I’ll admit I thought of moombahton and its offshoots (moombahcore, moombahsoul, moombah-whatever) as a passing fad of electronic music. Innovators like Munchi and Dillon Francis brought moombahton to a new level, then it didn’t grow much from there. But now, after a long plateau, the genre finally gets a kick in the ass as Ooah (of The Glitch Mob) and LoBounce team up to release the Get Primal EP , giving us some moombahton 2.0.
The EP, released yesterday on Glass Air, features some high energy, tribal-stomping moombahton beats. From the chest pounding monkey grunts in Peligrosa to a huge talking bassline in Line Of Fire to the dizzying synth work in Freaks, Get Primal packs an intensely refreshing punch of uniqueness to the genre.
