Bassnectar – Cozza Frenzy + Fever Ray Remix + Tour Dates

So, to be honest, I have hesitated about posting this for a little while now. I'm a huge Bassnectar fan, but mainly the older stuff he did before 'Underground Communication'. That album threw me off, (except 'Verbing the Noun', that track was sick.) and I was about to say to hell with it. I read post about his new album "Cozza Frenzy" that is about to get released, and I saw he was coming to Miami for a show, so naturally, I said "Hey let me see what this cat is up to." I'm glad I did, since I gripped the Fever Ray remix he did, and you can get it too at the bottom of this page. I would, since listening to it once got me back into a Bassnectar frenzy all by itself. You can also listen to the title track from his new album below.

Bassnectar is a freeform electronic music and social experimentation project based in San Francisco, California. Primarily a music project of Lorin Ashton, Bassnectar is also accompanied by various collaborators. Ashton describes Bassnectar's sound as "omni-tempo maximalism," by which he means combining beats and basslines with music of any or all speeds, time signatures, rhythms, and sound source. The sound gravitates toward heavy tempos, playing with double time and half time, and using electronic methods to embellish and reinforce other styles of music.

On the release of his new album, he dropped this:

"Coming at you live from an undisclosed bunker deep in the forests of California. I've had to take a getaway mission before i spontaneously combusted… this summer has literally been the hardest i have *EVER* worked in my earthly life. hands down. (i loved every second of it)

After the mind-frollick that was my 12th year at Burning Man, i felt literally reborn as i returned home. This had less to do with the desert, and more to do with the fact that the day i left to go off-grid, i was able to turn in the final master of the brand new CD: 15 wicked tracks i have been polishing, re-polishing, re-mixing, re-mastering, re-assessing, re-sampling, re-ree-ing, and re-loving over and over for about 3 years, plus a few brand new spur-of-the-moment last minute additions and left turns. Woot!

Not only does it feel so good to be DONE, to have finished, and released this huge churning pulse of creative ideas, but i must say i reallly realllllly love this music! I am so excited to share it with anyone who may enjoy it, and as far as i can tell it will be released digitally (iTunes, beatport, all the digital retailers, and also direct at bassnectar.net where we will have loads of bonus versions, special features, and Optional Endings) on October 1, with the CD following a few weeks later. [released as a split between by label AMORPHOUS MUSIC, and SF's brand new CHILD's PLAY RECORDS]

Special CDs will be available at the shows, which kick off October 1st and run pretty much solid into mid December (but i will have more information on that in a dedicated blast of words, maybe next week).

First, of course we have 2 killer shows, both in California (West Beach Music Fest, and the Symbiosis Gathering) which i will also make a dedicated post for.

This is really just a letter to say hi, kind of a written HUG, to everyone out there who has shared so much this year (and years past of course!). I really feel like i just gave birth to a child, and i am immensely glad it is over, i am totally glowing, and excited and feeling free to re-invent myself another time."


So with all that said, if you get a chance , go see the dude play, its a sight for sure. Also, get some of the new tunes, and especially check out this remix.
