Bassnectar seems to rolling out one big announcement after another one. Recently, he shared the news of his two-day Basslantic City Festival coming to Atlantic City in April. The latest post on his website reveals a handful of awesome announcements.
This spring, Bassnectar will be dropping a new mixtape, in addition to collaborations and remixes. These include "Interlock" with ATLiens via Skrillex's label OWSLA, "Watch Out" with Dirtyphonics and the Ragga Twins, a remix of Buku's "Front To Back" (which he recently teased), a collaboration with G Jones and "some other TBA shenanigans involving Noisia, Dorfex Bos, and others.
However, the biggest news of them all is the fact that he's launching a new side project with his longtime friend Sayr called NAUX FAUX that will be "an old-school psychedelic downtempo project." While we've yet to receive concrete details on when these new side projects will begin sharing new music, Bassnectar has told fans that that information will be surfacing in the coming weeks.
There's also another Bass Center show in the works that will span three days on a major three-day holiday weekend -- stay tuned for details on that. Bassnectar's Dollar Per Bass Head charity will be kicking off its next installment shortly to give back to the community in support of organizations dedicated to better the lives of others in need. Now, we know this is a lot of information to take in so it might even be good to read through this a couple times. One thing you should know for sure is that Bassnectar has a ton planned this year that includes massive shows and plenty of music from both his solo project and his new side project. Enjoy!
