Ghetto house

Home | Up


Ghetto house or booty house is a type of Chicago House which started being recognised in its own right from around 1994 onwards. It features minimal 808 and 909 drum machine-driven tracks, and sometimes sexually explicit lyrics.

Using the template of classic Chicago House music (primarily, Percolator by Cajmere), and adding the smut perceived by casual fans of Miami Bass, it is has usually been made on very minimal equipment with little or no effects. It usually features a "4-to-the-floor" kick drum (full sounding, but not too long or distorted) along with Roland 808 and 909 synthesised tom-tom sounds, minimal use of analogue synths, and short, slightly dirty sounding (both sonically and lyrically) vocal samples, often repeated in various ways. Also common are 808 and 909 clap sounds, and full "rapped" verses and choruses.
