735 Queen Street East, Toronto

BASSNECTAR live at The Opera House on Saturday, July 17, 2010.


BASSNECTAR is a freeform electronic music and social experimentation project based in San Francisco, California. Primarily a music project of Lorin Ashton, BASSNECTAR is also accompanied by various collaborators. Ashton describes BASSNECTAR'S sound as "omni-tempo maximalism," by which he means combining beats and basslines with music of any or all speeds, time signatures, rhythms, and sound source. The sound gravitates toward heavy tempos, playing with double time and half time, and using electronic methods to embellish and reinforce other styles of music, including ragtime, punk rock, blues, batucada, polka, salsa, film scores, gangsta rap, beatboxing, balkan gypsy music, ska, death metal, or dub. According to Ashton, “we are so blessed, and so deeply fortunate to be alive and awake right now…it’s a basic truth, but it’s very powerful. I think privilege confers responsibility, and Bassnectar is a reflection of that opportunity to give back; the motion of my cells bouncing back at the world.†BASSNECTAR also has a podcast on iTunes called BASSNECTAR Transmission and regularly releases bootlegs on the official website.
