This week I’m veering off just slightly to bring you some Moombahton!
Wait, you don’t know Moombahton? I was exposed to this new genre a few months ago thanks to PartyBen. It’s a sound invented by Dave Nada. It happened one night at a house party when he slowed an Afrojack remix down to 108 beats per minute (interview). Essentially it’s reggaton meets dutch house music … and it’s fabulous!
My first track is the inspiration for today’s post. It’s nearly 30 mins of pure, rump-shakin, remix ala Moombahton. DJ Schmolli – Moombahcuts
First and Foremost – R.I.P Whitney Houston. You were a major music icon to me growing up and despite the path you chose for your life, you will never be forgotten.
You may or may not realize that this Tuesday is Valentine’s Day. While it’s just another day for many of us (singles) there are plenty of LOVE inspired mashups out there to help you celebrate … or to help drown out the sound of cupid’s arrow as it strikes all the love crazy couples in the world.
We shouldn’t have left you without a dope beat to step to… So we’re back!
Oh yeah, Bootie Lovers and Mashup Maniacs … This Saturday, October 8th, BootieSL is headed to Burning Man with ALL Second Life DJ Line up! It’s THE comeback event of the Year and we expect to see you there!
5-7pm SL – Joseph Lian is warming things up with some dark, gothy goodness
7-9pm SL – DJ Diva on Deck (That’s me!)… Mashups
9-11pm SL – Miss Cyberpink … Mashups
11pm-1am SL – Walton Vieria … Mashups
1-3am SL DJ Diva is back to rock your Bootie till the break of dawn.
My apologies my fellow Bootie lovers! I’ve been slacking… as usual 🙂 I hope that this post will make it up to you!
Have you heard of the Global Mashup Crew? Well I hadn’t until earlier when I was scouring SoundCloud for some new flavors and I certainly found some good stuff when I came across GMC. If you’re an Eminem fan you must give a listen to their tribute album [Here]!
This track feels straight out of the early 90’s rap scene to me:
