We need to talk about the elephant in the room (and no I’m not talking pink elephants, if you know where I’m going with this). Bassnectar’s Okeechobee set blew that swamp land out the ground and threw Florida off the sea level once more.
Starting the festival season right dropping tracks left and right, the ones we’ve been screeching to hear, or never even heard before. Nectar opened with Mr.Sandman, a timeless classic and went straight into filth dropping his remix of Massive Attack’s Risingson with Clipse’s.
When the Last lyrics over this (very fitting I must say). He seasoned this set even more when he added in Immigrant song by Led Zeppelin into his mix of Thunder Bay by Hudson Mohawke, and totally took the whole flavor on a spin making me question my whole existence when he dropped Sugarcube!!! (FINALLY)
Sugarcube was the Creme de la creme of this set, and if you get your hands on some videos while he dropped it, you’ll hear the same reaction throught the crowd. All in all this set took you on a giant roller coaster ride you wish didn’t end, closing it out with a bang (literally) dropping an unreleased G Jones x Nectar collab called “Underground”. G Jones and Nectar together in the labs makes me feel some type of way because both these men are straight up magic and unreal. I can’t wait to see more of this come our way.
