well and playing it well, it just isn’t really my sound. Under the right circumstances, I will totally rock that shit on the decks – but you’re unlikely to find me making it. That being said, there are still plenty of people that are inclined towards the more Latin, the more rhythmic, the more sexy side of the genre that always allured me. Everyone working within the soul side of things is in the line that I am still really feeling and that is largely inspiring all of my new work. I also love hearing tracks pulling more from the Latin, Caribbean, and West African rhythms and vibes that I see having undergirded the genre from its inception.

Moreoever, I have been hyped to hear people experimenting with the more complex and intricate rhythms and syncopated tonal patterns that are present in deep house and minimal techno. I don’t enjoy electronic music that makes me feel like I’m being hit with a blunt instrument, by and large. I know a lot of people do. To that end – and given everything that I have said – I think that Moombahton can demonstrate its validity by splitting up into different worlds where everyone finds the aspects of the genre that they enjoy – just as happened with House and Techno and Drum N Bass and Dubstep and everything else. Accordingly, my capacity to hate may actually be a mark of the growth of the genre and a benchmark of the fact that it is really coming into its own.

BIO:

In the contemporary era of DJing in which many selectors neglect the fundamentals of the craft, Doc Adam strives to hold fast to basic elements of the art: technical skill, quality selection, and the ability to rock any party which confronts him.  Holding a Ph.D. in philosophy, Doc Adam is the thinking man’s DJ – but this doesn’t hamper his ability to throw himself full-swing into the center of a party.  The skill set which he possesses today is something developed over the course of a decade-plus behind the turntables during which he has refused to let his abilities or his musical knowledge stagnate.

Doc Adam cut his teeth in the turntablist and party scene in the late ’90s in Detroit and Ann Arbor, MI where he grew accustomed to rocking crowds and DJ battles alike, flipping back and forth between hip hop, downtempo, ghettotech, and minimal techno.  Having gained the utmost respect for the craft of DJing and the power of nearly all genres of dance music as a member of Ann Arbor’s Unfadeable Crew, Doc Adam persisted throughout his years spent living between Germany and Oregon, honing his skills in various capacities and growing accustomed to rocking to anyone who is thrown in front of him playing any conceivable genre of music – he prides himself on his encyclopedic knowledge of music and his ability to both read and push the dancefloor.

In the past few years Doc Adam has performed everywhere from Düsseldorf to Detroit, Tucson to Minneapolis, Philadelphia to Honolulu and beyond.  He can be found rocking parties multiple nights every week in Portland, usually with his fellow members of the Ante Up crew, Ronin Roc and DJ Nature.  Currently a member of the Wolfpack DJs with DJ Excel, DJ Evil One, DJ Impulse, Rick Rude, & DJ-R, he has played with DJs and performers ranging from The Pack to Parliament Funkadelic, Tony Touch to Sammy Bananas, Spoek Mathambo to Scottie B and more of the top-tier DJs in the world than can be listed here.  Doc Adam is also one of the premier producers of Moombahton – his work has been featured on blogs including Mad Decent, Generation Bass, Hat+Hoodie, Global Ghetto and Tropical Bass.  He is the in-house engineer for FRESHselects.net working with artists including Onra, Waajeed, Mayer Hawthorne, Invincible, Blu, and Buff One.  He is also member of the Crossfaded Bacon family of DJs and producers and has worked for corporate sponsors including Red Bull, Nike, Adidas, Scion, Macy’s, and VTech.

Doc Adam’s resume and history in the game speaks for itself, but he refuses to rest content.  Keep your eyes and ears open, as Doc Adam is only getting better with time.

Symarip – Skinhead Moonstomp (Doc Adam Edit)

The Exclusive:

For his exclusive, Doc Adam has once again done something that few have covered already, he goes back to the 60’s with an edit of a track by an infamous UK ska/reggae band.  This was the skinheads movement before they were sadly tainted by the racism of the movement in the late 70’s in the UK!

This is a peak time crowd howler, you can just imagine everybody pogoing to this!!!

Brilliant!!

WIKI:

Symarip (also known at various stages of their career as The BeesThe PyramidsSeven Letters and Zubaba) were a ska and reggae band from the United Kingdom, originating in the late 1960s, when Frank Pitter and Michael Thomas founded the band as The Bees. The band’s name was originally spelled Simaryp, which is an approximate reversal of the word ‘pyramids’.[1] Consisting of members of West Indian descent, Symarip is widely marked as one of the first skinhead reggae bands, being one of the first to target skinheads as an audience. Their hits included “Skinhead Girl”, “Skinhead Jamboree” and “Skinhead Moonstomp”, the latter of which was based on the Derrick Morgan song, “Moon Hop”.

Symarip – Skinhead Moonstomp (Doc Adam Edit) 

Moombah-Thong Invasion!


Starting to get a massive flood of music with Moombahton becoming an even more in demand genre than it was in 2011. With that said it is starting to get hard finding the quality amongst the quantity. However I have found a few worth sharing!

 

I can say with confidence Rot10 is the hardest working label in Moombahton, an amazing arsenal of artists and having the time to bring in addition up & coming producers for a once in a lifetime oppurtunity. Personally if I were given this massive chance I would freak the fuck out. But BigMakk & D-V3KZ haven’t shown any signs of anxiety when listening to these next level tracks which have set the bar fucking high for 2012 and new producers

 


 

Doc Adam being one of the producers to be part of the game since the start, racking up a massive collection of banging tracks for any Moombah set. Hopefully we get to see more of Doc Adam this year!

 

Loving this tech house styled tune done by new blood Yander D. Moombahton definitely needs a bit more diversity at the moment with everyone trying to make the new dutch or core banger

 

Will Bailey has always been a massive fan of mine, not only with his Moombahton but his early Dutch was also a missile inflicted on dancefloors in pretty much every set of mine . As well as this hot banger, Will Bailey has a release alongside Valentino Khan out early February on Mad Decent. Of course I am speaking of the highly anticipated Rukus EP

 

Another massive preview worth checking out, Bro Safari is probably one the producers that will be on top of his game this year, actually I would put money on him being one of the most stand out producers this year. Especially with tracks like this alongside LeDoom

Generation Bass Presents MoombahLuV Volume 1 – UPDATED DOWNLOAD LINK!!

NB: We had a mastering glitch issue with track 13, Guitarra Band – Ya Ghali (Mendez Edit) and so our heartiest apologies go to Mendez, who is DA MAN!!

That mastering glitch has now been resolved and so the new updated link is presented below.

If you downloaded the compilation from the previous link please delete track 13 and use the new track 13 from this link or by downloading direct from Mendez’s soundcloud page as per below.

Make MoombahLuV Not War <3

I wanted to put this compilation together for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons was to showcase some of the subtler sounds of Moombahton, thereby reinforcing its diversity.

I also wanted to show that it’s a genre of music, not just for the clubs, but also for listening to at home or in the car, when you’re feeling down, in luv or heartbroken and in the mood for romance.

With the concept of “Luv” in mind, I wanted to ensure that it remained cheese-free and wanted to keep it away from the satin sheets ideology! So this compilation is more about the “angst” & “matters of the heart” rather than the physicality of “luurve-making”.

Luv is what keeps us going, it’s what makes the world go around, as clichéd as that might sound, but I believe it to be true. Well, that’s just the way I see the world!

ONE LUV!

Thanks 2 everybody who participated in this project!

& Thank YOU for listening.

FOREWORD & TRACK SYNOPSIS

The foreword and track synopsis is by a man who I admire highly, Neil Queen Jones, one of the top Moombahton journalists in this scene.

Over to Neil:

Generation bass presents Moombahluv Volume One

You should never ask what Moombahton is, it’ll only be something new tomorrow. Moombahton is more than just a global bass genre, it’s a wide-eyed, infectious field project in EDM mechanics that relishes discovery. Dave Nada’s creation bears the bruises that come from repeatedly butting up against any limitation it comes up against: the tough bass rumble of moombahcore galvanised it, then moombahsoul proved that something deeper lurked beneath the playful exterior – and now Moombahluv Volume One shows what this thing is capable of – over 17 track, Moombahluv points the way forward.

1. Home – Phi Unit

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes’ hypnotic, lilting anthem gets taken from the campfire to last-track-of-the-night, sun-rising status with this judicious workout. This is how uplifting needs to be done.

2. None Of Dem (Th0r remix) – Royksopp & Robyn

One of Moombahton’s strength is that it doesn’t seek to reinvent the wheel, it just happens to own a new set of tyres. Th0r’s exquisite repurposing of this slice of Scandinavian class pushes it jet-heeled towards the 108bpm dancefloor, without compromising the original’s potency.

3. Mouthful Of Diamonds (DJ 4Head edit) – Phantogram

Phantogram – Mouthful Of Diamonds (DJ 4HEAD! Moombahluv edit) on MoombahLuv Vol.1!!! by DJ 4Head!

When Dave Nada pitched down Dutch house, who knew it would’ve ended up here? Wistfully indie female vocals and guitar riffs are the latest components to be assimilated by the global bass hybrid –proving once again that Moombahton is a sound that confounds expectation.

4. Bob James – El Nomada

Bob james moombahsoul by El Nomada

The breaks legend gets a serious mid-tempo global retread from El Nomada. This one’s perfect for kicking back and savouring the good life; a gentle bossanova is tweaked to form the distinctive Moombahton beat, flute lazily marks time and the percussion irons out any rough edges. Wonderful.

5. Everything She Wants (Thomas Blondet edit) – Wham!

WHAM! Everything She Wants (Thomas Blondet’s MoombahSoul Remix) by Thomas Blondet

This could so easily have gone badly wrong, yet now seems so logically right. At the hands of the glacially cool Blondet, George Michael’s finest moment gets the perfect Moombahton rub-down, retooled and ready for a liberated, hipster-allergic dancefloor. Effortlessly suave.

NB: This was previously released on Sabo’s sol selectas massive ep 3.

6. Another Girl (Kan Takahiko edit)– Jacques Greene

Jacques Greene – Another Girl (Moombahton Edit) by kantakahiko

Pure tranquil bliss. Japanese producer Takahiko gives the highly rated Montreal producer Greene, a serious make over here with a sumptuous edit, one that shows that Moombahton is now comfortable in its skin. Stripped of excess, Another Girl allows the dembow to work in perfect unison with the music, building into a balaeric wonder.

7. 93 Til’ Moombah – Cabo Blanco

93 Til’ Moombah by Cabo Blanco

Moving quickly to shoot down the notion that a woman’s role in Moombahton necessitates a bikini, this dreamy serving of moombahsoul interlaces the beautiful female vocal with the wide-open expanse of the production to heavenly effect.

8. Sliding Scale – Doc Adam

Doc reins in his trademark jackhammer beats, this time tooling up with lavish strings and Q-Tip samples, yet his tight, gristle-free production style remains uncompromised. Sliding Scale proves that Doc Adam is not only of the OGs who commands respect, but one who’ll form part of Moombahton’s future, too.

9. Suave – Freaky Phillip

The tropical beats are in full working order here, as Freaky Phillip reps the Dominican Republic, stripping Moombahton down to its constituents; the dembow crunch, the Dirty Dutch riffs, the euphoric lifts – and sends them floating into deep space.

10. A Change – Elonious

Elonious-a change-Moombah VIP-MOOMBAHLUV VOL 1-FREE ALBUM DL by Elonious

Lasers and social revolution combine to devastating effect in this effort from Generation Bass’ own Elonious. Scathing Moombahcore hooks vie with old-school electro jabs in a battle for supremacy – but the listener is the winner, irrespective of the outcome.

11. Amor De Angeles – Arehouse

Amor De Angeles (MoombahLuV) ft On Generation Bass Presents: MoombahLuV Vol 1 by AreHouse

Monica getting a reverse screw may sound like an unfortunate turn of events, but in reality it’s Arehouse effortlessly proving that pitching up to 108bpm need not mean sacrificing any of the grace, soul or subtlety – in fact, this R&B number sounds as slick as ever.

12. What Have You Done – DJ Dice

This upbeat, minimal affair from DJ Dice effortlessly and purposefully steams into full flight, teasing a playfully childlike riff into an unlikely big room soundsystem scenario, proving again that moombahton is always full of surprises and curious intent.

13. Ya Ghali (Mendez edit) – Guitarra Band

Guitarra Band – Ya Ghali (Mendez Edit) | PROPER VERSION by Mendez (ElCucoRecordings)

The mutual global cosign continues, with this latin creation from the El Cuco stable reaching out east for a rare “Bellyton” joint. Mendez is a producer who matches a breadth of vision with well-drilled production chops, as this tight, hypnotic edit proves.

14. In The Zone (Boyfriend edit) – The Weeknd

The Weeknd – In The Zone (Boyfriend Edit) by BOYFRIEND

The Weeknd plus Moombahton may seem like the result of a hipster focus group, but with Lithuanian producer Boyfriend’s ear for brooding melody, cavernous soundscapes and unanswerable beats applied to Abel Tesfaye’s plaintive urban love letters, any such argument is instantly proved pointless.

15. Goshen (Smash & Grab edit) – Beirut

This glorious edit shows how Moombahton is capable of more than throwing out bangers, it can also handle nuance, grace and sensitivity, as Smash & Grab show that melody and acoustics have no need to fear the dembow.

16. Caboclo – Frankie Grimes

While producers were trying to pick up the pieces in the wake of Munchi’s Firepower, Ireland-based Frankie took his own path, seeking out a more soulfully expressive sound. Caboclo shows where he ended up – in a refined and beautiful place.

17. Crawl – Stlkrfxxx

01 STLKRFXXX – Crawl (DOWNLOAD IN DESCRIPTION) by starfoxxxchicago

Love can come in many forms, and in the case of David Beltran, the other person doesn’t always need to know too much about it. Dragging witch house down to 108 level, this Moombahton taken to dark and exciting places.

Generation Bass Presents MoombahLuV Volume 1

Make MoombahLuV Not War <3

I wanted to put this compilation together for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons was to showcase some of the subtler sounds of Moombahton, thereby reinforcing its diversity.

I also wanted to show that it’s a genre of music, not just for the clubs, but also for listening to at home or in the car, when you’re feeling down, in luv or heartbroken and in the mood for romance.

With the concept of “Luv” in mind, I wanted to ensure that it remained cheese-free and wanted to keep it away from the satin sheets ideology! So this compilation is more about the “angst” & “matters of the heart” rather than the physicality of “luurve-making”.

Luv is what keeps us going, it’s what makes the world go around, as clichéd as that might sound, but I believe it to be true. Well, that’s just the way I see the world!

ONE LUV!

Thanks 2 everybody who participated in this project!

& Thank YOU for listening.

FOREWORD & TRACK SYNOPSIS

The foreword and track synopsis is by a man who I admire highly, Neil Queen Jones, one of the top Moombahton journalists in this scene.

Over to Neil:

Generation bass presents Moombahluv Volume One

You should never ask what Moombahton is, it’ll only be something new tomorrow. Moombahton is more than just a global bass genre, it’s a wide-eyed, infectious field project in EDM mechanics that relishes discovery. Dave Nada’s creation bears the bruises that come from repeatedly butting up against any limitation it comes up against: the tough bass rumble of moombahcore galvanised it, then moombahsoul proved that something deeper lurked beneath the playful exterior – and now Moombahluv Volume One shows what this thing is capable of – over 17 track, Moombahluv points the way forward.

1. Home – Phi Unit

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes’ hypnotic, lilting anthem gets taken from the campfire to last-track-of-the-night, sun-rising status with this judicious workout. This is how uplifting needs to be done.

2. None Of Dem (Th0r remix) – Royksopp & Robyn

One of Moombahton’s strength is that it doesn’t seek to reinvent the wheel, it just happens to own a new set of tyres. Th0r’s exquisite repurposing of this slice of Scandinavian class pushes it jet-heeled towards the 108bpm dancefloor, without compromising the original’s potency.

3. Mouthful Of Diamonds (DJ 4Head edit) – Phantogram

Phantogram – Mouthful Of Diamonds (DJ 4HEAD! Moombahluv edit) on MoombahLuv Vol.1!!! by DJ 4Head!

When Dave Nada pitched down Dutch house, who knew it would’ve ended up here? Wistfully indie female vocals and guitar riffs are the latest components to be assimilated by the global bass hybrid –proving once again that Moombahton is a sound that confounds expectation.

4. Bob James – El Nomada

Bob james moombahsoul by El Nomada

The breaks legend gets a serious mid-tempo global retread from El Nomada. This one’s perfect for kicking back and savouring the good life; a gentle bossanova is tweaked to form the distinctive Moombahton beat, flute lazily marks time and the percussion irons out any rough edges. Wonderful.

5. Everything She Wants (Thomas Blondet edit) – Wham!

WHAM! Everything She Wants (Thomas Blondet’s MoombahSoul Remix) by Thomas Blondet

This could so easily have gone badly wrong, yet now seems so logically right. At the hands of the glacially cool Blondet, George Michael’s finest moment gets the perfect Moombahton rub-down, retooled and ready for a liberated, hipster-allergic dancefloor. Effortlessly suave.

NB: This was previously released on Sabo’s sol selectas massive ep 3.

6. Another Girl (Kan Takahiko edit)– Jacques Greene

Jacques Greene – Another Girl (Moombahton Edit) by kantakahiko

Pure tranquil bliss.  Japanese producer Takahiko gives the highly rated Montreal producer Greene, a serious make over here with a sumptuous edit, one that shows that Moombahton is now comfortable in its skin. Stripped of excess, Another Girl allows the dembow to work in perfect unison with the music, building into a balaeric wonder.

7. 93 Til’ Moombah – Cabo Blanco

93 Til’ Moombah by Cabo Blanco

Moving quickly to shoot down the notion that a woman’s role in Moombahton necessitates a bikini, this dreamy serving of moombahsoul interlaces the beautiful female vocal with the wide-open expanse of the production to heavenly effect.

8. Sliding Scale – Doc Adam

Doc reins in his trademark jackhammer beats, this time tooling up with lavish strings and Q-Tip samples, yet his tight, gristle-free production style remains uncompromised. Sliding Scale proves that Doc Adam is not only of the OGs who commands respect, but one who’ll form part of Moombahton’s future, too.

9. Suave – Freaky Phillip

The tropical beats are in full working order here, as Freaky Phillip reps the Dominican Republic, stripping Moombahton down to its constituents; the dembow crunch, the Dirty Dutch riffs, the euphoric lifts – and sends them floating into deep space.

10. A Change – Elonious
