DISCOPUSSY, an after-hours dance haven that brings mainline house and techno to Fremont East at 512 E Fremont St, has announced a residency for house and techno duo, Gettoblaster, kicking off its four-show series at 10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 7.
With over 87,000 listeners monthly on Spotify, Gettoblaster revisits the fundamentals of house music with a distinct blend of addictive hooks, crisp percussion and room-shaking basslines. The powerhouse has pushed the genre of funky bassline tracks to the future by creating their own sound with heavy influences of Chicago and Detroit’s underground scenes, plus a twist of modern production.
Committed to leading the house music industry, Gettoblaster formed its own label, “We Jack Records,” with the intent to stay true to house music’s traditional warehouse vibe. The label has more than 30 releases and has seen legends like DJ Deeon, DJ Funk, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Zombie Nation and many others. The label has also seen rising performers Andre Salmon, Kid Enigma, Jay Kurmis, Treasure Fingers and more.
Gettoblaster’s dance floor hits have caught the attention of producers and artists including Patrick Topping, The Martinez Brothers, Dennis Ferrer, Simone Dunmore, Solomun, Dixon, Shiba San and more. In 2020, Gettoblaster released their first EP of the year, “The 302,” on Patrick Topping’s label, “Trick,” featuring remixes from Paul Johnson and DJ Haus, along with Topping. Gettoblaster continues to stay on top in the industry with festival announcements and performances lined up around the world this year.
Conceptualized and designed by Corner Bar founder, Ryan Doherty, the centerpiece of DISCOPUSSY is a custom-built disco-octopus. The eight tentacled, articulated beast is made of more than 10,000 laser cut components illuminated by more than 5,000 individually addressable light emitting diodes. Controlled by state-of-the-art LED drivers, the sculptural display boasts refresh rates of well over 60 frames per second. Created by Keegan Olton in collaboration with Future TBD and Building 180, the tentacles present a colorful, visual light experience.
DISCOPUSSY is open from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Thursday – Saturday, and from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday, with a capacity limited to seating only on tables that are separated by six feet, in addition to social distancing protocols on the dance.
