Information on the Ghetto Tech Genre

Ghettotech or Detroit club music is a form of electronic dance music originating from Detroit. It combines elements of Chicago's ghetto house with electro, hip hop, techno, and grafts the perceived raunch of Miami Bass as the vocal stamp of the music. It is usually faster than most other dance music genres, at roughly 145 to 170 bpm, and sometimes features pornographic lyrics. As DJ Godfather puts it, "the beats are really gritty, really raw, nothing polished."

The spelling and indeed the use of the word "Ghettotech" is contentious, with many Detroit DJs and artists preferring not to use the term, although Disco D is credited with developing the usage during his days as a teenager on the scene. Other spellings include Ghetto Tech, GetoTek, Ghettotek, and other names include Detroit Bass (sharing the title with Detroit area Electro), Booty Bass (sharing the title with Miami Bass), and Booty Music (an umbrella term under which the genre falls).

Ghettotech was born as a DJing style, inspired by the eclecticism of The Electrifying Mojo and the fast-paced mixing and turntablism of The Wizard, with DJs mixing genres including Miami Bass, Ghetto House, Electro, HipHop and Detroit Techno. The general BPM of the mixing style increased over time, encouraged by the fact that the style was being DJed in titty bars where the DJs jacked up the speed of the original tracks to make the dancers dance faster. This fast mix of different sounds influenced producers who started making tracks around 1994 which welded the styles together.

Ghettotech is an integral part of the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, an annual event. A Detroit Ghettotech style of dancing is called the jit. It is an improvisational dance that mainly centers around the fast movement of the feet but also arms and body movement dating back to the early 1950s jitterbug also known as the black bottom stomp. Chicago's equivalent dance style is Juke where the focus is on the footwork dating back to the late 1980s.
