cozzaalbumcover-smHeads up! The brand-new full-length Bassnectar album Cozza Frenzy drops digitally on September 29th, with CD’s available in stores on October 27. The first Cozza Frenzy single and DJ TOOLS Collection are available now at Bassnectar.net and select online retailers. The nationwide tour will launch on October 1st, sweeping through over 30 cities in North America, including headlining shows at The Fillmore, Irving Plaza, House of Blues, and festivals like Austin City Limits.

Bassnectar’s own label Amorphous Music teams up with Child’s Play Records to unleash Cozza Frenzy, an amalgamation of sound that combines dubstep, electro, hip hop, and all styles of dirty digital bass-heavy music and smashes it all into a collision of wobbling, intense basslines, and hypnotic hide-and-seek adventures. A work 3 years in the making, this rich and eclectic collection of 15 songs features collaborations with artists such as Fever Ray, Zumbi of Zion I, Mr. Projectile, and Capital J.

Genres are turned upside down, sliced into half time, and combined with one agenda: to delight your ears. While the live shows are explosive orgies of sound and light that literally turn into mosh pits, the album explores not only the frenzy but also the meltdown. Lush, expressive melodies and playful combinations of sound are just as much a trademark as the insane thickness and heaviness that pervades each song. It’s like a variety show: some freakish songs for those moments of complete abandon, and other more melodic adventures for those moments when all you want to do is dissolve into thoughts.

“I wanted to express something emotionally visceral; reflective of the different shades of sonic mania I feel…each song having its own personality and character. I don’t care if something is hip or trendy or not, I just want to give strength to feelings… this is music for people.” With a rabid fan base that grows by the day, ‘this music’ is primed to cause more than just a frenzy when it drops upon the masses Sept. 29th, 2009.

The debut single, Cozza Frenzy, features an original head-banging body-rocking anthem, where dubstep and electro collide beneath chopped and screwed vocals. Bassnectar gives his own Mega-Bass remix – a straightforward dubstep version perfect for ripping any dance floor into complete frenzy. Z-Trip’s Hellrazor Remix takes the original and flips it into a scratch track with loads of cuts and edits. Scratch DJs and turntablists will eat this alive. The single, as well as Cozza Frenzy DJ TOOLS Collection 1 is available now through Bassnectar.net, as well as other major online retailers. Visit http://music.bassnectar.net to grab it.

In support of the album launch, Bassnectar will be touring with a custom-built PK sound system courtesy of the Wobble Factory alongside special guests DJ Vadim, Nosaj Thing, and Heavyweight Dub Champion at select cities throughout North America. Whether remixing, collaborating, writing, DJing, performing, or working on constant social networking, Bassnectar’s music is the lure, and social impact is the very sincere intention. Coinciding with the road show, the Bassnectar team will be working with a community of activists and organizations to generate involvement in local issues that pertain to selected cities among the tour route.

  • arrrrg!.. this is exciting! Awesome Lorin. I can't wait to hear about all the stories of you rumbling the floors all over North America. Symbiosis was insaaaaaane! Both sets you played were fabulous and made the overall experience more magical than it already was. Hopefully I'll get to see you rock Sea of Dreams : ) Or any other venue on the west coast. Big ups man!!!! Infinite blessings.

    Dude, you have outdone yourself and literally covered everyone's musical requests from your former 'what does the Bassnectar fan base want to hear on the next album posts' a few months back. Relating to one of the questions below, 'will you be releasing the album at 12am of the 29th or just whenever? I'd like to schedule a early morning ROUT west of town as a celebration.
