ill.Gates & Bassnectar - "Expanded"

The dynamic duo have teamed up again to bring us another mind-blowing ethereal soundscape of heavy lo-fi synths and stereo-panned bass lines. It's been a little while since these world-touring DJs have produced a song together, the last one released on Bassnectar's album Vava Voom over a year ago.

Self-described as "omnitempo maximalism", the newest collab perfectly blends the styles of both Bassnectar and ill.Gates. The growling bass in the foreground is symbolic of Bassnectar's style of hard-hitting melodic dubstep reese, while the arpeggiated semitones of tube-amp modulated keys speak volumes to the ill.Methodology sound. Guess that's what happens when the world's foremost Ableton masters come together. You can always expect something massive. If you like "Expanded", we highly recommend checking these out:
