Second Weekend June 29 - July 2
In an age where the realms of electronic music have become completely saturated, true musical integrity and originality are fast becoming the key indicators of success. GTA aka ‘Good Times Ahead’ have these characteristics in abundance, and at the mere age of just twenty-five and in the space of only a few prolific years, the Miami-born DJs/Producers have managed to build nothing short of a remarkable musical empire.
Paving the way, and honing in on their unprecedented mission statement of ‘Death To Genres’, the duo have flexed their productions skills and displayed their range in churning out records spanning the likes of: big room, trap, future bass, hip hop, and everything in between.
Natural born performers from day one, their innate ability behind the decks has seen them stun some of the most esteemed festivals around the globe, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Made In America, Tomorrowland and many more. On top of headlining their own tours, a 2016 residency at Hakkasan Vegas, joining Rihanna on her 'Diamonds World Tour’ and a demanding nonstop touring schedule at some of the world’s most iconic nightclubs, it’s clear to see that despite GTA’s wild, unpredictable sets, everything the duo does – both on stage and in the studio – is unified by their simple mission mantra.
Whether it’s their own original song, an innovative remix, or collaborations with some of music’s A-list artists, GTA have continued to receive support from both fans and the ‘who’s who’ in the music industry. Whether it be their 2013 Diplo assisted single ‘Boy Oh Boy’ that garnered over 86 million Youtube plays, their 2015 hit ‘Intoxicated’ with Martin Solveig (which went top 5 on UK charts), their genre bending collaboration with Rick Ross on ‘Movin Bass’ which amassed over 11 million plays on Spotify, their remix of Rihanna’s ‘BBHMM’ with 5 million plays on Soundcloud, or their being enlisted by the prominent Rick Rubin on his Star Wars: Headspace compilation, GTA have truly positioned themselves as new-wave tastemakers and are paving the way for genre-less music to stand at the forefront. With all this under their belt, critical acclaim has organically poured in from the likes of The Fader, Complex, Hypetrak, GQ, Huffington Post and many more.
Fast-forward to now, GTA are serving up their 2016 full-length debut album aptly titled ‘Good Times Ahead’ on Warner Bros. Records. With a star studded cast of features including Tinashe, Vince Staples, What So Not, Wax Motif, IAMSU, and Tunji Ige the album showcases their forward thinking mentality which they’ve instilled in the very core of GTA.
This new album won't mark the peak for GTA, but rather display their steadfast commitment to pushing the proverbial envelope. Combined with their insane work ethic and inherent knack for creative expression, ‘Death To Genres’ has become a life motto, which has manifested itself into the already extraordinary career that is GTA.
