Track of the Day: Bassnectar Releases “Now” Feat. Rye Rye
Bassheads from all corners rejoice in harmony this week as the much anticipated first single from Bassnectar‘s new album has been released. As if that wasn’t enough, his full tour has finally been announced. He’s pretty much bouncing from festival to festival, dropping beats from coast to coast.
“Now” is pretty much everywhere since its release a few days ago. Anyone who has Bassnectar fans as Facebook friends have heard it by now, even if they had no idea who Bassnectar was. If Lorin Ashton wasn’t blowing enough ear drums last summer, he’ll definitely make up for it this year. “Now” is the epitome of a Bassnectar track, without sounding like the same thing you’ve heard before. He’s done an amazing job of continually reinventing sound and the listener’s aural experience through his career. The song is still just as badass as any one we’ve heard before, but nothing is ever what we expect. However, it is silly to expect anything from Bassnectar, and we’re ok with that! Rye Rye adds a serving of sexy vocals to the song, while the immense builds make the drop all that more pleasing. “Now” has its own flow, going from slow to deep, and it of course has enough bass to rattle the windows. Listen to Rye Rye, get ready to grind, and check out Bassnectar’s tour dates below.
