Lurking between the sharp thorns of a cactus plant and 300 feet high clouds of dust in a sandstorm lies the AZ Gunslingaz. A group of young Moombahtonistas from Phoenix Arizona. In an effort to put a southwest stamp on the fast rising Moombahton Scene, DJ/Producer Pickster compiled an EP of edgy and contemporary Moombahton/Moombacore tunes from DJ Melo, Mendez, Sluggo, Riot Earp, and himself. Each producer brings their own Arizona vibe and style to the table, DJ Melo with his latin percussion bass, Mendez and Sluggo with their DNB-Dubstep influenced El Cuco Recordings, Riot Earp with his jump up in your face style, and Pickster with his heavy drum, synthy, big room sound. This is just a snapshot of what's going on in Phoenix right now. Other Moombahtonistas are popping up all over the Arizona scene as you read this. In an effort to kick up dust and bass bins at the same time the Gunslingaz EP presents a Southwestern, desert, gun shootout, party theme. Instead of bullets they use sharp synth lines and deep bass tones in an effort to help define a unique Arizona Moombahton sound. Maybe in the near future you'll see lowriders in Phoenix cruising by bumping bass filled Moombahton tunes instead of oldies, you never know.
