To many, Underworld is one of the most influential electronic bands of a generation, including myself. I was introduced to Underworld back in 1998 when I lived in England, and re-introduced by Bassnectar on New Years Eve 2012 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.[caption id="attachment_6980" align="aligncenter" width="558"] Bassnectar NYE 2012[/caption]
It must be a hard decision. What do you play during the NYE countdown? How do you decide what to play for a sold out arena show on NYE on a massive 360 degree rotating stage? He could not have picked a more emotional and classic EDM song to play (at least for me). It truly had me on a level I have never felt before, and it appeared that the crowd felt the same way. So here is Rez by Underworld, remixed by Bassnectar. A tribute to one of the greats, given to us by a future legend. You can pre-order the song on iTunes.
