What is The Other Side?

What is
The Other
Side?

Our team is building the
ultimate immersive art gallery for
The Bassnectar Community
to enjoy and explore.

We’ll be unleashing the motherload: every song, every remix, every mixtape, every video, and every work of art released to date – all in one special place.

For those who want the full experience, our “UNLOCKED” Membership Program will provide exclusive access to unreleased material, behind-the-scenes content, live events, and so much more.

While we are still weeks away from launching The Other Side, this portal offers a glimpse of what’s in store.

If you want to join “UNLOCKED” early, we’re offering an early bird discount – plus you can instantly unlock songs off the new Bassnectar album “The Golden Rule” months before it’s released, and participate in the Bassnectar Community on Discord.

We know you’re
out there…
we can feel you

Every single month, over one million people listen to Bassnectar on Spotify alone. We decided to build a central space for our community to experience new music and the future of Bassnectar culture; with kindness and wellbeing at the core. The Bass Network Team is dedicated to nurturing a vibrant interactive sanctuary and will be moderating all live events on The Other Side, as well as our Community Haven on Discord to ensure everyone who participates is friendly and treats you like family.

How does it work?

The Other Side is a comprehensive amalgamation of everything Bassnectar to date… all compiled in one central place for our community.

Membership is simple and free if you wish, although our team of wizards and nerds have developed a fully maxed out option, jam packed with exclusive unreleased content, known as the “UNLOCKED” membership program.

RELIVE ANOTHER LIVE SET EVERY MONTH

Each month, we’ll be hosting a live event on The Other Side to livestream a work of art together at the same time, in the same moment.
We’ll travel back in time to watch Bassnectar shows from the past, filmed by the crew from the soundboard, with line-in audio, and never-before-seen live footage.

Although these monthly events will be reserved for “UNLOCKED” Members only, we want to share the very 1st episode with everyone, so all “Freestyle” Members are invited to join us for the world premier of RELIVE:

NOTE FROM ERIC AND THE OTHER SIDE TEAM

Every corner of The Other Side is coming to you live the moment it is created by our team of enthusiastic designers. This entire project is unfiltered and interactive and experimental, and built for you to participate as much as you wish. Special keys to unlock various doorways & gates to discover hidden treasure are placed throughout for you to find and win keys which you can use keys to unlock them.

Since this is being created live – in the moment! – expect as many glitches and hiccups as possible and anytime you find one, simply share it with ERIC to win more keys.

We are building this for YOU & really appreciate any feedback you will share with us.

1. What is The Other Side?
Brief answer: The Other Side is a brand new concept to bridge artists and community off grid of social media, an underground broadcasting channel for full-spectrum creative content, an interactive art gallery, a culture label, and a membership-based subscription service to entire universe of Bassnectar, Amorphous Music, and beyond.
2. What is The Portal?
Brief answer: The Other Side has been in development for over two years, and is an immense undertaking. In order to bring it forward as quickly as possible we launched The Portal as essentially an announcement of what’s to come, and provided a presale to the membership programs for early bird fanatics who wanted a discount, as well as early access to exclusive unreleased content.
3. I’ve joined as a member, so now what?
Thank you! Over the next few weeks Over the coming weeks while we finish up The Other Side v1, it’s the calm before the storm. If you joined the Unlocked Program, your membership has not begun officially, and will last an entire year once The Other Side launches in full effect. Until then, please enjoy some content, please share your ideas with us, we love hearing from you! If you are a Freestyle Member, you can listen to one unreleased song off the new album, plus a mixtape, although much more is in store for you once we launch! Most important is that during this time, we are going to premier an episode of RELIVE for all members, Freestyle included!
4. How do I watch Relive?
Once The Other Side launches, and once the Unlocked Membership commences, members will be able to join a live T.O.S. event each month for an exclusive episode of RELIVE - the first season is 12 episodes.
However, we are launching the world premier Feb 5th @ 6pm PST for everyone, so if you are a Freestyle Member this is for you!!!! This will be the only RELIVE experience available to Freestyle members, so please be sure to plan ahead. In order to avoid technical issues with the live broadcast, we are building a virtual arena to accommodate 50,000 attendees, and will be announcing details for an RSVP system next week.
5. Who is on the team? Who is writing the emails and making posts?
Our team is robust, but also expanding constantly. While Lorin curates/creates/handles all of the content creation, he also has been working to design video games, customized sections of The Other Side, and expand Amorphous Music into an omni- genre culture label for all forms of art and imagination, to promote and collaborate with artists across platforms. As usual, he writes most of the announcements and transmissions, but currently we have several people on staff who handle communications, and several others who provide technical support.
If you contact Bass Network, expect to hear from Kate or one of her dozen lead moderators from the Bass Network Team (BNTM). If you contact The Other Side, expect to talk to Eric or others on his dev team. For press, we have a communications group directed by Kate, Samantha, and Auberon.
6. What are the discount codes, how does it work?
We will be using a complex system of promotional codes and gift codes in the future. Our first offer was $100 merch credit for early birds who purchased the Unlocked Membership. Those have all been given away, and several thousand people have received confirmation via email. Soon we will add in-app messaging to make this easier, but if you didn’t get an email and you are an Unlocked Member, please check your spam folder. If you did not receive a confirmation email it likely means you did not qualify for the discount code, but if you sense that is an error, please email support@unlocktheotherside.com and we’ll be happy to help.
7. Is there a customer service email?
Our customer service email is: support@unlocktheotherside.com Please contact us with any account issues. We did not expect the high level of traffic we have received (THANK YOU!) and in addition to shutting down the site many times, we have realized we need to drastically staff up our customer service department. That is happening this week. In the meantime, there may be a slight delay in response while we build up our team to catch up with demand. Thank you for you patience.
8. Will there be live events in person, in real life?
Yes, although it’s not our focus yet. The Other Side will host many live events for Unlocked Members this year, but for in- person events, expect the unexpected. Lorin has not revealed many details yet, but what is clear is he’s not interested in ‘performing’ or being on a ‘stage’ and he is focused on in person events which are immersive, intimate, and interactive... so think wild dance party meets 1990’s full moon party meets a house party meets a Bassnectar curated event meets Deja Voom meets ?????????????

One thing for sure is when these events go on sale, tickets will be available only to Unlocked Members and a guest of their choice. Attendance will be limited to Unlocked Members and a guest of their choice. All attendees will be carefully vetted to ensure our guests are in total compliance with our community values of kindness, compassion, empathy, wellbeing, and respect.
9. What is “The Golden Rule”? When is it coming out?
Over the last several years Lorin has been hyper active in the studio, completing enough content for 2 full length Bassnectar albums, a new Naux Faux EP, and countless side projects. Most notably is the ZF Mudra project which is pretty much a fusion of black metal and death metal influenced garage band style mayhem, and Equipoise which is, for lack of a better word, live ambient music.
Additionally Lorin has been working full time producing other artists, teaching Ableton lessons, coordinating charity projects for Bass Network, and planning the underground radio station for The Other Side. Unlocked Members will get at least one new mixtape per month, and there will be many new treasures released.
Also, as we expand Amorphous Music from a small independent record label to an unlimited culture label, we have been curating visual artists, game designers, tattoo artists, dancers, dance instructors, fashion designers, and producers of all forms of art. There is *A LOT* in the making, so stay tuned.
10. I’m a member, is there a way to access the content direct without scrolling through the portal?
YES, an update is in the works. Also, we have several updates coming next month like improved interfaces for content players, launching the new Locoqueen App, and much more.
