Tour Update – May 2009
Hi-fives, hugs and headbangs to everyone who came through the site and checked out the new features, grabbed the music, and shared the news.
And thanks to all the West Coast freaks that joined us for Round 1 of the Art of Revolution tour. In the first week, well over 7000 bodies from San Diego to Bellingham got an 80hz jolt from the Wobble Factory’s PK sound rig.
Next up: returning home for back-to-back nights in San Francisco and Santa Cruz – extremely overjoyed to get back home and DROP. IT. …Then on to 6 sets in a row in the Midwest, culminating in MOVEMENT: The Detroit Electronic Music Festival, closing out the stage after Flying Lotus, Benga, Busy P and Afrika Bambaataa. Then we jet back down to LA to close out the month alongside our friends and family at The Do Lab. Lots more summer fests being confirmed this week, and setting up the next single for mid summer: BOOMBOX!
After an exclusive sneak preview on Bassnectar.net we are excited to announce the official release of one of our heaviest tunes ever: Art of Revolution, which features the legendary Jamaican vocalist Tappa Zukie and includes massive remixes by Diplo, Ghislain Poirier, 6 Blocc, and Product 01. The single is available in digital and vinyl formats at music.bassnectar.net, as well as through all major music outlets including Beatport, iTunes, Juno Download, and Amazon. The vinyl release will hit stores later next week with limited quantities available, so be sure to stop in and ask for the wax!
Stay tuned for more bootlegs, mixes, and original releases in the coming weeks!
Love and bass,
