- Moombahton is a new and growing genre that fuses Dutch house music and reggaeton that has its roots in DC nightlife
- November 2009: DC-based DJ Dave Nada was invited to spin at a local party
- He finds a crowd not listening to the intense electronic music he typically played
- The party had reggaeton, bachata, and Latin music going on
- To prevent killing the vibe, Nada decided to slow down the Afrojack remix of Chuckie’s “Moombah” to 108 beats per minute, and behold… Moombahton was born!
DC nightlife is not only the birthplace of Moombahton, but also the practice ground for Jazz icon Duke Ellington, legendary march composer John Philip Sousa and funk/soul singer Roberta Flack. It’s also where the straightedge movement was started by Minor Threat front man Ian MacKaye. Nightlife group Panorama Productions was sponsored current #1 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren’s first United States Work Visa.Tweet
