|Biographie-En||A DJ recognized equally for his ability to drop a set of either electro, hip-hop, or booty, DJ Godfather eventually reached the point in the late '90s where he could integrate each of these often clashing sounds into the same set, a quickly mixed collage of bass-heavy beats. In addition to his role as a mind-blowing DJ unwilling to stick with conventional techniques, Godfather also managed to release a substantial canon of work on the Twilight 76 label and its spin-off, Databass, which also illustrated his diverse taste in bass music. Of course, it took several years for him to merge these styles together in a seamless manner, as he often paraded as either a hip-hop, electro, or booty DJ, depending on his audience. His first mix CD, Da Bomb, Vol. 1, stands as a perfect example of how he suddenly shifts from bass music to hip-hop near the conclusion of the mix as if he were two different DJs. Yet this ability to morph into whatever rocked the given crowd earned him a cult following in Detroit, where he would often cater to both the hip-hop and rave communities. |
As the '90s came to a close, Godfather began to evolve into his signature style as a producer of what was then known as booty music -- bass-heavy electro tainted with sleazy ideology and hip-hop accessibility -- scoring a huge anthem with "Player Haters in This House," which he stretched out into a booty-themed album of the same name. Yet at the same time that he began churning out booty tracks on Databass he was also releasing purist electro records on Twilight 76. During this same time, another Detroit DJ/producer, DJ Assault, was doing similar work, marrying techno with booty music and releasing numerous records similar to Godfather's "Player Haters in This House." By the time Godfather released Da Bomb, Vol. 3, he finally had a healthy palette of techno-flavored booty tracks to work with thanks to Assault and was able to navigate his way through numerous musical styles seamlessly -- electro, bass, booty, hip-hop, and jungle -- creating a collage of sounds referred to by many as ghettotech. As the '90s drew to a close he continued this synthesis, releasing additional EPs on Twilight 76 and Databass while further perfecting his unparalleled DJing techniques.
