Today, GDD™ fav, Bassnectar, is graciously giving away a 6-pack of remixes from his album, Divergent Spectrum, which was released in August of last year. The freebie pack comes equipped with remixes from Steve Aoki, The Glitch Mob, Beats Antique, Terravita, ill.Gates, and you guessed it, Bassnectar. I’d love to give my two cents on each track, but I’ll step back and let Lorin handle it this time.
Bassnectar – Divergent Spectrum Remixes EP (direct download)
1) Bassnectar – Upside Down (Bassnectar & Terravita Remix)
This pack kicks off with a collaborative remix I did with my good buddies Terravita. We traded the files of “Upside Down” back and forth for a few months, and the final master that Seth did makes this one of the loudest, wildest drops to date!
2) Bassnectar & Jansten – Red Step (Steve Aoki Remix)
A definitive electro house banger with a beefy halftime drop, he has been the only DJ with this weapon for a few months; now it’s yours too.
3) Bassnectar – Head’s Up (The Glitch Mob Remix)
The third track comes from long-time friends and collaborators, The Glitch Mob, who took “Head’s Up” into dubstep territory, with the unmistakable glitch-bass flavor.
4) Bassnectar – Voodoo (Bassnectar & ill.Gates Remix)
Up next is a collaboration with Amorphous Music artist ill.Gates who spent a few days in the Bassnectar Labs this summer building synthesizers and samplers with me in Ableton. As we worked and geeked out, we built this drum & bass version of “Voodoo”, which then became a staple of my sets for the last fall tour.
5) Bassnectar – Voodoo (Beats Antique Remix)
Another mix of “Voodoo” follows; this time the bastions of creativity known as Beats Antique flip the original into an antique bass version with live instrumentation and some surprises.
