FAN BASS: PUSHING BUTTONS OR PUSHING BOUNDARIES

FAN BASS: PUSHING BUTTONS OR PUSHING BOUNDARIES

Bassnectar at EDC - Vava Voom Tour 2012Lorin reopens the Fan Bass vault and answers a classic question about performing and DJing that has been the subject of much recent internet hype waffle:

QUESTION: Hey Lorin – I’ve always wondered, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I ask this, but what exactly do you do on stage when you’re performing live? A lot of people argue that electronic music is nothing more than a DJ pushing buttons and that it takes “no skill.” I always tell them it is much more than that – obviously it takes skill to produce everything that you have, and I feel like your shows do in fact involve much more than just pressing play and pretending to mess with knobs, but could you please elaborate on how you actually do perform? I think that a lot of people are also curious. Keep spreading the word brotha!!! – kidonwheels

FAN BASS: MESSAGE & MAINSTREAM

FAN BASS: MESSAGE & MAINSTREAM

In the latest edition of Fan Bass, Lorin responds to two questions that touch on his mission and mainstream success.

Please get involved in the conversation in the comments below, or if  you’d like to submit a question that could be answered in future Fan Bass posts, send it HERE

QUESTION: “You continue to make extremely raw, highly energetic, deliciously beautiful sounds and I love it, but I feel like the message of revolution is a little distant recently. I’m all about having songs on the other side of the coin, but we need to keep the fight alive and we need to educate all these fresh new fans that I love so much. I have no doubt you are still on point with it off the stage, but I personally believe a portion of it needs to be on the stage.” -innavibemusic717

FAN BASS: RELIGION & PHILOSOPHY

FAN BASS: RELIGION & PHILOSOPHY

Bassnectar on religion and philosophyTime for another trip to the Fan Bass, where we’ve compiled another two questions into one double post for Lorin to discuss – this time touching on religion and philosophy.

Please get involved in the conversation in the comments below, or if you have a different question to posit, send it HERE. Now read on, people of the Bass:

QUESTION:
“I’m curious about the nature of your spiritual beliefs / knowledge / practices. I’m not a religious person myself but spirituality and the way that people connect with reality is of particular interest to me. I’m just wondering because you seem to be very conscious of other people and the world we live in.” – Micheal Margolis

Fan Bass: Passions & Careers

Fan Bass: Passions & Careers

Bassnectar in KalamazooLorin answers another of your questions for our growing Fan Bass Q&A archive. If you’ve got a question click here to submit it, and as always feel free to discuss this thread below, and ask more questions or offer further advice to your Bass Head family!

QUESTION:

I recently had quite a scare and may not be able to attend the expensive private college I’ve worked really hard to get into. My mother asked me “what interests you in life, what do you like?” so that we could make a plan B, and all I could think was concerts. I LOVE light shows, Bassnectar’s in particular, and I always thought it was really interesting when we got a glimpse into the production of them in your tourcam videos.

Where on earth would one go to develop a skill like that? The light shows at a Nectar concert are top notch and I’m curious as to how I could get trained and involved in such a thing. This is totally unrelated to anything, and i didn’t know where to post it so I put it here. Thank you! – anon
