GTA Discusses the Influence of Latin Music on Their Sound

Miami-based GTA have developed a reputation in recent years for producing genre-defying bangers which include hit collaborations with Diplo and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
The duo sat down with GRAMMY Pro at this year’s Lollapalooza to discuss how they met, their creative process, how their Latin heritage has shaped their sound, and more.

“We’re both of Latino descent … we kind of grew up with our parents and our grandparents listening to old salsa records and a lot of old records our grandparents would show us. Growing up listening to that, and kind of loving it, it makes us love organic drums and a lot of African rhythms and stuff like that.” — Matt Toth, GTA
