“This was a song I loved as a child, and something I started working on back in 2002. I called it the 2003 remix because I think that is when I actually finished it, but of course I never released it; just kept it as a secret weapon and bootleg. (I love the whistling part in the middle.)
The beat is a bit of an older style… 103 bpm hip hop beats with fuzzy bass and a playful attitude. Newer/younger fans who separate music into 1 of 2 categories (“filthy” or “Not filthy enough”) will undoubtedly have no interest in this song, as it is basically a b-side remix that has been locked away in my vaults for many moons. But the old school heads may enjoy it and, regardless, I love it.
A few hours after hearing the news that Egypt was becoming a democracy I was sitting on a plane next to my buddy Tamer, who is Egyptian, and the joy in his face was electrifying. He was beaming, and I thought maybe it would be fun to dust off this old tune and huck it out into vapor space, here you go:” (-Lorin)
Got an e-mail from Lorin himself today announcing to his fans that his latest creations were made with us in mind,
”This week i finished the latest Bassnectar EP, ‘Wildstyle’ which is the most bonkers collection of music i’ve ever created. Each song was crafted with you in mind, and how your body and soul will be affected when the waves of this music are crashing through your cells. We will have more info soon with regards to release, but it will definitely become centerpiece of the fall soundtrack. “
I don’t know about you, but I’m oozing with excitement for this to drop…Also, if you’re in the 305 like my blessed self, then you’re about to get rocked in the face by the master dub himself next Friday at the Fillmore Miami Beach. Stay tuned for a play by play of the concert (hope to have it posted the next day after the show but this will depend on how hung over I am)
