A producer/DJ with an overarching concept and vision is hard to come by these days, and so it makes someone like Lorin Ashton a true rarity. Known professionally as Bassnectar, the California bred and based artist has been in the game for years honing and pushing his ever-evolving brand of "omnitempo maximalism." What that actually is?

From his early days mixing psychedelic and ambient inspired breaks to the genre-defying, brain-busting bass he serves up now, Bassnectar's sound has never been so easily defined. This list is by no means definitive, but it's a look at some of Bassnectar's essentials.
