I hope we can all agree here that nothing is better than when Bassnectar drops a new track, and this one is no exception. Yesterday the man himself, Lorin, dropped a new remix of “Midnight” by Joker. Bassnectar is always spot on with his remixes – one of Hal’s favorites is his remix of ‘Lights’ by Ellie Goulding. His newest remix, of the song ‘Midnight’ by Joker (listen to the original here), is essentially the same song, but with a lot more bass and a more epic feel to it. Honestly, it’s A LOT like the original song, but props to Bassnectar for taking something good and making it better. In addition to the new track release, we also get the pleasure of viewing the new music video/visuals for the song from the Amorphous Lab. This video was
“directed, shot, and edited (VFX) by David Dutton. Dutton often teams up with Mari Takahashi, better known as Atomic Mari, part of the Youtube channel Smosh, and formerly a ballet dancer. Originally an art collaboration for their collective Hidden Fortress, the video was remixed into new life for this remix of Joker’s ‘Midnight’.”(bassnectar.net)
Bassheads around the world are jumping for joy along with Takahashi as they not only listen to the track in amazement, but relive Basslights and Smashville NYE where he debuted these never-before-seen-visuals live for the first time. I’ll never forget standing in the stands at the Hampton Colosseum (aka the Mothership) for Basslights and seeing these mind-blowing visuals for the first time, thinking “woah, something great is in store for us very, very soon.” And great it is! Check out the video here if you haven’t already!
