J Paul Getto started as a duo in 2010. It was a collaboration between Tony Saputo and Maurice Tamraz until early 2013, when they amicably parted to work on separate projects and pursue different visions. With a repertoire of guaranteed floor fillers, J Paul Getto, can now be crowned the new minister of funk. J Paul Getto joins Angelo Ferreri on remix duty of Demarkus Lewis and E-Man sexy deep house killer ‘Behind Closed Doors’ available now on Audiophile Records.
Hey Tony! Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Tony Saputo, I was born in the Boston area but lived in Italy for over 15 years. I have a younger brother and sister.
What kind of music were you into when you were growing up?
Crazy obsession with hip hop that started in the mid 80s and started getting into house around 1989 while living in Italy.
What was the first vinyl you ever purchased?
Inner City – Big Fun…on 45!
What is your most memorable moment while playing gigs around the world?
I would say playing in Milan the first time was the most important for me. I always dreamed of going back home as a professional and playing in front of my oldest friends. I made one of my very first tracks “Milano” with that in mind and I opened up my set with it 🙂

Who/What do you think is having the biggest impact on the music industry today (Good or Bad)?
Best impact is being able to guide your own career as an independent artist with your own vision. At the moment though, the worst of it is the super low pay from streaming sites. In our DJ world, thankfully we still have sites like Traxsource.
What releases do you have coming up?
I’ll be working hard on new music all winter. 2017 was a very busy touring year for me but in 2018, my goal is to have an album done before the summer. I have upcoming releases on Nervous, ASR, Safe Music, Clueless. No exact dates yet.
