THIS WEEK WE PRESENT:
We have been listening to and following Getter for a long time, and we’re sure a bunch of you have as well. We thought it would be nice to get an in-depth look into who Getter is and what type of music he produces! Getter has been on the site a few times the past couple months with a feature on “Top Ten EDM Artists To Follow On Social Media” and his massive ‘666' VIP. There is no question we are Getter fans, and we hope you become fans after reading this Spotlight!
Getter’s Real name is Tanner Petulla. He was born in 1993 and grew up in San Jose, California. He began producing music in high school and in 2012 he was signed to Datsik’s label Firepower Records. He was eventually signed by OWSLA, Skrillex’s record label, and has released quite a bit of music through them ever since.
Since the beginning, Getter has been known for going against the grain. His evolving style of music and his personality are truly unique to him. He always tries to be different than everyone else, in order to stay true to himself, and it's an awesome quality to see.
Back in early 2106, he started to gain a lot of popularity on the internet once he started making vines with good friend, Nick Colletti. Their ‘SUH DUDE’ vines went insanely viral and really skyrocketed Getters music career along with it. At the start people just knew him as the 'SUH DUDE' guy but slowly people started to figure out who Getter really was.
In 2016 Getter released multiple albums including “Radical Dude” and “What The Frick”, and both became very popular in a short amount of time. He has been very busy this past year with an insane amount of shows and even producing for hip-hop artists. Getter is growing so much as an artist every single day and we are excited for what he has in store for 2017!
