Every Monday this summer Velvet Lounge hosted the best (feel free to discuss in comments-ed) party in town: Dave Nada’s Moombahton Marathon Mondays. In case you have (somehow, while living under several rocks) not heard, Moombahton is Dave’s invention and  is essentially Dutch house screwed down to sound like reggaeton’s weird little cousin. It made EVERYONE go completely nuts this summer (see: Diplo dropping it into his set at Electric Zoo Festival or this FADER interview with Dave-ed) but for the course of the season, every DJ, band and DJ/Band groupie in town packed into Velvet to dance to it with Dave spinning.

Now that Dave is gone onto bigger things in LA, we figured we’d run these photos Ben’s been snapping up all summer. If this was a facebook post, the tag feature would go nuts right about now.

We’ll miss you Dave.
