This Bassnectar guy certainly has it going on. He's soon out on a nationwide tour in support of his eighth full-length album, Cozza Frenzy, including a stop at Coachella. We danced like fools during his set at ACL Fest here in Austin last year, so I recommend hitting up one of the tour dates posted on myspace. Hopefully he will be able to fit in another SXSW gig somewhere...
Check out the new mixtape via Bassnectar.net:
"This episode is 44 minutes and 25 seconds of 10th-generation genre-re-wiring, exploring bass music through an open-minded lens, regardless of tempo, or even beat-structure… this sound clash aims straight for your body, with the intent to melt you down into a fidgeting, wobbling mess of enthusiasm and delight. In addition to some of my favorite old records and samples, this mix features several brand new Bassnectar tracks, heaps of exclusive edits, re-edits, and re-re-re-edits. We tore our favorite drum & bass to shreds, injected hip hop with some pogo-stick bass, amped up the tempo of dubstep, freaked out the gypsies, gave a nod to the dreamy 80’s and ended up similar to where we started off: omni-tempo maximalism strikes again."
