Spinning Into the Future

Jen Lasher

If you’re not already hyped for 2012, the DJs spinning on New Year’s Eve at U Street Music Hall’s “Moombahton Massive X” should fix that. They’re just as excited to ring in the next phase of moombahton, a D.C.-created, bass-heavy genre that combines house, reggaeton and dancehall. Here, the DJs preview tracks they’ll be playing as you dance away 2011.

Cam Jus: “Carimbo” by Schlachthofbronx. “Once it gets going, it makes people dance more energetically than usual for a track at 110 bpm. It’s a beast.”

Billy the Gent: “Neurons (Gent x Jawns Remix)” by Muffler. “Heavy new remix we just wrapped up. Really excited to test this out on the U Hall sound system.”

Sabo: “Dale Mas Claps” by Sabo x Melo. “The title says it all: Gimme more claps. I have a feeling there is gonna be a lot a hand-clapping going on to ring in 2012!”

Nadastrom: “Dusted” by Nadastrom feat. Sabo. “This deep and dark cut off of our latest EP might get two plays: once early in the night to set the mood and again in those early hours of the morning.”

Jen Lasher: “Say My Name” by Nadastrom feat. Munchi and Jen Lasher. “As featured vocalist, it will most certainly be a fun one to perform.”

U Street Music Hall, 1115A U St. NW; Sat., 9 p.m., $20, for 21 and older; 202-588-1880. (U St.-Cardozo)
