Nitti Gritti and his best bud DJ Diesel are about to dunk on the competition. They’re “Takin’ Over,” and ain’t nothing going to be subtle about it.
Nitti Gritti is the up-and-coming bass DJ and producer you can’t stop hearing about. He’s got a collaboration on Dillon Francis’ forthcoming EP Magic Is Real, out on Mad Decent Friday (Nov. 15). But he makes this week a two-pointer with the former NBA big man Shaquille O’Neal. “Takin’ Over” is a monster stomper, a mechanical face cruncher, a dynamic dubstep explosion. It features vocals from the roundball legend and enough bone crunching noise to leave the competition smoking.
Shaq and Gritti have been dropping the song all summer long. The former even played it for the Ultra crowd in March when he hopped on stage during Nghtmre and Slander’s headline set. The song will be featured on Gritti’s forthcoming EP What A Time To Be Alive later this year.
“Takin’ Over” is out everywhere Friday, Nov. 15, but you can listen to it a day early in full below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
