A little while back ago Generation Bass released an E.P. called “The New Wave of Moombahton: Volume 1”. The E.P. has 30 tracks of nothing but Moombahton remixes and originals by up and coming artists and producers. Make sure to grab the download links for sides 1 and 2 along with playlists after the jump!
Man of many trades, blender of styles, and musical chameleon SaBBo is back! He’s been handing out free Moombahton tracks via his soundcloud for a couple of years now, but here’s his official drop.
The DEEPATON EP is four cuts of deep, soulful and sexy Moombahton deep.
Naughty samples galore in the cheeky titled “Rubbin’ They Tits” with a classic jacked up Lil’ Kim sample in the hook. The playful synth line and galloping snare enhance the after-hours feel this joint has.
The second killer track is “Touch Me”, a riddim joint which borders on Bashment, that partly grabs back to SaBBo?s other work as a dancehall producer. The riding snare and super nice conga percussion blend perfectly with the Moombah rhythm and the sweet girly voice asking you to “touch me” draws you directly into the warmth of the Moombahsoul.
The track “Stuxnet” sounds like SaBBo found a classic 808 drum machine which has been mysteriously updated to 2011 by the gods of Moombah. A stripped, bare track with emphasis on the rhythms that propel this to dancefloor fodder for any club that knows whats up.
Closing with “I’m Ready”, features Onili and with its lush vocals and bleepin’ synths is a textbook example of the deep direction people like David Heartbreak and SaBBo are taking the new genre in. The beats are aimed at lady legs, percussion to shake the backside and catchy vocal hooks to sing along too, this jam can’t go wrong in the clubs.
Generation Bass prides itself in being one of the strongholds of the Moombahton movement. Developing and giving way to young producers to take the genre into new directions from Goombaton & Gabbahton to Moombahsoul and everything in-between…
SaBBo delivers another killer release for Generation Bass, furthering the warm sounds of Moombahsoul in these 4 hot, blistering tracks!
Yo! These are some of the tunes I’m currently into in the genre of Moombahton. I hope to follow up this series of “mini mixes” with all sorts of genres because that’s just the type of cat I am! The dope part of this (in my opinion) is that you guys can have all the tracks I include in these mixes! Enjoy!
2 Deep and babySTEPS got together to bring us SWAG: Moombahton E.P. You know how much we love moombahton here at WGWI!! So when I came across these dudes I just had to share it with you guys. Make sure to download your free copy here. Also you can grab a whole lot of free tunes from 2 Deep and babySTEPS on their soundclouds.

Has anyone heard of The Weeknd? If you’re one of Drake’s 2 million twitter followers, chances are that you’ve already heard of the Toronto based r&b singer also known as Abel Tesfaye. The Canadian rapstar has been hyping them up lately at his shows, also mentioning them on his blog and twitter account. The Weeknd started off as a silent project when Abel leaked the three songs into a YouTube account. With Drake’s help, The Weeknd quickly won the heart of bloggers as they labeled it “Hipster R&B” and “PBR&B” which I personally think is stupid . What makes this music different from others is the haunting downtempo beats that’s accompanied by dark and sensual lyrics about lust, drugs, hurt, and sex. Now with a strong cult following , The Weekend has released their 9 – track album titled “House Of Balloons” on their Official Website.
I have to admit, The Weeknd has been one of the best things that happened to r&b music along with the rise of Frank Ocean and there’s no sign of stopping here. Abel has already confirmed two follow ups to “House Of Balloons”, one for Summer (Thursday) and one for Autumn (Echoes Of Silence). I’ll leave you with the latest video from, “The Morning” which is on heavy rotation on my iPod right now.
I want to also quickly mention David Heartbreak , the Brooklyn born producer from North Carolina has just released his remix of The Weeknd’s “Rolling Stone” track from the House Of Ballons mixtape. This remix will be featured on his Moombahsoul compilation which will be posted here on Whatsgoodwithit as soon as more information unveils.
Oh man! Tonight is going to be a rager! Dave Nada, the CREATOR of moombaton, Dillon Frances, Sabo along with the Blow Your Head residents all under one roof?! Need I say more?! Make sure to send your name to maddecentLA@gmail.com before 11 for free entrance.
***We successfully trapped Samo Sound Boy [Trouble & Bass] into an exclusive WGWit interview!****
WGWit: Samo Sound Boy, welcome to the eclectic world of WGWit! We do hustle bass heavy music. So tell us, how did the name “Samo Sound Boy” come about ?
Samo Sound Boy: No big story there really… My friends would call me Samo, but that alone sounded plain for a DJ name. I think I tried to register “dj samo” on myspace when I wanted to put some tracks up to share, but that account was already taken by a dude from Japan who made futuristic minimal-house porn soundtracks. So I thought really hard about it but couldn’t come up with anything good… a while later I ate at this indian buffet in yonkers, NY with a couple friends. I wound up eating this one dish that I thought was saag paneer at the time… but was probably something else in retrospect. Whatever it was, it gave me the most insane fever that night, a temperature of 108, just crazy… I was getting the shakes and sweats like mad, but then just passed out and started having this dream where I was talking to a raccoon who was wearing a golden vest. There was this strange beat playing from somewhere and he kept repeating “let me bang, let me bang” in the voice from the dj deeon record. Then he looked at me right in the eye and said “samo sound boy”. I woke up sometime the next day and registered that name on myspace.
WGWit: Are you from LA ?
Samo Sound Boy: I was born in Manhattan and grew up there, and then lived in New Hampshire. Since then i’ve lived in Florida, Buenos Aires, Seattle, and then Los Angeles. Far and away, this is my favorite place and I love living in LA.
WGWit: When did you sign with Trouble & Bass ? When can we expect your next release ?
Samo Sound Boy: I signed with Trouble and Bass early this year. They brought me to play with them in Washington DC last summer when I went out to New York to play at Ghetto Gothik. They had been supporting some of my early tracks a lot, which was big for me because I was really grinding to get my stuff out there. After that show in DC they asked me to do a Heavy Bass Champions release, which I did, and then we decided to just keep going. My next release is coming out on T&B this summer. It’s an ep with some big remixes of the lead track which is called “Shuffle Code”. Nobody has really heard it yet, but we’ve got some special things in store leading up to release, including a really fucking crazy and bugged out music video staring a smoked-out octopus who drives around LA in a drop-top caddy. The whole thing is like a twisted up take on John Carpenter’s Escape From La mashed up with the world created through the cover art from Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle .
WGWit: Here at WGWit, we are “trouble makers” [T&B fans per-say], we’ve blogged and supported past work from: AC Slater, Drop the Lime, Udachi (party like us) ect. but we are currently following Zombies For Money like crazy! Can we expect any collaboration with Zombies For Money & Samo Sound Boy ? or are we thinking too outside the box ? The heavy tropical sound is off the hook!
Samo Sound Boy: That’s what’s up! Those guys are my homies and I love to hear that. Honestly, I hadn’t ever thought about a collab before, but it’s a cool idea for sure. For me it’s easier to collab with somebody if we’re in the same room, but who knows maybe that’ll happen someday soon.
WGWit: Do you ever plan to produce any moombahton ?
Samo Sound Boy: the short answer is no. I think there’s some really cool elements in some of the moombahton stuff, and I love Dave Nada’s story of how he came up with idea for it, but the idea of producing under the umbrella of any one genre just isn’t for me. It’s too restraining. I take a lot of influence from different styles and productions, but im just trying to do my own thing really. That’s how I keep things fresh and interesting for myself, by just trying to make up the sounds I really want hear and not really caring about trends within genres.
