This post was originally published on this site

After tweeting a short cryptic teaser that had the Bassnectar family clamoring over possible upcoming events, Bassnectar has officially revealed his return to Chicago, IL, March 30–31, 2018, after a seven year Windy City hiatus. The two-night run features an incredibly diverse cast of bass music’s most promising rising talent, including REZZ, TroyBoi, TOKiMONSTA, Ivy Lab, Danny Corn, and Bay Area newcomer Andreilien.

The theme of the spring time gathering, according to Bassnectar’s official blog, is set to “…celebrate the dawning of Spring: rebirth, regeneration, and a radiant gratitude for life.” The whole team promises to amp up all levels of art, music, interactivity, and community as well with staples like The Haven and The Gift Altar.

The spring announcement also comes as the first of four seasonal gatherings in 2018, of which Lorin Ashton presents as a bit of a jigsaw to be decoded by his devoted followers. The Bassnectar team will be planting tiny reveals and clues over the coming months as to dates, themes, locations, and line-up support. But for now:

Last week, REZZ tweeted out that “if anyone has a problem with me playing (literally) one Bassnectar tune in my tour set, you need to drink a tea and stay calm. Okay everything is fine.” Later on she clarified by saying “It’s cause apparently his fans don’t like it when other artists play his tunes.”

Bassnectar unveils unearthly second single off upcoming EP [UPDATED]

This post was originally published on this site

Still fresh off the news of his Atlanta NYE special event and the announcement of a headline appearance at Buku, Bassnectar has been focused on mastering and promoting his Reflective: Part Two EP, out December 1 on Amorphous Records. The bass music powerhouse recently teased the first single off the project, an earth-shattering track with Wakaan’s own Digital Ethos.

Now, Bassnectar shares another single featuring Dorfex Bos, which follows their initial “Horizons” collaboration on part one of the Reflective EP. Their sophomore collaboration, “Other Worlds,” while equally celestial and downtempo to its core, will take listeners into a completely different direction, instilling the two tracks with a yin and yang type of relationship.

“Other Worlds” utilizes a similar sound design as “Horizons,” with a repetitive grinding synth and “Shepard’s tone” effect that creates an auditory illusion effect on the ear, where listeners feel the tension as constant and never-ending. With each drop, however, rather than being taken down into a seismic direction, listeners are lifted a bit higher into the cosmos and gently dropped off on the track’s sublime lead out. The result is a track that is reminiscent of some 1980s Hans Zimmer-scored sci-fi film, taking listeners on a ride that goes up and down and around and round.

“Other Worlds” was inspired by a new collage from Sebastian Wahl, which we brought to life with the help of Black Lake Media. The collage shows portals emerge and unfold and evolve within and around a picture frame… a magical gateway, like the wardrobe in The Chronicles of Narnia.

On a sunny day in Brooklyn I sat down with Dorfex Bos to write a piece of music to go along with the visuals, and the ideas just came pouring out. We finished the song in 24 hours flat, with various instruments and sounds mapped to various details and dimensions of the various worlds within the collage.

Pre-order for Bassnectar’s Reflective: Part Two EP is available November 17, 2017.

UPDATE: Bassnectar has just released the EP’s official tracklist, which includes his long-awaited remixes of Eprom‘s “Pineapple” and Naux Faux‘s “Psyopia,” along with a previously-teased track ID with G Jones that Ashton premiered at Hulaween a few weeks ago.

Tracklist:

1. Bassnectar & Dorfex Bos – Other Worlds

2. Bassnectar & Digital Ethos – Slather

3. Bassnectar & Peekaboo – Disrupt The System ft. Azeem

4. Bassnectar & G Jones – Chromatek

5. Eprom – Pineapple (Bassnectar Remix)

6. Naux Faux – Psyopia (Bassnectar Remix)

After unleashing loads of new unreleased music Halloween weekend at Hulaween, amorphous bass music mastermind Bassnectar has just released the first single from Part Two of his Reflective EP pack.

The track, “Slather,” is a heavy bass collaboration with underground rising talent Digital Ethos, complete with complex synth work and his signature, seismic drops to boot. The entire track is a sonic journey of interstellar proportion, guaranteed to take listeners into omni-directional spaces with no chance of letting go until the track’s closure.
