[EDM Origins: Throwback] [Moombahton Funk / Heavy Baile:] AggroKids – Killa


Throwback to this incredibly catchy moombahton track with mesmerizing amounts of bass and sampled Patois-sounding vocals repeating over and over. EDM artists, AggroKids (the combined effort of David Heartbreak & Rell the Soundbender) “Killa” has a sick, filthy bass-line that runs throughout creating a guaranteed club/floor-filler. Killa is certainly one of the better tracks of the Moombahton Forever, a latin-heavy electronic mixtape full of baile music and bass.

You can find more on AggroKids on these social media websites and download “Killa” from their Souncloud.

[Booty Bass/Moombahton] Big Sean – I Don’t F*ck With U (feat. E-40) [Los XL Bootleg]


This bootleg comes to us from moombahton focused DJ, Los XL. For this take on Big Sean’s “IDFWU” XL emphasizes a moombahton beat blending smoothly with the catchy and repeating sample (the “yeah-ee-yeah-ee-yeah!”) that Kanye West added to the original track (his sample is fleshed out at the end of the original song as a sort of outro, which was also produced by West). The result is a dance-able track that lives up to its “booty-bass” genre. Check out Los XL at his Facebook page where he has several other moombahton tracks and remixes.

[THROWBACK]|[Moombahton/Reggae] Gwen Stefani – Hollaback Girl (Dancehollaback Remix by Tony Kanal ft. Elan)


Part of my new Foundations and Origins posts where songs and music that influenced today’s genres such as Electro/Hip-Hop, Bass, Dubstep, Trap and more are highlighted. Our first post will feature an early example of the now, well-established genre of its own Moombahton a blend of house and reggaeton.

Today was a hot day in the ATL and a preview of Spring as temperatures reached over 75 degrees F. What better way to chill out and relax at the park, pool or outside in the city then by listening to this Throwback remix of Gwen Stefani’s classic “Hollaback Girl.” This particular remix puts a Moombahton feel on the song with elements of dancehall and reggaeton, which by no means were brand new then (in 2008) but were being established as genres in their own right. Gwen’s songs have been remixed into hip-hop and more often, electronic remixes for years now such as the highly successful Jacques Lu Cont progressive house remix of her “What You Waitin’ For?” from 2008 as well.
