D.O.D – Ghetto [Wall Recordings]
WALL Recordings keeps on rolling out the high energy jams this summer, with the latest being a cut from the mighty D.O.D — the fast-rising producer who counts fans including Axwell, Steve Angello, Calvin Harris, Tiësto and of course Afrojack to his name.
Making his return to WALL with Ghetto, a track that oozes his signature #FutureJack sound, D.O.D demonstrates that his output shows no signs of faltering. Galloping beats urge the track forward with filtered down off-beat bass and splashes of heavily-reverbed FX building up the tension. An infectious rap vocal loop rises in tandem with monotone synth drones, with the mother of all builds pumping the track up until the feisty drop is unleashed.
There’s little in the way of melody, and none is needed when the groove is this infectious and propulsive. With an old-skool, tech-trance/hard house feel underpinning its hip-shaking rhythms, it’s one for dancefloors who like their beats rolling and chunky.
D.O.D has previously released on many of the world’s biggest electronic labels, including Spinnin’ Records, Fool’s Gold, Fly Eye, DOORN Recordings, Mad Decent, Axtone and Size. It’s been a busy summer for D.O.D, playing major festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival and Balaton Sound, with upcoming dates in Japan and at Mint Festival in the UK.
