String Cheese Incident’s Michael Kang Reunites with Bassnectar at Electric Forest

Bassnectar, who tends to have tracks that cater dramatically to various moods – went downtempo psychedelic with his buddy Michael Kang from The Stringe Cheese Incident this past weekend during his headlining set at Electric Forest in Michigan. The duo worked together on a track called “Dubuasca” that was on his 2004 album, “Diverse Systems of Throb.” Check out a live version below – as well as the photo and tweet from Electric Forest's Twitter account.

Bassnectar discussed the influence of Kang in the interview with Relix last year by saying:

Not only did Michael Kang help, but also I don’t think it would have happened without him. I have tons of friends who are in jambands and tons of friends and fans who love jambands. Most of my crew is some follower of some jamband and, like I said, I don’t think Bassnectar would be the touring entity it is without the jamband scene—specifically without Michael Kang and Madison House and also STS9 and the Disco Biscuits and on and on. Fully giving that respect where it’s due, my ears don’t love [that music] but I feel terrible saying that because I love the people. What I like about it is the scene, the community, the fanaticism and the intelligence of the listeners. That kind of supportive underground didn’t feel any different than my supportive underground, which was the death metal and punk rock underground.

String Cheese Incident welcomed plenty of artists to jam with them over the weekend including Skrillex. Bassnectar, meanwhile, has the new album “Into The Sun” dropping TOMORROW. Check out more info on Bassnectar's website here.
