With 25 years of experience under his belt, legendary house producer Todd Terry knows how to kick out an anthem, and his newest track, Tee’s Ghetto Blaster, is no exception.
Terry’s latest is an example of how great house music can be timeless–this track could easily have been a dancefloor hit 20 years ago, and yet it still sounds fresh. The key is simplicity, with simple drum patterns that seem richly complex through clever use of shuffle, tiny bass stabs that fill the sonic spectrum through careful use of sound design and reverb, and a very ballsy mixing style that almost blows you away through expert use of compression and EQ. It’s the epitome of the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to house, and one that should see tracks like this work just as well in another 20 years.
Tee’s Ghetto Blaster is out now on Terry’s own Inhouse label.
