Lorin Ashton, the DJ and producer also known as Bassnectar, speaks loudly and carries a big bassline. Loosely defined as dubstep, Bassnectar's signature sub-heavy style -- which pulls together elements from breakbeat, drum-and-bass and hip-hop -- really justifies its own sub-genre, and his distinctive sound has made him one of America's most-popular dance music acts.
