Ghettotech Music Description

A style of Electronic Music which originated in Detroit in the late 1990s. Its sound combines elements of the ghetto house style of Chicago with electro, Detroit techno, Miami bass, and UK garage. It is often faster than other dance music styles, and utilizes repetitive, gritty vocals along with fast-paced mixing and turntablism. A style of dancing, known as the jit (akin to Chicago's Juke dance style), is marked by its fast footwork, corresponding to ghettotech's typically quick tempos, which is typically 145 to 160 BPM, with a bassy 4/4 (four-on-the-floor) beat structure.
