The word ‘ephemeral’ is an adjective to describe something that only lasts for a short amount of time. While the track and the goosebumps it creates are a fleeting sensory stimulation, the lasting effect of Bassnectar’s new “Ephemeral” is not.

The gorgeous downtempo track is designed to leave a permanent mark on the listener’s consciousness with its textured basslines, hypnotic synth and ambient, yet upbeat sound. The organic downtempo quality of “Ephemeral” possesses a nostalgic vibe that will magically transport the listener back to the days of Mesmerizing the Ultra, Lorin Ashton’s fifth full-length album released in 2005.

Ashton eloquently described this track release in an email to his amBASSador team this morning; “This song represents one of the warmest, softest, sweetest directions of my love affair with music: when it is light, and whimsical, and emotions — and reminds me to be grateful for every last detail in life.”

“Ephemeral” is from upcoming album #NVSB, which is scheduled to drop on June 24th. Give this glorious 4-and-a-half-minute track a listen and allow it to weave an ambient web of sweet, whimsical emotions around your mind. It’ll leave you fiendin’ for more of this sound and the rest of NVSB.
