From Belfast via East London GHSTGHSTGHST just wants to make you dance. Originally a bass music DJ/producer, they wouldn’t know how to keep chin strokers happy even if they wanted to. Kettema & Patrick Topping was the gateway drug for GHSTGHSTGHST to form a unique brand of rave, jungle and trance influenced Party Techno. While new to the scene, GHSTGHSTGHST’s music has received strong radio support from Jaguar (Radio 1 Dance), Ben Malone (Kiss FM), key support from tastemakers on Rinse FM (Emerald) and internationally from 5FM. (South Africa), Triple J (Australia). With spins from the likes of Hannah Laing, Airwolf Paradise, Emerald, Mincy, Viviana Casanova, James Hype, Tita Lau, GHSTGHSTGHST’s music is found on the USB sticks of the most up-and-coming and up-and-coming DJs. With GHSTGHSTGHST’s latest release, Sound Of My Beat (Stereohype), breaking into the top 30 of Beatport’s main techno chart, they have attracted interest from record labels with music to come in Hardcore Energy, Vassnova Music and Another Rhythm, to name just a few.
Now wanting to remain anonymous to let the music do the talking, Kettema and Patrick Topping were the front door for GHSTGHSTGHST to form a unique brand of rave, jungle and trance-influenced techno party with recent releases ‘Spread Love’ and ‘ Maria Wants Hugs’ doing the rounds
Now the incognito producer is back with his new single ‘Beatdown’, setting the pace for the new year after early turns from Solomun, Sarah Story, Oliver Heldens and Jaguar. This work manages to provide introspection, an absorbing twilight energy and light, and that closes a record that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice. The more the record is listened to, the more difficult it is to locate it in a specific geographical location. His music seems to never solidify, to be a flow of sounds and impressions that never seem to remain fixed in place or memory, like a perfume or a quick vision of a body in motion, until it postulates as one of the true future values of tame and lustrous electronics.
