EDITORS’ NOTES

The duo’s full-length debut holds nothing back in its pursuit of delirious energy. Rollicking between deep house rhythms, electro-pop hooks, and swaggy trap beats, Good Times Ahead has something for every phase of the party, from pre-game pump-ups (“Little Bit of This," featuring Vince Staples) to smooth cuts for after-hours (“True Romance," featuring Karina De Marco).

It's amazing seeing you guys rise up. 4 years ago, I knew you guys were gonna become something great; something huge. You guys keep it 100 all the time. When I got that chance to meet you two last year in Chicago, I was blown away. You guys have a lot of heart and passion. That's what it's all about, and it shows 100% in your tracks and sets. Thank you guys for this! See you guys at the MID on the 21st! Oh and best believe I got those VIP tickets! Nothin but Good Times Ahead👌🏼

About GTA

Miami electronic duo GTA ("Good Times Ahead") operate under the mantra "death to genres." While their brand is certainly rooted in dance, their various influences imbue their music with flavors ranging from jazz to hip-hop and metal to ska. In 2010, the DJ pair -- Julio Mejia and Matt Van Toth -- met over social media and decided to collaborate. Both grew up with significant Latin music influence (Mejia is Honduran and Van Toth is Cuban), making traditions like salsa, merengue, bachata, and reggaeton a common thread as they began producing beats at Miami Dade College. Early support from Afrojack and Laidback Luke led to work with Diplo, who included their track "Move Around" on his 2012 Express Yourself EP. They went on to tour with Rihanna, Tiësto, and Calvin Harris, further expanding their audience. By 2015, high-profile collaborations with Skrillex ("Red Lips" remix), Martin Solveig ("Intoxicated"), and A-Trak ("Landline") complemented their own DTG ("Death To Genres") EP series. GTA released their debut LP in late 2016. Good Times Ahead (Warner Bros.) featured guest appearances by Vince Staples, Iamsu!, and Tinashe. They followed with the singles "Buyaka" and "Talkin' Bout" before the 2018 release of the third installment in their EP series, Death to Genres, Vol. 3, which featured appearances by Dillon Francis, Baauer, and more. ~ Neil Z.
