BY VONYX (soundcloud.com/mikawvawn) | Moombahton Massive: Nadastrom & Sabo
Being from DC you get a hefty dose of moombahton. High school parties are often catered to the music of high-pitched synth squeals and dudes howling along in snapbacks. If you go out dancing, the best club in DC, U Street Music Hall, is owned by Tittsworth — a moombahton heavyweight. While moombahton may not be my favorite, it’s not often that city exports much besides politicians and dysfunctional sports teams. So big ups, DC.
Nadastrom is a duo consisting of moombahton creator Dave Nada and his partner, Matt Nordstrom. Their scorchingly massive moombahton tracks are played all over festivals in the US and abroad. With releases on Diplo’s Mad Decent label, as well as Fool’s Gold, they’re the pioneers of moombahton’s commercial success. Well at home with the bangin’ sound system and just-the-music attitude of Output, this show should terrorize eardrums.
Thurs., Aug. 24. At Output (74 Wythe Ave., btw. N. 11th & 12th Sts., Brooklyn). Doors at 10. Tickets are $18. Buy online at ticketfly.com. Info: outputclub.com.
