Long-time friends Dr. Fresch and BIJOU are in a constant battle for the G-House crown, but together they are unstoppable. After the release of collab track “Hello” in 2016 and their two-song Gangsta Party EP in January, anybody ready to get funky to a filthy house banger should run to your nearest streaming service to “Get Back.”
BIJOU states their goal was to
make the most banging G-House record that’s ever been done’ and, after testing it out at EDC, the G-House dons have landed right on the mark.BIJOU
And man, did they ever. The repeated warning from the vocal sample of “Bitch, get back” is layered over a fat bassline that surrounds you with a sprinkle of deep house synth on the g-house background.
So… What is G-House?
Characterized by its four-on-the-floor beat and its repetitive dirty vocal samples, G-house (AKA “ghetto house” or “booty house”) arrived in the EDM scene in the early 1990s. The genre began to dissipate through the 2000s, but is making a hard and fast return to the scene. Artists like Malaa, AC Slater, and Don Diablo experiment with the genre but as G-house grows, BIJOU and Dr. Fresch continue to push the envelope.
About The Artists: Dr. Fresch and BIJOU
Dr. Fresch won Insomniac’s Discovery Project contest in 2013, propelling him to release a unique discography via an impressive list of labels including OWSLA, Insomniac, Atlantic, and Ministry of Sound.
BIJOU, a home-grown DJ from Phoenix, is a self-proclaimed G-House Guru – and he’s not wrong. After several features and collaborative EP’s, an explosive release via Night Bass in 2017 gave BIJOU a deadly reputation as a producer in a competitive house scene.
Both BIJOU and Dr. Fresch started labels this year in order to showcase artists they find the best of the best.
