Music Style and Influence

Bassnectar was originally influenced by metal and rock bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, and Nirvana, bringing these influences with him into his own musical career. He has also stated that early EDM and Ambient artists, such as Orbital, played a major influence in his style; the chords from Orbital's 1991 hit "Halcyon" can be clearly heard in the Bassnectar track entitled "Empathy", off the Vava Voom album. He has been creating genre-bending music since the 1990s, using a variety of programs such as Vision/OpCode, Reason, and Ableton Live. Bassnectar describes his music as amorphous and ever-changing, which is reflected in the diverse sounds and personalities of his numerous albums, EPs, and podcasts. He has collaborated with and remixed a host of artists and producers, including Lupe Fiasco, Ellie Goulding, Gogol Bordello, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Datsik, ill.Gates, Mimi Page, and Jantsen, among others.
