Earlier this week, Bassnectar dropped “Slather” with Digital Ethos, a metallic, warbly snack that reflected classic Bassnectar. Now today, he’s followed it up with “Other Worlds,” a collaboration with Dorfex Bos, which unfurls out of glowing melodies and fading vocals into a arpeggiator-led renaissance of pads. It’s a shift from Loren’s standard fare, and a beautiful one at that – here is what he had to say about the song:
“Other Worlds” was inspired by a new collage from Sebastian Wahl , which we brought to life with the help of Black Lake Media. The collage shows portals emerge and unfold and evolve within and around a picture frame… a magical gateway, like the wardrobe in The Chronicles of Narnia.
On a sunny day in Brooklyn I sat down with Dorfex Bos to write a piece of music to go along with the visuals, and the ideas just came pouring out. We finished the song in 24 hours flat, with various instruments and sounds mapped to various details and dimensions of the various worlds within the collage.
Reflective Part Two will be out on December 1 via Amorphous Music.
