We’ve all seen the video of Nina Kraviz playing DJ Slugo’s “Wouldn’t You Like To Be a Ho Too” at Les Plages Electroniques Festival.
With DJs like Nina, Jeremy Underground, Jackmaster and many more playing Ghetto House classics in their sets we’re starting to see a revival of a brilliant genre. Today we look at our ten favourite 808 driven Ghetto House classics to get yo bootys bouncin’.
DJ Deeon – Pussy, Weed & Alcohol
Deeon says it how it is, writing some ghetto house poetry. This was released digitally in 2006 on Juke Trax Online.
