After the craziness that was this weekend of Bassnectar's Freestyle sessions, Bassnectar has officially released his mixtape “Tempo of Dreams“. Links to this mixtape have been floating around but now we have the full, high-quality version of the mixtape. Bassnectar dropped this mixtape to commemorate the 20-year anniversary of Dreamtempo and to appease bassheads after having to cancel one night of his Freestyle sessions weekend.
Dreamtempo was originally made in 1999 for Bassnectar's (real name Lorin Ashton), girlfriend. Re-released in 2013, it is easily one of the best-known pieces of work by Bassnectar. A new mixtape has been a long time coming and we couldn't think of a better commemorative piece than this.
Tempo of Dreams lives up to the name. It starts out with a dreamy, ethereal track and immediately goes into Buku's “Front to Back” remixed by Bassnectar himself. The mixtape is full of funky acid jazz that perfectly blends into the bass we know and love. This mixtape features remixes of tracks by not only Buku, but Decap, Purity Ring, OAKK and many more.
