A Very Moombah X-Mas
Dave Nada & Tittsworth!!
Moombahton is a fusion genre of house music and reggaeton that was created by American DJ and producer Dave Nada in Washington, D.C. Nada came up with the hypnotic, exotic style of house music almost by accident. In 2009 while DJ-ing his cousin’s “skipping party” -- a noon-time party where kids skip school to attend -- he began to get paranoid, thinking any hard-hitting techno or flashy house music would drive this young crowd of delinquents to extremes. Feeling like a chaperone, Nada chilled the crowd by pitching-down Afrojack's remix of "Moombah" by Silvio Ecomo & Chuckie and mixing it with some pitched-down reggaeton beats. The crowd went wild -- a good kind of wild -- so Nada returned to his home studio and began recording a series of edits and remixes in this style, which he dubbed Moombahton. Nada coined the name as a portmanteau of Moombah (a track by Dutch house DJ Chuckie and producer/DJ Silvio Ecomo), and reggaeton (itself a neologism combining reggae with the Spanish suffix -ton, signifying big).
Tittsworth, is an American DJ, producer, night club owner, and record label owner. He has worked with the likes of Q-Tip, Theophilus London, Pitbull, Kid Sister and more. He has been featured on MTV, VIBE, Pitchfork, XLR8R, and countless other outlets. Tittsworth established his own record label in 2006 with partner DJ Ayres, T&A records. T&A Records has played an important role in cultivating multiple movements in dance music, especially Baltimore club and Moombahton. Moombahton rhythms and influences continue to be found in wide-reaching music today, starting with Spotify's most-streamed moments.

Moombahton (pronounced /ˌmoombaˈtoʊn/) is a genre of electronic dance music that was created by American dj/producer Dave Nada  at a high school homecoming "skipping party" for his younger cousin in Washington, D.C., in the fall of 2009. The specific event that stimulated NADA's development of the Moombahton genre was his slowing the Afrojack remix of the Silvio Ecomo & DJ Chuckie song "Moombah" to 108 beats per minute. Because that tempo nears that of the reggaeton, Nada created the neologism "Moombahton" by combining the title of the track "Moombah" and the "ton" ending of the word "reggaeton" and applied it to his new genre.
In the period between the events of the homecoming party in Fall, 2009, and March, 2010, Nada perfected his vision of the new genre in the recording studio utilizing the intuitions and insights garnered from the "skipping party" experience to create a five track EP of newly-minted Moombahton tracks that dropped in March 2010 with the promotional assistance and support of DJ Ayres and DJ Tittsworth at T & A Records  The 5 tracks on the EP Moombahton are "Moombahton," "Riverside," a Moombahton version of the Sidney Samson hit ,"Ruffcut Moombahton Dub," featuring a sample of the Maluca hit song, "El Tigeraso," "Ruff Cut Moombaton Edit, and "Seductive Sound." The "5-pack" Moombaton sampler was uploaded to Soundcloud in early March 2010, where it garnered immediate attention and stimulated the creation of other Moombahton tracks by a handful of artists in the United States and Canada.
However, Nada's "Moombahton" was much more than simply "Dutch House pitched down to 108 BPMs." The original Moombahton tracks feature not only the standard moombahton 108 BPMs but also 1.) chopped vocals, 2.) layered acapellas, 3.) extended and enhanced build-ups, as well as the introduction of 4.) new drums and percussion elements. These signature characteristics of the genre are known as the "5 elements of classic moombahton."
