Anyone who has seen Bassnectar live knows that the typical rules of electronic music performances don’t apply. Where other artists follow a singular genre, Bassnectar jumps from dubstep to punk to jungle to hip-hop to abstract in the blink of an eye. And while the lines between DJ set (other people’s music) and live set (your own tracks) remain set in stone, Bassnectar bravely bounces between the two, limited only by his own manic energy, and the knobs on his sampler.
So it makes sense that Bassnectar’s latest album, Divergent Spectrum, crosses the same lines, with remixes of Ellie Goulding, Rollz, and Gogol Bordello sitting side-by-side with his own original productions. “Immigrandiada” is the perfect example of all these fusions, taking Gogol Bordello’s hi-octane gypsy-punk, and throttling it further with grinding beats and some heavy metal riffage. Download the song and check the full album tracklist after the jump.
