J Paul Getto started as a duo in 2010. It was a collaboration between Tony Saputo and
Maurice Tamraz until early 2013, when they amicably parted to work on separate projects and
pursue different visions.
With a repertoire of guaranteed floor fillers, J Paul Getto, can now be crowned the new
minister of funk.
The JPG sound is a seamless plenty of contemporary techniques with classic samples of
danceable beats and heartfelt emotions that really get the girls in a spin. Though an
experienced producer in his own right, it was the coming together at a dinner party in
September 2010 that really set JPG off on a path to stardom. With the help of Maurice Tamraz
(which was a crucial part of the JPG sound) and Neil Petricone of X-Mix Productions , J Paul
Getto mined his own unique vein of sample heavy disco house, creating an impressive body
of work in such a short time, releasing tracks like ‘Imma Let You Know’, ‘3000’, and ‘Paris
Fried Chicken’ to rapturous receptions everywhere.
JPG started as part of the X-Mix Productions family alongside the likes of Armand van
Helden and sometime collaborator and kicking house legend, Todd Terry. As a remixer he is in
high demand, re-working the likes of Duck Sauce, DJ Sneak, Joey Negro, Louis La Roche,
Treasure Fingers, Roy Davis Jr and many more. One of their biggest remixes of 2012 came in
their rework of Will Monotone’s ‘Dem Mai Hoes’, a dazzling production which took his sound
to every corner of the globe.
2012 saw J Paul Getto play some legendary events across US, closing the X-Mix party with
Todd Terry in Miami and featuring on a stacked lineup at Coachella Festival. J Paul Getto
continues to release original works and remixes across reputable labels such as Z Records,
Diamondhouse, Hed Kandi, Fogbank and with support coming from none other than P. Diddy
himself for his remix of Nas’ “The Don”, his stock is only set to rise further.
In 2013 we saw JPG release tracks like Different Folks & Handle Your Scandal on Dj Mes’
Guesthouse Records, The Getto Life EP on Joey Negro’s Z Records, several remixes for the
prestigious Salsoul label on Ultra Records and in November, he shared the stage with Amtrac,
Jamie Jones and Anime Edge & Dance at Hard Fest Underground Stage.
In 2014, he was personally asked by Kaskade to be his opener for his Redux show in Boston.
He also remixed “Take Your Mind Off It” from Kaskade’s last album.
In 2015, he continued to release tracks and remixes for various labels including
Jesse Rose’s Play It Down label, while collaborating with upcoming artists and
veterans DJs like Bad Boy Bill, Brillstein and Man Without A Clue for upcoming
music in 2016.
