Dillon Francis and Diplo featuring Maluca: Que Que
A dear friend of mine, Sam Barry, has been talking about Moombahton for months now, insisting that this genre will take precedence in the electronic scene this summer. Moombahton is a fresh genre, created in 2009 by David Nada, similar to reggaeton with a BPM of 108. Other characterizations include chopped vocals, layered acapellas, various drum/percussion elements, and extended/enhanced buildups. Mad Decent‘s founder is all about the Moombahton right now. Diplo is looked at by many as a dictator of taste, igniting the fuel behind past electronic trends that have spread like wildfire. He recently said, “Moombahton is so mad and buzzy and weird and crazy . We are on its dick here at Mad Decent. I thought I’d make a summer mix for your house parties where I can put it into a context for all you fine radio subscribers. Have fun and get that Que Que record I did wıth Dillon and Maluca!!” And there you have it. The Moombahton 2K11 Mix is posted below your ears to enjoy.

The latest smash-up from the LA based trio, edIT, OOAH, and Boreta, aka The Glitch Mob, is an infusion of party-starting music. The mixtape is a diffusion of tracks and vocals that are taken apart, chopped and screwed, then put back together with a touch of hip-hop driven beats laced with jagged electro and bass. Presented in partnership with Mishka, the infusions and cuts on these tracks are no small feat. From start to finish, the trio does a great job of driving and steering the half-hour mix. The overall consensus: glitches don’t sound this good. Check out the mix below. Click through for the tracklist and download.
The group will take the stage at Electric Zoo in NYC on September 5th.

We wouldn’t have made it through the year without all you party people, so tonight we’re bringing you some of our favorite DJs from the past year (Shuttle, The Captain and Jubilee), along with a dash of fresh meat (Asian Dan, Spectacal) to collectively form a line-up that we are super excited about.

Over the weekend, the New York Times declared 23 year-old rapper Aubrey Drake Graham the “new face of hip-hop“. From fans to music heavy-hitters like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Diddy and Lil’ Wayne, there is quite a bit of anticipation for the mixtape wunderkind’s upcoming album, Thank Me Later, leaving many to wonder if the artist’s debut can meet expectations to break a million album units in sales in its first week. While we wait for the official release of the album tomorrow, it comes as no surprise that New York based record producer Chi Duly (known for his work with Nappy Roots) has released October’s Very Cold, a mixtape that blends the alternative rock style of Coldplay with the thoughtful and pensive lyrics of Drake. Not surprisingly, these tracks mesh well together – Mick Boogie and Terry Urban’s 2008 mixtape, Viva La Hova, combined Coldplay and Jay-Z. Among our favorites on October’s Very Cold: “Everlost”, “Troubles Over”, “Forever La Vida” and “Money to Fix”.
Tomorrow, Drake will be in New York City at South Street Seaport at 6pm to kick off Paper Magazine’s free Ray-Ban and Havaianas-sponsored Summer concert series with Hanson and Ninjasonik.

This week, Theophilus London debuted the first official music video from his latest effort, I Want You. The seductive video for the mixtape’s title track – London’s second – was directed by longtime pal VaShtie. The grainy black and white quality of the video, shot with a handheld camera at the Chelsea Hotel, has Theophilus London written all over it (look no further than the cover art of his three mixtapes for evidence). Va$htie cites French new wave cinema as inspiration; indeed, the atypical style of “I Want You” is a departure from London’s MTV-ready music video for “Humdrum Town”. A sexy through-the-legs shot evokes memories of Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman in the 1967 classic tale of seduction, The Graduate.
