Moombahton is something I’m ready to admit that I totally don’t understand. I thought the same thing of kuduro. I’m pretty sure the lack of general appreciation I have for the two genres is because I’m white. What? I’m kidding. For real though, I imagine both genres sound much better played loudly, in a club, preferably with several bouquets of sweaty ladies blooming their pants off.
So, when a few tracks from a compilation curated by JESS & CRABBE came our way I let my mind wander a bit and I took myself into what could be a steaming kuduro basement club. I adjusted my monitors, turned the volume up, and noodled with the EQ when I played these…
You know what? I kinda liked it.
