Stream & Download Getter’s Vibrant, Genre-Blending New 12-Track Album ‘Visceral’

We’ve been waiting for this one for quite some time. Having put his blood sweat and tears into this new project over the last three years, today Getter’s new album Visceral is finally here via Mau5trap.

Getter has had a whirlwind of a time over the past few years. Having launched his own label, started a new hip-hop side project and even stated that he would be leaving EDM, it’s no wonder this album has been a while in the making. But as we recently talked with the LA-based producer about the process leading up to Visceral, it seems that this project embodies more raw emotion than we ever could’ve expected. He also clarified his comments about EDM, saying he just went on a rant and isn't planning on leaving the genre. 

Upon first listen to the new project, we’re absolutely loving the new direction Getter is traveling. Filled with inspiration from all over the electronic music spectrum, Getter has switched things up on this latest offering, blending bright, ethereal synths, lush, atmospheric soundscapes, powerful vocals and heavy bass seamlessly throughout. While different than the dubstep, trap or even future bass that we’ve heard from Getter in the past, there’s no denying this is some of the most passionate music we’ve ever heard from the 25-year-old artist. And although included on the album are recently released singles “All Is Lost”, “Made For You (Alone Again)”, “Solo”, (and a new interlude version of “Colorblind”), with features from Njomza, Midoca, Joji and more, listeners can expect numerous curveballs and switch-ups throughout the entirety of this new 12-track journey.

Stream Visceral in its entirety below and make sure to take a trip back seven+ years to where it all began with our cohesive timeline of Getter’s career here. Enjoy!

Getter - Visceral

EXCLUSIVE | Getter Opens Up About New Album ‘Visceral’, Depression, His Thoughts On EDM & More In Personal Interview

From dubstep to trap to future bass, house, hip-hop/rap and beyond, Getter has continued to thoroughly impress us over the years. With over 14 EP’s and one full-length LP under his belt, at 25-years-old Getter has already accomplished a careers worth of achievement having been in the game for just over 7 years. We actually just broke down his career in this "Evolution of Getter" editorial you should check out. 

Having picked up major traction with his hip-hop side project Terror Reid over the last year, the young LA-based artist has been keeping incredibly busy releasing countless singles under his two projects, while at the same time on tour and managing his imprint, Shred Collective. With his forthcoming album Visceral set to drop tomorrow (Sep. 28) we took some time to sit down with Getter to talk about music, life lessons and more. Enjoy!

Congrats on getting Visceral out there! This album seems to be a big step both personally and in your career - what does Visceral mean to you?

Thank you!!! It’s definitely the first project in my career that I feel will define me moving forward. Super super proud of it. To me, Visceral is a coping mechanism, it’s a diary, it’s a million different things in one. But most importantly, Visceral is my chance to be an example. I want to convince everyone to wear their heart on their sleeve. I know what it’s like to struggle with depression and anxiety and most people my age do nowadays. It’s confusing, and it destroys you. This is my way of dealing with it and I want to urge everyone to be open and honest with themselves and their peers. This shit is real and it’s time we recognize it and deal with it head on.

You’ve said in the past that Visceral is a follow-up to your Planet Neutral project - in what ways are the two connected?

In some ways it is connected to planet neutral. It’s a similar vibe - honest, real pieces of music that tell a story. Music that can be listened to without partying. Stuff like that.

How long did take you to complete this album, from start to finish?

Well the first actual song, “Hold On Tight” was made like 2 and a half years ago with Njomza. From there I just was making pretty music. Then it turned into me actually feeling shit and using it to help myself cuz i didn’t know what else to do. I really wanted to take my time and polish it off and get the best features to match the vibe.

How has your personal taste in music changed over the course of the Getter project and has that had an impact on the music you make?

It has changed a lot. Definitely have been listening to a little of everything. At first, when I was lashing out and being an asshole, it was immediately me listening to angry music and saying “fuck EDM” and all that. After assessing my problems and quitting drugs and shit I realized how much music can help me, not just creating it but also listening and feeling it. I mean fuck one day I’ll be listening to The Black Dahlia Murder then switch over to Bright Eyes. Definitely changed my outlook on music completely.

Is there a specific track or moment from the album that is most important to you?

I think “Colorblind” was the game changer for me. It was my first time being like “fuck I AM depressed and I’m sad all the time and I AM sorry to anyone I’ve made feel like shit but I don’t want to tell everyone and start a pity party so I need to write down all the madness in my brain to MAYBE make people try to understand” and I spent  hours yelling and screaming and crying trying to make the perfect part of a different song that people will remember. The album version is my favorite.

What was the most important thing you learned while crafting this album?

I think not being afraid to open up and be honest with people rather than hiding behind a persona or a brand is what I’ve learned. People need something to relate to. They need something to distract them from this fucked up planet. They need to see the good in the world instead of all these fuckin articles popping up. Yes the world is fucked but there is beauty in pain. There are good things too and I don't know… I just wanna see everyone happy in the end. I just want everyone (including myself) be happy.

You’ve been vocal about your disdain of EDM in the past. What is it that ultimately turned you off, and has your mindset on the genre changed since you made those comments?

I went on a huge rant when I was breaking down. Said a lot of dumb shit. When I said I was quitting EDM and shit, I just meant I wanted to pursue a different style. I blamed everything happening to me on everything else. I never truly looked at ME and what I was doing. Clearly didn’t mean all that shit, but i get it now. I don’t hate the genre.

What were some of the hardest challenges you’ve faced in your music career?

The hardest shit for me is the hate. Or when people act like they know you. Or fake people. People think that when someone has followers or gets “famous” that they aren’t human. Like they can say whatever they want. And that’s possible now with social media and everything. But the only thing separating famous people and not famous people is the word “FAMOUS”. I’m just a person like you but I did a few things to make a name for myself. But I still have feelings and I still have opinions. I’m a person just like you. But yeah I don’t know, people get nasty. That and people that act like they give a fuck about you to get something from you. I used to have so many “friends” but I got a small circle right now of people that really actually give a fuck about each other, and it’s nice.

We’re HUGE fans of Terror Reid and all the rap production you’ve been doing. What’s next for Getter and Terror Reid?

Thanks! I’m working on a lot of hip-hop with my homie eliozie, he’s like the best rapper right now. We finished his album, I’ve started on my Terror Reid album and I’m already working on another Getter album. My goal now is to top all my older music. So just expect a lot of great, honest music :)

The Evolution Of Getter: From Riddim Beginnings To ‘Visceral’ & Everything Between

getter - @thisisflik

Tanner Petulla, better known as Getter has had an absolutely wild ride as an artist. Having originally started out in the world of riddim, his journey through dubstep, trap, future bass, house, hip-hop/rap, metal and beyond has been paved with fandom, opposition, controversy, but above all else, incredible perseverance. Today we are conflicted - although we’re extremely excited about the upcoming release of Getter’s new album Visceral, it will also mark his self-announced departure from EDM, so we’re celebrating Getter’s 7+ year journey as an artist today with The Evolution Of Getter.

Early Beginnings (2011)

Back when Skrillex was bringing dubstep to unlikely audiences and David Guetta dominated the dance music charts with vocal heavy house, Getter was on some other sh*t entirely. Slowly on the rise with fellow riddim producers Point.Blank, Sluggo and F3tch around the time that names like Eptic, Trampa, Liquid Stranger and more were emerging, Getter first began to make a name for himself via numerous compilation singles on labels like Tuff Love Dubs and Ultragore, ultimately going on to drop his first two Extermination and Gruesome EP’s on Ultragore Records.

Cybertron Disco” and “Obliterate” both perfectly exemplify Getter’s riddim roots.

Rise to Prominence (2012 - 2014)

Around 2012 - 2014 is when Getter really began to blow up in the dubstep scene. After saving up enough to move to LA, 19-year-old Petulla began jumping between labels BroTown and Rottun Recordings to drop his Epidemic, Psycho and Swine EP’s. Getter went on to join heavy hitters like AFK, Excision, MUST DIE!, Protohype and ETC!ETC! on Datsik’s Firepower Records. This is when we see Getter’s streak really start to pick up with the release of his next two EP’s, Smasher and Thriller, as well as his first full length album I Want More and his compilation project Trenchlords.

“A ‘Trenchlord’ is someone who I think makes fuckin’ dope music that I collaborate with and recruit to the trench project. Basically a smaller community full of quality artists I like and can collaborate the way we want to.” - Getter (via a 2014 Your EDM interview)

A cosign and tour placement from Datsik helped open the door for Getter to be picked up on remix packages for Barely Alive, Destroid, Borgore and more.

Going Viral (2015 - 2016)

Not even a year later, we see Getter start to gain some serious traction. In 2015 shortly after Getter and Nick Colletti become IRL friends and “Head Splitter” is picked up by OWSLA, the now LA-based producer quickly achieved viral status courtesy of the infamous “suh dude” vines (and later the song). In the fall in 2015 though, Getter shared something that seemed completely out of left field to many of his fans - Getter Presents: Planet Neutral. Dedicated to his friend Johnnie Greenback who had recently passed, this 9-track, chill-album not only helped show that Getter wasn’t afraid to branch out, but that he was and is a much more powerful producer than some had been giving him credit for.

*If you haven’t checked out Planet Neutral it’s definitely worth a listen, especially since Getter has alluded to the fact that his forthcoming album Visceral is a continuation of that project.*

After a few more remixes on Firepower Records (plus one for Mad Decent) Getter signed with OWSLA on remixes for Carmada, Valentino Khan and Snails x Herobust and a huge collaboration with Ghastly before reaching the next full evolution of his sound with the release of his Radical Dude! EP. From there Getter went on to release a second project toward the end of 2016, yet again furthering his recently solidified bit crushy, dynamic sound on his Wat The Frick EP.

Collabs with Ookay and Borgore were a few other key tracks to come out around Getters 2015-16 rise.

Shred Collective, Terror Reid and Departing from EDM (2017 - Present)

At the beginning of 2017 Getter’s career reached the highest point of its trajectory thus far, to which he responded by following in the footsteps of his predecessors in creating his own label - Shred Collective.

Although the collective’s main function is to release music, Getter has stated numerous times (including in this video where he breaks down the new label) that the collective is centered around a community of his closest friends. The philosophy of Shred Collective is, in simple terms, to equally fund all artists ambitions within the Shred community.

“Would you rather have a million dollars and broke friends, or have all your homies have $100,000?” - Getter

A few things happened around the time of the collective’s inception: Getter shared another track, “Inhalant Abuse” that has since become one of his biggest releases to date, embarked on a mini series titled “The Real Bros of Simi Valley” and launched an incredible new rap hip-hop/alias, Terror Reid (which we've definitely had on repeat since its inception).

Although at first Getter feigned ignorance concerning the new project, saying that he had no idea who Terror Reid was or that he blacks out and when he comes to he finds out Terror Reid “stole his hip-hop beats”, Petulla has since embraced the project as part of his catalog. Characterized by hard-hitting, old school hip-hop beats akin to the early 90's era of Public Enemy, Wu Tang and Cypress Hill, Terror Reid has slowly taken on a life of its own and has even started to be booked alongside Getter at some major festivals.

Terror Reid's first two releases, "Uppercuts & "Who Dat?" remain the most streamed singles released via the project.

Understandably, not everyone was an immediate fan of Terror Reid, and soon after dropping a few more singles as both Getter and TR, in response to harsh criticism from a fan, the Petulla took to twitter to announce he would be moving on from the industry in which he had spent most of his career. 

Around this time Getter also began to yet again branch out with his sound, dropping a three-track EP, Dahlia I and heavy trap single “Bury Me” with Florida/LA transplant rapper Ghostmane, as well as metal/trap/rap fusion track “Colorblind”.

Solo perfectly exemplifies Getter’s recent transition away from a defined genre.

We can’t say for sure what the future will hold for Petulla. With the release of his latest track “Made For You (Alone Again)” and having recently shared the full tracklist for the 12-track album, Visceral (set for release on deadmau5' label) - while excited about the new mau5trap partnership, Getter has been firm in stating that his Shred Collective label will continue to live on. Additionally, although Getter has continued to confirm his imminent departure from EDM since the initial announcement was made at the beginning of 2017, this hasn’t stopped him from teasing the seemingly ridiculous amount of music he still has in the works, hopefully some of which will see the light of day in the near future.

Regardless of where Getter stops next in his career, whether it’s metal, rap, fashion, art, memes, film or whatever, there’s no doubt that it’ll be weird, funny and awesome. Enjoy!
