It’s time to start selecting your Summer sounds and Mood Swings has already found the beats that’ll keep his booty shaking all Summer long; Moombahton!
For this summer I have decided that my mood will be 100% percussion and moombah-oriented. Although this season usually sparks up the need in people to listen to nothing but housed-up sambas, my summer will be characterised by a lot less beats-per-minute and a lot more booty shaking rather than hand waving or fancy footwork.
People might appreciate this type of music but be put off by the fact that they can't sing along - it'll probably be some time before moombahton reaches the mainstream outputs. But not to worry! While we wait, why not enjoy some drummed up remixes of songs we all know?
First off, here's a remix by Chong X - a producer hailing from the Czech Republic but based in Peru whom I've come to really appreciate lately. You can check his work out on his Soundcloud page: http://soundcloud.com/chong-x
And here's the remix I was talking about, I've played it a lot lately and I can safely say it's a crowd pleaser:
20 Fingers Ft. Roula - You Gotta Lick it (Chong X remix)
Second in line is this remix of Daft Punk's 'Aerodynamic'. I am a huge Daft Punk fan (obviously) but I gotta say this really works for me:

Third in line, a track to prove that yes, you can shake your junk to a heart-wrenching song.
Adele Set Fire to the Rain
If you like what you're hearing, London's Feral is Kinky has been doing some amazing work with this genre. Check out her interview for Swide here and make sure you catch her upcoming releases!
