The way the new, sleepy backbeats of trap music fuse with high-charged, intense songs as such a perfect-fitting backbone is…nothing short of remarkable. Songs played to death (I’m thinking Levels) are reinvented into epic lounge backdrop; you’re guaranteed to find yourself starting to nod along the second these beautiful, beautiful reworks pop on. Though I hate to do so, the first song I’m posting is a radio rip; can’t all be as lucky as miss Annie Mac over on the BBC… But also check out the Flux and La Roux to follow, and you’ll really get knocked off your feet…

★ Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch – Sweet Nothing (Diplo & Grandtheft Trapstyle Remix)
♬ Flux Pavilion – I Can’t Stop (Sleepy Tom Remix)
★ La Roux – In For The Kill (DJ Slinks Get Trappy Remix)

NB: Please welcome miz GLaydee to the hard-syncing team!

In 2007, Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom merged in an amazing allegiance that came to be known as producer-duo Nadastrom. With their wildly-popular Moombahton Massive events each month at the local U Street Music Hall, these moombah afiociandos have earned their keep. This track made the rounds this festival season, but its tribal vocals and hypnotic drop make me twerk it to the floor everytime.

★ Nadastrom – I!!

More moombah after the jump…
