DJ Assault is known chiefly for his contributions to ghettotech, Detroit’s own brand of high-BPM bass music. Briefly stated, ghettotech was the sound of Miami bass infiltrating Detroit techno. It was a welcome pairing, too – traditional Detroit techno’s austere vibe was part of its appeal, but it took itself a bit seriously, tiptoeing along the line between deliberate and effete. Miami bass, built on 808 kicks, springy bass lines, and mega-raunchy lyrics, was dumb-out booty music. Ghettotech was a near-perfect hybrid, marrying Miami’s raw levity to Detroit’s high production standards.
