Ghetto Tech

It’s not very often I come across a song that makes my jaw hit the floor, but this monster from Billy Kenny & Wongo hits all the right spots. The sound design is to be rivaled by none as swirling sub bass envelops your ears and airy synth pads tantalize the mind. Minimal vocals scattered throughout tie a nice little bow on the formidable package that is sure to be one of the stand out house tunes of Winter 2016. So whatcha waitin’ for…head on over to BeatPort and cop this bad boy right this moment! Purchase HERE.

Our GDD friend and familiar Craig Williams has put in overtime to make a name for himself in the techno-sphere, tallying up releases on Motorik, Nervous, Sweat It Out, NEST (OWSLA) – not to mention hosting numerous production tutorials on his YouTube channel and giving away serious tricks of the trade. His newest release “Believe It” just dropped this week on the Toronto-based imprint BADLQQK, and the Aussie held nothing back on this jackin’ techno heater. Here’s what he had to say about it:

I definitely went for a more minimal feel than before. I had been listening to a load of great classic producers like Robert Hood, cajmere and green velvet to name a few and i think the the house vibe just crept in. The song defiantly developed from choosing a select number of machines in the studio and just jamming out.

Recently, the LA-based house music maestro, Fritz Carlton, hasn’t had the best of luck as his laptop was stolen, but he’s making the most of his situation, turning negatives into positives with music. After dropping “Mohki” on the This Ain’t Bristol’s Even More Selections Compilation, he’s back to roll out the first installment, “Perspective,” of his Free Fritz Tuesdays series, which will bring more of his free tunes on a weekly basis. This new jam is a punchy 808-driven number featuring wonky synth work, a shuffling groove, and a quick rap sample to complete the bass-fueled track. Listen and download it here:

The Germany-based label, This Ain’t Bristol, has set out on a path less taken, as they’ve dedicated their curation to UK house music in a region where techno is king. In just a couple of days, they’ll be rounding out a trilogy of compilations with the release of Even More Selections, which features everyone from the label’s A&R Billy Kenny, to Mark Starr, to Fritz Carlton and several more up-and-coming artists who aim to help shape the future of dance music.

In celebration of the Even More Selections compilation release, we’ve been given the exclusive premiere of one of the tracks included – “Now” by Florida’s Mark Starr and Connecticut’s Lux Groove. Listen below to hear their beefy, ghetto-tech-esque stomper that we’ve been jammin’ to all week.

Check out the rest of Even More Selections after the jump, and pre-order it here, ahead of it’s Friday release.

Over the past three months, we’ve seen quite the hand of remixes dealt by the mysterious guise known as Foreign & Domestic. Blending elements of g-house and ghetto tech, this new project is definitely keeping things fresh.  Today, the track in question is a remix of “Bubblegum” done to grimy ghetto perfection.  Some haunting vox-pitching and a tough bassline are the main attraction, so I’m guessing you’ll be hearing this played out in Miami quite a few times.  Grab the free DL now and look out for more Foreign & Domestic.

Sluggers have bounced onto the scene as one of the best new booty-tech producers out.  I haven’t heard a bad track out of this Miami-based duo, and they continue the hot streak with today’s release.  They set their sights on Aaron Smith and his massive tune “Dancin.” Unlike other remixes we’ve seen that have been very happy-dancey, Sluggers take a harder approach by incorporating a hard bass arrangement and cool tech elements.  Stream it below and be sure to grab your copy on iTunes.
