Test Spins: Bassnectar, Vava Voom

Print More

Vava Voom is a filthy creative continuation of Bassnectar’s evolving career. Having made his name crafting hip-hop-esque simple beats with feint wobbles and eclectic samples on albums like Beatfreak Bohemia and Motions of Mutation, Bassnectar rose to fame as the dirty, long-haired monster bouncing on stage and has continued to release sick tracks. His last album Divergent Spectrum was one of his best yet with the hit remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights;” It also contained heavy hitters like his remix of Gogol Bordello’s “Immigraniada” and the gritty smash “Upside Down” — an even doper remix by Terravita in the remix pack released weeks after.
