Bassnectar released his ‘Timestretch’ EP in 2010 on the eve of electronic music’s plunge into popularity. Bassnectar spearheaded his particular style of dubstep, one that relies heavily on expansive melodies and trippy synths rather than the banging, distorted chaos of a Skrillex track. The EP’s title track is one that really caught us early on. Like many dubstep artists, Bassnectar came to electronic music production from the heavy metal scene and that dramatic flair is evident on this song. His songs have always been thoughtful, beautifully crafted creations that continue to exert a timeless appeal and influence dubstep producers to this day.
