Bassnectar: (aka Lorin)
For the last decade, Lorin Ashton has helped develop the North American underground dance music scene. From touring full time as a DJ (an average of 125 shows per year), to his production & remixing under the alias Bassnectar, he has ammassed a dedicated fan base, crossing over from hip hop to electronica to breakbeat to ragga/dub to the jam band scene and the greater Burningman Scene.
Lorin has released Mesmerizing The Ultra, his double album debut on Amorphous/Organic Music, available through Fontana Distribution in the United States and Universal Distribution in Canada. Having remixed or collaborated with the likes of KRS One, Heavyweight Dub Champion, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Buckethead, The String Cheese Incident, Saul williams, Noam Chomsky, Cheb I Sabbah, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Crash Berlin, Landslide, and Perry Farrell, the Bassnectar sound has benefited from a wide lense of exposure, and evolved from cutting edge dance music to where it exists today: a mutant mash-up of multiple styles and genres.
As a producer, he has delivered scores of 12 inch releases, charted by the likes of Annie Nightengale (BBC Radio 1), James Zabiela, Rennie Pilgrem, DJ Hyper, and Simply Jeff (BPM), with support from Adam Freeland, Karsh Kale, Freq Nasty, Uberzone, and Krafty Kuts. The tracks enjoyed international praise from such publications as BPM, XLR8R, Mixer, and Muziq, and have been licensed by MTV for multiple shows. His two full length CDs have both gone into their third pressing, followed by the recent release of Tempo Rosso, a full length downtempo CD for Red Bull (13,000 copies were pressed and distributed). He has also appeared on releases from the following labels: OM , Virgin, 6 Degrees, Functional Breaks, Ceiba, Groundwork (Starbucks) and Kool Keith
