Bassnectar

Bassnectar is the brainchild of San Francisco-based DJ, producer and artist, Lorin Ashton. His music covers almost all genres and fuses everything into an electro-synthesis of intense basslines and hypnotic soundscapes. One of the longest standing and most respected artists in American electronic dance music, he’s been in the game since long before most of his contemporaries and has amassed an epic fan base of loyal ‘Bassheads’. The founder and head-producer of Amorphous Music, he has collaborated through his self-run Bassnectar Labs studio with the likes of KRS-One, Perry Farrell, Gogol Bordello, Fever Ray, Spearhead and STS9, and has worked on remix projects with esteemed producers such as Z-trip, Diplo, BT, 6Blocc, DJ Vadim, and RJD2 – in particular, his remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” was in the US iTunes Electronic chart top 10 for 28 weeks straight and at #1 for 12 of those! Bassnectar is famed for his raucous live shows with state of the art lightshows and enough bass to work crowds into palpable frenzies. His performances are so successful and sought out that in 2011 he made the top 3 hard ticket sales along with fellow EDM artists Deadmau5 and Tiesto, selling over 250k tickets to his solo shows alone that year. A contributor to the global community at large through charity and social change, one dollar from every ticket sold in 2011 was given to a non-profit and this resulted with a cheque for over $200,000 being written to Air Traffic Control (ATC).
