Ghettotech is a form of electronic dance music originating from Detroit. It combines elements of Chicago's ghetto house with electro, hip hop, techno, and grafts the perceived raunch of Miami Bass as the vocal stamp of the music. It is usually faster than most other dance music genres, at roughly 145 to 170 bpm, and features often pornographic lyrics.

The spelling and indeed the use of the word Ghettotech is contentious. Other spellings include Ghetto Tech, GetoTek, Ghettotec, and other names include Detroit Bass (sharing the title with Detroit area Electro), Booty Bass (sharing the title with Miami Bass), Booty Music (an umbrella term to which the genre falls under), Tech, Ghetto, Ghetto Shit or Accelerated Funk.

The Ghettotech style was created by a few DJs and producers mostly working in Detroit, with a strong influence from Miami Bass and continuing influence from Chicago's ghetto house. It has existed in Detroit since approximately 1994.

Some GhettoTech artists are DJ Assault, DJ Godfather, DJ Bam Bam, Ignition Technician, Sole Tech, DJ Nasty, Erik Travis, Disco D, Mr. De', Starski & Clutch, 12 Tech Mob, 313 Bass Mechanics, DJ Omega, DJ Shortstop, The Detroit Grand Pubahs, DJ Funk, DJ Deeon, DJ Nehpets, DJ Slugo and Dump Emergency.
