Some new new. #moombahton #experimental #edm #partylife #spdet #moombaplus

Many words, thoughts and emotions (both positive and negative) regarding the Dave Nada-created moombahton sound have been brought to the table in 2013. As the sound enters its fourth year in existence, moombahton has evolved from being Washington, DC’s pride and joy to a global phenomenon. Futhermore, creator Nada has arguably grown as well. The past twelve months have seen the producer touring more frequently than ever before, and as well, get married to fellow DJ and producer Jen Lasher. Somehow, in the midst of a wild and oftentimes tumultuous year, Nada (and by extension, moombahton) has persevered, remained positive and is arguably emerged better from the experience. I had the chance to catch up with Dave and ask a few questions regarding developments in his personal life, in moombahton, and in music overall. As always, Dave is candid, aware and keeping an eye on pushing not just moombahton, but all music, ahead.

When the label you keep putting releases out on repeatedly gets mentioned as innovators of the music and a part of the ever pushing forward part of moombahton, it’s really easy to be happy. When I was doing nothing but house stuff, this type of shit was just not even a possibility. I fell for this shit a few years ago but it took me forever to be able to just get to the point where I had to “go for it”. I was behind the scenes for a long time. I learned shit every single day being around some of the best the underground detroit locals for a decade now. This style might not be what it is anywhere else because Detroit is such a heavy House and Techno city that it’s hard to be a 4 year old genre when you’re fucking with shit that is older than you. Make sense? So even though I don’t see a big return here for the stuff I am doing I know that I am actually putting stuff out for those outside of my own area. I’m sure there’s dudes in Chicago who feel the same way.

So I started this tune yesterday. Sampled one of my favorites the MC5 in defense of weirdness against those high society types. #moombahton #SherBurt #partylife #spdet #moombaplus
