TAKE THE RIDE:
Join me on another journey through Amorphous Music – 16 new musical personalities who want to be your friend. Take them on walks, take them to the beach, hug them, tell them your secrets, they want to talk to you…
If there is only one piece on the whole collection I want you to listen to, its the full-length continuous mix, entitled “MIXTAPE 13″ – track 17 on your Into The Sun download, because its a seamless blend of all tracks into one long trip. And we’ll be broadcasting a live listening party to celebrate – join me at 7pm PST tonight as we experience it together!
More details here: http://www.bassnectar.net/2015/06/into-the-sun-listening-party/
This release is also a celebration of Mesmerizing The Ultra’s 10th birthday, so I’ve revisited 5 of the tracks from that now-vintage album as part of this new set, to keep one eye on the past as we blast into the future. It’s a hologram.
This record has been a massive collaborative process and I want to thank everyone who was involved in the recordings: Levitate, Swan, The Naked And Famous, Point Point, San Holo, Stylust Beats, Masia One, Lafa Taylor, Louis Futon, Zion I, G Jones, David Heartbreak, Gnar Gnar, Psymbionic, Of The Trees, Christina Soto, Luzcid, Kyrian & The Funginears, Wintergatan, Dorfex Bos (aka Angelo Tursi), Sayr, and Michael Kang as well as Seth Drake for the impeccable mastering magic.
You can stream + download Into The Sun here:

To celebrate the release of Into The Sun we are going to holding another online Listening Party event – except this time we are amping it up a bit!
More specifically, we are going to listen to Mixtape 13, which comes with every download of Into The Sun, and is the brand new Amorphous Music mixtape you have been waiting for! ….and this will happen Flash-Mob style….broadcasting loud and proud wherever you may be.
Just like our NVSB party last year, the simple idea is that we all press play at the same time and then join together online to share the experience, creating a feedback loop of music, emotions, and pixels that transcends 4-dimensional spacetime. Last year was beautiful, with thousands of bass heads connecting with each other through the music, and there were many magical mini-gatherings all around the world.
This year we really want to encourage you to go all out: round up every living being you can find who has a working brain plus ears, and throw your very own Into The Sun event. Flash mobs, house parties, venue takeovers – we want to see it all!
Like moths to a flame, gather your people around the largest, loudest system available. If your car has a killer soundsystem then for heaven’s sake blast it out! If you have been neglecting your friend with the biggest subwoofer in town, now is your time to send flowers and reconnect! If you have a mobile PA, bring the music to the people as is your duty! If you are a mystical being that draws energy through the power of listening to new mixtapes in large gathering, now is your time! We want this to be a happening unparalleled in the modern age. And if your party really raises the bar, maybe we’ll hook you up with a gift to say thank you for representing in such wild style LET THE SPEAKERBOX BLAST, RATATAT-TAT!!!!
If you do have a particularly great platform for a Listening Party bash, or you own a system (whether its a mobile set up on a bike or a wicked speakerbox in your trunk or whatever), go here and let us know so we can keep you on our radar: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1JDXFsY284HJn9-FWxzBQte0LorQRSLimZ9eR3ExLl08/viewform
If you want to make an invite for your Listening Party, here are some artwork files so you can do it all fancy: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ig08x5t6dvsj2tn/AAB5f8aOHVEVvFP4kA3tg1Qpa?dl=0
But regardless of your ability to hype your zipcode and throw a legendary simulcast shindig, we want you to join us in whatever capacity you can. All you need is the mixtape file and Twitter…
Step-by-step instructions for Listening Party glory:
1) Pre-order Into The Sun. Don’t rely on the internet for playback, otherwise signal despair, advertising demons, or sheer buffering madness will be your certain downfall, as you fall out of synch and into the lonely darkness. http://www.bassnectar.net/into-the-sun/
2) Make sure to give yourself time to download the new mixtape once it becomes available (6/30 @ midnight EST), especially if you ordered it in lossless from our website! Then just load it onto your devices and prepare your most trusted media player.
3)Ready your party in your very own style: gather and lather your crew, coordinate your flash mob troops, start your engines, venture deep into a lost civilization to rage with ancient spirits, etc.
4) Press play on “Mixtape 13” at 7pm PST on the dot using http://www.time.gov/
5) Join me on Twitter @bassnectar to chat and follow along as we listen together in real-time harmony.
6) Tweet your experiences, reactions, confessions and chin-stroking pontifications using #IntoTheSun
7) Plus share pics and video from your parties anywhere/everywhere using #IntoTheSun so we can all bask in the glory of your mountaintop party or sub-aquatic gathering. Snaps can be sent to @bass_network

Announcing the imminent release of INTO THE SUN – 16 brand new slices of Amorphous Music – a diverse journey through sparkling melodic downtempo to shimmering hype music to mutated indie rock re-cuts to renegade trap house to blistering bass music explosions.
The final song is a 70-minute bonus track: Mixtape 13 – the brand new Bassnectar mixtape, packed with all original tracks and remixes, blended together seamlessly into a sonic voyage (into the sun). Because why have an album when you can have an album and a mixtape!
The mixtape was developed over the last 6 months, featuring tons of collaborations and experiments, plus special versions off of Mesmerizing The Ultra (happy 10 year anniversary!). There was too much musical mayhem to cram into one record… so we crammed a disc full of sound and present it to you
Coming to your brains June 30th. Get 5 tracks now when you pre-order, including the title track “Into The Sun” and collabs/remixes featuring The Naked & Famous, Lafa Taylor, and G Jones.

Red Rocks 2015 – where to start…
I am elated, expressed, dissolved, and now re-assembling my molecules into another form of hotly condensed energy for future adventures… What an incredible three nights. Five years at Red Rocks and I still walk away amazed, surprised, and overwhelmed, with my mind truly blown.
Much love to all our mighty musical guests for many special memories: Late Night Radio, G Jones, Joker, jackLNDN, Son Of Kick, Benga, Lindsay Lowend, Eskmo, and the legendary Nightmares On Wax, as well to our live performers Seasunz, Marz Leon, Kyrian and The Fungineers!
Big ups to every single human being on the Bassnectar crew (and I’m talk big nasty quivering menacing shining loving monumental UPPPPPS), as well to our burgeoning Bass Network team and all the amazing Ambassadors, to all Red Rocks staff, and to everyone who weaved their magic and busted their asses to deliver a mind-blowing, cutting-edge production. It takes a lot of people and a lot of love to make these shows come together and I hope you can feel that energy in every moment.
And most of all our thanks to all of you for coming out and filling Red Rocks with your hearts and souls. I am clear that ‘Bassnectar’ is more than any one person and each and every one of you is a part of that. I am humbled and inspired by your energy and spirit, and hope that you found something special and meaningful this weekend. I am looking forward to organizing more special events like this in the future. Finding myself less interested in traveling nonstop road tours, and more interested in crazy immersive destinations, but i’m sure the future holds a lot of surprises and unexpected twists & turns as well
