Noise vs Beauty

Noise vs Beauty by Bassnectar
Released: Jun 2014
Label: Amorphous Music
Bassnectar was one of the first producers to see bass music's destiny as an anything-goes hybrid of rough-and-tumble low-end sound, and he makes good on that potential here, flitting between dubstep, trap, drum'n'bass, New Orleans bounce and old-school rave with purpose and finesse. As heavy as his beats can be -- usually, that's somewhere between gorilla-sized and elephantine -- he avoids brostep's flailing excess in favor of deadly precision. And as "Flash Back" proves, his softer side is just as intense.
