Bassnectar On Seek & Destroy Mission

Funny how some bands get properly arsey about sampling still. If it wasn't for Hip-hop it would probably have taken me a whole lot longer to venture into my father's jazz collection, and many a great band has been discovered due to seeking out a sneaky sample. Part of it is translating the material into a language the new listener can understand. Once that barrier has been broken down it makes the next conversation, that could be alot more intense, a hell of a lot easier to digest. For example, I've never been a Metallica fan. It's not that I don't like or respect them, they just weren't in my radar growing up and so my tastes were defined by different cultural markers. However I have been a massive Bassnectar fan for a while now (essentially the music represents the combination of a number of my youthful music loves) and with his latest bootleg he has translated Metallica's Seek & Destroy just perfectly into a headbanging, foot stomping slice of pure unadulterated Crunk Rock.

You can share this track with your peoples directly from the Bassnectar Website and also join up to the email list so you can be even more on it with new releases than we are.

We've also been sent this rather epic gift in the shape of Glitch Mob's new remix for French Electro producer Krazy Baldhead. Rolling in at 9 minutes long, this is probably where Funkadelic would be now if George Clinton had discovered computers instead of crack, only without the rainbow headed genius on vocal duty.
