Starting the year strong is an understatement. Bassnectar contributed a ferocious array of dubstep-infused tracks to 2011 and already with just Today, he has got enough to please our ears releasing remixes/reworks from Divergent Spectrum by Steve Aoki, The Glitch Mob, Terravita, ill.Gates, and Beats Antique… ENTIRELY FOR FREE.

Lorin tells us more about the origin of each track:

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!

In this new iteration, Upside Down features an aggressive amount of filth and a renewed drop that extends the song to a bigger banger than its predecessor making it darker, heavier and most of all, louder.

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.

And not surprising, Steve Aoki delivers again. While I can’t say the same about his recently released album, the established Los Angeles producer brings the long and pronounce marching big room synths to the table. The result is a strong electro track full of enough bounce to please a dancefloor.

The third 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.

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.

Another mix of “Voodoo” follows; this time the bastions 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!!!!
