A James Brown sample hasn’t had to tell anyone in the know in our favorite tropical genre that DJ Melo was a star. The Phoenix, Arizona native has paced moombahton every step of the way. However, with his latest Think 2wice records release, the Star Time EP (available from Amazon, Juno Download and Beatport), he finally makes the move to being a leader of the pack. Proving that steady growth and accomplishment is always the most preferred method of success, the Arizona gunslinger fires a shot as broad as it is deep into the sky, signaling the arrival of the next world renowned moombahtonista. Melo’s command of traditional Latin rhythms mixes with a next level understanding of bass for a moombahton style that combines the depth and bombast that have attracted most ears to the movement. In six original tracks and three top tier remixes, Melo makes a dominant statement in the underground’s most populist sound of the moment.

Lurking between the sharp thorns of a cactus plant and 300 feet high clouds of dust in a sandstorm lies the AZ Gunslingaz. A group of young Moombahtonistas from Phoenix Arizona. In an effort to put a southwest stamp on the fast rising Moombahton Scene, DJ/Producer Pickster compiled an EP of edgy and contemporary Moombahton/Moombacore tunes from DJ Melo, Mendez, Sluggo, Riot Earp, and himself. Each producer brings their own Arizona vibe and style to the table, DJ Melo with his latin percussion bass, Mendez and Sluggo with their DNB-Dubstep influenced El Cuco Recordings, Riot Earp with his jump up in your face style, and Pickster with his heavy drum, synthy, big room sound. This is just a snapshot of what’s going on in Phoenix right now. Other Moombahtonistas are popping up all over the Arizona scene as you read this. In an effort to kick up dust and bass bins at the same time the Gunslingaz EP presents a Southwestern, desert, gun shootout, party theme. Instead of bullets they use sharp synth lines and deep bass tones in an effort to help define a unique Arizona Moombahton sound. Maybe in the near future you’ll see lowriders in Phoenix cruising by bumping bass filled Moombahton tunes instead of oldies, you never know.

I was recently Featured on Jon Kwest’s new Moombahton Compilation. The theme of the project is taking old UK Hardcore tunes from the early 90′s and twisting them into a Moombahton Tune. Lot’s of really dope songs on this comp including a few tunes from Arizonaton producers DJ Melo, Nate Metro and Steve Konkel.

My tune was a Remix of Nate Metro & Avonlea’s re-make of the Awsome 3′s classic “Don’t Go”

More from Jon Kwest himself:
I was around to hear these originals when they dropped, some of which even made the radio in Baltimore. I had an older sister who listened to house music and I recognized, even then, that most of the songs were just two existing popular house/techno records sped up with a Simon Harris break over it and i loved it! Not to say I didn’t love the original tunes, but something about just snatching something and making it new always appealed to me.
There are a lot of parallels between UK Hardcore and Moombahton. Then they sped it up, now we slow it down. Some people hated it when they first heard it, then grew to love it. It was, and still is, all about a good nasty time!
I can’t tell you how proud I am of this project. Despite their busy schedules, everyone really came through and showed their ass!

IF you are unfamiliar with the new innovative sound of Moombahton. Please do your research now. (Moombahton – wikipedia) Rotterdam, Netherlands producer Munchi is doing his best to help spread the word of this new genre of music as well as help pioneer it into new directions as this genre is not yet a year in age. Moombahton is moving so fast it is hard to even keep up. Producer Munchi has complied a “Past” and “Future” compilation of some of the first tracks that came around to help push the new genre, as well as a “Future” compilation of songs Munchi has picked out to showcase directions the fast moving genre is heading towards.
Myself (Pickster One) & DJ Melo came together to make an original Moombahton track called, “Mas Poderoso” translation: More Powerful. DJ Melo has another track on the “Past” disc called Sandro Silva – Told Ya (Melo Moombahton Edit. Also featured on this compilation is 2 other Arizona based producers. DJ Epidemic and his “Ravaged Toadstool Girls”. And producer Moombahtron A.K.A. Riot Earp with his “Space Runner”. It’s safe to say Arizona is all over this compilation, and it feals good.
