Headphones Banger 005: Mau Mau "Moombahton and sand on your feet"

Mau Mau understands very well the relationship of music and dance. One of his powers is his tireless groove to play music you can dance to, almost like if it were hypnotizing your feet.

Since before his parties at LOgO as one half of the colossal Baijiu Robot Mau Mau has been bringing much music to dance to China.

Due to the celebration of the second anniversary of The Ice Cream Truck, that will materialize this weekend with a Beach Party, Mau Mau is formally introducing Moombahton to us.

Mau Mau says “On March 2010, DJ Nada of Nadastrom, emerged with the first EP of Moombahton. He calls it “mid-tempo global bass music for the universe.” A year’s gone by, and it seems like Moombahton’s here to stay – thanks to support from artists around the world, Radio One DJs like Toddla T and Mary Anne Hobbes, and a growing base in LA (Nada’s new hometown, where he’s partying hard to support the new sound). Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint has just given the genre its first commercial release, and DJs from Crookers to Sinden are dropping it in their sets.

“If you’re coming from listening/dancing to house tempo 4/4 music (like I was) Moombahton can feel awkward and sluggish at first. Try listening to a whole mix (Brodinski’s European Introduction to Moombahton @Mad Decent) and the groove gets infectious fast – the slower tempo leaves breathing space for tropical percussion and big electro synths. It’s sexy.

“Watch out for Moombahton on rooftops this summer in Shanghai.”
