Bringing resonating bass from Arizona’s desert-scape, Phoenix DJ/Producers Pickster One & DJ Melo
have teamed up to deliver a new batch of jaw-dropping Moombahton tracks – the new electronic dance
music sound. Invented by DJ and producer Dave Nada of Nadastrom, this hybrid of Dutch house and
reggaeton that is on fire everywhere from Washington to Israel and Europe, and is getting support
from the likes of Diplo, Laidback Luke, BBC Radio 1's Toddla T in the UK, Skrillex and DJ Chuckie
from the Netherlands,, and was recently featured on National Public Radio (NPR) “All Things Considered”.
Pickster One & Melo have an enviable track record when it comes to moombahton: their first track, ‘Mas Poderoso’
continues to be a favorite among this growing community after appearing on Munchi's ‘Summer Of Moombahton
compilation. Later in 2010 DJ Melo then released a two-disc compilation called ‘The Winter of Moombahton’,
which received massive support from Diplo and Mad Decent. The duo's second collaborative effort, ‘I Can Make You Dance’,
was featured on the ‘Moombahton Massive III’ EP, which was compiled by Brooklyn-based producer Sabo for the SXSW
festival in Austin, TX in 2011. In April of 2011 DJ Melo was featured on the Mad Decent Compilation “Blow Your Head
Vol 2: Dave Nada Presents Moombahton”.
And Now, Pickster and Melo reunite to present ‘Arizonaton’ a seven-track debut LP, which will be available for free
download on Moombahton.com. Arizonaton runs the spectrum of the different
styles of Moombahton - “Fat Booty" and
"Es Dificil" fall in the softer Moombahsoul sub-genre while, “Keep The Dice Rolling” and "Don't Make Me Wait" are
more of the traditional Moombahton sound. "Waistline" fits the Moombahall catagory, and the more aggressive "Going
Out To The Hardcore" fits the popular Moombahcore tag. In addition, a bonus track on the LP is a remix of Arizona
Indie band, Dry River Yacht Club's "Sweaty Sax". This is just another example of the pairs producing ability in the
Moombahton Scene and beyond.
