Tron Jovi is the studio project of Milwaukee-based musician and producer, Martin Defatte. During an extended hiatus from playing in punk and hardcore bands, Defatte became enthralled with the work of Prefuse 73, Madlib and MF Doom. Over the next 15+ years, Defatte honed his own production and engineering skills, learning the basics of sequencers, samplers and software based production workstations. After assembling a home recording studio, to capture his friends’ music, he revisited his past as an electronic producer.
Hoping for little more than a little local airplay and the satisfaction of completed project, Tron challenged himself to write and record an EP of material entirely on his own in the winter of 2013-14, drawing on his backgrounds in both electronic and guitar based music. He followed up with a second EP and a slew of cover singles.
After revisiting his love of the UK Grime genre, he was inspired to write a batch of demos which would eventually become the socio-political noise-rap project, Guerrilla Ghost. Now with four years and nearly 50 shows under his belt with GGHOST, Tron Jovi has taken that experience and pandemic downtime to create a 6-song EP entitled Bass + Frequency Studies in Dub, Chapter One due out on Triple Eye Industries Spring 2021 as a limited edition lathe cut.
