OWSLA


[PREMIERE] Listen To Getter's Impressive 7 Track 'Wat The Frick' EP

Getter Eyes Press (Wat The Frick)

The wait for Getter's EP is finally over! Wat The Frick has finally arrived on OWSLA and taps into everything from his classic dubstep sound to other styles like future bass and hip-hop, making it his biggest release of work to date. Interestingly enough, the LA producer excludes his "Wat The Frick" single from the EP but cues the seven-track collection with a VIP mix of the original song.

The opening 8-bit sequence is replaced with a gospel choir singing in a minor key that eerily contrasts the production's haunting lead melody. Soon enough, listeners are immersed in organized dubstep chaos comprised of punches and growls. The VIP mix is a hard track to follow but meets its moombah-trap counterpart, "Hecka Tight", batting second. The production is spiked with crisp drums, siren samples and processed vocals that swiftly appear in low and high pitched bursts.

Getter slows things down with "Fricken Dope", an equally intense bass gem that unleashes flawless vocal chops in automatic fashion during the drop. If that wasn't dope enough, he switches things up again with "Cool As Frick". The track showcases steely, hard elements that have a futuristic feel to them.

"Sick Jet Pack Bro" may have the most space-like soundscape of them all, though. Imagine aliens conversing on a spaceship while pressing away at a plethora of buttons they shouldn't be pushing. Now add a rippling, hollow synth that sporadically releases gusts of air. Now think back to the title and it all makes sense. The imagery is incredibly vivid.

Outside of the bass realm, Getter flexes his seasoned hip-hop production skills with frequent collaborator $uicideBoy$ on "2 High". While it is the only hip-hop production on the EP, the track's ominous, ambient pads and distorted vocals sync up with the project's cohesive sonic theme. Last but not least is the collection's sole future bass cut, "Something New", which imports beachside elements alongside a laid-back sequence of warm synths, splattering snares and a flute-based melody.

As a whole, Getter's Wat The Frick EP is stunningly diverse and engages its listeners in a multitude of settings, whether it be melancholy and dark or lively and bright. The project's titling also coincides with the branding of his stacked North American fall tour kicking off Sept. 6 in Toronto. The culmination of it all leads up to believe that the DJ/producer/entertainer is undoubtedly at the top of his game. Stream the seven-track project exclusively on TSIS and be sure to take a look at the dates of his upcoming North American Wat The Frick tour . Enjoy!

Getter Shares Refreshing Future Bass Single "Something New" Off Upcoming EP

Getter Something new

Los Angeles DJ/producer Getter has been on a dubstep bender the past few months, but switches things up with his latest single, "Something New", on OWSLA. As opposed to diving right into the meat of the production, he gradually sets the stage by incorporating live oceanside sound effects and cinematic elements. From birds cawing in the distance to waves rushing up and down the sand, Getter paints a soothing summer piece. 

His previous releases, such as "Wat The Frick" and "Rip N Dip", rely heavily on intense builds and blistering drops while his newest output revolves around vivid imagery and bright melodies that cater to a catchy vocal chop sequence. "Something New" runs down a similar lane as his peaceful 2014 single, "Stay A While", and is one of seven tracks to land on his forthcoming Wat The Frick EP out on Sept. 2. Enjoy!
