BOMB THE STEREO
Once a D.C.-based Baltimore Club DJ best known for remixing tracks like Waka Flocka Flame’s “No Hands,” Dave Nada left the DMV on the strength of Moombahton, the fusion dance genre he stumbled upon when he slowed Dutch house to reggaeton tempos in order to better rock a party for his younger cousin. More than three years later, the genre is only getting bigger, and the recent Moombahton Forever compilation (to which Nada and his DJ partner Matt Nordstrom contributed the opening track) stands out as one of its strongest full-length releases. Tonight, it will set aside all sorts of bass-heavy Latin musics when its founder headlines an event that features, among others, Bomba Estereo’s Li Saumet, Que Bajo’s Uproot Andy, and Geko Jones.
