Equally representing the house music epicenters of the world, Detroit and Chicago, DJ / production duo Gettoblaster bring a flavor to their music that undoubtedly stems from their upbringing in the starting place of the now global genre. Today, it comes as little surprise that the duo have found their way to Atlanta’s Psycho Disco! label for their new EP titled “Bounce Back / Glock On My Strap.”
Out now, the dynamic twosome flex their genetic disposition to the house genre with two stunning singles to round out the club bound EP. First up, “Bounce Back” sees the pair collaborate with emerging songstress Missy on a nearly six-minute cut of classic vocal house. Moving through the heart-racing builds and funky synth break downs of “Bounce Back,” Gettoblaster then move on to following single “Glock On My Strap.” As gangster as the title would suggest, “Glock On My Strap” goes a little bit tribal, a little bit weirdo house, and all the way club anthem on the hypnotic second single that also features vocals from Missy.
Gettoblaster started back in 2014 and have released an album every year since. Showing their aptitude for house rhythms, the album brandished Gettoblaster’s knowledge of the definitive. At the tail end of 2016, Gettoblaster gave the world a proper education in house with the release of their third album, Chi Til I Die. A quick glance at the track list would be enough to make any house head green with envy as living legends Steve “Silk” Hurley and Marshall Jefferson are just some of the artists featured on the album.
Outside of their infectious catalogue, December 2015 saw the launch of their record label We Jack. Curating a small but powerful catalogue from established players like Bad Boy Bill, DJ Deeon, and DJ Slugo, the imprint holds true to the jackin’ name whether the story is told through the shuffling snares of “Shawty Want That Cake,” the clap-driven “I Need Weed In My Life,” or the distorted mid-range of “Hoes.”
