Barely a year has passed since Bassnectar dropped his seventh album Noise Vs Beauty and he’s back with a brand new bass odyssey…
As revealed on his blog last week, Lorin Ashton describes Bassnectar – Into The Sun as “A mutant mixtape of ‘all original’ remixes, songs, collaborations and concoctions – basically a super-album, jam-packed with 16 tracks plus a 75 minute long continuous mix. A soundtrack for your summer road trips, for tripping around & exploring, for love making, for friend making, for enjoying however you wish!”
We’ll buy that description. Tapping into his yearly mixtape tradition, the concept of Bassnectar – Into The Sun will be familiar with his loyal fanbase and is set to include a selection of previously unreleased tracks, remixes and updates on tracks from his seminal album Mesmerizing The Ultra which is 10 years old this year.
A standard sign off here would be to suggest that Bassnectar is on a roll right now. But this is business is usual for one of the game’s most hard touring, deep thinking and creatively daring characters. Check the full five tracks (four in the Into The Sun playlist and an immense headphone-primed remix of The Naked And Famous) and full tracklist from Bassnectar – Into The Sun below.
