When Bassnectar came to town in 2010, RFT Music writer Christian Schaeffer had this to say:
When you name your musical outfit Bassnectar, you'd better have the feel-good vibes (and the low-end) to back up such a ridiculous moniker. Thankfully, the act's DJ, beat-wrangler and all around party-starter Lorin Ashton embraces the sort of musical pantheism that breaks down borders and gets bodies moving. For the indie snobs, he can toss in Beatles licks or Pixies bass lines -- and for the club kids, the sheer amount of bass and squelching synthesizers is enough to trigger visions of glow sticks. Add a few hip-hop verses, continual tempo adjustments -- and the emotional catharsis that happens when a thousand strangers move as one -- and Bassnectar's mass appeal is no mystery at all.
