Bassnectar - Unlimited - June 17


Friends & Family!

Our whole entire team is excited to announce the release of my next album “UNLIMITED” – this is a collection of music which represents the vastly eclectic musical tastes & creative ideas of both myself and many friends & collaborators who joined the project to build something unique and heartfelt. This is a very deep release for me, with much more downtempo than usual, and a lot of concepts I have wanted to finish for a long time finally coming to fruition. The general theme of this album is the unlimited combinations of sound & ideas within the creative process; treating music like a sonic collage, exploring multiple simultaneous possibilities at once and wandering through the interplay between all the various layers and options. Every song has multiple versions and special hidden meaning, and alternate endings. And each song was created with you in mind… as part of an unwritten soundtrack to a future experience where your body and mind can lose themselves in the molecules, and the sound waves, and the energy : )

I feel like I am introducing you to 15 new friends: hopefully these songs will find their way into your lives at the right time, and serve the right purpose, or enrich your journey somehow. I of course want to thank all of my creative partners & collaborators, as well as all of the extended team and the behind-the-scenes mad scientists who work around the clock to run the label, and plan the tours, and run the shows which fuel the spark that this community is built around. Thank you all for being a part of it, your passion & enthusiasm is the ultimate reflection : )

Bassnectar - Unlimited - June 17

Here is the plot: the full album is slated for release everywhere June 17, and that evening we are planning to sync up for a live interactive release party, which we are calling our Listening Adventure. Last time for ‘Into the Sun’ it was our Listening Party, and we encouraged everyone to get together in groups to experience the new music. This time, since the music is a bit deeper and more downtempo, we are encouraging you to take a more inwards journey: find a good pair of headphones, or a prime location where you can really soak in the music, and then tune in to our live interactive exchange to join the conversation (more details to follow)…

Today we are releasing 4 of the songs as part of our Pre-Order. Just like when you buy a season of your favorite TV Show (and you get the full season, with new episodes arriving each week) when you pre order the album you get 4 songs immediately, with more on the way next week, and then at 12:01am (bright and early) on June 17 the full download comes straight to you.

We also have various bundles available for Pre-Order in our store (CD, high quality/lossless download, glow-in-the-dark gloss spot poster, cotton tee, hat pin, sticker pack – with vinyl coming soon!) and we will be unleashing official music videos which myself and my multimedia team have been hard at work on. In the spirit of this album, our focus has been ‘music as art’, and we have teamed up with dozens of directors, animation houses, visual artists and content creators to produce special new visual accompaniments to each new song, as well as to many of the classics from the past. We will begin dropping them in the days to come, with features about the artistic teams who we are working with. We’ve also joined forces with a new app called FREEMIX to produce custom image collages, and have many art projects and interactive surprises in store.

So for now, enjoy the previews & preorders, the new tracks, and the building momentum as you join us to experience this music the right way. Trust us, we have poured out our hearts on this project, and you don’t wanna ruin the experience with spoilers and trolls: follow the yellow brick road and take the trip with us the way it was meant to be taken…

    A Listening Adventure…. πŸ™‚
    I love the sound of that. Thank you for sharing your deep thoughts about this album. It evokes my curiosity like nothing I’ve come across before.

  • Jacob

    Vinyl bundle?

    • not as of now, usually if there’s a vinyl release it comes a bit after the main release. you can check out the bundles currently available for order over here on our store! — https://store.bassnectar.net/

    Was the sound cloud upload meant to be constrained to soundcloud-only play back? I can’t play it on my third party sound cloud app due to that restrictions ?

  • april wilson

    So far, I love it!! You never dissapoint πŸ™‚

  • Drew Chapman

    Releases the day I move into my first home! Guess I know what I’ll be raging to when I move things in!

  • Humby

    A little too much trap, but has some good downtempo to even it out. Would prefer more dubbyness to it… not a fan of trap but this is done right.

  • Lara

    Bassnectar doesn’t drop baselines he drops intricate mandelas, each it’s own respective universe

    • Joseph Brooks Moon

      where endless vibration variations reverberate interconnecting architectural melodic patterns

  • Christopher Fanton

  • Joshua

    Trees- thank you for the oxygen in my lungs and my blood. Thank you for your fruits of your labor and for everlasting care and love.
    Music – thanks for taking the stress away
    Community – thanks for culture and commitment

  • seth

    now all we need is the bassnectar crew to do a tour run that they did back in 2008-2010.
    small venues + intimate crowd + lots of bass = bassnectar

  • seth

    Gnarkansas needs some bass πŸ™‚

  • Please please please let us buy from somewhere other than iTunes. I’m a Windows/Android user.

  • chucktone11

    babyyy its youuuuu. dont you knowwwww.

  • seth

    idk about y’all but i get more anxious/excited for anticipating a new nectar album to come out more than my own bday. BUT…. going to a show for your bday makes it that more magical. my bday is Jan 2nd & NYE360 was just… all around “We 360” nuff said… SO definitely dont pass up on pairing up your bday with a show. i personally could notof asked for a better bday gift than the show. & i was sober for all those that think you need a substance to enjoy a good time & get lost in the realms of intricate throbs of bass πŸ™‚

    & yes, the feeling after the show was just like walking out of an amusement park riding the most hardcore roller coasters.

    Thank you Bassnectar team for providing the opportunity over the years for all of us to have the chance participate in watching this community grow into what it is to date & being part of something that is very unique.

    Much love & respect to the entire Bassnectar crew as all the hard work doesn’t go unnoticed not for one second. definitely much appreciation coming from the gnarkansas crew as well as the rest of the country.

    Its crazy to look back at all the mixtapes & mashups i used to send Lorin back when he was playing at small venues and he would comment on what i would post up. funny hows time flies & how much it meant to see positive feedback from him… if only i could get my hands on some ableton projects/stems or anything to make a proper remix of any song from the past 3 albums & go completely bonkers & spend EONS on the fine little details πŸ˜‰ “hint, hint” any feedback is greatly appreciated

    If life was one big pool… I’d be in the deep end.

  • shanebasshead
