Straight up, this has been one of my *JAMS* since last December 2007. One of those prime cutz that you just know when you pull the trigger everythings going to erupt and everyone will go apeshit. It has existed as a series of loops/tracks for a while (bass beat, drums/fx, the melody loop, various Beatles loop, the Askills loop, all the old hiphop samples, the Lennon singing which i didnt include on here...etc)
I wanted to also include a few pieces of footage that really caught the energy of this song when played live:

This next transmission is just a single track, unmixed, intended for (amongst other things) DJs who want a super charge full throttle explosion to add to their sets. While the Bassnectar scientists crank away in the labs working on new album material, we thought we might toss out a couple of bootlegs or something, so we're starting with this.
A tribute to one of the major musical influences of the Bassnectar sound, this mash-up combines elements of Blue State Riddim's beats and vocals (featuring Jahi) with one of metal's most insane bangers ever. For whom the bass tolls is about uprising, and about defiance. it is a positive way of saying we will never forget what certain neo- conservative humans did over the last decade, even after they have left office, locked up their records in presidential libraries, blacked out all their crimes on paper, pardoned each other, siphoned the wealth of the middle class into their defense contractors and other corporate crony cash deposits. Even if the major media that they own and control tries to rewrite history, and say they are good people, or maybe the media will just avoid the topics, and supply refuge, it is important to keep in mind that some heavy crimes have been committed, under the watch of Dick Cheney, George Bush, George W Bush, and so many others. We will not forget, and we will not forget about the wars they started, the people they killed, the economy they destroyed, the policies they passed, the torture they condoned, and the personal gain they enjoyed as a result of their crimes. Enjoy this music.

Another dose of Bassnectar for your tender nervous system, ingest deeply. This round explores a heavier midtempo flavor, featuring heaps of unreleased jams and exclusives. Lots of hyp hop, glitchy dancehall, and hand swat, with the wobble knob turned to 11. WOMP! Sometimes faster is not heavier, and this is for that point in the spectrum of movement between head nodding and head banging…enjoy!

A wild ride through some of the most intense bangers from 2007 sets, featuring original Bassnectar material; exclusive mashups – including the Metallika, for whom the bass tolls’ ripper, Kinga Tha Bongo from Manu Chao, etc); and a few standout mixes from the likes of Mr Oizo, JuJu, Reso, The Cure and more.
Definitely a harder edge selection of tunes here, from all out metal- mayhem, to reggae classics, quivering dub step, bass-heavy hyp hop, ridiculous tempo shifting and even some sparkly melodic musica. Keep an eye out for the next installment of this podcaste mix series, Leftfield Downtempo Hyp Hop…a bit more pelvic, with plenty of hand-swat. Visitwww.bassnectar.net for more info!
