Bassnectar – Take You Down EP

Everytime I see a new release from Bassnectar on my SoundCloud feed I instantly get excited because I know I’m going to love it! Along with the Immersive mixtape Lorin also released his 5 song EP today titled Take You Down which includes 4 new tracks and a remix! Now I personally find it difficult to describe Bassnectars music because it gives off a unique and different experience for everyone individually, that being said Lorin included his inspirations and ides behind each song featured on this EP.

“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

So turn this up, sit back and embark on another adventure courtesy of the bass god himself.
