Chrissy Murderbot’s Year of Mixtapes Week 24: Ghettotech

I’ll let Chrissy sum this one up in his own words

This week I’ve got a tape of Ghettotech, which for you uninitiated folks is a genre of uptempo urban dance music we have here in the Midwest. The music (and the name “ghettotech” itself) originated in Detroit, and is essentially sped-up Detroit techno with a heavy dose of Miami bass music and Chicago ghetto house influence. It’s fast, it’s bass-heavy, it’s got a lot of dirty words—it’s similar to Juke, but there are some key differences that a lot of people overlook: ghettotech tends to stick to either four-on-the-floor style drum patterns or traditional Miami bass electro drum patterns, whereas juke is a lot more all over the place rhythmically; ghettotech makes a lot less use of the tom tom drum as a melodic instrument; and ghettotech tends to be “techier” or more futuristic sounding, whereas juke has a lot more of a pronounced soul, hip hop, and R&B influence. The last few years have seen a lot of music press types failing to understand this distinction, so take note. Anyway, here’s the tape!
