Excision‘s powerful, slamming Virus album featured collaborations with heavyweights like Space Laces, Dion Timmer, Protohype, and Datsik on standout songs like “Throwin’ Elbows,” “Are You Ready,” and “Final Boss.” Like everything Exicision does, Virus was all-encompassing, showcasing the power the dubstep genius is able to harness.
Dillon Francis returns to moombahton in his remix of Excision and Dion Timmer‘s collaborative effort “Final Boss.” The original track, an entry on Excision’s latest LP Virus from November 2016, features piercing drops and the expected dose high energy, crushing bass.
Francis layers multiple new percussion elements and vocal backdrops in his remix of “Final Boss,” all situated over a moombahton feel that helped launched his career. While Dillon’s remix is a large departure from Excision’s original, his still maintains the raucous vibe and propellant quality of Excision and Dion Timmer’s first take. Enticingly, this remix is just one of a remix album Excision is dropping of Virus — to include 18 remixes from the likes of Getter,Seven Lions, and more.
California based producer Getter is back with new music, not with the trap and dubstep we have come to expect, but a new production under his rap alias “Terror Reid.” Dubbed”Stormin Tha Gatez,” its sound is distinctly old school 90s hip pop.
Getter’s Terror Reid alter ego is notorious for performing in a white ski mask, and many say that his rapping mirrors Eminem’s sound and style. Next week, Getter will release (as himself) a new collaboration with Ghostemane, so the producer has been nothing short of busy making music.
In addition to his new music, Getter will be embarking upon a 20-date North American tour titled ‘Big-Mouth’ Tour. Tickets are available on his website here.
One of the biggest surprises of 2017 was that Getter was actually a damn good rapper. The man known in 2016 mainly for his memes is making 2017 memorable for his new alias and incredible talents. ‘Stormin the Gatez’ is a powerhouse of a track. Produced by Getter himself and then rapped over as well,
Industry mainstay and G-House legend Destructo has been known to bring out the best talent for his many events, including EDC, Hard Summer, Holy Ship!, and more. This EP is no different, featuring five remixes of “All Nite,” a track from his recent Renegade project.
The blend of house and hip hop in Destructo’s original track, which features Bay Area icons E-40 and Too $hort, allows for a versatile and engaging range of remixes. Noise Frenzy leads off the EP, dropping a dark house remix with a growling bassline fit for any dance floor.
Thereafter, Getter‘s remix follows, in which he channels his inner Herobust for a crisp yet grimy trap and dubstep output. The second half of the EP features both Motez and Brohug’s house offerings along with Parker’s energetic festival trap chaos. This diverse and refreshing remix EP means “All Nite” is here to stay and may be a staple of this festival season.
Getter surprised the dance music world a few months back by launching a rap alias, Terror Reid, releasing staggering hip-hop singles “Uppercuts” and “Who Dat?.” With the creation of his label, Shred Collective, Getter has dropped his latest Terror Reid track, “Fuck Everybody.”
Comparable to something throwback Dre or Snoop would’ve rapped on, Getter flaunts his production skills with an old-school, West Coast rap-inspired hip-hop beat. Terror Reid delivers fresh, and unforgettable verses while a slow rolling, bumping bass line compliments every rhyme Getter delivers. With his diversity from producing dark, mesmerizing electronic tracks to his skill in hip hop, Getter flexes his impressive versatility when it comes to making music.
Getter has spilled the beans about his newest endeavor, Shred Collective, via an interview with NEST HQ. Getter shares that the collective’s direction will be driven democratically by its members, who consist of a number of rising DJ/producers, with merchandise and parties planned to help truly establish the brand.
Getter also delivers the tongue-and-cheek humor he’s known for, adding his own “summaries” about each member and even poking fun at himself for his twitter rants. More on Shred Collective is expected soon.
The festival will take place from September 16-18 at the Tokyo Odaiba ULTRA Park across three stage- Main Stage, Live Stage and RESISTANCE. Having announced an Ibiza residency recently, RESISTANCE will also see a major upgrade in Tokyo this year, with Carl Cox, Joseph Capriati, Sasha & John Digweed and Seth Troxler set to headline its stage.
