New Year’s Eve Shenanigans

December 31st, 2008


Hello my frenz!!!!


The moment is upon us, and to be honest i don’t think i have ever been more excited about new years before…it usually passes as a Hallmark storm, but this year for me, it realllly feels like the shift into the next phase.

Break on through to the other side….

I have chained myself to the desk here at the bassnectar labs, stopping only to inhale evaporated Spirulina-scented steam and to call my mom and tell her i love her. Other than that, it has been 24-7 madscience here…sculpting a set of music that is not only magical, deep and pulverizing, but also gelatinous and flexible so i can play around inside of it.

Im getting together all the dopest standout crushers from this year, along with heaps of new material and little special pieces of sonic art. The sound system at Sea of Dreams this year is OVER THE TOP…my arm hair was literally vibrating yesterday. I have to say, it sounded WAY better with ear plugs, so do yourself a favor and bring them. I just bought 2,000 pairs to pass out, but as of yesterday there have been over 5,500 tickets sold (WOW!!!!!!!!!) and they expect a big walk up, so bring your own. Im serious…music sounds SOOOOOO much better when you dive inside of it and submerge yourself.

So the line up is LOADED, topped of course, by none other than Theivery Corporation…who need no introduction, but out of respect let me just say i have been a rabid fan for over a decade, AND when i saw them live this summer i was stunned by how HEAVY their set was. The venue in San Francisco is huge, and it will be packed with special features.

I am supposed to play music at 1am, and no doubt there will be some fluctations there, but i have 2 hours to go for it, and at this point i think i am MOST excited about the last ten minutes, cuz i LOVE THE MELTDOWN!!!!!!

If you are going to be elsewhere tonight, i am wishing you a very safe and healthy experience, and i look forward to this next year, hopefully we will see each other soon.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already checked it out, this is the new little video we edited (video pequeno?) from some of our favorite moments on tour this fall…

Ima try to embed it here, but lord knows i am not the most terrifcly web-saavy guy
