Thanks for the sick track again.

LORRIINNN FUCKING ASHTON WEE NEED BASS FOO BRING BACK SEA OF DREAMS STRAIGHT MAD ASS WOBBLE OMFG NEARLY THREW UP AND MY TEETH CHIPPD A BIT
and my baby daughter was born on april 18 hit me up on myspace snd me a message again or sum shit wen u aint busy
I LIKE ITI LOVE IT
Totally bummed I missed your Tuscaloosa show in AL. I HAVE TO SEE YOU LIVE!!!! Your sets are wayyyyyyy too sick for words!
Hey,Lorin ! I hope it's not too inappropriate to ask you,but what's the meaning of “Cozza Frenzy” ?
i know my name's not lorin buttt it means to cause a frenzy! to go buck wild! rageee!cozzza uproar,cozzaaa frenzzy! …at least thats what i think!
yah i thin everyone can pretty much make their own meaning up (for anything)
for my it meant both raging it, melting face, just letting go and exploding and freaking yourself into a dervish…thats been an almost spiritual experience for me, when the emotionsbuild up in an almost dreamlike state of hypnosis and you get to release that sense of ego and instead experience existence as pure energy…or something.
but its also about standing up for what you believe in…in my case 'give the corporations some complications' as spearhead said.
or 'rage against the machine'or 'rage against the dying of the light'
i wrote a lot of this stuff in the liner noteds of the CD…u should read em
i love how you BELIEVE in something so much, so much that you do something about it. you seem like a really good guy, we need more people like you around. i hope to be able to meet you someday, i reeaaally do.
i am the way that i am because my authentic response to life is one of gratitude.
i am so grateful for what i have experienced, i just want to give back.
so if you feel it, then just pass it on. seriously, it is as easy as that
Lorin…. it's been eerily quiet from you lately, any chance you're tucked away in the labs manically working on that tool mix we talked about here before? ( a guy can only hope ). I just have to say again how amazing I think it is that you take input from bassheads everywhere and that one guy's request can actually materialize. Just wanted to drop in and give all the love we've got to you, your shows are the musical highlight of my year every year. Keep on bringin' it. I'm a long long time musical admirer and you just keep getting better. and one last thing… cant help myself… COME BACK TO VICTORIA BC ASAP! IM HAVING BASSNECTAR WITHDRAWALS!! lol (can we hope for your usual late november / early december show at sugar night club again this year? If you do, I'm making sure my camera works this time Much love from myself and all the people here i've converted to bassheads,Dustin
right on dustinyah i cannot be in BC enough, as i said earlier other than Shambhala, i seem to wind up hittin it solid once a year, and its become kind of a ritual for meand yes ive been working nonstop…i love working i love creating, but im also working on this …other thing.
OoOoo the intrigue and mystery builds no elaboration, just anticipation?
whachu want elaborated?
just dying to know exactly what “this…other thing” is going to be… even an entertaining hint would be great.
its too big of a project to summarize…which is one of the reason its so slow to developbut in general, i just care about a lot more than just music
lemme start off by saying, that your one of my favorite musicians. I love your style and command of many different music genres.
but, i have some questions for you:
A. Why don't you ever play your old shit? I've seen you three times in the last year, and the farthest back you've gone is Underground Communication.
B. Why don't you ever play underground parties anymore? Yougotta stay true to your roots!
It'd be brilliant if you could lemme know whta's up!

1. i do play 'old shit' (remember i play over 100 shows a year, so seeing 3 means you are seeing less than 3% of them) i love recombining new music with old music, etc…i almost always meltdown into downtempo at the end. recently ive been playing FSOSF, Bursting, Laughter Crescendo, Breathing, Mesmerizing, etc…i am also working on remix compilations of both discs off Mesmerizing, AND off of Underground COmmunication, as well as a few off of MOtions… of course as time passes all of our tastes and styles develop, so we incorporate new ideas and new influences with old ones..
also i have like 500+ unfinished projects, and i have HUMONGOUS amount of content ive created but never released, so a lot of times i am playing old stuff and you may not realize
and i am pretty frequently asking for requests… you would be surpirsed how conflicting the results are. some people vehemently want OLD content and some want NEW content, and of course i do both, but…
well. no but. thats really it…i do both
2. thats 2 parts, A) UG partiesb) my roots
for the record, my ROOTS are deeper than you can imagine, and trust me i am irrevocably connected to them. it would take soooooo long to explain my roots, my vision, my intent, my values, but i have talked/written a LOT about it….and i feel extremely devoted to my goals.
as for underground parties…it is very human to evolve. and to build off your experiences. god this answer could get so long.
for one, i want to BRING the energy of what i experienced to other people, and for anyone wishing my shows were smaller, there are 300-1000 people outside who cannot get tickets… (i say that humbly and with DEEP gratitude and respect)
and if you want to do events where the sound wont crap out, and the cops wont shut it down, and you want more than 800 people to be able to participate, you cannot really do that underground… 300 person shows? EZ.big events… impossible.
you have to use real venues, but i think we do a great job of bringing real, authentic, ferocious and community-centered energy to those venues, with better sound than you;ll ever hear at any underground party or even nightclub…we go ALL out.
but shit…i could write you a book
yo anyone know where to download the scamp 2010 set?????
“vehemently want OLD content” hehehe ….dont get me wrong i LOVE ALL your material! Although i associate some of your older material/shows with some of the most epic memories i have EVER HAD IN MY LIFE (no bs)!!! May sound crazy but without your music/shows over the years …who knows maybe i wouldnt have the same outlook on life as i do now!
Much love and respect…die hard fan
dude you are my absolute favorite musician, dj, artist, fucking genius, of all time. whatever you wanna call it, its some of the best and most memorable tunes out there. and the comment you made about stuff you have thats never been released. PLEASE PUT IT OUT HERE for those of us that arent lucky enough to get to see you live!!!
NICEEEEE:D free download!!! i love metal, and play dnb, but this is the dubstep i would play;) NICE:) thx man!!!!!
if you play D&B and want the dubstep stound, get “here we go” and “bass head” and “teleport massive (bassnectar remix)”they run around halftime (85-90 bpm) and can be a sicko halftime surprise
could not download bro. emailed TECH FAIL
Stop teasing already, give us those old beats!
Searching…..seek and DESTROY!
Dear Bassnectar… big love…xoxo
500 internal server error when i tried to get the free dl…dam
hmmmm…. lia? jason? any ideas?
i try to dl it and i go to my inbox and it just wants me to download the fuckin massive attack shit
sounds like a glitch in the system…hang on
I've just tested it out – if you sign up from this post (http://www.bassnectar.net/2010/05/seek-and-dest…) – then you get the email, then click “confirm and download” – the page you go to should have up top a button that says “Download Now”
Below that button is another bootleg you can get – the massive attack one.
So you just gotta click that button that says “Download Now.”
Lorin, dude, when u came here to Forecastle, man me and my bro fkin loved you, your the best, please come back sometime!
Love your music. I am probably your newest fan and have enjoyed spreading your music to my childen, family,and friends! Thank you!
