At this very moment, Gettoblaster is likely to be in a dark overcrowded room somewhere, pounding out their raw breed of dance music to a mob of house and techno heads. More then just DJ’s, this set of tastemakers are leading a movement, raised by the underground and determined to keep it alive. Heavily influenced by the sounds of Chicago and Detroit’s underground scenes, they’re taking it back to the fundamentals – to what made dance music so damn good in the first place. Fully equipped with a never-ending flow of four-on-the-floor beats, Gettoblaster has created their own sound by taking what they’ve been influenced by for years and twisting it with modern day production and pushing the genre of jackin tracks to the future.
When Gettoblaster formed they committed to not letting the industry lead them to where they should go, but rather lead the industry where it should be going. Their own label “We Jack Records” was formed with the intent on staying true to the warehouse vibe. The label is only 30 releases deep and has seen legends like DJ Deeon, DJ Funk, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Zombie Nation and many others. But it has also seen new schoolers like Andre Salmon, Chris Larsin (CA), Kid Enigma, Franklyn Watts, Jay Kurmis, Mason, Missy, Treasure Fingers and others.
These powerhouses stay well-rinsed and consistently charting with their distinct blend of addictive hooks, crisp percussion, and fat, room-shaking basslines. Gettoblaster’s enticing, dance floor heaters have caught the attention of Patrick Topping, The Martinez Brothers, Dennis Ferrer, Simone Dunmore, Solomun, Dixon, Tale of Us, Dave Clarke, Shiba San, Marco Carola, Claptone, Nathan Barato, Carlo Lio and more. Even Mixmag champions their “tough, Jackin’ House sound” with a full-page article introducing them to the world in the UK print edition of the Magazine.
2019 was a great year. They started off the year with a classic “Gat Dat” on Claude Vonstroke’s Dirtybird Records. Followed by the monster single “Dat Booty” on Tchami’s label Confession. Then they kept it going with the Gettoblaster & Friends EP on Shiba San’s Basement Leak Label. The poke through single was Gettoblaster & Chris Larsin (CA) “Bounce Yo Body” featuring DJ Dagwood. With it gaining popularity throughout the year, Defected Records took notice and featured it in the “Defected Most Rated 2020” compilation.
2020 is only just beginning and the first release the have for the year is Gettoblaster & DJ Deeon “The 302” EP on UK’s Patrick Topping’s label “Trick” featuring remixes from Paul Johnson and DJ Haus along with a Patrick Topping Edit. No doubt 2020 will be a great year for the duo, with festival announcements and performances lined up around the world. Make sure you catch these two on a dancefloor near you.
