J PAUL GETTO
The JPG sound is a seamless plenty of contemporary techniques with classic samples of danceable beats and heartfelt emotions that really get the girls in a spin. Though an experienced producer in his own right, it was the coming together at a dinner party in September 2010 that really set JPG off on a path to stardom. With the help of Maurice Tamraz (which was a crucial part of the JPG sound) and Neil Petricone of X-Mix Productions , J Paul Getto mined his own unique vein of sample heavy disco house, creating an impressive body of work in such a short time, releasing tracks like ‘Imma Let You Know’, ‘3000’, and ‘Paris Fried Chicken’ to rapturous receptions everywhere.
JPG started as part of the X-Mix Productions family alongside the likes of Armand van Helden and sometime collaborator and kicking house legend, Todd Terry. As a remixer he is in high demand, re-working the likes of Duck Sauce, DJ Sneak, Joey Negro, Louis La Roche, Treasure Fingers, Roy Davis Jr and many more. One of their biggest remixes of 2012 came in their rework of Will Monotone’s ‘Dem Mai Hoes’, a dazzling production which took his sound to every corner of the globe.
In 2013 and 2014 we saw JPG release tracks like Different Folks & Handle Your Scandal on Dj Mes’ Guesthouse Records, The Getto Life EP on Joey Negro’s Z Records, several remixes for the prestigious Salsoul label on Ultra Records and in November, he shared the stage with Amtrac, Jamie Jones and Anime Edge & Dance at Hard Fest Underground Stage. He was personally asked by Kaskade to be his opener for his Redux show in Boston. He also remixed “Take Your Mind Off It” from Kaskade’s last album.
More recently, he continues to release tracks and remixes for various labels including Jesse Rose’s Play It Down and already has five Top 10 Traxsource tracks in 2016, including two #1’s. He is currently collaborating with upcoming artists and veterans DJs like Bad Boy Bill, Brillstein and Man Without A Clue for upcoming music in 2016.
