Getter’s Youtube seems emptier now than it did a week ago, and the universe is definitely less funnier.
Copyright strikes on SoundCloud have affected a number of producers in the past. Now, they cause turmoil and hell for Youtube creators.
If you haven’t been a devoted subscriber of Getter’s What The Frick tour vlog, it seems counterproductive to even consider hitting the subscribe button. More than half of his outrageously hilarious vids have been nixed due to background music.
On Jan. 25, Getter tweeted:
It is a huge bummer and an even bigger buzz kill for all who follow his hilariousYoutube channel. Rather than going agro on the entire Youtube platform, he chose to comply and gutted his channel.
Not only are false copyright claims running rampant all over Youtube; it is nearly impossible to resolve them thanks to Youtube’s current polices. Creators are required to reach out to the claimant to request the claim to be resolved. To add insult to injury, the claimant has the right to resolve to not resolve the claim made.Fabulous.
Anyone even remotely active in the Youtube creator community knows the platform’s copyright system needs a major overhaul. Even stipulating that the content in your video may not belong to you does not defend you against the backwards and outdated copyright laws.
Getter made all a bit teary-eyed when he updated Twitter that his infamous channel was ka-put. We feel for you, dude.
With many videos on Youtube with background belonging to other artists, producers or creators, it seems that Youtube will become obsolete as many are seeking new domains for their content.
It seems impossible to skirt around these ridiculous copyright strikes, and it is making it difficult to maintain channels with heavy foot traffic. Youtube is most definitely the recipient of the “Hater of the Year Award.”

Getter’s Youtube channel is a vast wasteland at this point, however you can still find his ridiculousness on his other popular social media sites. Hopefully in the future, copyright laws chill out.
Superstar DJ, Diplo is under speculation as his sexuality comes into question.
A recent Tw6itter ‘back-and-forth’ between the multi-Award winning artist and a fellow @User, have awaken suspicions aimed towards the nature of Diplo’s sexual orientation.
What seemed like a very casual, conversational tweet, turned into a rather ‘short’ twitter joust, after ThomasWesleyPentzJr. ,(Better Recognized As) Diplo, correlated popular TV Series Gossip Girl’s fictional character, BlairWaldorf to leading character TonySoprano.
Soon after, anotherTwitterfollower responded, tweeting: “Y’all sure he is str8?”
Diplo wasted no time clapping back in Diplo-like fashion with “Masculinity is a prison.” Arguably one of his deepest yet complex tweets to date for sure many struggles to decipher the meaning behind these words.
A few other circumstances have fueled speculation concerning Pentz’s personal life. Fathering two children with ex,Kathryn Lockhart, Diplo has been seen immersed within the LGBTQ community. Diplo’s advocacy for LGBTQ rights is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed. He famously shared a kiss with Brazilian drag queen,Pabllo Vittar, in their “Entao Val” music video, causing Twitter mayhem. This is not the first time he’s caused a buzz as he has openly referred to himself as “half-gay” in a similar Twitter exchange that took place back in 2016.
EDM is a culture that embraces not just the many music and festivallovers butthe artists. It honestly doesn’t matter whatDiplo’s sexual preferenceis or what he identifies as. His true fans see him as a symbolof diversityand acceptance.

It’s IWD, and what kind of day would it be if we didn’t show a little love to our Damsels of the Decks?
With so many Femme Fatals on the rise in the EDM world, (Rezz, Alison Wonderland and Toki Monsta to name a few) there is no doubt that women are making their territorial mark on house music.

Watch Georgia Mos slay the judges on Top DJ below:
Georgia Mos has definitely developed a style all her own with her music, evident in songs like her 2018 track “See the Light” and her most recent track “Maya“.
DJ Femmini si Uniscono!
The DJ world is full of testosterone, which in the hard hitting world of Riddim, it’s deemed somewhat essential. But damn it if it doesn’t feel good to see Female DJs wreck decks just as violent as the guys.
I can’t wait to hear (and see) more of what Georgia Mos brings to the big ol House table. And I’m sure the rest of the house heads eagerly await her next show.
