Radioclit are a British DJ/production duo who refer to their style as ghettopop, that is, a m+¬lange of Dirty South rap, Baltimore club, British grime, funk carioca, and straight dance-pop along with various African dance-pop styles. Comprised of Johan Karlberg and Etienne Tron (aka DJ Tron), Radioclit got their start as a DJ tandem in the London borough of Hackney, where they reside. In addition to their club gigs, they hosted their own Internet radio show and compiled promotional mix CDs including You Godda Lick It (2004) and Careful Clit Clit (2005). As their popularity grew over time, they began streaming podcasts over the Internet, namely the Ghettopop series, which began in 2006 and carried on regularly for over a year's time. Radioclit also began doing production and remix work, releasing a couple EPs on Switch and Sinden's Counterfeet label (Mature Macho Machine, 2006; Divine Gosa, 2007) and remixing tracks by a number of artists, including Alphabeat ("Fantastic Six"), Bronski ("Bad Runner"), and most notably Bonde do Rol+¬ ("Mel+¦ do Tabaco," "Gasolina"). The duo's affiliation with Bonde do Rol+¬ also led to a couple production credits on the funk carioca group's 2007 album, With Lasers ("Divine Gosa," "Geremia"). Meanwhile, Tron founded his own label, Uppercuts, on which Radioclit released Hard Working Class, Vol. 1 (2007), a compilation of their production and remix work to date. In 2009, the duo worked with Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya in a project named the Very Best. The project's debut album, Warm Heart of Africa, arrived in 2009, with Radioclit's mix album of African dance music, The Sound of Club Secousse, following a year later. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
