#TBT: European Vacation Mix – Bassnectar

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Bass Heads of the world! Let’s throwback this Thursday and start it out right with one of my favorite older releases from the bass god himself, European Vacation Mix – Bassnectar.

Lorin, compiled this masterpiece of audio proportions during his month long vacation two years ago. Upon the initial release, Bassnectar let his fans know that this mix was,

a selection of dirty music which I hope you enjoy when you find yourself in a high-speed chase, or tightrope-walking between skyscrapers in a windy metropolis, or sumo-wrestling someone much larger than you…”

Bassnectar has the unique ability to produce mixes that tell a story. With each intro starting out with a familiar sounding voiceover, transitioning into a recognizable banger then speeding up, slowing down, building up then dropping over and over again to finally ending with the perfect outro, the listener feels like they have just completed an epic journey. This mixtape really allows the listener to get inside the artists head for 20 minutes. Maintaining the perfect amount of bass, it’s perfect for any type of occasion and after pressing play it will make you want to get up and start raging. I hope this mix makes your Thursday way more epic! Happy listening my friends!
