Bassnectar drops off a fresh new remix of his track "Vava Voom featuring Lupe Fiasco". He said that he finally had time to remake the track into what he was orginally intending to do with it, before layering to many things. Honestly it has fresh trap sounding hip-hop vibe. Would love to hear Bassnectar make some more tracks like this one. BONUS: He also dropped off his remix of "Weed Wid da Macka" by Modeselektor & Ninjaman which has a chaotic jungle vibe the thumps hard. Find some good speakers, get your tribal rage on. enjoy! Bassnectar [...]

In the 90s he embodied the essence of underground, but by 2002-2003 Lorin Ashton aka Bassnectar reached an intense international touring schedule, performing about 150 nights out of the year, a grueling feat for even the most creative and dynamic of artists. Now in 2012 he continues to milk the sweet honey of his bass heavy, dubby, and radically unique style to the fullest degree, currently on his Vava Voom tour for his newest album . His grounded, warm presence was a breath of fresh air amid the myriad of [...]
Another collabo for Lupe and Lorin. Mind-bending visual! "Lightspeed.. Engage."
Earlier this year , we announced that Bassnectar aka Lorin Ashton would be going on tour to promote his newest album 'VAVA VOOM'. Sadly, he won't be making a stop in NYC until the New York edition of Electric Daisy Carnival May 18-20 BUT if you're a hardcore basschaser (or even only a recent fan), you're definitely going to want to check out his Bass Center V at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA tomorrow evening. Bass Center V boasts a pretty ridiculous lineup spanning over EIGHT HOURS including A-Trak , VibeSquaD , [...]

This Saturday, Patchwork and Turban (the guys who brought you the now infamous secret Skrillex show back in February) are teaming up to bring you an epic night headlined by Colorado-based DJ and producer Jansten . Jansten is an incredibly strong presence in the EDM scene because of his unique sounds influenced by a variety of genres such as jazz, blues, funk, hip hop, and more. He has collaborated with some big names like Propatingz , and most recently with Bassnectar on his track ' What (feat. Jansten) ' on ' VAVA [...]
Bassnectar is a DJ well known for his prolific releases and closeness to his own following. "Vava Voom" , his ninth LP since 2001, continues to explore the same sounds and themes with an expected familiarity that is quickly becoming predictable. Twisting drum and bass, dubstep and hip-hop into a moray of driving dance music, a style that has spawned a million imitators in the past few years. The opening and titular track, "Vava Voom" , features the impeccable rapper Lupe Fiasco . A known Bassnectar [...]
Bassnectar , to me, is an entity that seems to enjoy lurking on the edges of fame. He could easily headline larger festivals, yet he eschews the greater spotlight for (slightly) smaller stages. His shows are legendary, one performance in Red Rocks racking up over $100000 in sound pollution fines for bringing his own speakers to an event. In spite of all this, many only know him from his brilliant remix of Ellie Goulding's 'Lights', which is an excellent song in its own right, but is by no means representative of Bassnectar's extensive library of work. [...]
Lorin Ashton is a living legend. As any basshead knows, that's all that really needs to be said when it comes to Bassnectar. Once again the man himself has put his musical prowess on wax in delivering yet another full length, bass-heavy album. As he did in Divergent Spectrum, Lorin succeeds in covering the entire [...]
A few of my favorite new releases this week, including the latest from M. Ward and Amadou & Mariam, some standup from the very funny Donald Glover, and the highly anticipated debut LPs from Alabama Shakes and Kishi Bashi (my personal favorite this week). As always, be sure to check out Largehearted Boy , Amoeba Music , and KEXP for a whole lot more of this week's musical offerings. [...]

He even honors American rockers Pennywise witha Pennywise tribute. Check out all the 11 tracks below, and purchas it through iTunes or [...]
If you missed my review of Bassnectar’s set at Ultra 2012, check it out here . Shit was absolutely insane! OK! Bassnectar is about to drop a new album April 10th and people are already giving it high praise. After the success of Divergent Spectrum, featuring his remix of Lights by Ellie Goulding, Bassnectar is attracting worldwide attention and growing his fanbase at an exorbitant rate.

Today I'm stoked to bring you the newest collaboration from one of the kings of music and one of the sickest rappers. Bassnectar teamed up with Lupe Fiasco, something we knew was coming ever since Lupe went in over the Lights (Bassnectar Remix). Well this track is MASSIVE and filled with a ton of energy and bass.

Thie is the first track off his upcoming Vava Voom EP, which you can [...]
