Detta, real name Adam Cuglietta, has been DJing for over 20 years and has rocked many parties, clubs and festivals in the UK, Latvia, Italy, Switzerland and more. He has grown from rave to drum and bass, from hip hop to breakbeat, to finally ending up in his rightful place in the mid tempo, bass heavy, funky breaks scene called Ghetto Funk.
His rise to fame has only been recent after winning the 2012 Ghetto Funk DJ Competition, beating 75 other entrants to win a DJ set at Sunrise Festivals UK alongside other artists such as Stickybuds, Goodgroove & B-Side. This paved the way for him to become a regular part of the Ghetto Funk Nightclub & Ghetto Funk Allstars crew which had him performing at many gigs & festivals with more major players like A-Skillz, Featurecast, JFB, Basement Freaks & The Funk Hunters.
Before this jump into the Ghetto Funk scene, Detta hosted many club nights in London, won a DJ competition at Snowbombing Festival and played for Finger Lickin Records at a TV advertising promotional event, to name some achievements. However since getting into producing in the last couple of years, his talents have shown he is more than just a great DJ.
In 2012 his 'reboot' of Knife Party's Bonfire was played on Mistajam's daily dose of dubstep show on Radio 1 Xtra. His C2C - Down The Road remix has been used by JFB as a regular track in his 2013 sets. His collaboration with Sammy Senior for a remix competition of Krafty Kuts's - Work That Body, saw them come 6th out of 120 entries. But most recently his collaboration track 'Bag It Up' that was featured on B-Side's Ghetto Funk EP, has been voted number #1 in Juno Records 'Best Breakbeat Recommendation of 2013'.
In summary, Detta will rock your party’s socks off! With his exclusive tracks, edits & remixes, matched with his turntablist skills, he is definitely one to watch…
