Bassnectar – Dreamtempo (1999 Mixtape Re-Release)
Well, I am back after a week of disappearing… Offering my work to the real world. Before that week of work though, I got to experience one of the greatest live shows in the electronic realm that I have ever seen. That performance was by none other than Lorin himself. Mr. Bassnectar. His set at Spring Awakening was mind boggling. My favorite part was him dropping the first track off his Freestyle mixtape, which I used in my very own festival trap mix. I will let Lorin describe what you’re about to get yourself into.
I’ve been wanting to re-release this for a long time… This was a mixtape I recorded in one take on four CDJs back in 1999, summarizing my love for thick, heavy, hypnotic downtempo music: ethereal melodies, weird loops, funky acid jazz, trip-hop, and everything left field of center. Musically, it’s a collection of songs which are very special to me. Many of them were once rare treasure on white-label vinyl, or scavenged during endless hours of crate-digging, or given to me by friends, or something I had heard another DJ drop during some awesome sunrise set, out in a forest in one of our many free outdoor parties.
