Bassnectar Announces Freestyle Sessions for Colorado Fam
After noise ordinance restrictions at Red Rocks in 2015 and Bass Center frequencies shaking the Mile High City last summer, bass music fans have been wondering what Colorado-favorite Lorin Ashton would have planned for 2017.
This week, the man better-known as Bassnectar revealed plans to return to Colorado for a three-night sonic experience that promises to pivot away from the ordinary.
Slated for July 7-9 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, CO, the run of mid-summer shows dubbed “Freestyle Sessions: Colorado” aims to create a setting for musical experimentation. Direct from Bassnectar’s site:
“We are taking over a room in Colorado, removing the stage, building a little dj booth for various humans to jam out inside of, while you can get lost in the crowd. close your eyes, put your phone away. stop texting, stop tweeting, stop thinking. don’t take pictures, don’t try and record the moment. don’t sit at home and watch this on youtube, come experience it live, the way dance parties used to feel, the way house parties feel, the way it feels to be out in the middle of nowhere just vibing on good sound. The music can be anything we want it to be, but please don’t come expecting anything...”
From throwback jams to downtempo trip hop, the multi-genre affair intends to break from the status quo.
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 21st at 10am, MST.
Colorado native living right outside the Bass Capitol. DJ turned writer-- I heard that's the natural progression. If the music doesn't make you feel something, what's the point?
