BASSNECTAR TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM 'COZZA FRENZY'

Heads up! The brand new full-length BASSNECTAR album COZZA FRENZY drops digitally on September 29, with CDs available in stores on October 27. The first "Cozza Frenzy" single and DJ TOOLS Collection are available now at Bassnectar.net and select online retailers. A nationwide tour will launch in mid-September, sweeping through over 30 cities in North America, including headlining shows at The Fillmore in Denver, New York's Irving Plaza and the House of Blues in Chicago as well as festivals like Austin City Limits and Symbiosis in Groveland, CA.


BASSNECTAR’s own label Amorphous Music teams up with Child’s Play Records to unleash Cozza Frenzy, an amalgamation of sound that combines dubstep, electro, hip-hop, and all styles of dirty digital bass-heavy music and smashes it all into a collision of wobbling, perverted basslines, and hypnotic hide-and-seek adventures. A work three years in the making, this rich and eclectic collection of 15 songs features collaborations with artists such as Fever Ray, Zumbi of Zion I, Mr. Projectile, and Capital J.

 

Genres are turned upside down, sliced into half time and combined with one agenda: to delight your ears. While the live shows are explosive orgies of sound and light that literally turn into mosh pits, the album explores not only the frenzy but also the meltdown. Lush, expressive melodies and playful combinations of sound are just as much a trademark as the insane thickness and heaviness that pervades each song. It's like a variety show: some freakish songs for those moments of complete abandon, and other more melodic adventures for those moments when all you want to do is dissolve into thoughts.

 

"I wanted to express something emotionally visceral; reflective of the different shades of sonic mania I feel, each song having its own personality and character. I don't care if something is hip or trendy or not, I just want to give strength to feelings. This is music for people." With a rabid fan base that grows by the day, "this music" is primed to cause more than just a frenzy when it drops upon the masses September 29.

 

The debut single, "Cozza Frenzy," features an original head-banging, body-rocking anthem, where dubstep and electro collide beneath chopped and screwed vocals. BASSNECTAR gives his own Mega-Bass remix – a straightforward dubstep version perfect for ripping any dance floor into complete frenzy. Z-Trip’s Hellrazor Remix takes the original and flips it into a scratch track with loads of cuts and edits. Scratch DJs and turntablists will eat this alive. The single, as well as "Cozza Frenzy" DJ TOOLS Collection 1, is available now through Bassnectar.net, as well as other major online retailers. Visit http://music.bassnectar.net to download.

 

In support of the album launch, BASSNECTAR will be touring with a custom-built PK sound system courtesy of the Wobble Factory alongside special guests DJ Vadim, Nosaj Thing and Heavyweight Dub Champion at select cities throughout North America. Whether remixing, collaborating, writing, DJing, performing or working on constant social networking, BASSNECTAR's music is the lure, and social impact is the very sincere intention. Coinciding with the road show, the BASSNECTAR team will be working with a community of activists and organizations to generate involvement in local issues that pertain to selected cities among the tour route.
