Lately I’ve made a point to write about things that are truly interesting in the moombahton world. With all honesty, larger blogs that cover a larger swath of genres have swooped in and now are able to entice moombahton artists to give them big exclusives, without having contributed to the movement or without any real understanding of it’s goals. However, I’m not upset because moombahton doesn’t want a blog post, it wants the world. Today’s article is dedicated to two artists who are co-ordinating the worldwide takeover in their own, massively talented ways.
Steve Narvaez is one half of the talented indie group, The Fire and Reason. Both Steve and the lead singer for the Fire and Reason, Bella, have both provided lyrics for moombahton songs you are likely familiar with. In their former lives however, they were really making some noise, winning awards like the NewNowNext “Brink of Fame” award which had previously gone to Lady Gaga (other nominees included Sam Sparrow, Lykke Li and LMFAO). Larry T has done remixes for the Fire and Reason. Are you starting to see why I am getting excited?
Well, that was then and this is now and Steve Narvaez is now working on a project called The R.O.A.R. He first showed up on our radar at Moomba+ when we featured the massively infectious track entitled The R.O.A.R. “Emotion 32″ Chooky Remix. Here is a link to that article. http://www.moombaplus.com/2012/12/11/the-r-o-a-r-emotion-32-chooky-remix-free-download/
The point of today’s article is to begin previewing The R.O.A.R.’s “Touchdown” release and do we have a treat for the Moomba+ readers. This weekend, Steve and the incredibly talented videographer, Ellen Frances (www.ellenfrances.com), were on site shooting the video for “Touchdown” and we have an exclusive teaser for you. Check T ROAR the Lion and get excited for this massive release on Rot10 Musik. I’m here to tell you your feet won’t touch the ground.
