Side 2 of the wicked Bassnectar mixtape just dropped.
The Immersive Music Mixtape is designed as a two part journey through the broad spectrum of my love for music.
While it isn’t all encompassing, it’s definitely reflective of both the wild side, and the deeper, more melodic side. I wanted to explore unique ideas or leftfield directions while still bringing the heaviest sound possible, and part of that involves reaching back into the old throwbacks & classics, sampling their magic, and reinventing them with new energy. Twisting it all up into an extended ride through my imagination…
Some of this is mixed like a peak-time set with all levels set to 11, while a lot of it goes deeper than usual; more ethereal, more surreal, more experimental.
Kind of like a sunrise set, in some strange Other World where the sunlight melts your mind.

Here also is his new EP which just dropped too:
“Take You Down” was put together as a summertime jam… something deep and lush and euphoric. I started it while I was on vacation, and the general theme is basically falling in love and that slow-motion feeling you get when you plunge backwards into something overwhelming, but never hit the ground.
With pulsing chords, emotive synths, and heavy 808s, it’s a sonic follow-up to “Timestretch”, and I let West Coast Lo Fi huck together a remix.
Then I decided to include a few previously unreleased songs along with it… Of all the songs i have made with ill.Gates “Expanded” is by far my favorite: it was written like a film score, without beats and bass, and has become an anthem at the live shows.
“Raw Charles” was a little sketch I had going last year, and when I finished the “Here Come The Bastards Remix” for Primus I wanted to add something truly ridiculous at the end, so I asked Les if I could include a random piece of one of my songs on it as like an unexpected bonus of sonic brutality. He liked the idea. So for this release, I wanted to include “Raw Charles” all by himself.
And lastly, I finished “Color Storm” two years ago, and it was the centerpiece of a mixtape and a bonus track on our “Divergent Spectrum Remixes”, but never saw an official release, so I wanted to give another life to this special piece of music. The label wanted to release this as an EP, but I wanted to kind of under promise and over-deliver, so I like releasing it as a single, but giving 5 distinct tracks for the heads
Or from your preferred digital bass merchant!
