Mad Decent, the label run by producer Diplo, is releasing a compilation of songs in an emerging genre of hip-hop called Moombahton (pronounce it like “reggaeton”). Moombahton is a synthesis of Dutch house music and reggaeton, and it takes its name from a song called “Moombah” that Washington, DC, DJ Dave Nada slowed down in 2009 to create a more bouncy atmosphere.


Moombahton is either a pan-global syncretism or another way to average out the interesting parts of regional scenes into something palatable. Either way, Diplo likes it and is releasing the second in his series of Blow Your Head compilations on May 31, featuring a litany of Moombahton tracks. The first Blow Your Head compilation was for an obscure genre called dubstep, which is now extremely popular with everyone including middle-schoolers. So Moombahton—show us what you got.
