MIXTAPE: Mee Mixtape 2012
So yeah, last week I ended my column promising you guys that the next one would have some popular songs that you could sing-along to. Honestly I didn’t have any mixtape in particular in mind at that point. I never do my homework that much in advance. But then, almost out of nowhere, this one fell right onto my lap!
All the way from Colombia’s capital this week we feature DJ Vitola. He’s somehow related to the Llorona Records family, which we already introduced you to on a previous installment of this weekly column, and as you might be able to guess, he’s into the whole moombahton mashup thing.
In this almost hour long mixtape, Vitola replicates a set at a trendy nightclub, playing all the top-40 hits that drunk people love to sing along to (including that annoying Goyte song), but he only does so in moombahtonized versions and original mashups. Fortunately, he moves really fast from song to song so he doesn’t give you time to start hating on them. With the exception of Munchi‘s moombah-anthem “Sandungueo” there are no other Latin music moments throughout the mix. Anyway, you wanted songs that you knew from the radio, so here you go, now you can start chanting with your buddies “toniiiiiight we are yooooooung.”
