Dirty house pioneer Vato Gonzalez offers no apologies if his latest version of riddim incites a riot. With "Monkey Riddim,“ Vato Gonzalez returns to the big-room he helped build with aggressive synth work, raspy vocal samples from the same person who provided the sample for Martin Garrix’s "Animals,” and a little help from Tjen. Already receiving support from industry titans including Hardwell, W&W, Sander Van Doorn, Nicky Romero, Danny Howard and Tommy Trash, “Murda Dem” is shaping up to be a surefire summer sizzler.
Since his beginning in the dirty house movement back in 2007, Vato Gonzalez has been absolutely unstoppable. Recognized worldwide as an industry innovator and seasoned performance whiz, the genre originator continues to grow his dirty house empire which now includes club nights, festival stages, mixtapes, a booking agency and a record label.
Production-wise, he has garnered support from the likes of David Guetta, Hardwell, Diplo, Pete Tong and many more. His 2013 smash-hit “Sushi Riddim” signified his staying power among the world’s top talent with an entry into the Beatport Top 10. Whether you recognize him as an electronic branding barron or as the producer of international hits like 2011’s “Badman Riddim,” Vato Gonzalez is a name you can’t forget.
