There are only “Good Times Ahead“, guys- at least that’s what Julio Mejia and Matt Toth believe and preach. You may know these boys better together as GTA, and they’re coming to Irving Plaza next Wednesday, November 25th (Thanksgiving’s Eve) as a part of their “Goons Take America” tour, along with Wax Motif, Sweater Beats, K Camp and Rich The Kid, to bring the good vibes, good times and killer tracks.
These “goons” specialize in the art of FILTH, because no genre defines them. The only genre they follow or cater to is good music, and they live by the motto of not allowing one specific genre define their sound. This match-made in heaven goes all the way back to February of 2010 when the two Miami natives were introduced to each other through a mutual friend and decided to join forces, and thus, GTA, the “genre-defying” duo was born. Man, what a ride it has been for these boys. It’s only been 3 years and it’s hard to find a set nowadays that doesn’t include a GTA song since their tracks and style is so versatile that it gains the likes of so many different artists. From David Guetta to Ookay, Skrillex to Laidback Luke, Pete Tong to Felix Cartal and back around to A-Trak, these are just few of the names that have featured GTA tracks like ‘Bola‘, ‘Ai Novinha‘ and ‘Hard House‘ in their sets. My personal favorite is their collab with Wiwek on ‘What We Tell Dem‘ and you best believe that you can catch me losing it if that gets dropped in their set at Irving. These guys are full of surprises because you literally just never know what they’ll drop in their sets. The possibilities are ENDLESS, take a listen to their recent HARD Summer set below and you’ll see for yourself what to expect. Actually scratch that, because you never know what to expect with these guys. That’s why we found it absolutely necessary to give away two free tickets to catch their set at Irving with Wax Motif and K Camp, because this is gonna be one you cannot miss (find out how to enter below):
These boys don’t just stop there with the surprises. They have something HUGE in store for you guys, as displayed by their mysterious cryptic countdown on their website, along with a video of them on their Twitter and Facebook of them holding a tracklist of 4 songs. We have no answer as to what this could mean or what will happen when the timer reaches 0, but all we know is that there is something big coming. Right now, the countdown shows 1 day, 19 hours, 32 minutes and 25 seconds…24…23- you get the point. I guess you’ll all just have to wait and keep checking back to see…
