San Francisco, CA


Each of these transmissions are a separate, special ride through the multi-colored corridors of Bassnectar mixes and sets; an outlet for the highlights and the bangers, as well as a testing lab for unreleased projects, sideshow experiments, and the vast music collection of our record crates and hardrives. We call the Bassnectar style "omnitempo maximalism" ...a shorthand expression for our musical attitude and philosophy: No Limits, No Rules, No Stopping the all-out Freakshow. At times mellow or melodic, and at times surging or perverse, we explore all sounds and genres with open arms.

L.S.D. - The Bassnectar Remix [VIP]

Straight up, this has been one of my *JAMS* since last December 2007. One of those prime cutz that you just know when you pull the trigger everythings going to erupt and everyone will go apeshit. It has existed as a series of loops/tracks for a while (bass beat, drums/fx, the melody loop, various Beatles loop, the Askills loop, all the old hiphop samples, the Lennon singing which i didnt include on here...etc) I wanted to also include a few pieces of footage that really caught the energy...

For Whom The Bass Tolls

This next transmission is just a single track, unmixed, intended for (amongst other things) DJs who want a super charge full throttle explosion to add to their sets. While the Bassnectar scientists crank away in the labs working on new album material, we thought we might toss out a couple of bootlegs or something, so we're starting with this. A tribute to one of the major musical influences of the Bassnectar sound, this mash-up combines elements of Blue State Riddim's beats and vocals...
