Bassnectar Announces “Noise Vs. Beauty”

Bassnectar comes to us with the first single, “You & Me”, a ballad featuring vocals from W Darling which appears on his forthcoming album Noise Vs. Beauty,  which drops June 24. Dubbed the most inventive electronic artist since Aphex Twin, Bassnectar has crisscrossed the world selling out huge venues and donating hundred of thousands of dollars with his “Dollar Per Basshead Program,” but took an extended break to complete the album.

“I took an unprecedented six months off the road (the first time since I started touring in the late 90s) and dove deep into the creative process. I unplugged from social networking and didn’t listen to any music: I just created. For the first time I feel completely content with what I have created, and authentically detached from the preferences of others; I made the music I wanted to make and I love it,” says Bassnectar.  “Each of the 15 songs represents a specific point along that spectrum with some songs that sound like pure freakout-noise, some that sound beautiful and touching, and some that are combinations,” he adds.

Last week, he teased his collaboration with Baltimore MC Rye Rye, “Now”, which is a frenzy of electro synths, flowing rhymes, and 808s. Also joining him on Noise Vs. Beauty is a diverse range of artists including Fashawn, Zion I, TURSI and many more.
