Yeahhhhh! Boombox king, Bassnectar has just dropped a super hot mixtape he did for the next issue of the International DJ Magazine. First public mixtape by Lorin in two years. Make your ghetto blasters, car sound systems and ipods ready for the bass force to be unleashed on you. The mix is very Bassnectar-centric, including lots of the re-re-tweaked versions by the man himself and what is surprising for me personally - quite a lot of drum'n'bass stuff . 

Lorin says: "Welcome to another Bassnectar Transmission. This episode is 44 minutes and 25 seconds of 10th-generation genre-re-wiring, exploring bass music through an open-minded lens, regardless of tempo, or even beat-structure… this sound clash aims straight for your body, with the intent to melt you down into a fidgeting, wobbling mess of enthusiasm and delight. In addition to some of my favorite old records and samples, this mix features several brand new bassnectar tracks, heaps of exclusive edits, re-edits, and re-red-re-edits. Lot’s of re. Lot’s of mix. Lot’s of edits. We tore our favorite drum & bass to shreds, injected hip hop with some pogo-stick bass, amped up the tempo of dubstep, freaked out the gypsies, gave a nod to the dreamy 80’s and ended up similar to where we started off: omni-tempo maximalism strikes again. Enjoy the ride."

Anyway peeps, cop it, you know this shit is good. And let me tell you this is just a soft prelude to an ultra heavy package dropping very very soon on Bassnectar.net, namely Cozza Remix Pack vol.1 including remixes by e.g. Robot Koch, Stagga, Son of Kick, RJD2 and others.
