Bassnectar is one of the longest standing and most respected artists in American electronic dance music, commonly referred to simply as the EDM scene. He is the original long hair behind the tables, having been in the game well before most of his contemporaries and amassing an epic fan base and having sold over 220k tickets to his solo shows alone in 2012. His art brazenly oversteps the bounds of contemporary EDM, pulling from a dynamic array of source material and attracting lovers of all genres, from dubstep to metal, punk rock, hip hop, and all forms of EDM (drum & bass, trip hop, etc) and beyond. His art is more than just an auditory experience; it serves to evoke all human senses with live shows that feature unparalleled light shows and awe-inspiring visual queues. Bassnectar intends to not only foster its own community of loyal Bass Heads, but also contribute to the global community at large through charity and social change by giving one dollar from every ticket sold to a non-profit, as part of his “Dollar Per Bass Head” Program.
“It comes as no surprise that when a trend or genre hits the culture Zeitgeist and explodes like trap music has over the past year, audiophiles and production wizards everywhere will want to try their hand at the newfangled flavor of the week. Cracking knuckles and diving in headfirst is one of the premier producers of our time. Jantsen takes a second look at his “When the Beats Drop,” bass blast from a few months back, and adds crackling snares, blaring sirens, and plenty of stutter to this gem, which in retrospect seems tailor-made for a trap reworking. If you’ll recall, frequent Jantsen collaborator Bassnectar took a swing at this track not too long ago, and we are happy to report that the pair are working ’round the clock deep in Bassnectar Labs on a brand new joint. Not a bad way to kick off the workweek, eh? Grab this one with the click of a mouse.” -The Untz
Bassnectar has proven time after time that he is the King of Bass by providing one of the sickest live shows in the world. Red Rocks Amphitheater holds roughly 10.000 people and he easily sold out tonight and tomorrow nights shows. Like Lorin says, it’s alot more than just seeing a show, but it’s about coming together and being a part of something. It’s hard to grasp this concept until you actually get out and see it for yourself, so if you haven’t had the opportunity I highly suggest it. Here’s a clip from last years show and stay tuned for some of our footage from both nights after the events are over. Stay Crunchy Peeps!!
