Bassnectar ft. Chino Moreno - Hexes - from Resident Evil: RetributionFor those of you out there who enjoy the dark side of music, here’s my “Hexes” track for the new “Resident Evil: Retribution” movie, made with one of my favorite singers alive, Chino Moreno of The Deftones [big ups Chino]!!

I was thrilled to be a part of scoring this, and wanted to make a beat that dropped like a wall of bricks to knock people back in their seats at the movie’s sudden and dramatic end. Chino put together the lyrics in a poem that felt like a slow motion dream, and somehow the two sensations works in tandem: falling backwards in a dream while getting blown back by a wobbling wall of sound.

  1. Been hyped on this one for a min now Thanks! Now to make another dream come true you need to get Maynard James Keenan on a track. Holler if you hear me!

  2. Aaron Moreno says:

    My head just exploded. Thank you very much. I needed that!

  3. someone31988 says:

    I wonder if there is a chance that this will ever be on sale somewhere besides iTunes. iTunes is alright, but I just prefer other stores that use mp3 and FLAC.

    • Rod Service says:

      ^THIS^, Bassnectar+Chino FTW but iTunes blows.
      I’m no Apple hater either, just iTunes.
      Flac would definitely WIN.
      I love Bass

  4. BobbyW. says:

    beast!!! now just drop that mixtape!!!!!!!

  5. marko says:

    chino should totally make a dubstep album, team sleep or deftones needa get on this sound!

  6. Madison Evans says:

  7. spaceylacey says:

    this feels like a dream, please dont wake me <3 cant wait to get lucid to this floatin on your soundscape in Greensboro. i was expecting something trashy, but this sound compliments his voice so much more. there's a wavy ethereal tinge, yet it has force <3 im hexed by u warlock!

    • Colleen says:

      lovely lacey, how have we still not met? what shows are you doing this tour?

      • spaceylacey says:

        I know it drives me mad! Ure so far :: uhuh reaching out inspector gadget style : 🙂 Greensboro n maybe NY or Philly or both 😛 please do say urs going to one.

        • Colleen says:

          alas, i am not 🙁
          i’ll be at ACL, detroit x2, and toronto. might be at pittsburgh too. when you said ‘philly’ did you mean ‘pitt’? 🙂

          • spaceylacey says:

  8. casey says:

    Might as well stop off in Seattle when your in P-town in oct. Lorin! We need some bass!! Thank you so very much for basscenter though here in seattle, that I will remember forever.

  9. Bass chick says:

    Hey lorin… What happened to your Miami fl tour???? What’s the deal with that?

    • Colleen says:

      i’m not lorin…but he has always said that if a city/region seems to be “skipped” then it means there is something big in store in the future 🙂 keep your eyes peeled!

  10. tony says:

    I miss leprechauns arising and the real parade into centuries.

  11. nick from forest says:

    not bad lorin.

    im writing poems ala John Keats. Soon you’ll be doin shows with me in Israel.

    Would’ve liked if you included a main riff dropout for the sake of bridging the lyrics, with some vocal sound design 😉

    See ya at Terminal 5


  12. Yessica Miranda says:

    Bassnectar + Chino Moreno the best fucking combination ever! 🙂

  13. Michael Koch says:

    The lyrics are great, BUT I’d love an instrumental version to zone out to while I code at work/drive — lyrics kind of distract me. Is this possible some time? 🙂

  14. OneOfMany says:

    getting a little greedy eh? No more freebies for the ‘fans’… Was easier when we weren’t numbered in 6 or 7 digits i guess… 99 cents per download must make you and apple a pretty penny. Used to like your music… Unsubscribing now…

    • tlo says:

      you can’t give out a song that is part of a movie soundtrack for free. he gives out a lot of music for free. if you’re really that cheap, you could find all of his music for free – quite easily these days! really glad to see you go, i can’t stand pretentious frauds.
