“Take You Down” was put together as a summertime jam… something deep and lush and euphoric. I started it while I was on vacation, and the general theme is basically falling in love and that slow-motion feeling you get when you plunge backwards into something overwhelming, but never hit the ground.

Bassnectar - Take You Down - Pre-Order With pulsing chords, emotive synths, and heavy 808s, it’s a sonic follow-up to “Timestretch”, and I let West Coast Lo Fi huck together a remix.

Then I decided to include a few previously unreleased songs along with it… Of all the songs i have made with ill.Gates “Expanded” is by far my favorite: it was written like a film score, without beats and bass, and has become an anthem at the live shows.

“Raw Charles” was a little sketch I had going last year, and when I finished the “Here Come The Bastards Remix” for Primus I wanted to add something truly ridiculous at the end, so I asked Les if I could include a random piece of one of my songs on it as like an unexpected bonus of sonic brutality. He liked the idea. So for this release, I wanted to include “Raw Charles” all by himself.

And lastly, I finished “Color Storm” two years ago, and it was the centerpiece of a mixtape and a bonus track on our “Divergent Spectrum Remixes”, but never saw an official release, so I wanted to give another life to this special piece of music. The label wanted to release this as an EP, but I wanted to kind of under promise and over-deliver, so I like releasing it as a single, but giving 5 distinct tracks for the heads :)

You can stream the EP below, and get the download over in our store with some exclusive treats including a signed Take You Down deluxe lithograph and delicious new apparel.

    Expanded as defined by me: the perfect mix of going hard, glowing beauty, and fun, all in equal parts.

    • bobby wheeler

      • 4zBerg

        I actually just realized I have live video of this from Red Rocks. Watching it again gave me chills.

    I can’t put into words how well blended Expanded is…
    It’s just pure greatness.

  • SaintParty

    iTunes gave me a garbage file format. This might not be the right place to ask, but is there a way to get 320mp3′s for Take You Down?

  • Pad

    Yay, got it at last!
    Tainted by the god awful experience purchasing from Sandbag, really crappy website. Just would not do anything when I clicked on purchase, nobody at tech support, even phoned them and got recorded message. Now I have had to sign up to yet another account. I’ve just also purchased Divergent Spectrum and I didn’t have to sign up for anything, Sandbag suck Bigtime!
    However, I’m not going to let it stop me from enjoying some great music.

          • Tyler

            I’m pretty sure he’s talking about the DS EXTRAS, a collection of samples which, if I remember correctly, came with the DS album.

  • super boi

    IDK I personally liked the freestyle ep better i know its old but Breathless Feat. Mimi Page and DC Breaks will always be my all-time fav bass song.
