Bassnectar v. Lupe Fiasco: "Land of the Lupes"

Thank God it's...Thursday?

Actually, yes! T-minus one week until Sinden spins Webster Hall and Boys Noize comes to Summer Stage in Central Park.

Until then, here's some new Lorin Ashton (aka Bassnectar) for your downtempo/dubstep consideration, a pretty nice mash-up of some chill beats and the original Lupe Fiasco anthem, "Kick, Push".

Straight from the horse's mouth:
I took the beat of a long-overdue unreleased tune called “Stretch Reflex” and melted it together with the synths and melodies from another song that was supposed to be on Underground Communication, but ended up getting saved for later. It was written as a pensive homage to the dead, the original melodics sound like a black metal song but in this version they have kind of a nice 1990’s Orb or FSOL feel to them…that sound will never get old for me! Then i took some of the prettier melodies from that song and mixed them with a Lupe Fiasco acapella (i looooove his voice) and it became one of my favorite tunes to close a party with.
Bassnectar embarks on a North American tour kicking off tomorrow, July 31st, in Boulder, CO.
