The dubstep master is back with his 10th studio album! Critically acclaimed bass music pioneer Bassnectar, AKA Lorin Ashton, has today released his milestone 10th artist album Noise Vs. Beauty. Out now via his very own imprint Amorphous Music, it’s available to purchase in digital, CD and vinyl formats from www.bassnectar.net
Featuring early singles “You & Me”, “Now” and “Hold On”, the 15-track album, which was made available to stream in full via Rolling Stone yesterday, has already garnered considerable praise from the likes of Billboard, VICE, Stereogum, Mixmag, SPIN and Sirius XM Radio to name just a few.
Dubbed the most inventive electronic artist since Aphex Twin by NPR, Bassnectar has criss-crossed the world selling out huge venues and donating hundred of thousands of dollars with his Dollar Per BassheadProgram, but took an extended break to complete the album.
“I took an unprecedented 6 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.
