Getter returns to dubstep with ‘Represent’
Getter has released his first track of 2020, “Represent.” The track serves as a venture back into dubstep after a rocky 2019 marred by criticism from his original fanbase for exploring genres outside the 140-or-bust realm. The Shred Collective label boss did drop “Krylon” with Eliozie last month, though on behalf of his Terror Reid hip-hop alter-ego.
“Represent” is a slow burner with a laid-back bounce led by a gritty bass line and high-pitched ad libs for contrast. The siren sounds in the background juxtapose the relaxed bass atmosphere to keep listeners on high alert, creating a dual high and low energy to the work.
After releasing his debut Visceral LP, Getter cancelled his supporting tour amidst backlash from fans of his departure from the heavy dubstep that brought him to this point. In speaking with Dancing Astronaut, Getter established his desire to create, “all kinds of music and mix it up.” It seems he’s back in a dubstep jive, at least for now.
