Bassnectar fans have been blessed in 2017 with so many great announcements and even new music from their lord and savior, Lorin Ashton.
Starting off the year, Nectar announced he would be performing for a two night run in Atlantic City, aptly dubbed ‘Basslantic City‘. Just last week, he announced his location for Basscenter X, in Hampton, Virginia. This spot served as the home base for everyone's favorite discontinued event Basslights, in Hampton's notorious Coliseum. In terms of music, just about two weeks ago Nectar dropped his remix of Buku‘s classic ‘Front to Back'. That brings us to just yesterday when the bass god himself dropped his highly anticipated collab with the Atlanta based duo, ATLiens, ‘Interlock'. The track is out now on Owsla.
The ATLiens had the honor of being one of the openers at Bassnectar's latest curated event in September, his two night run in Atlanta aka Basslanta. The masked, dj duo have been making waves in the EDM scene for the past couple years and have had support from artists such as Skrillex, Zeds Dead and Anna Lunoe too.
The first time we heard this banging track was back in October in Night Owl Radio's Bassnectar Take Over. And since then, bassheads have been waiting not so patiently for its release. But, the wait is over, it's here in its entirety. The track starts off in a typical trap manor, with an infusion of hi-hats, snares and claps. The song begins to build with the mastering in of lots of laser sounding influences and then drops with a rap of indistinguishable lyrics. The best part of the track to us is the one beat of silence followed by a single bed creek following each drop. The negative space here ties together the track perfectly.
