TERROR REID – THE OTHA SIDE
Oh, the weekend. We romanticize it for five-days and forget about it after two. And because of that, there’s no better time than the weekend to shed your work-skin and change it up. Tanner Petulla aka Getter, a 24 year old producer, DJ and now-rapper hailing from San Jose, CA, did just that when he introduced us to Terror Reid, the hip-hop persona of the “unsung hero of underground bass.” Petulla has been DJing across the US since the age of 17, receiving initial support from genre pioneers DATSIK and Downlink before collaborating with big-guns such as Skrillex and Borgore. However, just like our weekend personas, Patualla aka Getter felt like there was more fun to be had.
Terror Reid’s new song, The Otha Side, incorporates elements of Getter’s well-known bass and synths with a rapid fire, Eminem-esque flow and rhyme scheme. As the chorus wraps up the beat pays homage to the classic track Nuthin’ But A G Thang by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg with a twangy progression of chords. This is a song for all the hip-hop heads attending pregames or parties, for all you athletes who have to get psyched up for a game tomorrow, for all of us who wonder who we are and want to be, and for all of you who just wanted to hear a good song.
