More! More! Alvin Risk is absolutely on fire! Following up his “Dirty Dancer” remix from early this week, this rising (perhaps shooting) star is back with another absolutely house-rocking banger. Bringing in the hardcore moombahton/dubstep combo again, Alvin Risk has found the perfect formula to craft the post-modern dance song. The breakdown in this song packs in sounds resembling both Major Lazer’s epileptic dance beats and Skrillex’s deep-bass synths. If you like this, I’ve got yet another one from Alvin Risk coming later tonight. Stay (fine) tuned and keep on the beat, baby.

I’m lovin’ this new wave of moombahton/dance remixes coming out from the biggest rising stars in the dubstep/electro game. Alvin Risk delivers the perfect combination of electrification and feel-good grooves in this soon-to-be hit from Oh My. For those of you that may have never been exposed to Alvin Risk before, this is the perfect crossover song. This one is sure to appeal to dubstep, moomba, and pop fans alike. Monday be damned, it’s never too early to get groovin’.
What is Moombahton you ask? For those of you not familiar, Moomahton is the swagalicious lovechild of Daddy Dubstep and Momma Reggaeton Dancealot. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the portrait of the coolest family on the block. Courtesy of Play Me Records, we have a free sample of what to expect from their new selection of hot beats in the coming year. This track from The Bolivian Mining Affair is the most addicting dance track I’ve heard all year, without a shout of a doubt. Look for their forthcoming EP, “Are You Up For Getting Down,” in January 2012. Go forth my moombaheads, and jump to this.
I swear, I’m putting this one up because of Diplo (really). We all know my stance on Skrillex’s awesomeness by now, but I’ve never really delved too deep into the Moombahton side of electronic music. While I know Skrillex had said his rendition of “Reptile” was originally intended to be a moomba-groove, this one brings in the king of the dance – Mr. Diplo himself. The combination of the two unique sounds slapped together makes one heavy-charged dance beat that makes it impossible to sit still. Bump it up and you’ll see what I mean.
