Electronic musician and producer, Bassnectar (Lorin Ashton), has returned to the road with his critically acclaimed touring outfit in support of his 2011 LP release, Divergent Spectrum. Bassnectar just played a sold-out show here in San Diego last Saturday night and had people passing out fliers with a link to download his “secret” new mixtape called Color Storm Remixtape. His management sent this to us yesterday and requested for it not to be posted until today at 11:00am, but it leaked so much from the SD show that they sent a follow-up saying to post it whenever. Here’s a message that Bassnectar released with the new remixtape:
Sorry it has taken me a year to throw together another remixtape for your listening pleasure, but I am excited to announce… It is finished, processed, and about 2 or 3 clicks away!
The Color Storm Remixtape is 30 minutes of music: some completely unreleased, and some classic smashups you have been requesting for eons. This mix is designed to accompany your adventures with us over the days and nights to come. Week one of tour was utterly off the hook, and it has only just begun. Can’t wait to see the rest of you out on the wild wild road!
If you plan on seeing us this Fall and don’t want it to cost you an arm and a leg (scalpers made bank off of bass heads last spring!) you had better grab your tickets before the events sell out. We are also so grateful to be featuring the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, Z-Trip, Dan Deacon, EOTO, Bonobo, Big Gigantic, Amp Live, Ana Sia, Superdre, and DJ Laura! Check out your event listing to learn about the fantastic support for your event at www.bassnectar.net/tour
