Bassnectar teams with Louis Futon and Zion I on ‘Sideways’
Bassnectar‘s long-awaited Into The Sun is nearing the final moments before its official release, and just before the hotly-anticipated EP from the veteran mayhem maker is delivered, another hell raiser from the collection is gracing your ears early. Enlisting Philly-based producer Louis Futon and Oakland rap legends Zion I on his latest, Bassnectar drops another bomb, this time on “Sideways.”
Trippy melodies flutter around mean-mugging vocal spits and spastic sample chops, all muffled out by stomping bass hits on this bounce-ready selection as Bassnectar and Futon twist a bombastic hip-hop beat into festival-primed trap. Wiry accents riff over Bay-bred spits and heavy-handed drum breaks on this grimy three-headed monster.
