Remember when screwed and chopped remixes were huge a decade ago? The days of Paul Wall slowing Southern hip-hop to a crawl may be over, but here in D.C., DJ Dave Nada's giving rise to a whole new genre of dance music called moombahton. (It's pronounced moom-bah-tone.) The backstory: One day at his cousin's high school skip party, Nada slowed down banging house tracks by Afrojack and Sidney Samson to match the 108-beats-a-minute pace of reggaeton. The pitched-down tracks still keep the rave vibe, thanks to thick, chunky bass beats, but the pace of dancing is far easier. (In fact, the rhythms are more fun for dancing than the reggaeton.) He's just released his second downloadable moombahton mix, "Punk Rock Latino," which is also available for download at the link above. Grab those tracks, then head out to hear Nada spin at the release party at Velvet Lounge, where he'll be mixing moombahton into reggaeton, cumbria and other Caribbean dance grooves. There's no cover all night.
