The past couple of years seem to have marked a coming of age for Getter. The Los Angeles DJ/producer has survived some of the stormy weather that came with his shift in creative direction and arguably come out a better artist for it. "Heartless" sees him innovate even further.

The first portion of the song bears the hallmarks of lo-fi house, a style championed by artists like Ross from Friends or Sega Bodega. After almost pop punk-reminiscent verses ring out, however, it takes an unexpected turn. The lush atmospheres and syncopated beat structure characteristic of future bass take over, but they curiously don't clash with the elements that came before.

The Many Faces of Getter

Getter (real name Tanner Petulla) made a name for himself as a heavy bass music act with singles on labels like Firepower Records and OWSLA. His 2018 album Visceral marked a dramatic departure in his sound that elicited criticism from a vocal minority within his fan base.

In addition, Petulla releases hip-hop under the alias Terror Reid. His last such single arrived in the form of "When It's All Gone! (What You Believe In?)."
