[In our world, it's ALWAYS Moombahton Monday, and so we're serving it up this week with 5 daily doses! Our growing community is exploding with fresh faces and mad skills, for which recognition should given in extensive amounts! Every day for 5 days we will be giving a shout-out to emerging tropical bass/moombahton producers who may be well recognized within this VIRAL scene, but perhaps not across the board. ¡Dale Moombahton!]
There really is no end to our string of recognition, as we dish out praise to our moombahton idols weekly! However, in this last dealt serving of ¡Dale!, there really is no better way to wrap it up than to shine a well deserved light on one of the biggest supporters of this movement: Viciouz Viv.
Hailing from San Antonio, TX, this chica is much more than meets the eye; and what meets the eye is a very gorgeous girl that you would not expect to kill behind the decks! Spending all her free time blogging about moombahton producers, and digging up some of the most under-the-radar artists so as to promote them within her mixes, Viv’s truest goal is to ensure attention is given where it’s due, and that the moombahton movement is pushed as far forward as possible.
Coming from a Spanish background, rich in culture, all the music Viciouz Viv touches flows flawlessly together to form a storm of refreshing Latin beats and tropical bass; our favorite brand of moombah! If the artistry of her DJing skills are any hint to her fined-tuned prowess of her production pieces, then I know what she’ll be dishing out in the future will be explosive, and put her in top tier position as the moombah Queen! After all, with a support system like Chris Parson/Run DMT, Josh LeDoom , King Louie, and Orion Garcia/Peligrosa (huge players in holding down the moombah front in TX), what else would you expect? Nothing less than fiery passion and an undeniable drive to succeed.
Transforming the habits she had growing up of composing mixed cassette tapes, to putting idea-to-software and production, it’s no wonder that DJing came naturally to Viv as an adult. Having recently completed one of her first edits, she was generous enough to provide it (for free download!), along with a hard to find mix we all might have missed on one of the many times she was showcased on Moombah+ Radio. As usual, her mix promotes up and coming producers, and this one highlights in particular one Mixster favorite: ETC!ETC!. Hone your impeccable ninja listening skills as a few unreleased, and unmentioned, tracks are dropped!
If you live in San Antonio, or close by, make sure to catch this beautiful lady while she mixes up the cumbiaton and tropical bass at one of Texas’ swankiest places, during her residency, Ivy Rooftop (also frequented by LeDoom)!

As a growing community, a family, and an altogether movement, we are constantly pushing the envelope to ensure this scene goes global. Having beat this point to a pulp, the beauty of moombahton lies in its ability to be morphed into a million different styles and interpretations, allowing us to infiltrate many genres; and what in the end will ensure that it will be transferred widespread to a larger audience. Producers, DJ’s, photographers, promoters, videographers; they’re all essential in making this genre run rampant across the board. And to think it spiraled out by accident!
