Getter tour datesGetter is the stage name of Tanner Petulla, an Electronic Dance Music, dubstep and trap DJ from San Jose, California. He's known in EDM circles for his aggressive style with guttural synths and sparse melodies, but as his career has progressed and his fame has risen, Getter's signatures have evolved into a more experimental style. While eschewing trends, he has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the genre and become an in-demand DJ, with Getter tickets highly coveted whenever he tours across North America and Europe.
Getter started making music while in high school, at first as a drummer and guitar player leaning toward heavy metal and rap. He has stated that he was later drawn to electronic music by its versatility and DIY spirit--he could make music by himself and create any sound he desired.
Getter first got attention among electronica fans as a teenager, when he promoted his original music and homemade remixes of such artists as Timbaland and Far East Movement on his Soundcloud page. His tracks started being picked up and released by some small labels and getting played by some big-name dubstep DJs, among them genre pioneers Datsik and Flux Pavilion. Around this time, Getter also started DJing across the country, and soon became a regular performer at Electric Daisy Carnival.
Around 2012, Getter made a career move to Los Angeles, where he released a couple of EPs on Excision's Rottun Recordings and Datsik's Firepower Records label. The latter released Getter's debut full-length album, I Want More, in 2013. During the following year, Getter remixed tracks by Barely Alive, Borgore and Downlink, and released the EP Trenchlords Vol. 1. The EP represents a Getter music project called Trench, which he devised to represent the heavier, underground side of dubstep music.
In 2015, Getter revealed a mellower, more relaxed side to his music-making by releasing an EP under the alias Planet Neutral. After signing to Skrillex's OWSLA imprint, Getter offered the EP Allegiance, which featured the single "Head Splitter" and its popular music video, along with remixes of the label's other artists. Two more EPs, Radical Dude! and Wat The Frick, followed in 2016, as did the single "Suh Dude," released on Borgore's Buygore label.
Getter expanded his realm in 2017 by launching his own record label and the artist collective Shred Collective. He also started a clothing line with friend and frequent collaborator Nick Colletti. Getter released his first single on his own label, "Inhalant Abuse" in March, 2017.
