Dubstep’s Godfather, was in town, so it was a MUST SEE!!!
I (Caballo) went to check not only the whole set Lorin had to drop and people’s response but also the opening acts ( n the closing one which was a bonus after bassnectar’s gig) AND IT WAS MASSIVE!!
Glitch, dutch, breakbeat and dubstep were the common denominator in the first sets and people were did having a great time, although when they dropped post dancehall (dutch-hall, glitchhall, barefoot, kuduro-step) people went LOCO MODE!!!
Then was time for BASSNECTAR!!!
People (including me.. were jumping, screaming, sweating n dancing for hours!!)
This is how he started his set:
And it was the snowball effect!! People keep jumping and dancing more and more!!
Like when he dropped his METALLICA’s SEEK N DESTROY!!
Get that tune for FREE
So..it was a nite full of bangers!! all of them coming from BASSNECTAR!!
in my opinion – the climax of the nite was when he dropped this tune!!
Bassnectar – Magical World feat. Nelly Furtado (FREE DOWNLOAD) by Bassnectar
Bassnectar’s word about this track:
It is a musical mutant marriage between elements of my song ‘Timestretch’ and Nelly Furtado’s classic “Turn Out The Lights”. A few weeks ago i heard a bootleg by SLOF MAN; a dope remix of Nelly Furtado’s song, but his bassline was NOTE FOR NOTE identical to Timestretch. My first thought was “oh daym this is going to mix perfectly with Timestretch” and as i listened more i decided to take the mix further. So i re-tuned elements of my track, and re-mixed it into a more straightforward arrangement, laid bits of the acapella over the beats, and went to work. My buddy Sayr even suggested a different melodic idea for the bassline, and my homies at Arlyn Studios in Austin stretched and edited her vocals, doing micro-tuning and loving it up. It was a group effort, and of course it is an unofficial bootleg, i decided to call it “Magical World”. I played it on repeat all weekend and on multiple occasions my body was helplessly covered in waves of goosebumps. I was overcome by thoughts of how special it is to be alive, and how magical it truly is!!!
So..i encourage you, to support, not only bassnectar, but also all the live acts you dig in your town!!
You’ll have a wicked nite, lifetime memories, and future references for your own music/sets/downloads or whatever part you play in THIS MASSIVE GENERATION!!
