Bassnectar Releases New Single, 'Heads Up'

Bassnectar is back with his first proper musical offering since 2007's Underground Communication. "Heads Up" - the first single/ep from his forthcoming full length album The Other Side - available now at www.beatport.com, www.junodownload.com  and other major digital sites.

It's bombs-away-business-as-usual with this uber tear-out title track: a freakshow mix of sledgehammer dubstep, 2 step, and bass psychosis. The single features an alternative mix (California Style) of 90 beats per minute double time throb-hop that drops on your head like a John Candy body slam, as well as a third remix [West Coast Lo Fi Remix]" - a dripping melodic sound game by the upstart Bassnectar side project West Coast Lo Fi. Also included to knock this sucker out of the park, the Bassnectar remix of 'Roustabout' by Beats Antique...a twisted carnival circus anthem with - you guessed it - plenty of wobbling bass.
