Real friends push boundaries together, and Bassnectar makes friends with only the realest. He's back on his collaborative streak with part two of his Reflective EP series. Like its predecessor, Reflective (Part 2) drifts through styles and tempos, challenging the monolithic bass king to spread his wings in exciting new directions.

It opens with dreamy synths and airy spaces on the cinematic "Other Worlds," featuring Dorfex Bros. The grime comes in hot and glitchy on "Slather" with Digital Ethos and kicks into hyperdrive, dropping all that delicious bass into your ear-holes just the way you like it. He follows that with percussive-heavy, revolution vibes on "Disrupt The System," a collaboration between PEEKABOO and Azeem that'll have you ready to resist. 

Things get real funky on his G Jones collaboration, an artist who also made an appearance on Reflective (Part1)."Chromatek" is cool and colorful with a space-age hook that's packs hip-hop attitude and even a hint of drum'n'bass. 

He rounds out the release with two remixes, one of Eprom's "Pineapple" and one of Naux Faux's "Psyopia." The "Pineapple" rinse is a wacky, wonky adventure through trap sounds that'll have you seeing patterns in the ceiling, while "Psyopia" is a charming step into a shiny Universe. Its melody would work nicely over a happy hardcore beat, but Bassnectar keeps it steady with a soothing rhythm.

It's a fun sonic adventure from start to finish. Reflective (Part 2) is out now on Amorphous Music. Listen to it in full below.
