Bassnectar - Ugly ft. Amp LiveHello Bass Heads!

I am excited to announce that I’ve finally finished polishing off the last few micro-details of the next release, an 11 track ride on a bass rollercoaster called “VAVA VOOM”!!!! Official release date is set for April 10, but there will be many updates, videos, giveaways etc along the way, so stay tuned…

Right off the bat, we want to let the ugliest kid ride first, because ugly is beautiful, and sometimes we like our music rugged, raw and berzerk. I teamed up with Amp Live and we created a little banger to express how much we love it when music gets nasty.

And for those of you who want the prettier side of things, the full 11 track record has plenty of beauty & downtempo, including a 2012 updated remaster of Laughter Crescendo

See you all soon!!!!

    Lorin, you are absolutley amazing! You inspire me to do so much in this wierd thing called life. The sounds you create help me escape into a different place, a place where i can trueley not have a care. In my opinion you are one of the greatest musicians of our generation. Thank you for everything, cant wait for vava voom! I know it will be another great addition to your variety of sounds! Cant wait to see you in Norfolk and Richmond, hopefully one day i will be lucky enough to meet you, BRING THE BASS! Jeremy

  17. robot_bass says:

    i love how the ‘ugly’ artwork on this page is rendered more blue than the other version, the pink-ish one 🙂
    you guys have some awesome graphic designers on your hands

  18. Steph says:

    lol, awesome.  this song made me laugh… :).  im not sure if thats what
    it was supposed to do, but i like it.  I got this big cheezed out
    stoner-like grin on my face that just wouldn’t stop.  its appropriately
    titled, and definitely weird– in a good way.  It also has this strangely
    lurking old school vibe to it, which gave me some pretty cool nostalgia
    & brought me way back, like to the late 90’s, early 2000’s…. 
    haha. 🙂  thanks man.


  19. Dubstepfreeq says:

    • Ed Basscrew says:

      It would have arrived over a week ago so it’s probably buried in your inbox… Otherwise, email me as Leslie explained.

    Jesus Christ! The Indy show is going to be legendary. Fresh Beats on the first night of a new tour. This track is seriously bringing the excitement to a new level.

  28. basshead says:

  29. basshead says:

    come on come on come on!!!

  30. BobbyW. says:

    you should deff put the va va voom preview album on your main news feed as well!!! going to be the 2012 cd of the year!!!!!! not to mention my 2012 anthems!!! ive already worn the previews out cant wait to hear the whole songs!! the song with tina malia is going to be a favorite just like under water!!! the jantsen song you played at nye i duno what else to say & every other song on there is a banger as well!! the way you transitioned the songs is hilarious also!! “& they going gorillaz.. i dont even know what that means”… hahahaha “why are your kids so happy.. we just got back from chuckee cheese’s!!!” great shit lorin april 10th is too long away as well as 4.20 & 4.25!!!

  31. At both Ultra and unofficial basscenter 6 (Knoxville) you played the same song before Ugly each time. It’s been stuck in my head ever since I left Miami, and I went completely ape shit to it standing next to Dylan when you dropped it in Knoxville. Can you please please please just tell me what artist created that monstrosity? It took me nearly a year after your first Ultra performance to figure out Playing the Villain, and I would hate to try to wait that long with this track.
