Ricky Vaughn Drops Final “Art Of Moombahton” Mix and Announces Upcoming EP
I know, I know it feels like Spring just refuses to show its pretty little face doesn’t it? I mean by now Winter should have come and gone but we’ve been plagued by a few pesky snow flurries and some biting wind gusts. With festival season well and truly underway, it’s hard to get yourself in the mood to shake your tail feather when you’re still rocking boots, scarves and your ugliest Christmas sweater. Luckily moombahton pioneer Ricky Vaughn is here to help ease away those frigid aches and pains with his latest sweltering “Art of Moombahton” mix which just dropped for free on Monday.
This fifth and final installation to Vaughn’s critically acclaimed series of mixes is just what you need to get yourself in the perfect mindset to greet the warm weather. This incredibly infectious mix is guaranteed to get you on your feet and dancing no matter where you are. Seriously you can forget going to the gym this week, just throw this on your speakers and you’ll be ready to hit the beach in no time. This mix is 45+ minutes of scintillating 110 BPM grooves that will turn your dorm room, school library or subway car into a dance floor.
Packed with 14 unreleased and completely original tracks, Rick’s “Art of Moombahton” is the perfect way to cap off such a dope series of mixes. The Brooklyn based DJ and producer perfectly captures the beauty of this ever exciting and evolving genre. With a distinct international vibe throughout the mix, Ricky speaks to a wide array of listeners both domestic and abroad proving that moombahton has grown beyond the shores and nightclubs of the U.S. Ricky has pulled together some very fresh talent to work with on this final mix including Maxx & EJ, Otis Clapp, and Jon Kwest, Ackeejuice Rockers, Daron Vande, and Michele Wylen. These are definitely some up-and-comers you should look out for.
By mixing silky smooth transitions with adrenaline fueled drops and conveying the versatility and soul of moombahton in this 47 minute set, Ricky Vaughn has just released the first must have mix of the year.
