New EP finished + MORE Fall Dates

CONNECT



Winter TourAhoy Bass Heads! After this banana-brain mad dash of Burningman, Nocturnal and Electric Zoo, we have capped off the summer festival season with a bang! Thanks once again to all the awesome people who came out and made themselves a part of each incredible experience. This was the craziest summer so far, and now it is time for Fall Tour!!!!

This week i finished the latest Bassnectar EP, ‘Wildstyle’ which is the most bonkers collection of music i’ve ever created. Each song was crafted with you in mind, and how your body and soul will be affected when the waves of this music are crashing through your cells. We will have more info soon with regards to release, but it will definitely become centerpiece of the fall soundtrack.

Today we have even more dates to toss onto the heaping tour schedule:

Our East coast run will be topped off by a total rager at New York’s Terminal 5; our largest show in NYC to date, and a perfect follow up to the insanity of Electric Zoo & Camp Bisco! Also we have special guests Beats Antique along for the ride to round out the musical styles!
Click for Tickets.

After the US tour wraps up, we are heading up north to our dear friends in Canada. The freakshow will come a-rollin’ through Calgary, Edmonton, Castelgar, Kelowna, Vancouver, and Victoria!!! This is an annual affair, and always an awesome experience.

Finally, the California Bass Heads will get a massive dose at our home coming party at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA. Tickets go on sale Thursday September 16th.

We will be announcing New Years Eve plans shortly, but since it is not in California this year we wanted to make sure to prepare a special event to bring everyone together in the Bay Area to rock the foundations of that epic venue!!!!

Love,
Lorin

    Dear Lorin,

    I know you've only made your way to our fine venue once, but I know Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma would like its walls to reverberate with some mind-altering bass. You honestly changed my life that April 28th night. I was leaning on the speakers your crew brought in on the front row listening to the openers without realizing they were speakers….. until WOMPHWOMPHWOMPH, and there was Bassnectar. My body has not been turned right side in since. From that night forward I've been a slave to quality, loud bass. Frankly, I love your music and think it's genius. I'm extremely excited for the new EP and would implore you to make a stop in Tulsa sometime soon.

    Love,
    Kohl

          The middle tune is Sine Here – My Life

        • http://www.bassnectar.net Lorin

          thats a mix there, its a kind of electro house song (my buddy vent remixed it, i dont know the name, i just called it VENT) and then i buildup into that maniac dubstep beat called “MY LIFE” by Sine HEre
          :)

          • Jared

            well that mix is fucking beast. hopefully youll spin it in nashville. also would like to hear timestretch. but im not shoutting out. im sure WHATEVER you play it will leave my face on the floor of the Limelight.

            Stay inspiring, see ya soon :)

          Very cool, me and my buddy did a one-night trip up to HOB from Nashville, saw STS9>>Bassnectar, left at 5am, and had the absolutely craziest, dirtiest, best night of our lives

    Lorin,

    How do you feel about Juggalos? Have you ever been faygo-ed at a show? Would you ever join the Dark Carnival?

    • http://www.bassnectar.net Lorin

      SMAAA:
      :)
      i have found the whole movement interesting. i am fascinated by anything cultish, and i love the cult following of ICP, although i don't know much about it. i'm not sure if i would do well at one of their events because although my sound is really heavy, and my style can feel monstrous, i am a *TOTAL* ninny, like the most gentle person you ever met, and it seems maybe they like it a bit more agro?

We missed you at Mile High cause of that whole lame pancreas deal, but we sold our tickets and with the money planned up a trip to the hat factory in VA to see you in November after the Bassfest! yeeeeaaaahhhh. stoked! much love man

          DEEP CONGRADULATIONS!

          give thanks for your health!!!! great reminder to put health first.
          we are lucky for everything we have, despite what we don’t have.
          almost every day of my life has passed without me even THINKING about the fact that i have a pancreas.

          THANKS for the reminder! :)

    by any chance do you or the sound crew record any of your shows? theres a couple shows that i have attended that i would gladly pay whatever to hear again.

    looking forward to your southeast run. welcome to the south and thanks for coming.

  • odoyle

    The goofy Grandma's Boy drops on this track reminded me of Crazy Herbert, a ridiculous and awesome chune you introduced me to, thought you might like this if you haven't heard it already!!

    Can't effing wait to see you here again–what happens in NashVegas stays in NashVegas!

    • Jared

      Ay breh. you were at bassnectar in chicago this year? and your from TN?

      just asking cuz i just read your post. i live in chatt. i thought me and my friend were the only 2 who drove more than 45 minutes to see him that night. SMALL FUCKING WORLD DUDE

      • odoyle

        Haha hell yeah man!

        Me and my buddy Chet (both Vandy students, grew up in Nashville) whipped it up there in like 6 hours, cruisin' like crazy, made it to the Aragon right as BG came on, raged face at STS9, gave some random fellow BassHeads a ride to the other side of town (so they took us up to their room at the Doubletree!), rolled into HOB with about 150 glowsticks hidden in my britches and danced (like I didn't have to drive home immediately afterward) for about 3 hours… an unforgettable experience.

        Good news man, come find me at Limelight! I'll be in a neon pink jacket, neon hat giving out glowsticks like candy; they're doing it outdoor, festival-style so it's gonna be a wild show!

        • http://www.bassnectar.net Lorin

          HELLYEAH!!!!! we are going to BLOW THAT PLACE UP!!!!! so hyped for this tour. and im LOVING all the wild travellers. live it up, love life, be careful and take care of each other!
          :)

          • odoyle

            yup that's about the best advice there is… agggghhh T minus 283 hours!!! It's gonna be womptacular

          • Jared

            we did the exact same thing. raged all night then drove home. thats what im talkin about dude. we are gonna TEAR NASHVILLE APART. we forreal need to have glow stick warz. im bringing a thousand, fuck it!

          • Sma26ob1

            What is with you morons and glowsticks? Lorin has expressed numerous times on here and in interviews that he would rather not have glowsticks and hates being pelted with them at shows. You really need these things to enjoy a show?

          • tyler

            fuck 1000 were takin 3000 its gonna be nutzzz in there!!!

            Ok, what is up with this glowstick crap? i’ve been to several of your shows here on the west coast and haven’t seen this glowstick phenomenon…thankfully……how can anyone have the time or energy to huck glowsticks when you should be actively absorbing every pulse of that mind blowing, face melting, life changing baaaasssssssss!!!!! I really hope you are able to hit up Arcata again…great small venue…..no lame glow sticks……chico would kick ass as well!
            cheers

            Thank you. Glowsticks are for noobs and spunions.

            i used to be a noob
            never was much of a spunion (that might be open for debate)

            dude glow sticks are just fun, just sont throw them at the stage cuz thats not cool, glow stick wars are so much fun but typically only happen at festivals, but for real glwosticks are pretty dman cool when ur trippin face

          • Sma26ob1

            I mean if all you want to do is get spun and play with toys then you don’t need a Bassnectar show as an excuse.

    Lorin,

    So I made some REAL Bassnectar for you. See I got like 4 12″ subs in my mini greenhouse in my backyard. I caught a bunch of bees and let them build a beehive in my greenhouse too. I do nothing but BLAST Bassnectar out of the subs 24/7 so the noise is CONSTANT all day. So when the bees pollinate the flowers in my greenhouse and bring the nectar to the beehive they are creating honey and shit. So in essence – because I am blasting the nasty bass right in the bees face and all through my greenhouse – I AM MAKING REAL BASSNCTAR YO!!!! Best honey I ever tasted, and its all because of the wobble wobble womp!!! Ill bring a jar of it to the Chicago show bro, just for you!

    Sup Loring, Can't wait to explore the new site, seems a bit glitchy at this point….though I gottta be one of the first to get my order in on that kick ass hat….can't wait to spread the love for nectar. Hey…is there any way to get your stuff prior to diverse systems of throb….i've searched everywhere and can't find a place actually “buy” it….any suggestions……i love to check it out.

    jon

    • http://www.bassnectar.net Lorin

      hey mon
      yah the new site is still in live-beta mode, so bear with us, and please report any bugs you find

      we just got LOADS of music up for sale on the music page…200 songs i think! :)

      prior to Diverse Systems of Throb, most of my releases were one offs, singles and remixes…lots of shit was never released. and most of the CDs were mixtape style.

      after some time passes i'll get together some shit from the vault
      :)

      • Jonathanleffler

        Thanks for the reply…i think i already have all 200 tracks and can't wait to for more!!! I've truly enjoyed listening to your style and sound evolve….from something like “ridiculous wobble” (which was the first song i heard and was HOOKED) to “here we go” which is so fucking bad ass on so many levels. I'd just love to hear how it all began…… Have fun out there bringing the WOMP to rest of the country…can't “f”ing wait till the west coast is rocked off its ass!!

  • Mike-B

    Hey Lorin… saw you in Tallahassee and it was the craziest show i have EVER seen. Keep that shit up seriously. just wondering when the new EP is going to release and is there going to be a preorder. I can not get enough of your music.
