Santa Cruz, Calif.'s Lorin Ashton, aka Bassnectar, is known by most for taking the stage at festivals across the globe and getting the crowd moving with bass-heavy jams. Since debuting the 1990s, though, he has also steadily built up a catalog of albums and EPs that span the realm of electronic music, from glitch to dubstep to IDM. And on Divergent Spectrum -- his first release since 2010's Wildstyle EP -- Ashton has thrown everything he can into the effort. It's apparently a concept album that is "[i]nspired by the colorful yet confusing dualities inherent in human existence." He expresses those dualities with genre-spanning tracks that include remixes of Ellie Goulding and Gogol Bordello and original tunes featuring Seth Drake and Ill Gates.
