Excision: a mangled, forced extraction, quite literally 'removal by cutting'. It should come as no surprise that the sounds behind this name are just as filthy, brutal and unforgiving as the namesake suggests.
Excision shows are like no other - a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowd into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. The true campaign of bass music, Excision is the founder of the ROTTUN label, with a vast roster of allies that has only bolstered his spot as a warrior of bass music.
Entrepreneur, creative director and label owner are just a few titles claimed by American producer Tanner Petulla, professionally known as Getter. With his clothing line Trippy Burger, label Shred Collective and sold out appearances over the world, Getter is a must-have for any festival looking to turn the notch up into Head Splitter territory.
With a musical repertoire that has evolved form aggressive baselines early in his career to melodic blends of beats sailing buoyantly over waves of river and bass, Getter has also produced mesmerising hip hop and experimented in metal - leaving no genre truly safe from his touch.
Slumberjack have a refined musicality and heightened experimentalism, with their new EP Fracture being a potent composite of bass-heavy club anthems, hook-driven pop tracks and lushly cinematic pieces that show their film-score-inspired sensibilities.

Don’t expect to stand still when Slumberjack take the stage.
