Ghettotech (also known as Detroit bass or booty bass) is a genre of electronic music originating from Detroit and Chicago. It combines elements of Chicago's ghetto house with electro, techno and UK garage. It features four-on-the-floor rhythms and is usually faster than most other dance music genres, at roughly 145 to 170 bpm, and sometimes features pornographic lyrics. As DJ Godfather puts it, "the beats are really gritty, really raw, nothing polished."
Ghettotech was born as a DJing style, inspired by the eclecticism of The Electrifying Mojo and the fast-paced mixing and turntablism of The Wizard, with DJs mixing genres including jungle, ghetto house, hip hop, R&B, electro and Detroit techno. The general BPM of the music's mixing style increases over time.
