Lorin Ashton, better known under his stage name Bassnectar, is an American DJ and record producer who is famed for his impressive live shows.

Lorin grew up in a San Francisco and initially, found a love of the visual arts rather than music, creating movies with his dad’s camera when he was just 10 years. Bassnectar’s original musical influences included metal and rock bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, and Nirvana so some may find it hard to believe that he pursued an electro/drum & bass career but those early influences are still evident on tracks such as ‘Seek & Destroy’ and ‘Boomerang’. A real reason he became affiliated with the genre was due to his enjoyment of raves in the mid-’90s, where he found the house/dance vibes so exciting and inspiring that he began to create his own brand of genre-bending electro and has continued to develop on these founding inspirations ever since.

He cut his teeth on the house party circuit of San Francisco’s Bay Area under the name DJ Lorin, this basement quality is still evident in his live mixing qualities today. Bassnectar is famed for his live performances and light shows. In 2005, he began touring constantly in the States as well as all over the world, these included a regular stop at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well a special performance each New Year’s Eve. His performance for New Year’s Eve 2011 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville sold out to 13,000 fans+, and a sequel event has taken place every following year to date, with Bassnectar performing from a rotating stage at the center of the arena which allowed every member of the audience get a fantastic view of his spectacular show. Bassnectar also performs regularly at a variety of music festivals, including Bonnaroo, Coachella, the Electric Daisy Carnival, Lollapalooza, and Wakarusa. In 2012 Bassnectar sold a quarter of a million concert tickets excluding festival performances.

Despite not having any real commercial success with his albums, Bassnectar has managed to create a community who have a shared adoration for his momentous electro and ambitious live performance which has been known to incorporate musical collaborators and circus performers.
