In the middle of a global explosion of electronic dance music, a genre that thrives in the most exclusive nightclubs of the world’s cosmopolitan cities, a prodigious producer has emerged from the unlikeliest of places. The small farm town of De Soto, Missouri has been the home of Guantanamo Bae (AKA Zachary McClanahan) until he was 18, but it was after serving in the US Navy that his music career began. Starting with GarageBand, and with a much-needed upgrade to Abelton, GB (Guantanamo Bae) crafted his signature sound.
After the military in 2013, he uprooted his life and moved to New York City. GB began working on music in secret while attending college. While his friends were partying their nights away, and going on exotic spring breaks, GB worked on his sounds in private. Eventually sharing them with his close friends at house parties and small club gatherings in New York City. However, after overwhelmingly positive feedback, he finally decided to self-publish to streaming platforms.
After building a significant audience and playing at progressively larger venues, GB finally started submitting to labels. He received multiple offers and decided to go with the German SWUTCH Music Group on their RUN FREE label. GB’s single ‘Harambe Dreamin’ was released and is currently racking up hundreds of thousands of streams.
With his ability to perpetually create new, high-quality tracks; GB has turned his attention to performing live, a craft he takes just a seriously as his production. GB recently performed at some of the hottest clubs in the US including New York’s Brooklyn Mirage,
L.A.’s Academy, Omnia in Las Vegas, and Miami’s Club Space. With more big shows forthcoming, GB is ready to continue his rapid rise out of De Soto, and around the world.
Linking up with the talented vocalist Lola Arruti, GB unveils a stunning new single ‘Me Perdiste’. ‘Me Perdiste’, at its heart, is a mid-set show
stopper and stands as a perfect introduction to his emerging musicality. The track is quite exciting and quite unforgettable in terms of the rhythmic pattern used as well as the vocal arrangement by Lola Arruti. By placing all the catchy and punchy rhythms into his track, GB delivered an engaging classic hit that prompts the listener to dance to his groove almost instantly.
