Bassnectar releases Divergent Spectrum remixes for free, scares small children
Six months after Divergent Spectrum debuted we are treated to a free package of some of Lorin’s favorite remixes. Listeners beware, the six tracks in this package are not for the feint of heart. Low end growls, dubstep wobbles, and breakneck drum and bass is all you are going to find here.
Hesitant to make the jump? Scared these tracks might steal your lunch money? Do you want your mommy? Here’s what the man himself has to say about the remixes;
This pack kicks off with a collaborative remix I did with my good buddies TERRAVITA. We traded the files of “Upside Down” back and forth for a few months, and the final master that Seth did makes this one of the loudest, wildest drops to date!
After that is a remix of “Red Step” by none other than Dim Mak‘s label boss, STEVE AOKI. A definitive electro house banger with a beefy halftime drop, he has been the only DJ with this weapon for a few months; now it’s yours too.
Up next is a collaboration with Amorphous Music artist ILL.GATES who spent a few days in the Bassnectar Labs this summer building synthesizers and samplers with me in Ableton. As we worked and geeked out, we built this drum & bass version of “Voodoo”, which then became a staple of my sets for the last fall tour.
The fourth track comes from long-time friends and collaborators, THE GLITCH MOB, who took “Head’s Up” into dubstep territory, with the unmistakable glitch-bass flavor.
Another mix of “Voodoo” follows; this time the basitions of creativity known as BEATS ANTIQUE flip the original into an antique bass version with live instrumentation and some surprises.
We decided to include the full version of “Color Storm” in this package since it was never properly released, and this rounds out the package.
We hope you enjoy!!!! Free bass to heat up your winter bodies, tiding you over until the next full release – the VAVA VOOM EP is set for launch April 2012!
