Yesterday was a tough day for Getter, who, in the face of overwhelming criticism and hate from a select group of so-called fans, cancelled the remainder of his Visceral tour with only seven dates left. Booing at shows and getting objects thrown at him were the last straws of his last vestment of hope in the tour, and he offered a defeated and distressing note to these individuals, saying, “you win.”


In the face of such blatant toxicity, not just in the bass community but perhaps more pervasive in dance music as a whole, legions of Getter’s friends and colleagues leapt to his support. It was never so much as calling out any one individual as pointing out the hypocrisy of those buying a ticket to a VISCERAL TOUR show and then getting mad they heard music from his Visceral album.

Jauz, Excision, Alison Wonderland, Ekali, Thys of Noisia, Feed Me, and more had words of encouragement and support for Getter yesterday and this morning. There are a lot to read through below, but you’ll probably end up feeling a lot more hopeful for the the future by the end of it.

Hopefully Getter feels the same way soon.
