Ghetto Tech


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.

A preview of our WMC week in Miami to come, we’re proud to premiere the forthcoming single “Pussé” from Toronto duo RYME. Their Pussé/Time 2 Bump EP is due out March 23 on BNR TRAX (sub-label of BoysNoize Records), and will also feature remixes from the likes of Don Rimini, Sinden, and Cosella. Pussé is jackin, ghetto, and energetic – symbolic of the duo’s love for Chicago House, Detroit techno, and Baltimore club for good measure. Listen below, and pick it up next week on BNR TRAX!

Early support: Anna Lunoe, Crookers, Busy P, Digitalism, Jack Master, Junior Sanchez, Proxy, Ben Mono, Parris Mitchell, and more.



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.

Last month, we got an exclusive taste of  Cosella from Thump via an interview and first-listen feature.  Today, we’re proud to bring you the exclusive world premiere of the Canadian producer’s debut EP “In My Roots.”  Released on Sleazy G, this three-track collection of is a welcome addition to any g-house catalogue.  Each track delivers a powerful punch of that big bass Cosella has become known for, yet each brings a little something different to the table.  Enjoy the “In My Roots” EP and keep a lookout for more from this up-and-comer in the near future.

option4 really is a man of the people. In the past 2 months, the Denver-based DJ/producer has churned out top remixes for Sammy Bananas on Fools Gold and Indian Summer on Sweat It Out – not to mention throwing his own festival Cloak & Dagger that erupted the ever-growing dance music scene in the mile high city. His next play? Give back to the fans by releasing a FREE original on local label Night Supply. “You’re ILL” samples everyones favorite verse from Lil B of the Pack, and keeps things ghetto tech rollin with jackin house appeal.
