The moombahton movement continues with boombachero

Who would have guessed that we’d still be writing about moombahton after Labor Day? Amid a year of various musical developments it looks like this one is here to stay. The genre’s staying power is due in large part to producers eager to collaborate and experiment with the style. Interest in moombahton has also led to increased interest in cumbia and guarachero, Latin styles of which electronic music fans have only passing interest or knowledge.

In the spirit of this musical evolution, two exciting new DJ mixes flip moombahton back to its origins. With the Subguey (pronounced Subway) series, DJs Orion and Pagame have sped up moombahton, introduced guarachero elements, and ended up with a double-timed concoction that has been dubbed boombachero. Basically, the style sounds like moombahton on uppers with a bouncy, swing feel.

DJ Orion’s mix relies heavily on the H&M crew before building to a frenetic close with an heavily re-worked and re-mixed bit of Rusko’s “Woo Boost.” In the same way, Pagame filters moombahton highlights through guarachero, creating a mix that is almost tribal in intensity.



DJ Orion’s mix has already maxed out Soundcloud (and Pagame’s is close behind), but you can cop these mixes here.
