The electronic nomad Ashton Lorin, better known as Bassnectar, has succeeded at creating an eclectic and diverse album that within minutes has you unintentionally bobbing your head in appreciation. His album Divergent Spectrum, released on August 2nd, 2011 through his label Amorphous Music, provides us with something more than just your typical dubstep album. Bassnectar's most recent album explores all facets of electronic music mixed with hard-hitting dubstep beats.
Bassnectar, a California based DJ and producer, is famous for his electronic mixes and combining mainstream music with intense bass lines and the popular "wobble" bass used by a variety of dubstep musicians. For those not familiar with the dubstep genre, it is a type of electronic dance music that originated in London, England. Dubstep music is most associated with prodigious bass lines, reverberant drum patterns and clipped samples and is often, but not always combined with vocals. A common characteristic of dubstep is the wobble bass, which makes quite a few appearances in the Divergent Spectrum album. It can be described as an extended bass note that is manipulated rhythmically and is typically produced by using a low frequency oscillator (an electronic signal that creates rhythmic pulses or sweep that are used to modulate synthesizers) to manipulate various parameters of a synthesizer (including volume, distortion and filter cutoff).
However, Bassnectar is not solely a dubstep musician. His songs, especially in this album, present his use of various techniques of composition, whether it is a shift in meter and timings or enveloping a unique multiplicity of layers of synthesized harmonies, rappers and singers.

This is absolutely not his dirtiest album he's ever made, but it certainly is the best melodic dubstep I've ever heard -- period. With constant melodies submerged in raw basslines in tracks like "Plugged In," "Boomerang," and "Above and Beyond," this album delivers with nothing but awesome. Norin also comes back to some old roots, instigating some breakbeat nostalgia with tracks like "Disintegration Part IV" and "After Thought." Besides the heavy pounding melodies with numerous tracks, he also shines through with an older track "Lights" (a remix of Ellie Goulding's hit single) and it's damn near perfection. This track brings back a short-lived memory of a bootleg he made back in 2009, being the remix of Nelly Furtado's Magical World. Above all, this album is definitely worth a look and I strongly recommend a purchase of this hot sexy piece of ass.

If you've only recently gotten into Bassnectar or are looking to make your first purchase, this isn't the place to start.

Do yourself a favor and get this one last, after you've gotten hooked (which is inevitable). Start at the beginning and work up to this one.

Look at it this way. While everything Lorin produces is off the charts, if I had to make a list of best to worst this one comes in last.

Now, go download everything else, you will not be disappointed. I'd wager you'll be coming back for Divergent Spectrum in no time.

Great work on this one. IMO, his best. Hate to bash on him because his is so great, but going from this, a truly epic work, to Va Va Voom, its like a huge step down.
Plugged In is that first tune that really grabs you, and has that slow head nodding kind of driving beat, so classic Bassnectar.
Boomerang is somewhat cut from the same cloth, with a deep solemn feel to it, sooo good.
Probable cause is an amazing tune.
The Matrix is an interesting one, and tends to stick in your head.
Paging Stereophonic is another top notch epic Bassnectar tune.
After Thought is another deep tune.

Overall, I think this may be the best Bassnectar so far. If you like his other stuff, this one will make you a happy camper.

I really like Bassnectar's music. The beats are addictive and you cannot sit still once you put the music on.

Amazing artist found on Pandora, Boomerang is probably my favorite song off this album. If you like dubstep this is a good choice.
