Bassnectar re-releases ‘Dreamtempo’ mixtape from 1999
Resurrecting the youthful romantic within him, Bassnectar has re-released his ‘Dreamtempo’ mixtape which he originally recorded back in 1999 on a set of four CDJs as a gift to his girlfriend at the time. The mix showcases Bassnectar’s often-overlooked penchant for downtempo music (usually of the psychedelic nature). With selections from Thievery Corporation, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and even Boards of Canada, the mix is funky, jazzy, and overwhelmingly hypnotic. The rhythms may seem a bit outdated upon first listen, but the give the mix a chance to draw you in and you won’t regret it.
