There’s no nectar sweeter than the Bassnectar and Lorin just posted an all new EP entitled Take You Down just as he’s about to kick off his Immersive Music Tour 2013 which will travel across the U.S. for the remainder of the year. Like many his more recent releases, Lorin included a note to fans regarding the EP:
Greetings bass heads and immersive freaks!
I’m proud to present a new release from my labs…
“Take You Down” was put together as a summertime jam… something deep and lush and euphoric. I started it while I was on vacation, and the general theme is basically falling in love and that slow-motion feeling you get when you plunge backwards into something overwhelming, but never hit the ground.
With pulsing chords, emotive synths, and heavy 808s, it’s a sonic follow-up to “Timestretch”, and I let West Coast Lo Fi huck together a remix.
Then I decided to include a few previously unreleased songs along with it… Of all the songs i have made with ill.Gates “Expanded” is by far my favorite: it was written like a film score, without beats and bass, and has become an anthem at the live shows.
“Raw Charles” was a little sketch I had going last year, and when I finished the “Here Come The Bastards Remix” for Primus I wanted to add something truly ridiculous at the end, so I asked Les if I could include a random piece of one of my songs on it as like an unexpected bonus of sonic brutality. He liked the idea. So for this release, I wanted to include “Raw Charles” all by himself.
And lastly, I finished “Color Storm” two years ago, and it was the centerpiece of a mixtape and a bonus track on our “Divergent Spectrum Remixes”, but never saw an official release, so I wanted to give another life to this special piece of music. The label wanted to release this as an EP, but I wanted to kind of under promise and over-deliver, so I like releasing it as a single, but giving 5 distinct tracks for the heads.
Yeah, you know, just call up your buddy Les Claypool (Primus sucks!) and shoot some ideas, NBD. Folks, this is some of that high-qual legendary ****, use with extreme caution.
