Ellie GouldingNEW BASSNECTAR BOOTLEG WOO F*CKING HOO!!!!!

Ellie Goulding: Lights (Bassnectar remix)

An amazing vocalist, currently blowing up with countless amazing songs. There are lots of remixes going around, but we wanted to give you a version that sounds like what I would play in a set, something deep and hypnotic and churning with sub bass… ENJOY!

(THIS FREE DOWNLOAD IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.)

We are happy to announce that the bus is loaded, the black shirts are ironed, and the hair is washed and conditioned. We are fully ready to rage up this beautiful West Coast, bassgunz ablazin!!!. It will be wild. It will be crazy. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, your pets will walk like humans, and your parents will praise your every decision.
We are coming ATCHA!!!!!

The entire February run is almost completely sold out of tickets. On one hand we wish to bow earnestly and humbly in COMPLETE APPRECIATION of your continued support and enthusiasm. On another hand, we encourage anyone who wants to come out but hasn’t grabbed tickets to do so now, as we expect every single show to be RAMMED.

On a third hand, we also invite you to (now more than ever) MAKE EACH EVENT YOUR OWN: bring your wildest inner freak, bring gifts to share, come ready to make new friends and be part of a community. That’s what this is all about. Yes, we have a huge show planned for you, but it’s less about the stage and more about the churning sea of enthusiastic people who may, on some distant subconscious level, allow their three-dimensional egos to temporarily dissolve as all beings in the room unite to form one strange, sweaty, semi-ugly, utterly beautiful superbeing of total compassion and wild abandon! BOOOOOOOMMMM

And now, on to some announcements:

BASS CENTER 2 is coming together nicely, we have teamed up with the most badass Ambassadors known to humankind, and have many surprises in store for what is sure to be a stellar night in Asheville!

    Hi there,

    Two questions:
    I bought tickets for the Burlington VT show and it said “with EOTO and Eliot Lipp” but I know there's also and “After party” with them. So will they be playing in your show as well as the 11:30 show?

    Also, are we required to leave before the After Party if we haven't purchased additional tickets or can we just stay in the building?

  • Jack

    Just wanted to say you were incredible at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma last night.
    I couldn't believe it when you incorporated Gogol Bordello in your mix. The entire show was
    just what I needed and I'm proud to say my neck is nice and sore from womppinng so hard!

  • It's more than a longshot, but we're having a spin jam from 4 – 6 at Century Ballroom in Seattle a few hours before the show. We'll be playing Bassnectar in honor of the show that night, many of us are going, but…the real thing would be cooler? Just a thought. πŸ˜‰

  • Hollie

    you. are. so. inspiring. see you in vail.

  • Kyle

    Last night was the best night of my life plus i got a sweet spot in the front with Jack for the family photo!! BASSNECTAR you are amazing…come back to Cali soon cause all of your other shows are sold out!

  • Lorin, when you come to AC can you play pleasure the bassnympho? #byallmeanskeepmoving forward but I'd enjoy that throwback! xo<3 Danielle

    • i love that request….all 3 of the uptempo breakbeat songs on Diverse Systems are in the labs, waiting for me to get time to remix them

      it is inevitable, only a matter of time, so hang tight.

      currently trying to wrap up Laughter Crescendo, which is difficult, because i keep getting lost in all the loops
      πŸ™‚

      • Redtail420

        That sounds pretty amazing to me I was thinking it would be cool if you remixed stuff off of Mesmerizing so it only makes sense! πŸ™‚

        • Redtail420

          P.S: Are you ready for Seattle cause I am!!

  • BassJunkie

    Ahhhhhhh I'm too late! I have been wanting to get ahold of you (Lorin) and give you a little suggestion…One of my favorite parts of your shows are your Intro's in the beginning of the show and I just wanted to make a suggestion. I know you already have something planned because your already on the road but HEAR ME OUT! HAHA …I think an awesome intro to one of your shows would be your Cheb i Sabbah – Alkher Illa Doffor [Bassnectar Remix] @ 2:55- 4:00 or so…Its just so dreamy, hypnotic, and with a lot of bass underneath it. I thought it would be an awesome intro! Think about it…

    Peace and Love

    Hey Lorin, anyword on Ultra?

    • HarbingerofBass

      Alert the masses, Lorin won't be at ultra.

  • The new bootleg strikes a chord with me similar to timestretch and I love It! April 8th madtown, wisconsin I'm so pumped and I find you to be very inspiring.

    Also I love how your productions are clean but oh so dirty!

  • Virtueseven

    Lorin! Can you please, pretty please, give me the lyrics to “select frequency” PLEASE lol πŸ™‚ thank you!

    • yes, can yu not understand them?
      they arent up on any lyrics pages?

      yah i just googled “select frequency lyrics” and a bunch of stuff pops up

      slightly erroneous, like its “brain files” not “brain fals” and its “let me ricochet some direct frequency” not “let me redirect some direct frequency”

      but watevvvvaaa

  • This is truly a positively-charged, haunting remix. It gives me goosebumps ALLLmost as bad as the lady from “great gig in the sky”. Love, Love, Love it.

    Hey Lorin, I CAN'T wait for you to play in Asheville!
    I'm very artistically challenged; I'm a science person πŸ˜›
    But I'm wondering… I've been working on a 'get pumped song' (in ableton) for summer since I WILL be seeing you at SummerCamp and Waka.
    Imitation is the greatest form of flattery is it not?
    Anywho, I would love for you to take my work and transform it
    then play it for me at SummerCamp or Waka for me. You inspire me.
    Much Love, Megan.

  • ezmars

    Lorin….Love you Words! “on the 3rd hand….” is so beautiful! community, inner freak, sharing in the 3rd dimension our beautiful, ugly SUPERBEING… love your energy…. so look forward to dancing with you again in wv or pitt!

  • Robomajical

    Hey LORIN stop making freakin mind blowing tracks. My mind is drifting away into the atmosphere. How can you handle it, phat boom boom all the time. Explosive dude, explosive.

  • Fractal Eyez

    Seattle is going off tonight!!!!! Now words can even describe the pure emotion thats been building in me for the last weeks, today was gray and drizzly, a calm before the substorming woofer whompwailing that will commence at the paramount tonight. 206 BASS HEADS UNITE!!! lets show em what we got!!!

  • jibgilmon

    Hey Lorin, I have a small favor to ask you, but I'd prefer not to give details here. Can we communicate via email?

  • Tperera89

    so I just heard “enter the chamber” on the super bowl commercial for chrysler or something….pretty sweeettt

  • bassdad

    L- Love the new track…..her voice is incredible…thank you. Just curious if you have been able to get anything going on that Tool remix and the smashers and mashers 2? Cheers

  • Peggie :)

    Lorin, hi there! I see you're going to Australia later this year. Are you planning to come to Japan any time soon? I went to UCSC and got to dance at your shows and jam out for 5 happy years. Now, all I can do is look at FB invites to your shows in SC with my lower lip hanging out. Wah. Come to Osaka, pleeeeaaasssee! P.S. Don't go to Tokyo!!! Osakans love dubstep!!!

  • Paintthemusik7

    SEATTLE WAS UTTERLY LIFE CHANGING, UNIVERSE UNIFYING, SPIRITUALISTIC CONCIOUSNESS; THESE WORDS CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THAT SHOW AND THE REST OF THE NIGHT!!!!???!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT IMMENSE EXPERIENCE!!!!! P.S. NEXT TIME MAKE IT LONGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • bperez

    Straight destroyed seattle dude..

  • Jlayluh

    can we please hear what the encore from humboldt was going to be? we drove all the way from iowa for the show, would be awesome!

  • SixpaqkCyBeR

    Any plans for an official album coming up?

    • nonstop tour means it is easier (hence more fun, more creative, etc) to make E.P.s, which i have come to prefer, just more rythmic bursts of music more often
      πŸ™‚
      new EP in works for spring
      πŸ™‚

      • You would upset a lot of people by doing this, and I know a ton of other things factor into it – but going back to the labs and off tour for a while would be worth the wait. A fully concentrated Bassnectar compares to no other.

      • Virtueseven

        Always down for new music!

        You ever think you would be down to explore sounds like “Mesmerizing the Ultra” and “Diverse System of Throb”? It's really what turned me on to you, it's that music that really sticks out that no one can put a genre name on. I loved that. Lots of people say your Dubstep these days, I just wish they knew what you used to be like!

        • He's actually diving deep into both those albums you mentioned!!! He's said on these boards that hes currently working on remixes of Mesmerizing the ultra! Heard a REALLY GOOD remix of Dubuasca at the NEW YEARS show in Atlanta! Cant wait too hear MORE Lorin πŸ™‚

      • Bhaley

        Awsome cant wait to hear your new EP. Thanks for killing it at snowball you played so much shit I had never heard before and Ive been following you for like 5 or 6 years. I loved the song I can be your freak that was such a sick drop

  • spaceylacey

    this remix is groove worthy. i told my friend a few months ago that u would make a great remix to stary eyes, but this is just as good. mutilated lips by ween would probably blow out some peoples minds. mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist of the worm like tips of tenticles expanding in my mind im fine accepting only fresh brine you can get a another drop of this yea u wish….

  • Casey_face1234

    Gotta say the tahoe night number 2 was so dope. although the speakers blew out it was life changing

  • Un Party Sucio

    Hi Mr.Nectar, I had a quick question. I'm not sure if you spill beans on songs but I've been listening to this one for a while now, I found it on an unjustly unknown youtube video but I swear it's one of the best video's of your shows I've seen, captures the energy so well.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

    what is the first song? and is there anywhere I can buy the mp3? You played it in Houston. Anyways, thanks for making music and being so genuine in your expression of life, you rock!!!

    'NO SLEEP NO!!!'

  • 91transam305

    I'm dying to know the same song as Un Party Sucio, the one that samples “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” you KILLED it at Fox Theatre Oakland 12/11/10 hands down best show ever!

  • Hey, this message is clearly a long shot, but after going back and forth I thought I might as well post it anyways, haha! πŸ™‚ I am just a guy who's been inspired by his guitarist father to follow music but I have made sure to do well in school as well. I was just wondering if you could please check out my Drum Cover of your remix to Ellie Goulding's “Lights” here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v… (Definitely watch in 480p for studio quality!) πŸ˜›

    I'm genuinely trying to enter the field of music even though I have been setting up a backup plan of attending medical school throughout my tenure at the University of Florida. If you end up liking the drum cover, posting it to your Facebook page could literally change my life and drastically increase my chances of entering the field. Considering I have legitimately “busted my ass” in school up until this point, I want to at least say I tried to chase my dream. If I didn't, then I would regret that decision for the rest of my life. Thanks so much, it means the world to me. Your show last semester in Gainesville was EPIC!

  • Lee Danger

    First and foremost, can I have your rhythmic bass beat babies? Secondly, you are amazing… I just went to Snowball this weekend and you (as always) put on an epic set. I went to the 1st Bank Center for Bass Fest and that may have been the greatest live show I’ve been to. I still get a stupid grin on my face reminiscing about it. Thank you for always showing your fans SO much love. You are too good to us and we truly appreciate you!
