Name Origin:
On the Bassnectar name, Ashton said:
"It's the code-word for a certain frequency of forgotten rage and passion, and it contains intentional elements of secrecy, power, and beauty. The word triggered concepts of honey, fertilization, regeneration, freshness, lavish nature run wild with enthusiasm, all dripping in succulent unison with the force of unstoppable amber richness. I knew immediately that it was a good metaphor for my musical vision."
