If you ask me, Bassnectar is one of those guys who can do no wrong. Period. Musically, he is undoubtedly one of the most talented, passionate producers in electronic music (or any kind of music for that matter). Socially, he is one of the greatest human beings to grace this planet, constantly showing love for his supporters, his peers, and a number of good causes.

So it’s with the utmost pleasure that I share his latest release, the full length album Noise vs. Beauty. And believe me when I say that is nothing short of a masterpiece. Encapsulating just what the title would suggest, Nectar’s latest creation draws the line between noise and beauty and then proceeds to play hop scotch over it. For the Basshead who needs some hardcore whomping in their life, there are massive thumpers like ‘Noise ft. Donnis’ or “Gnar w/ The Upbeats.” There are also tracks that showcase Nectar’s softer (but no less epic) side; check out the beautiful ‘Ephemeral’ or “You & Me ft. W Darling.” And of course, there are songs that take both sides and smashes them together like the opening track ‘F.U.N w/ Seth Drake.’ Every track has that signature sound and just is as layered and complex as you would expect from Lorin. Brace yourself, Bassheads, this one is a killer! Grab your copy below, turn it up and enjoy!

Elevating the excitement for the festival’s return in Colorado at the end of the year, Decadence has released the official after movie for last year’s event. The festival quickly captured the attention of electronic music fans when it released a staggering New Year’s Eve line-up consisting of Pretty Lights, Above & Beyond, Bassnectar, and Dada Life, only to hit us with the addition of Tiesto days later. If you’ve purchased tickets, are still contemplating attending, or not hooked yet, take a few minutes to soak in the official after movie. It reassures you that this is worth every penny and more, and if you’re still on the fence, you’ll end up on the right side.

Easily one of the biggest New Year’s Eve announcements, Pretty Lights and Above & Beyond are set to headline Decadence Festival, an event that is being called the largest indoor festival and NYE celebration that has ever touched down Colorado. The event will take place beginning December 30th where Bassnectar and Dada Life will set things off for the festival on two different main stages: Bass Arena & Global Dance Arena.

On New Years Eve Pretty Lights & Above & Beyond will share the spotlight as they bring CO into the new year. The magnitude of this announcement, with its respective headliners, only leaves you to wonder what other artists are in store for the line-up; they’ll most likely be incredible additions.

Decadence taking place at the Colorado Convention Center from 7PM-2AM on each night. Just to give you an idea of what the scope of this production is going to look like, check out the convention center.
