The New Wave of Moombahton is well & truly here!
Here’s a selection of some of the dudes coming through in the past 6 months or so causing some Supa-MoombaH MayHeM!
It’s by no means an exhaustive selection or even definitive and also it is in no particular order. A few Generation Bass artists there too but of course I’m gonna include dudes I’m feelin’ and am going to be releasing on our label.
I’m sure there’s quite a few I’ve missed, apologies, don’t despair, cause as with the MoombahLadies post, there’s always Round 2!
1. Freaky Philip
3. Dyson Danoadando
6. Etc! Etc!
7. Market Price
9. La Muerta
11. Jay Fay
12. El Cuco
13. Halo Nova
15. Shelco Garcia
16. Sazon Booya
18. Pickster One
Reppin’ the Dominican Republic with his sexxy moombah grooves!
He comes from the land down under & I think he is responsible for the majority of the bush fires there!
From Houston, USA, from Moombahcore 2 Reaggaecore, kid’s got some really innovative ideas!
From Orlando, USA, Bigmakk is moving up fast in the hot list and is backed by Heartbreak!
Hailing from the City of Angels & consisting of Ian Johnson & Danl Goodman, this is ferocious stuff!
Also hailing from LA & aka Jos.e Guerrero & gettin’ played by the likes of Kissy Sell Out on Radio 1!
Yet another LA based duo, they’re well worth their Market Price.
Puge might just revitalize the Portugese economy with his forthcoming release on Generation Bass [wishful thinking, hey].
The true identity of this man, myth, legend is a closely guarded Generation Bass secret and will stay that way for the foreseeable future!
Hailing from Mexico or does he?
Elonious is the first Canadian on our list and his forthcoming Generation Bass release is gonna create some massive smoke signals around the world and not only in his native Canadian territory.
This 18 year old, a Saint Louis resident, is my tip for one of the major stars of the future. Another Generation Bass signee, his EP will provide some evidence of my prediction!
EL CUCO CREW
El Cuco, led by the charasmatic Frank Mendez, seem to have the Nu Moombahcore scene sewn up. Moombahton flows through Frank’s blood, he lives for it and breathes it 24/7!
Perhaps, one of the most passionate Moombahnista’s after our very own Heartbreak!
Aka Nick, started the ball rolling with the Generation Bass Moombah series with his Goombaton EP mixing up Moombahton with Chip Bass sounds.
He made it onto Toddla T’s Radio 1 show, and also his EP, is I think, the first featured Moombahton release in Mixmag who said this:
“There’s no question now, Moombahton is here to stay” !!!! – MIXMAG! AUGUST EDITION 2011
You can still grab his EP HERE
One of the most exciting Nu Moombahnista’s to keep your eye on.
Julio Mejia is from Miami and he’s setting the MoombaFloor on fyah!
When I asked in the Moombah Facebook group who are the hot nu rising stars, this dude’s name cropped up a lot and so he is either highly rated or has loads of his friends in that group 🙂 But I think it’s the former.
First came to my attention on Munchi’s recent & brilliant compilation!
They’ve made such an impact in such a small space of time that it’s hard to consider them so new, but they are one of the ones leading the Nu Wave!
From Detroit, USA, another one to watch!
As with Sazon Booya, Pickster One has made a huge impact in such a short space of time and it’s easy to forget he is new, especially since he sometimes pairs up with one of the OG Moombahnista’s, DJ Melo.
From Arizona, he is often now seen MoombahGroupHuggin’ wiv the El Cuco boyz!
The first Moombah Band, quite possibly.
Def the first innovators of Balkaton!
Coming soon on Generation Bass:
babySTEPS aka Jacob Gallardo is from San Diego and he excels in both Moombahton & Moombahcore.
Yet another La duo blazing it!
Originally from the Czech Republic but now living in Peru, one of the leading Moombah X (Moombahton Experimental) producers who also does some pretty nasty Moombahcore & Moombashment!
David Beltran of Starfoxxx was reborn STLKRFXXX and also he brought with him something completely new and original, BRUJATON!
The second Moombah X producer to be featured here, he created something which got deeeeep inside of me and has never left.
I need a Witch Doctor Exorcist to get that Brujaton out of me!
