After years of cultivating songs, mixes and remixes, and overall vibes for festivals and tours, the Miami-bred DJ/producer duo revealed the October 7th release of their eponymous full-length album, Good Times Ahead.

Featuring TinasheVince StaplesTungi IgeIamsuWax MotifWhat So Not and more, the long-waited debut is a testament to their multiple influences and highlights their eclectic production ear.

1.  True Romance [ft. Jarina De Marco] 2.  Little Bit of This [ft. Vince Staples] 3.  Feel It [w/ What So Not ft. Tunji Ige] 4.  Heartbeat
5.  Get It All [w/ Wax Motif] 6.  All Caught Up [ft. Tinashe] 7.  In My Nature [ft. Karina] 8.  Pressure [ft. RKCB] 9.  Contract [ft. Iamsu!] 10.  Illuminate

Last month, GTA released the first look from their 10-track album, a collaboration with Wax Motif entitled Get It All.”


“We’ve always had bigger aspirations than just the dance space which came hand in hand with our ‘Death To Genres’ mentality,” they explain. “To us, music was more about what made you move rather than what type of music was playing. With this album we’re able to explore all facets of music that we love, flip the script and bring everything together into one fluid album that we’re really proud of”.

To coincide with the album, GTA has produced their Good Times Ahead Press zine.  200 limited-edition copies of the zine’s first edition are now available for preview and purchase.  Fans in Los Angeles will be able to review and purchase a copy at an exclusive pop-up event tonight, August 5th.

GTA aka ‘Good Times Ahead’ confidently represent characteristics such as musical integrity and originality in abundance.  At the mere age of twenty-five and in the space of only a few prolific years, the Miami-born DJs/Producers have managed to build a remarkable musical empire, boasting an impressive 2.6 million monthly Spotify listeners and over 350 million aggregated YouTube plays.  Their innate ability behind the decks has seen them stun some of the most esteemed festivals around the globe, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Made In America, Tomorrowland, and many more on top of headlining their own tours, a 2016 residency at Hakkasan Vegas, and joining Rihanna on her ‘Diamonds World Tour’.

Whether it’s their own original song, an innovative remix, or collaborations with some of music’s A-list artists, GTA have continued to receive support from both fans and the ‘who’s who’ in the music industry.  Whether it be their 2013 Diplo assisted single ‘Boy Oh Boy’ that garnered over 86 million Youtube plays, their 2015 hit ‘Intoxicated’ with Martin Solveig (which went top 5 on UK charts), their genre-bending collaboration with Rick Ross on ‘Movin Bass’, which amassed over 11 million plays on Spotify, their remix of Rihanna’s ‘BBHMM’ with 5 million plays on Soundcloud, or their being enlisted by the prominent Rick Rubin on his Star Wars: Headspace compilation, GTA are paving the way for genre-less music to stand at the forefront.
