THE LOST TRACK + BONUS PACK

August 17th, 2011

Divergent Spectrum Bonus PackWelcome to the Divergent Spectrum Bonus Pack – a small collection of outakes, odd-bits, rarities, and sketches. The idea behind this collection of bits & loops is to provide something like the Special Features on a DVD… behind-the-scenes material to accompany the release of the Divergent Spectrum album.

So I went through various hard drives and pulled out a range of loops, samples, sounds, and even a few unfinished works. Some of these are earlier versions of songs on the Divergent Spectrum collection, and some of them are older experiments and older versions. There are some songs here that I made years ago, which were never released. ‘It’s About To Get Hectic’ was created in 2007, and ‘Thugstep’ in 2008, both were going to be on Cozza Frenzy, but never made the cut… (For obvious reasons… they just arent that good! Ha ha…. but I think it is interesting, at least for myself, to look back at ideas that were never fully pursued.)

The real gem here for me is The Lost Track. This is a song which I intended to release on “Diverse Systems Of Throb” but I never got around to finishing. I created it in Reason, and bounced some parts to take it into Cubase. After some time passed, I forgot about it, and accidentally deleted the Reason session. I had never laid out a sequence of it, and eventually the folder got lost in a labyrinth of subdirectories on a forgotten computer. A few months ago I found it again, and thought it would be great to release this song as a “Choose Your Own Adventure” theme, something I wouldn’t necessarily even finish myself.

You can enjoy this simply as a few pretty sounding loops, kind of like a view into my studio back in 2003 or whenever this was being made. Or you can sample it, or remix it, create your own version, use the bits in a live set – whatever. If you come up with anything you like I would deeply appreciate if you would send it to us at thelosttrack@bassnectar.net

My team is going to get together the first week of tour and have a small listening party and check out all the submissions we get. This isn’t a contest, it’s just a project, something I want to share with you. And hopefully you will share back with me. Maybe I will even play bits of it live this fall…

Enjoy the adventure!

Lorin

    Thank You SO much for this! I can’t wait to paste together something new to give back to you…wish me luck. Now All we need is for you to Freebie (promo) Dump ALL of the following as one download…Dj Lorin- World Beat Juice, Dj Lorin- Mystic Groove,  Freakbeats for Beatfreaks, Beatfreak Bohemia,  Lorin Bassnectar – Motions of Mutation, Pacific Breaks Special (on BBC Radio). I have found them All but the sources are shady, sound quality is weak, and they are All SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO awesome that  every BASSNECTAR fan NEEDS to hear them. For those of you who don’t seek out  music and have not heard the above items you really should….
     The reason I said promo is because of the legal issues etc. though myself and any other self respecting Basshead would gladly pay for A Secret Underground Throwback Pack (hell, sell it in a backpack version for effect).
     Also so sorry to hear about the vinyl, hope everything works out in the end. And thanks again for the HEAVY dose of NECTAR from the Gods.

    Ok so iv been a huge fan of the artist Nemo Boko and have had a poster of his which was the first version of the one on this page. And i had NO idea that it was Bassnectar that inspired them. I read this today and was like mmmmOKAY awwwwesome. Seriously if you guys haven’t read this (it is little but so cool) or seen his work it’s amazing. PLUS it’s supposed to be fully experienced in 3D so they send it to u with glasses. ummm…bought. noquestion

  19. Laptop Zombie says:

    Heh. Kind of defeats the purpose of me spending all that money to get a pre-order and special goods.

    Either way, glad to support such a great team.

    • Ed Basscrew says:

      The special goods paid for themselves, surely? 🙂

      The Bonus Pack was a secret until it was sent out so it’s not like you
      could have preordered specifically because of the Bonus Pack, right?

      In addition to getting the Bonus Pack two weeks earlier than everyone else, we also sent you the Upside Down remix, and the Divergent Spectrum wallpapers, neither of which are included above or available elsewhere! Success!

      We greatly, greatly appreciate your support! Thank you!!!

  22. Astaples says:

    So I’m trying to do some work on these but it tells me i have to upgrade my topspin acct?

    • Ed Basscrew says:

      Seems to be working fine – did you check your email for a download link?

    • Ed Basscrew says:

      Can you give a more concise description of what is happening, so we can look into the problem? You can’t download the files? You can’t unzip them? You can’t import them? ‘Trying to do some work on these’ is too vague – more info please! They seem to be working fine…

  25. Freaking awesome! I was actually working on a song that was going to be
    kind of a tribute to how much your music has inspired me (even if no one
    knew that that was what it was but me) turns out – same tempo as this!
    Maybe I’ll kind of incorporate this somehow! I’ll be sure to send it to you if so.

  26. SVbass says:

    • porter says:

      yah, anyone else having issues? I can only load a very few number of tracks in ableton 8.2.1 Main Lead – Delirious Dub FX 2 is one of them. ableton says the file may be corrupted or not licensed. ive downloaded it twice aleady, any ideas?

  27. Knobby_roots says:

    Yo Lorin, this has nothing to do with the lost track but i figured it might be a good place to ask ya a question…. i have been producing for a few years now, and you have been by far the biggest inspiration for me along the way. you’re music has really inspired me to follow my dreams and do what i love…it’s crazy where i am at now in my life and how big of an impact your music alone has impacted it. wish i could even explain it! but anyways, lately i’ve been getting better at finishing tracks that i’m actually happy with 😉 haha and with that said….i’d really like to show you a track. I’m not looking for anything other than just a few moments of your time so you can hear how you’ve inspired me. here’s the link to the track, it’s called fiyah. hope you enjoy

    This isn’t necessarily The Lost Track, but a song I arranged using several of your samples and some of my own odd bits and ends. I will be at your show on Saturday here in Michigan and I am bringing two new bassheads! but here is the link to what I created.

    HERE IT IS!!

    A friend of mine dropped me the bonus pack stems and thus, through LevelBound & Kris B synaptic blasts, we formed this remix.
    I hope you enjoy this creation.
    All the best,

    i really need freakbeat for the beatfreaks nectar! please put it up for purchase it is so insane

    • Colleen says:

      i believe the reason that’s not currently up for sale is because it’s so ancient, it was released on a whole other label. sorry 🙁 never say never, though!

  34. Breck Moltz says:

    Where can i find Beatfreak Bohemia? Its the only album i need and i cant find it anywhere.

  35. chucktone11 says:

    this is why bassnectar is the best music producer of all time

  36. Griffin Mulvey-Hudson says:
