So what is Transnational Moombahton?
Everything is Transnational in this world, we are all ONE…that’s my point about Transnationalism…I wish the world would share this view! It’s painful that it doesn’t!
Almost 3 years ago I dabbled with Transnational Dubstep, which resulted in the “Calling” series of mixtapes, which gained an underground cult following worldwide much to my annoyance and displeasure :-)
Just last year this resulted in a fully fledged CD release on the Six Degrees Label in the States, “Generation Bass Presents Transnational Dubstep” and the CD gained artistic and critical acclaim worldwide much to my frustration :-)
I chose this time around to do the same with Moombahton!
Moombahton is one of the most exciting and dynamic genres around nowadays in EDM. Of course I have been there with it since day one and I have witnessed how it has grown, diversified and improved as time has gone on.
I’d like to think our blog played a crucial & influential role in the development of this genre in opening up the minds of the producers involved in it so that they would not shy away from experimentations with music from territories far from the essence of what Moombahton initially represented.
So this mix represents the worldwide appeal and influence of Moombahton and showcases its innate ability to mutate in order to suit music from all part of the world, be it the Middle East, Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and of course South America!
The mix has been laid down exclusively for my good friend & brother, Pathaan, most famous for touring with David Bowie, soundscaping sunsets and his eclectic, exotic & electronic musical taste. It is for his new Digital Music Magazine ‘Globetronica’ and is available as a download and will also feature as a podcast on i-Tunes as ‘World Odyssey Mix’ which you can access both exclusively from http://www.globetronica.org
