Exclusive vinyl only Moombahton heat! That's right folks, Moombah Fiesta is a VINYL ONLY (sorry digital DJs) compilation series that focuses on the tropical afro-latin side of the Moombahton sound, and they are seriously bringing the heat with this debut volume. This thing is jam packed with upfront bangers and dancefloor shakers from from leading artists and producers in the Moombahton movement, including Lab alum and Sol Selectas label boss Sabo who kicks off the EP with a deep tribal Moombah remix of Javier Estrada's "Guerrero Azteca." Up next is a fiery collab between Dutty Artz's Chief Boima and NYC Que Bajo's Uproot Andy who remix a classic Kenyan tune by Les Wanyika into a heavy Moombah mover. But it doesn't stop there! On the flip, Cousin Cole goes under the Cousin Culo guise for a sure shot Moombah rework of Fela's "Water No Get Enemy", Orion and King Louie (of Austin's Peligrosa crew) flip Ismael Rivera into a feel good Moombah groover. Recommended.
