This is most certainly a pleasant change of pace for Lorin, a seasoned veteran when it comes it the “dirty dirty.”
Most (if not all) of my fond memories involving the music of Bassnectar revolve around one thing: grime. However, it was the filthy nature of his beats that attracted me towards his music to begin with. It only seems right that he is now switching it up a bit, attracting a larger audience and offering fans a wider spectrum of melodies, tones and instruments. After all, everyone likes variety, right?
Well, probably not. Face it, people suck and they HATE change.
Personally, we welcome it. That is, pending the artist in question continues to produce euphonic compositions. So far, I have not run into any disgruntled “Bass Heads”; I could very well see handfuls of his die-hards being a bit perturbed with his recent lighter, more melodic take on music production. “Who cares?”, said the wolf.
If there’s grass on the pitch let’s play.
Meaning, “You and Me” is nothing short of a top-quality jam. It may not sound like it’s coming from the same Bassnectar you thought you knew, but apparently you never really knew him to begin with. What do you think about that?
Mr. Ashton’s new album titled “Noise Vs. Beauty” drops June 24th on Amorphous Music.
Watch for it.
