Dance music personality cult Bassnectar took the internet by storm this week, dropping a surprise announcement that a new album titled Unlimited would be released on June 3. While that release date has now been pushed back to June 17, the revered producer is making up for the delay by sharing four new cuts off the upcoming record, including one that features electronic trio The Glitch Mob.
“Reaching Out” kicks off the collection of new music, opening with dreamy arpeggios and squelchy bass sounds that lead into a trap section with hard hitting 808 beats. Bassnectar keeps things ethereal on “Reaching Out,” focusing on trippy sound design and mid range grooves to carry the track.
Elsewhere, LUZCID assists on “Music Is The Drug,” which features the same sort of hip-hop inspired rhythms from the last cut and should definitely leave fans pleased.
Next up is “TKO,” which features guests Rye Rye and Zion I who come together with Bassnectar to drop a rowdy trap number. The fourth and final track is a collaboration with The Glitch Mob titled “Paracosm,” which features a soft production with computerized vocals and washes of ambient synth pads. Sparse drums and a deep bass sound join the mix, gradually building the intensity over the track’s duration.
While fans will no doubt be disappointed to have to wait a bit longer for the new studio album, Bassnectar proves he knows how to take care of his legions of followers with this epic four track preview.
