Deftones – Prince (Bassnectar Remix)

CONNECT



Deftones This song has been in the works all summer and is a mad mix of deep, heavy, grinding guitars with glistening dubstep beats and the amazing vocals of Chino Moreno, lead vocalist of The Deftones. I wanted to make 2 different remixes for this song, one that simply reinforced the heaviness of the rock/metal sound and gave it even more sub bass & thickness than it had before.

But then this whole freakish dubstep part came about, and instead of making 2 separate voyages, I just kind of mashed them together. It was going to be on the Wildstyle EP but since it has such a different sound from all the other songs, we decided to just give it away into the universe and let it richochet off whatever it collides with. This is a tune for the headbangers out there!!!

When I remix music, I usually remix the vocals, either literally moving the words around, or even just figuratively taking the song and deriving whatever meaning I feel it speaks to me. In addition to playing PLENTY of air guitar while i worked on this, I sang the lyrics over and over to myself, even tweaking them to change and mean new things. I began repeating “A CURE IN YOUR MIND” repeatedly and soon we decided to move forward officially and donate a dollar per ticket for as long as Bassnectar is in existence, from any Bassnectar event to a series of charities… This song was part of the inspiration for that, even if it all happend from ironic mutation and remixing….

The next bootleg we are releasing is way softer, more of a beautiful journey, so this one is here to slay. Please enjoy and pass on to your friends, neighbors, enemies, teachers, pets, animal, vegetable, mineral, imaginary friends, sock puppets or whatever, and get your dose of mutant metal mashup before the onslaught of Wildstyle hits you with the wobbles and the womps!

Much love!

    Hi Lorin,
    I danced like there was no tomorrow at BM this year to your sick sick sick sets at various camps. Ohhhhh lordy, that was soooo gooooood ~~
    I was wondering if you have recorded any of your sets. I hope so!! Gotta keep it for future generations! :)
    Anyway I was wondering how I could get my hands on your BM sets.
    When are you touring Europe again? Any chance you'll end up in Paris? (That's where I live :)
    Looking forward to my next encounter with you
    Cheers ~~

    Lorin man! :D

    Just wondering when the new ep drops (fuck yes!) will there be a poster to buy with the cd? or a shirt and stickers like the other albums?

    • Syndrone

      I'd love to see that Wildstyle teal eye artwork on a shirt! Hope he has something for us.

      • Virtueseven

        I agree! Cause I'd for sure buy it!

  • odoyle

    Niiiiice little shout out to the crew in today's DJTechTools article! Good stuff

  • Syndrone

    Hey Man-
    What do you think of Flux's new EP? I think he blew the doors off, the bass lines are so full and thick.

    …Nothing The 808 Track can't top though =)

  • Devin

    Congrats on so many sell outs Lorin! [NYE gone in 10 mins! WOWzers.] cant get enough.

  • Brooke Kettering

    so a few weeks ago i happened to notice that the number of “likes” on your facebook page was around 157,000. this blew my mind…but what's wayy crazier is that within a few weeks, that number jumped 20,000. that's insane. crazy power. in regards to ted talks…watch vanessa woods talk about bonobos!! or anything by v.s. ramachandran (scientist who studies consciousness and mind/body dualism)

  • Dragn3456

  • JCx101

    This remix is too sick! If you are considering other songs to do a remix to, you should definitely check “Killing In The Name Of” by Rage Against The Machine. A dub remix would be too sick but i bet if you threw something together, it would bang for days.
    Peace

      He already has done that, and it was fuckin awesome.

  • C.

    Hey man I was just wondering if you had the lyrics for Falling. That song is so sick. Love your music man see you at Aragon in a week!

  • BassheadVictoriaBC

    Hey Lorin and Co.
    Now that Wildstyle is released, I had to ask, any chance of that Tool mix that was talked about previously seeing the light of day? I'm still wound right up with the anticipation of this combination of my two favourite musical artists coming together. It would be the most amazing xmas gift ever to hear it live in Victoria or see it show up as a free download. Thanks for your consideration, as always, Victoria BC loves Lorin! Keep up the amazing work you guys and gals. Lorin, your work ethic and prolific output are inspiring. So much respect for everyone involved with bassnectar. Thanks again.
    Dustin

    Lorin -

    Please contact me to get Wild Style EP in Shazam for proper track global tagging & ID.

    Thanks – Charles. You can gmail me happyparts. Thank you, Charles.

  • EXiTiUM

    3 minutes into this song the beat reminds me of Mr Jack by System of Down, a Bassnectar remix of Mr Jack would be INSANE!

    • http://www.bassnectar.net LORIN

      yes i LOVE that song

  • jtee

    Hearing this, makes my ears drool for some sort of remix by Tool…maybe remixing Lateralus, hell even Third Eye, can you imagine a 13 minute Bassnectar remix of song that is just meant to make you close your eyes and lose yourself. Keep up the good work, your bass is definitely the nectar on my 2 15″ subs…I've introduced alot of people to your work down here, if you can ever book a trip to Auburn, AL please do it. If I could afford it I'd book you myself and show everyone down here what us bassheads are so worked up about

  • http://www.facebook.com/jpruler123 Josh Peterson

    i love this remix and its given me some ideas of songs and artists you should do some work with
    some slipknot songs would be very cool also some tech n9ne maybe umm eminem but is first and his most recent album, and some lamb of god or hatebreed like you did on saturday at terminal 5

    keep up the good work its fuckin amazing and cant wait to see you live again

    • Shasta

      Tech n9ne would be absolutely amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

      :)

    Lorin I am in the middle of remixing every song youve released since 2002 into 3 tracks. that includes all your remixes, and everything. my music is more experimental. but let me know what you think. id like to know if im just completely destroying something so great or if im actually doing it some justice.

      hey dude
      man, that is cool. we are doing the same thing.
      i am neck deep in several computers all open with various song files…just going bananas

      listen, i am a bit too busy to listen to any outside stuff right now, i am in dead heat to eithr FINISH some stuff, or at least make a dent in this mountain of music, so:

      1. that is great you are being creative
      2. end it on to Lia, and she can catalogue it 4 me till i got time to check it
      3. do not worry about 'completely destroying' something great.

      its literally all motions of mutation
      :)

    Lorin,

    After seeing 3 of your shows, I am absolutely obsessed with your remix of Youth Blood (12th planet and flinch remix). I have almost every song you have ever came out with, and I would love to add this to my collection. From hearing it live, all my friends and I have decided its one of the best songs you've played. Pleeeaaassee release your version, whether its free or not, I'm getting it regardless.

    BAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • Ashley00oo

    You just have no idea how amazing this song is.
    I have been a Deftones fan since 1994. Most people would think a remix with ruin the song, this remix is just ungodly amazing.

    One of the greatest songs I have ever heard, in my 33 year lifetime.

    An absolute masterpiece.

  • ll tone
