Its been far too long since I posted up a new mix. I was going for something that would be perfect for driving around with your windows down or just hanging with friends in a park or on a rooftop. It starts out with soul, boogie and modern funk then transitions into more RnB inflected house and warm Detroit vibes. Hope you enjoy!

I have been a big fan of moombahton since its inception just over a year ago, and I am really proud to drop my first original moombahton EP. For those who have been living under a rock the past 18 months, moombahton is a mid-tempo style of dance music that was invented by Dave Nada, who totally wrecked shop at Bubblin back in December. The origins of it have been talked about quite a bit, so if you want to read more about moombahton or Dave Nada check out this interview with Dave over at the Fader. Essentially, its all the best elements of reggaeton, dancehall, cumbia and Dutch house wrapped up in one style.
The title track on the EP, Supremo, flips a sax sample into a kind of big room latin b-boy vibe. I’ve been getting really great reactions from this track since I finished it. The b-side, which is actually my favorite, is called Coroa de Ouro which translates into Crown of Gold. Not really too sure what the sample actually is, but it sounds like some sort of Brazilan kids choir. Both tracks are available for free download through the soundcloud link below, but they are also for sale at Juno Download and Amazon if you feel like paying for them. Enjoy!
Ghosts on Tape smashed it at Bubblin last weekend. If you weren’t able to make it and get a hard copy of Bubblin Vol 3, here are a couple links to the mix. Its a great mix and he covers a lot of ground, even squeezing in Green Velvet’s classic ‘Answering Machine’.
MJ Cole comes thru with that free fire. This track is a funky peak time bomb with slippery, wonky keys guaranteed to get people feeling elastic on the dancefloor, plus he’s giving you a WAV!!! Snag it up! Hover over player below for link to appear…
