J Paul Getto
Few house music artists have enjoyed both the longevity and sustained success earned by J Paul Getto - which actually started as a 2010 collaboration between Tony Saputo and Maurice Tamraz in 2010, with the pair working under the guidance of long-time Armand Van Helden manager Neil Petricone at X-Mix. Operating as a solo artist since 2013, Saputo has been such a consistent and SOLID producer that even James Brown is Getting Down.
The JPG sound is a seamless blend of contemporary techniques and heartfelt emotions bolstered with classic samples. Mining his own unique vein of sample heavy disco house, J Paul Getto created an impressive body of work in a short time, releasing tracks like ‘3000’ and ‘Paris Fried Chicken’. Now boasting a full repertoire of HOUSE music floor-fillers, J Paul Getto revels in his role as the new minister of funk.
For years, J Paul Getto has rocked leading ENTERTAINMENT events across the US and throughout the world. He has held the Body Heat residency in Milan, closed the X-Mix party in Miami with Todd Terry, wowed crowds in Dubai & Ibiza. He has also headlined at the Amsterdam Dance Event and featured at Coachella. Kaskade personally asked JPG to be the opener for his 2016 and 2018 Redux shows in Boston.
J Paul Getto continues to release original works and remixes on leading labels like Z Records, Glasgow Underground, Guesthouse, Brobot, Nurvous, and Fogbank, a label with almost 300 releases started by Armand Van Helden and resurrected by JPG in 2011. In 2016, J Paul secured four Traxsource Top 10s, including two #1s, and was crowned Traxsource #2 House Artist of the Year and #13 Traxsource Artist of the Year. And with support coming from P. Diddy for his remix of Nas' ‘The Don’, J Paul Getto’s stock continues it’s impressive climb.
