Los Angeles (November 9, 2016) – Today, Insomniac’s dedicated bass music brand, Bassrush, introduced its first free label, Bassrush Records. An ambitious leader in the North American bass music scene, Bassrush will continue to expand into new territories and feature free releases on Bassrush.com and the official Bassrush Soundcloud from a stacked roster of fresh faces and established artists in the drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, glitch, trap and bass genres. The first release from Bassrush Records, the “Dendrology” EP from breakout artist LUMBERJVCK, will be available on Wednesday, November 9 here.
“Bassrush has always been at the forefront of discovering and nurturing the best in bass music,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “The launch of Bassrush Records is a long-awaited project that will enhance all forms of bass music and I’m looking forward to launching the label with LUMBERJVCK’s new EP.”
Established in 2002, Bassrush has amassed a portfolio of national sold-out shows, global festival stage takeovers and a dedicated fan following. The first of many free releases to come on Bassrush Records, LUMBERJVCK’S EP will set the pace for the brand’s boundary pushing support of bass culture and breakout talent.
Producer and multi-instrumentalist LUMBERJVCK (Connor Schatzel) quickly built a loyal audience with his quality free releases and genre-bending musicality. After earning success with his track “Click Clvck,” which circled the world on Skrillex’s 2014 Mothership Tour, his momentum has only continued to rise over the last two years with a selection of unprecedented hits on Buygore, Kannibalen, Rottun Recordings, DOOM and Always Never. His 2016 collaboration with 12th Planet on SMOG Records, “Name Bran,” signaled his rise to the top, securing the #4 spot on Beatport’s Dubstep Top 100.
“Dendrology,” LUMBERJVCK’s Bassrush Records debut, features collaborations with Evol Intent, Twin Moons and MineSweepa. The groundbreaking five-track EP follows two years of heavy touring that spanned almost every state in the U.S., as well as Canada, Australia and Europe. Included in his impressive touring schedule were appearances at Insomniac events Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Beyond Wonderland.
