Databass US

The compound for one of Detroit’s most respected ghetto tech dons, DJ Godfather, Databass’ second coming has arrived. Boasting a catalogue that supported an early run of releases from DJs Funk, Assault, Deon and Sluggo, Databass has since turned a freshly tapped source for new DJ Godfather material. A true OG in the art of footwork, juke, electro and straight up ghetto tech, Godfather’s Electro Beats For Freaks album is a standout highlight, next to sleeper hits lile “Smoke In Da Air”, “Jit or Die”, “Shut The Fuck Up” and “Keep Your Name Out My Mouth”. Home to the sounds of Sheefy McFly, Starski & Clutch and Erik Travis too - Detroit be in the building.

The Killshot EP
The Killshot - (3:36) 145 BPM Hot
Funk For The Trunk - (5:05) 140 BPM
Subterranean Tech Beat - (3:05) 145 BPM
Review: Following on from a series of diverse, at times pop-leaning releases, DJ Godfather goes back to his Detroit roots on Killshot. The title track is a frenetic piece of high-tech jazz, with dramatic chords and strings swooping in over a frenetic metallic rhythm. "Funk For The Trunk" is a killer electro track, with Godfather fusing splurging acid with a menacing bass and an angular rhythm. The sum of these parts is an uncompromising but funky workout. And Godfather remains in similar territory for "Subterranean Tech Beat". Based on a barrelling groove, its high frequency tones and relentless percussion prime it for peak-time use.

Review: Another week, another DJ Godfather release. The veteran Detroit producer is in a creative purple patch right now, and That Booty is a reminder of the range and depth of his sound. It moves from the title track's primal ghetto tech swing -and Lil Mz 313's suggestive vocals - to the soulful, R&B-tinged groove of "Till It's All Gone". It too features a vocalist - in this instance it's Ricky Burns's seductive tones. Godfather delivers a reflective interlude in the shape of "Footwerkz". However, it's only a temporary pause and soon enough, he bounces back with the jacking, vocal-tinged ghetto of "Not Me" and "Smokin' Up Yo Weed".

Review: DJ Godfather is in the middle of a creative purple patch, and Hypnotized is the latest in a series of releases from the Detroit artist. The title track has a pop sensibility, thanks to the use of a catchy, vocoder vocal. Looped over rolling breaks, it has the potential to be a hit. In contrast, "Table Terrorist", available here in two versions, sees Godfather indulge his hip-hop leanings. Call and response vocals vie with turntablist scratches and cuts for the listener's attention. Of course, the sound of ghetto is never too far away on a Godfather release. In this instance, it comes in the form of the high-octane "Damn It's Fat", which features Ricky Burns' captivating rhymes.

Review: DJ Godfather has released a slew of material recently, and on his latest EP, he takes aim at a particular demographic within the DJ community. Hooking up with rapper Goodmoney G100, the title track calls out his peers who 'stand in the booth, pressing sync buttons'. Realised against the backdrop of a bruising electro funk rhythm, it's a compelling call out of modern DJ culture. On "Damage Control", the storied Detroit producer shows a deeper side - playing out over a robust bass, mysterious synths call to mind Drexciyan mystique. In contrast, "Down Woodward Avenue" sees him stay in an esoteric place, but this time the focus is on chord-heavy techno. "Count Back" is classic Godfather electro, with speak and spell vocals and otherworldly tones playing out over a frenetic rhythm.

Review: DJ Godfather has always gone his own way, and this EP is no exception. The title track serves up a more dystopian take on his trademark sound as he invites the listener on a journey through his hometown. Powered by crisp drums and eerie synths, the track's centrepiece is a foreboding vocal. In contrast, there's the jittery ghetto tech of "Godfather L.I.V.E.", while on "She Gettin' Hits", he presents another side. Underpinned by a throbbing, ebm-style groove, it features Goodmoney G100 delivering an insistent rap. Returning to his roots, Godfather closes out the release with the old school Detroit electro of "That Street Beat".

Review: Detroit electro icon DJ Godfather returns this week with the latest release on his ever reliable Databass imprint. "Hold Up" is next in a series of 11 EPs and sees him collaborate with Chicago booty bass pioneer DJ Deeon. This is the guy who laid down the foundations for what Godfather would soon expand upon with his explorations in the 'ghettotech' sound. Needless to say, the results make for one seriously down and dirty dancefloor workout. Elsewhere, the hi-tech soul beats of "Let's Talk Some Jit" equally satisfies, as does the emotive mood music of "Shake Them" and the in-your-face bass attack of closing cut "Squo?"

Review: It's great to see Detroit pioneer DJ Godfather back releasing music regularly. Hot on the heels of It's Ghetto Tech, he drops this new, diverse release. The title track is a dark, stepping electro roller. Featuring an insistent synth riff, grinding bass and deft hip-hop scratches, it's less frenetic than Godfather's typical material, but no less funky. "Can't C Me" sees him follow a similar approach, with falsetto vocals added to the mix. Godfather reverts to his trademark ghetto tech sound for "Bass Drop". Featuring Lil Mz 313, the interplay between jittery rhythm and call-and-response vocal are irresistible. Changing tact again, "Assassin On The Decks" resounds to melodic piano lines and warbling acid swirls.

It's Ghetto Tech (Chapter 5 - extended instrumental) - (2:14) 145 BPM
Review: Styles and fads may come and go, but thankfully DJ Godfather remains a constant. He has been releasing high-paced dance music for almost 30 years, and he remains at the forefront of a sound he has pioneered. The title track is a frenetic banger, based on all the usual Godfather elements - high-pace electro drums, vocals loops chopped to pieces and a primal low end. "Ghetto Tech" also features Dan Diamond riffing about what the sound entails. The release boasts some fine instrumental versions. The "Chapter 1" take is led by dramatic ominous stabs and nagging percussion, while the second "Chapter" focuses more on bleepy electro influences. However, it's "Chapter 4", in all its primal rhythm, sub-bass glory that really capture the essence of DJ Godfather, and by extension, the ghetto tech sound.

Other highlights include the brooding electro bass of "You Can't Stop This", the proper 313 state of mind on "East Side - West Side" (feat Goodmoney G100) which is something more familiar of the DJ Godfather's style, and the hi-tech computer funk of "Freq Me".

It's his fifth long player which does exactly what it says on the tin, featuring 16 tracks of pure form electro executed by one of the Motor City's most distinguished engineers. From the robo-futurist groove of "TH3Y'V3 ARR1V3D", moving into the most dystopian of funk on "ATTACK F1R5T", re-programming another sci-fi bass attack on "R3P0PULAT3" and towards the end he makes contact - with the deep space alien transmission of "TH3 AFT3R 3FF3CT".

Turning toward some Miami bass, beats and style in "Wooooo!" - with its stuttering horns, ruff vocal chants and skipping rhythms - "Only One City" ups the tempo for a hybrid rave, electro and dub techno number that sits next to something more percussive and dank in "Nights At The Packard". And for your tongue in cheek ghetto track, as promised, "Wack DJ" will get those bottoms ends working thanks to an undeniable 808 rhythm section.

Review: DJ Godfather rains down a chunk more of lightning bolt dancefloor music with this Loud Mouth EP, taking in tips from Pharoahe Monch in a cheeky "Godzilla 2020 (Hornstrumental)" for the show stealing DJs out there. Keeping it on a slightly humorous tip still is the riff heavy "Booty Funk" that loops its guitars hard next to some bassline house in "Loud Mouth (feat Goodmoney G100)". But really, for the players out there, this EP is all about "Shut The Fuck Up (feat King Saadi)" - a rude, fun and playful G-house number with lyrics to boot!

Review: DJ Godfather with the bizness once again offering up a point and place where the tempos of house, techno and electro can be bridged in a single mix with the BPMs of footwork, juke and jungle. Godfather flexes between 125-145 BPMs in two versions of "Make That Ass Go BOOM", with your stable tempo of course found in the original mix kept at a straight 145. Get your more tongue in cheek, Dirty Bird-like club numbers from "Up All Night (feat Christina Chriss)" next to the straight up, frenetic, and deep Detroit styled clap-track "D3T-313".

Review: DJ Godfather of late is going from strength to strength with each release, turning in a new single for his Databass label with the tongue in cheek Keep My Name Out Your Mouth - aka "Certified Freak Hoe". Featuring looped vocals from King Saadi, the Godfather delivers a track that lands somewhere between a Dirtybird and Dance Mania production with its playful basslines, scandalous vocals, space pongs and jacking snare rolls. Given two alternative tempos to play and alternate, this is a DJ-centric release for da klub.

Review: Following the release of the epic 44-track Electro Beats For Freaks album of 2020, DJ Godfather returns with a EP you can't refuse. Show Some Respect sees the Detroit bass mechanic turn in three-and-a-half new numbers in the relaxed yet deep "Sunday Morning Spliff" alongside the New York noise and post punk sounds of "These Strippers" - get your narrative content from the Dan Diamond version. The title track - centralised around a badass claptrack - angles itself toward the new techno sound of Detroit, aka Electro.

Review: Here's a meeting of great electro producers, as DJ Godfather hosts a collaboration with K-1 aka Keith Tucker on his Databass label. "Version 1" of the title track is a seamless collaboration be-tween these two creative minds, with Godfather's hip-hop scratching and bass-heavy rhythm combined with Tucker's robotic vocals and atmospheric but chilling synths. While the dub take follows a similar trajectory, albeit without the vocals, 'Version 2' sees the pair take a trip to electro's outer limits with the original vocals sent into a robotic vortex, supported by a robust, steely rhythm. It's an inspired release from the sound's most distinctive artists.

Review: It's hard to believe that after all these years one of the founding forces in Detroit ghetto tech is only now, in 2020, releasing his debut album. Well...at 44 tracks large, maybe it's been worth the wait...coming from a man who back in the day helped set up Twilight 76 that released classics from the likes of DJs Assault, Deon and Slugo to Dave Clarke and Todd Osborne. More recently Godfather relaunched his Databass label which he now champions with an epic, straight-shootin' and unpretentious full time opus that takes in every angle of Detroit ghetto tech, be it the more contemporary, breakbeat and footwork sounds of "Smoke In The Air" to the gnarilier electro vibes of "The D". Featuring crewdem like Goodmoney G100, King Saadi, Lil Mz 313 and Parhouse to Dan Diamond in "These Strippers", Electro Beats For Freaks is bold music for bold times, but fresh as fuck.

Review: DJ Godfather back in the haus with the irrefutable Jit Or Die EP with the ghetto tech sounds of Jit outta Detroit. An absolute legend, a Godfather, of Detroit's ghetto house, electro and 808 sound, it's been the last two years that we've seen a dynamic resurgence from the artist, firing in a hot streak of digital only action to the shelves over the past two years. Following Sheefy Mcfly's Jittin Aint Dead EP for Databass, DJ Godfather keeps the Detroit-born movement kicking with two tracks of frenetic rhythms and mad drums that skirt between hi-nrg ghetto house ("Jit Like Me") to the cut up vocals and footwork in "Jit Or Die". Bonus points for the rude boy Parkhouse acapella.

Review: DJ Godfather is unlikely to ever win an award for the most politically correct track titles, but as this release demonstrates, he remains one of the most entertaining ghetto producers. Like all of his career highlights, "Get Girl" is remarkably uncomplicated but highly effective. Underpinned by rolling snares and a primal, jacking rhythm, it features an unknown female vocalist intoning the track's title. It's a similar situation on "Bitch Get Off Me", where Parkhouse utters the title's command over a rudimentary groove and repetitive house organ riff. However, neither can compare to the title track, where Godfather teams up with vocalist Good Money for a trip into high-octane, lo-fi ghetto funk.

Review: When we saw another release had dropped from the Databass US catalogue we couldn't wait to get stuck in, especially with DJ Godfather at the production helm. We begin our venture with 'Elektro Rok', a somewhat nostalgic instrumental track, bringing together synthetic electric guitars and 8bitty riffs. It all goes very Detroit at the next turn with the skippy drum work and unusual percussive rolls of 'They Wanna See My Footwork', before we finish up the EP on 'The D'. This one is an old school electro roller, driven by its siren like lead synthesis and extremely clean drum designs, signing the EP out in style.
