MIXTAPE: Photo Romance Remezcla Exclusive Mix
An Afro-Parisian DJ by the name of Photo Romance made an exclusive moombahton mixtape just for us. Isn’t that some romance?
Moombahton has gone a long way in a very short time since its inception into the blogosphere and while it still doesn’t get mainstream recognition, it keeps new earning adepts, both sides of the Atlantic, in the global bass scene. It has also diversified into infinite other mini-subgenres with even sillier names (moombahstep, moombahcore, moombahsoul, etc) and unfortunately (for our subject of interest here at Remezcla) many of these strands had almost completely lost any sort of connection to the Latin source that originated moombahton.
Photo Romance covers a lot of these variations on the buzz-worthy moombah-multiverse and yes there’re a handfull of tracks there that will appeal to the Latino crowd (there’s some cumbahton, of course). Anyway, regardless of the portmanteau labels, it’s still a great mix with a lot of dancefloor-igniting potential, so leave your preconceptions behind and give it a try.
