So, here’s a guy renowned for his dance music anthems but also knows his way around the studio with a wide array of genres.
Add to this the undeniable talent of Nitti Gritti, another versatile producer who’s already worked with artists like Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, DJ Snake, Tiësto and Diplo. With the latter, he produced the hit single ‘200 MPH’ for Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, earning him a Latin GRAMMY in 2019.
In the meantime, Nitti Gritti kept moving, continuously releasing and co-producing new music, from last year’s popular streaming tune ‘Hey Motherfucker’, a collab with Timmy Trumpet, to this year’s teamup with Marshmello for his Shockwave album, resulting in ‘Bad Bitches’, featuring Megan Thee Stallion.
