BASSNECTAR – DIVERGENT SPECTRUM REMIXES (Steve Aoki’s Remix and Free Download)

Tim Gauthier

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!

After that is a remix of “Red Step” by none other than Dim Mak‘s label boss, STEVE AOKI. 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.

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.

The fourth 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.

Another mix of “Voodoo” follows; this time the basitions of creativity known as BEATS ANTIQUE flip the original into an antique bass version with live instrumentation and some surprises.

We decided to include the full version of “Color Storm” in this package since it was never properly released, and this rounds out the package.

We hope you enjoy!!!! Free bass to heat up your winter bodies, tiding you over until the next full release – the VAVA VOOM EP is set for launch April 2012!

World premiere of Steve Aoki’s Ladi Dadi video, featuring Wynter Gordon on RollingStone.com!

Tim Gauthier

Early this morning RollingStone.com premiered the new video for Steve Aoki’s Ladi Dadi, featuring Wynter Gordon.

“Dance producer Steve Aoki teams up with “Dirty Talk” songstress Wynter Gordon on “Ladi Dadi,” the second single from his album Wonderland. The track’s sultry house sound is punctuated with grinding dubstep notes on the chorus, adding some drama to the four-on-the-floor beat.
The music video for “Ladi Dadi” further ratchets up the drama – Aoki and Gordon play characters straight out of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, taking turns trying to seduce and kill one another.”

“This was the first time I ever got to do action [in a music video],” “I loved the entire experience, especially our amazing balcony- diving, stair falling stunt doubles!” ~ Steve Aoki

REFUSED: They’re baaack…

New Noise (feat. Refused) – Single

 

We had a band once, in Umeå. We would pile in a van, like every other punkband, and thunder off in pursuit of friends and glory in some basement in front of 20 people, 50 people, in towns 4-5 hours away. Sometimes there would be more than a hundred people and we would later in the week refer to that as a “big show”. We were ambitious, but we didn’t think of it as a career. We never made any fiscal sense whatsoever during 7 years of touring. Like most punkbands, it never occured to us to even try. We had a scene, we had some politics and we had just a hint of artistic ambition. True to our swedish roots we got very serious very fast. And then suddenly we got good. It’s a delicate path to tread for precocious twentysomethings anywhere on the planet, but this particular bunch didn’t make it. And that was fine. Most enterprises in life are unrelated to incredibly violent rock music.

It’s been a motley 14 years since our band came apart. We’ve all kept busy in our respective endeavors but we’ve all remained friends and kept in touch. There have been offers, and lots of jokes about these offers. We’ve sort of looked down from our high horses and made fun of people who’ve just wanted to share the psychopathic intensity that we would deliver on a nightly basis in our post-pubescent prime. A reunion has just seemed irrelevant to us. Too much other shit to do.

But then Kristofer got his degree from the Swedish opera academy, Jons medical studies began drawing to a close and Dennis and David started a new hardcore band together. Finally, after a decade and a half hiatus, Kristofer picked up the guitar again. Which made David want to play the drums again. Which in turn led to all four of us suddenly making new music in assorted constellations. As all this was brewing, Coachella got in touch. There were a couple of phone-calls, lots of skepticism, some hesitant enthusiasm before one of us basically said: “– This is ridiculous. There are friends of ours who would murder close relatives just to go see bands there. Let’s just do it, one last time.” And with that, socialist fag-loving pc scumbags were on the road again.

We never did “The shape of punk to come” justice back when it came out, too tangled up in petty internal bickering to really focus on the job. And suddenly there’s this possibility to do it like it was intended. We wanna do it over, do it right. For the people who’ve kept the music alive through the years, but also for our own sakes.

We feel that you deserve it and we hope the feeling is mutual.

See you in the pit. Refused
