Heavy is definitely a word i would use to describe a lot of what I've heard from Bassnectar. I think in the article it's used more as a descriptive adjective than as an attempt at a new genre tag so no need to unleash the beast here Dev haha

I always confuse Bassnectar for Basshunter and remember in 2008 when godawful cheesy trance was called techno.

This isn't terrible but he really just keeps getting worse with every release. Cozza Frenzy is one of my favorite electronic albums ever.

this guy is kind of poopy but he was so much fun live. glowsticks and drugged-out hipsters everywhere.

Yeah I've heard he's fun live and I'm sure he would be. I can't really force myself to sit down and listen to this kind of thing for a whole album though.

This man made the best remix of NIN's Closer ever, so he is excused from poor albums from here on out.

Perhaps the new album makes his live show change for the better, as most people can't stand to see it twice.

I enjoy select remixes by him, nothing more.

Bassnectar is incredible live, but i did see him at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, one of the best venues in the world, so that probably helped him out.

Most of the people I know who have seen him more than once all said that it was the same, albeit great, show; I'd like some innovation.

Yeah seeing brostep live can be fun as fuck but if the DJs don't at least mix in other stuff it gets so monotonous.

^Cozza Frenzy wasn't a dubstep album at all, just very bass heavy, and a lot of his most popular tracks are from that. Mesmerizing the Ultra and Underground Communication are awesome though also, but yeah not as well known.

Cozza Frenzy is for the most part, a dubstep album

Well, agree to disagree I guess. The megabass remix and church of the century are the only tracks on there that sound like dubstep to me though.

You'd have to be pretty deaf to think that Cozza Frenzy wasn't a full blown dubstep album

yeah Cozza Frenzy is almost all dubstep. I think it's his strongest album, and the rest of his material is mostly crap. As for his pre-dubstep phase, his sound was just boring

I thought this site has progressed past the point where some dipshit 15 year old would hear a couple of tracks on youtube and assume that he had the entire genre pegged
