DMV native Julius Jetson thrives on the exciting forefront of bringing hip-hop and deep house back together. An exemplar of what “Gangster/Ghetto House” should sound like, Jetson has made a name for himself through his excellent remixes of everyone’s old favorite songs. A self-professed hip-hop kid growing up, Jetson reaches back into the fully stocked early to mid-2000s hip-hop nostalgia cabinet and emerges with spectacular reworks of classics like “Candy Shop,” “Lose Control,” and “The Whisper Song.” Jetson discards the original beat and puts in its place the minimalist percussion and driving bass lines of ghetto house, and then he works with and stretches the vocals to the brink of unfamiliarity. The result is spectacular and represents the exciting future possibilities for the young beatsmith.
