From The Pixies to Modern English to low end dubstep

If you ever sit back perusing this site and wonder to yourself, “Self, I wonder what kind of music this bizarre Mr. Mundt enjoys on his downtime?” Well if I were there next to you I’d pull over an ottoman, smile knowingly, and in a comforting voice I would begin to tell you a story. Wiping my bifocals clean of fingerprints, I’d light my pipe and delight you with tales of ribaldry, both false and true. And then I would play you this IDJ mix by San Francisco’s Bassnectar, and all would be good in the world. “I finally went nuts waiting for the Drum & Bass world to figure out that if they move their snares to the THREE in each beat it makes the sickest hiphop…like fast dubstep,” explains Lorin (aka Bassnectar) of the quantum leap that makes this mix so monumental. “So I went for it and edited a bunch of choons by hand. Now I have wicked carpel tunnel and this mixtape to show for it.” From Pixies to Modern English to terrifying dubstep, this mix explains why Lorin was invited to play Coachella this year (as if there was any doubt). Stream it below, or just download it HERE for free.
