DJ UMB DROPS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH AGAIN!!!!!

2532784282_abf95b8a1a

My homie,  ‘VINCE THE PRINCE’, posted this item a few months back.

BUT I thought  it might be cool and could do with a repost because for me, it in many ways;

EXEMPLIFIES THE GENERATION BASS EXPERIENCE!

Also it gives you all a good idea as to what’s exciting me most DJ-WISE at the minute.  BUT I WARN YOU, I am very diverse.

So I hope you don’t mind and I hope my homie doesn’t mind too.

So here it is again but this time together with VOLUME 2, which has not been posted B4 :-)

GLOBAL GHETTOTECH VOL 1 & 2  (Mostly improv, both -1 cut & 1st take-PIONEER CDJ 1000 MKII & PIONEER DJM600-Man I need an upgrade, I think)

GRAB VOL1 HERE:

AND VOL 2 HERE:

Will be doing a VOLUME 3 SOON!

WHAT IS GLOBAL GHETTOTECH?

According to Wikipedia, Global Ghettotech is a “an intentionally sardonic term coined by ethnomusicologist Wayne Marshall, describes a loosely-defined aggregate of club and sound system-based music from around the world…….Global ghettotech is not a world music-style celebration of exotic sounds, but DJ mixable hybrids constructed from drum machines and synths available the world over. This music is designed to hit hard on the dancefloor, not background conversation at your local café. These musical genres are inspired by the organ-rattling bass of massive speaker towers, sexually-charged dancers, and fierce (even violent) rivalries between local MCs, DJs and producers”.

BTW WAYNE MARSHALL AKA WAYNE WAX HAS CONFIRMED HIS APPROVAL OF THIS MIX AS BEING INDICATIVE OF HIS PHRASE.. :-)

    Any chance of a tracklist?
