The deep bass lines slam you like an atomic explosion. And in a matter of seconds, you're intoxicated by heavy hits of moombah.
That's the feeling you'll get Monday nights at Will Call during M1, "the world's first weekly all-moombah party ever."
"We are the only [weekly party] committed to the sound of moombah on the entire planet," claims DJ Jared Cole, who'll be blowing up the dance floor next to Happy Colors and guest DJs.
"People that've attempted to throw one usually mix it with dubstep and trap and can't really say that [they're only moombah] -- they're not."
The party has taken on several names throughout the years, from Toombah Tuesdays at Jazid to Moombahton! Mondays at Grey Area, but "now M1 sums it up as the first moomba party ever," the DJ explains.
"The beat [of moombahton] is a little more sped up than a reggaeton and it's not fast like house music fast or slow like dubstep. It's somewhere right in the middle. Moombahcore is like hardcore moombahton with a more dubstep-y sound to it. It's definitely its own thing and you can't help but dance to it."
Although moombah will be blasting from the stereo till the wee hours of the morning, you can expect a few surprises throughout the night.
"We'll throw in a song or two like Herbie Hancock's 'Rockit' or something that's in the same BPM. [Happy Colors] will throw in house and trap music for, like, five minutes, but he knows we're a moombah party, so he goes right back. I throw a filler and he throws in his creations."
And that's the mission: Experimenting with great music and spreading the moombah word.

"It's ridiculous that I am the only person doing it weekly. The only reason I'm doing it is because I wanna hear it at a club every week and I think people do too," Cole says.
"It's interesting music if they've never heard it. If they have heard it, they'll be like, 'Damn, these DJs are killing it!' It's intoxicating to be in the vibe. You'll get sucked in right away."
