Getter releases statement, will continue making music for himselfGetter Visceral Mau5trap

In a statement on social media, Getter expressed his raw feelings about the recent negative fan reactions on his most recent Visceral tour, which he ended up canceling to step away from the intense negative backlash that included people throwing things at him on stage.  Fittingly during Mental Health Awareness month, the artist expressed his intense sensitivity to the work he puts out into the world and emotional weight of responding on social media. After stepping away from social media for a while, Getter says he feels a lot better.

With all of this said, Getter will hand his social media responsibilities to his management while focusing on making music for himself. His debut album, Visceral, was a step away from the party dubstep he initially made a name for himself with, focusing on hip-hop, rock, and electronic elements that culminated into an expression of his rawest moments and emotions.

Getter has cancelled the rest of his Visceral album tour.

The producer released his debut album—which fused hip-hop, rock, and electronic into an expressive story on life’s rawest moments and emotions—during fall of 2018 as a way to “not only move forward with my career, but my mental state,” he began in the Twitter statement breaking the news. Visceral was a far cry from the party friendly sounds that brought him fame, and ended up facing immense audience backlash as a result. There were even reports of people throwing things at him from stage in anger, which he confirmed in his post.

“I need to make myself happy,” Getter concluded about his decision to cancel the tour. He’s since received an outpouring of support and encouragement from fellow DJs and fans.

Getter addresses negative fan reactions on ‘Visceral’ tour

Getter addresses negative fan reactions on ‘Visceral’ tourGetter Viseral Mau5trap

“I used to make music for the wrong reasons,” began Getter on Twitter following reports of booing and generally bad fan reactions to his Visceral tour stop in Houston, Texas on March 15. Even after the former dubstep/EDM artist made edits to his live sound so that it’d be “more appealing” to his currently split fanbase, audience members were evidently still displeased at his overall change in direction both in the studio and on tour. Getter, sticking to his guns, continued his statement addressing this on Twitter by asserting he’d “found something [he] could chase that’s far more complex than the trendy bullshit.” The only thing that matters to him, is that he’s spent his time and money on a project that he truly loves and is proud of, and his staunchness is quite refreshing.

Getter will continue to break his own boundaries musically and do what he feels is right creatively regardless of fan reactions. They’ll catch up eventually. In the meantime, the artist has a steady run of tour dates ahead stretching through April that continues to take him across all corners of the US.

 

 

 

 

Getter delivers wobbly, experimental trap cut on ‘Ham Sandwich’

Getter delivers wobbly, experimental trap cut on ‘Ham Sandwich’Getter Visceral Album Release

Getter is becoming an expert at keeping fans on their toes. Whether he is quitting electronic music or just renouncing dubstep, the artist has switched creative directions plenty of times and thus proven he is far more than a one trick pony when it comes to manufacturing screeching synths and heavy drops.

Getter released full length album Visceral in 2018 after opening up about his desire to produce more than just the hard-hitting electronic music that catapulted him into stardom. The album spanned a bevy of genres, and the LP ultimately enjoyed widespread positive acclaim. At the time, some fans of his earlier, heavier handed sound expressed displeasure when the “Big Mouth” producer stepped away from his championed genre entirely, so now Getter is back and he’s giving the people what they want on his latest, “Ham Sandwich.” Well, sort of.

“Ham Sandwich” combines wobbly, wonky synth layers with a steady drum beat for a syrupy, downtempo drip that has all the makings of a menacing bass cut, but rather opts for a more laid back disposition that relies heavily on the experimental trap sound Getter fans know and love.

Getter’s metamorphosis comes to fruition with new ‘Visceral’ LP

Getter’s metamorphosis comes to fruition with new ‘Visceral’ LPGetter Visceral Album Release

Since the beginning of the summer, Getter has made it clear to fans that a change was coming. In June, a full seven-minute trailer teased a more refined aesthetic, and the most diverse and melodic tracks yet from the producer. It’s clear the collection of music was meant to feel different from the start, with the producer saying each song “represents a piece of me or a part of my life.” In a world where some artists feel they’re risking being “left behind” while creating a cohesive body of work, Getter’s commitment to Visceral was immediately eye and ear catching. Now, the producer’s invigorated vision is released in full on his new label home, deadmau5‘ own mau5trap imprint.

As the spacey, rolling synth line in the opening track Purgatory drifts in and out of key and focus, it’s easy to draw a parallel to the internal discord Getter has opened up about in recent months. In an interview with Dancing Astronaut, the artist detailed his struggles with mental illness and how it’s affected the spirit of his musical output. “I got through my shit by writing music, and I wrote a song “Color Blind,” literally in tears, wrote these fucking lyrics cause I was on the edge,” explained the producer. “I felt way better, so I chased that feeling.” Visceral‘s role as a therapeutic release is apparent across its diverse set of soundscapes and arrangements. The AudioOpera-assisted “Part of Me” brings all the bombastic percussion and festival-rocking power of past Getter productions, but achieves its impact through an unexpected depth of spacious atmospherics, washing mournful over a slowed drums. The more textured approach continues across tracks like “Made for You (Alone Again),” with Getter’s own intensely personal lyrics holding court over a glitchy break beat and swirling arps.

When Visceral was announced, it understandably raised some eyebrows. What about OWSLA Getter, who eats festivals for breakfast with vicious trap hits like “Head Splitter?” How would the artist’s vision translate to sets and expectations–and to his new label’s techno and progressive-leaning horde? The honest answer is that Getter is clearly not out to please anybody, or meet any expectations with his experimental full length other than his own. The result is the most is an unexpectedly introspective evolution that feels more honest than anything the artist has done before. Getter’s knack for slapping drums and hip hop-infused arrangements is still here in spades on songs like “Best of Me” and “Numb,” but each track remains in a melodic realm previously visited only in spurts. Visceral is the result of an EDM mainstay committing to himself, his craft, and the idea that evolving in the name of expression resonates truer than any expectations.

Getter releases a unique single, ‘Made For You (Alone Again),’ from upcoming ‘Visceral’ LP on mau5trapGetter Viseral Mau5trap

Getter has released another track, “Made For You (Alone Again),” from his upcoming Visceral album to be released of deadmau5‘s mau5trap on September 28. The album is set to show another side of the versatile producer after shifting away from his previous EDM sounds. This shift is also prevalent in his Terror Reid hip-hop project. “Made For You (Alone Again)” is quite the unique project, with Getter’s vocals pursuing anticipation amidst sparkling synths and a punchy kick arrangement. Diving into a pool of sub bass and static high ends, this use of bass sounds reminiscent of Zeds Dead‘s “Coffee Break.” The Shred Collective founder promises a personal and inspired project, demonstrating his evolution from roots in dubstep.

So far, three singles have been released from the 12-track LP. The other two being “All Is Lost” off mau5ville: Level 1 and Colorblind (interlude). Deadmau5 and Getter hit it off at a video game conference, evolving their relationship into a working one. Fans of Getter are here for the artist, whichever way he chooses to go, as he’s been vocal about his mental health issues with anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. Read Dancing Astronaut‘s interview here, which details Getter’s artistic directions within the scope of his emotions.
