TERROR REID – THE OTHA SIDE

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.

Smogs

After spending the first 11 years of his life overseas, Logan Meltzer aka Smogs, moved to the DMV in 2001 with nothing but a dream of becoming a professional rapping soccer star who could also dunk and do stand-up comedy. And while 100% of those dreams are still in progress, he gets to live a new one now by writing about music. Having graduated from Haverford College, where he DJ’d for OnCue, RDGRNGLD, 3LAU and others (shout out Philly!), Smogs moved to Washington D.C. to work in communications with non-profit organizations, before selling his soul to a Fortune 500. After escaping the succubus, a good friend and now-mentor encouraged Smogs to try his hand at music writing. And as the ol’ saying goes, the rest is happening now... Ride or die Washington sports (especially the Nationals). The Devil Wears Prada 4 lyfe. What fruit hates marriage? A cantaloupe (can’t-elope)
