Pluto Era – Album Review & Exclusive Mix

Pluto Era - Exclusive Mix

Written By Kyle Taylor

Authentic peculiarity is the natural state of mind of musician Dan Getz, a.k.a. Pluto Era. Just 21 years old, the Philadelphia producer houses a mind teeming with mellifluous ideas. As the project reaches its one-year anniversary since inception, Pluto Era prepares to unveil his latest creation: the Schizoid EP. Dropping March 27th on acclaimed Adapted Records, this newly assembled compilation of noise sinks its teeth into glitch percussion breaks, polished quirks of sound design, and overall composition that disproves the need for a traditional approach.

The opening track “Psychedelic Warlord” wastes no time easing into the jarring, experimental breadth of work that infiltrates the eardrums. A dastardly accelerato within the production introduces the EP, immediately spinning any preconceptions of the release’s content far off their axes. The remaining four tracks of Schizoid are no more subtle. A dense paradigm of eclectic audio production unravels across shifting tempos, as each track gives a lesson in Pluto Era’s proficient versatility. Such is only compounded by a clear ability to adjust and work with an open-source template through collaborations with New York emcee/vocalist Rasp-5 (“Metamorphosis”), and fellow producer Cut Rugs (“Terra Sirenum”).

ABOUT THE ARTIST

pluto LunaLight2016Dan Getz has not wasted a single breath since sinking his talents into the Pluto Era project. Conceived in 2015 in Philadelphia, the project pieces together classical era composition format with a forcibly open awareness to the possibilities of modern production. Reveling in the farthest and most abstract depths of sound design, Pluto Era was quick to raise eyebrows with his debut single “Grotter”, which has accrued well over 30,000 plays on Soundcloud in under a year’s time. Cultivating an impressively multi-faceted sound with seemingly natural ease, Pluto Era boldly juxtaposes elegant harmonies against razor-sharp, and irrefutably mechanical sound design. Perhaps even more impressive however is Getz’s clear grasp on song-writing techniques and complexity. Adamantly avoiding cliche dancefloor formulas, Pluto Era creates his works like that of a true composer, constructing elaborate journeys into and throughout sound.
