Bass fans! It’s been SOOOOOO long since I’ve had a chance to put together a good mix for your ears. I finally got the opportunity to do so when the Bassnectar Europe Tour swung through London.

We dropped by the BBC and Annie Nightingale was kind enough to play the mix before the show at Fabric. This is a live mix – there are many samples, loops, remixes & mashup bits, but the basic tracklist is below.

IDJ Mixtape 2010

Welcome to another Bassnectar Transmission.

This episode is 44 minutes and 25 seconds of 10th-generation genre-re-wiring, exploring bass music through an open-minded lens, regardless of tempo, or even beat-structure… this sound clash aims straight for your body, with the intent to melt you down into a fidgeting, wobbling mess of enthusiasm and delight.

In addition to some of my favorite old records and samples, this mix features several brand new Bassnectar tracks, heaps of exclusive edits, re-edits, and re-re-re-edits. Lot’s of re. Lot’s of mix. Lot’s of edits. We tore our favorite drum & bass to shreds, injected hip hop with some pogo-stick bass, amped up the tempo of dubstep, freaked out the gypsies, gave a nod to the dreamy 80’s and ended up similar to where we started off: omni-tempo maximalism strikes again.

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.
