Bassnectar continues to amaze with the newest track off his forthcoming Reflective: Part 2 EP.
“Other Worlds” with Dorfex Bos is a huge change up from “Slather” with Digital Ethos, which Nectar unleashed earlier this week. Although no less elaborate, it trades in dangerously strange wubs for layers upon layers of breathy, melodic structures. Naturally, there’s a healthy serving of bass to keep the track moving and evolving.
Bassnectar put a little extra magic into the making of “Other Worlds.” He explains the thought process behind his new single:
“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.
So there you have it. If “Other Worlds” sounds like a mix of multiple times and dimensions — that’s because it is. Listen to the incredible track here and get ready for Reflective: Part 2 EP out December 1st.
