This week in EDM Twitter: Getter, Excision, send social media into a frenzy

Could this officially be 'ghost-producer gate'? We'll let you decide.

It seems as though there's always something new happening on EDM Twitter. Whether it's a new meme, someone getting canceled, or even public beef, things get spicy when the producers we know and love speak up.

On Friday, world-renowned electronic artist, Getter, spoke up in his first few tweets since August 15 -- And what he had to say caused quite the stir among the EDM community.

It wasn't until hours later that Excision finally responded with what might be one of the most notable EDM PR moves of this decade.

UPDATE [As of 7:21pm MT on Aug. 27]: The moment we had all been waiting for finally came on Saturday evening when Space Laces finally responded to the controversy.


It all started the morning after he played Denver's Church Nightclub. Beginning a series of rapid-fire remarks, his first comment was a quote tweet of Excision's Bass Canyon recap from earlier in the week.

Die-hard Excision fans spoke up, rushing to his defense -- in the process, they were also caught in the crossfire of Getter's path of destruction as a series of more than 20 Tweets began to emerge throughout the day.

His comments sparked words from other recording artists who, for the most part, agreed. Getter then posted a side-by-side comparison of the song he believes Excision ripped off from Space Laces.

While Excision's team took nearly the entire day to respond, we had a feeling they were either consulting with their PR team or cooking up something special. And that, they did.

UPDATE [As of 3:04pm MT on Aug. 29]: Excision's diss video has been removed from Twitter so we have embedded the text tweets below, along with our screen recording of the video.

Within seconds, the chatter surrounding the day's debate amplified. Excision's explanation and response caused a multitude of producers - big and small - to either clap back, back his claims or meme-ify the situation.

Dion Timmer, Sullivan King and other artists that have closely collaborated with Excision spoke up and expressed their sides of the story.

We never saw an official comment from the Space Laces team. And while the official remarks between Getter and Excision subsided into Friday evening, the chatter continued. Producers such as MUST DIE and Dubloadz spoke up too, sharing their takes:

Several people took advantage of the situation to make memes that had us laughing into the night.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!! Slushii decided the time was right to air out his beef with a certain food themed, "bucketheaded DJ." While the Tweet was later deleted, Getter's actions ultimately stirred the pot and boiled to the surface some tensions that fans hadn't been aware of before.

The tea was piping hot yesterday, we hope you enjoyed following along on our little adventure in the EDM Twitterverse.

That's all for today folks, let us know what you think on social media!
